  1. Port Zante is one of the few ports in the English-speaking Caribbean that boasts of a twin-pier that can accommodate the world’s largest cruise vessels.
  2. The Deepwater Port offers Transshipment services since 2005 in partnership with Bernuth Lines of Miami. By using St. Kitts as a transshipment center, Vessels can now discharge their southbound cargo in a central location for onward shipment to regional destinations such as Dominica, St. Vincent, Trinidad and Guyana.
  3. Upon becoming an international airport, the name of the airport was changed from Golden Rock Airport to the Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw International Airport – bearing the name of a great pioneer who have helped shaped this great nation.
  4. The St. Christopher Air & Sea Ports Authority is the only Port Authority in the Caribbean with a Meteorological Department Attached to its Services. 

The deep water harbor handles the island’s container and cargo traffic and other cruise business. The harbor is also a key player in the Caribbean’s container transshipment sector.

Port Zante is purely for cruise ships, allowing the latest generation of vessels to berth in St. Kitts.

The ferry terminal provides daily services to Nevis as well as services to other

destinations. The Basseterre Ferry Terminal has a pier of 200 ft and can accommodate three vessels that provide daily services between St. Kitts and Nevis.  There are also chartered trips to St. Eustatius (Statia), Saba and St. Maarten.

The Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport handles over 400,000 passengers each year. It is also home to a wide variety of aircraft.

These modern facilities form a key element of our islands infrastructure but also help maintain and stimulate vital foreign investment – mostly in the tourism sector.
