Things-to-do and Places-to-Stay

St. Croix offers a wide range of accommodations.  Frederiksted is located on the calm west end of the island.  Since this is the leeward side, the waters are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and diving.  One of our boats leaves from the Frederiksted Pier, so staying in Frederiksted will put you seconds from the boat.  The Salt River area is located on the North Shore between the two towns.  Salt river is a national park that has great historic value.  There is an underwater canyon that runs straight out of the lagoon that offers some nice wall diving spots.  In addition, the Salt River lagoon is a great place for a night kayak.  Christiansted is the other town located almost in the middle of the north shore of the island.  This town offers a nice harbor, restaurants, and the most shopping on the island.

Points Of Interest:
One of the fun things to do if you decide to do some sight seeing is to start driving (remember... drive on the left) and just stop as the spirit moves you. If you feel a bit more structured or just want to make sure you visit some of the more well known spots then here is some information on places you may want to visit while on vacation:
 
• Point Udall is the farthest eastern point of the United States. The views from this monument are breathtaking.

• Norma's Mt. Pelier Domino Club is in the rainforest. While a bit out of the way, it is home to he world famous Beer Drinking Pigs. Stop and have a cool one or for those looking for a sense of adventure... a shot of Norma's homemade herbed rum called Mamawanna.

• Fort Christiansvaern Fort Complex is located in Christiansted overlooking the Bay. A unique tour of how both commerce was operated and what it was like to a soldier a couple of hundred years ago! And while your there take a walk down the Boardwalk and visit some of the shops and restaurants there.

• Beaches, Beaches, Beaches are all public and absolutely beautiful. Take a drive and just stop along the road, or set your destination. Try Cane Bay, Carambola, and Rainbow Beach, or check out the less traveled spots, like the hike to the beach at Jack and Isaac's.

• The Fredricksted Pier and Front Street is quite a wonderful experience as you walk along the oceanfront street and then down the pier which once served the numerous cruise ships that visited the island.

• Divi Carina Bay Casino is the place to visit if your feeling lucky as part of your island experience.

• The Cruzan Rum Factory has been producing its world famous product on St Croix since 1760. A very interesting tour is followed up with samples as you leave.
