 St. John Trunk Bay Beach & Snorkel Tour   [ST01]

Rating: 6

Travel by sea and land to Trunk Bay, where you’ll have 1.5 hours to swim, snorkel (equipment provided), and relax in this beautiful national park. Typical meeting time is 7:15 am. Cruiser comments are mixed: Most report that the “ferry ride” over was “long” and “boring.” Once at Trunk Bay, however, cruisers found it to be “one of the most beautiful” and “breathtaking” beaches. There is a “marked snorkel trail” and some cruisers have seen a “lot of fish,” “stingrays,” and “sea turtles.” Most felt this was the “highlight of their cruise,” while some “were not impressed.” (On Your Own: Take a taxi to Red Hook, a ferry to St. John, and then a taxi to Trunk Bay.)

Rating: 9

Dave stops for a panoramic photo on St. John

Take a boat ride to St. John, then board an open-air safari bus for a guided tour through the unspoiled beauty of this island. Includes a stop at Annaberg Ruins and many stops for photo ops. For all ages. Typical meeting time is 7:15 am. We took this excursion some years ago and absolutely adored it. Cruiser reviews are uniformly positive: Most enjoyed the “boat ride” to “beautiful” St. John, though it was “long.” The “very good driving tour” “makes a lot of stops for pictures” and the driver is both “entertaining” and “knowledgeable.” Some of the roads are “very curvy,” which could bother some. Overall, the tour is a “great way” to “see a lot” of the island.

Rating: 8

Take a ferry to Cruz Bay, where you’ll embark on a two-hour guided hike (1.5 miles). You’ll stop at Lind Point Lookout and Honeymoon Beach for swimming. Typical meeting time is 7:15 am. Cruiser reviews are positive: This “wonderful way to see this island” starts with a “long ferry ride” then a short walk through the city to meet your “knowledgeable guide.” The “very easy” hike is “informative,” with a look at “local flora and fauna” (“bring bug spray!”). At the end of the “hot” hike, you get 30 min. to “frolic” in Honeymoon Bay (“wear your swimsuit under your clothes”).

 Tree Limin' Extreme Zipline Adventure   [ST51]

Would you like your ziplining to come with a panoramic view of Magens Bay and the British Virgin Islands? This facility has six ziplines, eight platforms, and two sky bridges, including a “yo-yo” zip that goes forwards and back! You’ll be met at the pier, weigh-in (must be 70–275 lbs. and no taller than 6.5 ft.), and be transported to St. Peter Mountain. After receiving your gear and a safety talk it’s up to the top of the course in a 6-wheel drive Pinzgauer transport. The next 2 hours will zip by, then stop at a local watering hole on the way back.
