My husband and I basically invented our own excursion lol. We took the local bus from west end bus terminal for $1.50pp to Nelson's Dockyard (don't miss the bakery behind the museum!), a water taxi ($4pp round trip) from the Dockyard across to Galleon Beach and a hiking trail (steep and hot...non-hikers be warned!) up to Shirley Heights. Shirley Heights was beautiful, and three kind British ladies showed us a different path down the mountain that went all along the rocky/cactus-lined coastline. It was stunning! Then back across on the water taxi/through the Dockyard/local bus back to the ship. We had SO MUCH FUN exploring on our own! It was a great, inexpensive day.
