For private trips exploring the Virgin Islands we recommend Cruise Ship passengers take a taxi from their ship to Red Hook to save time and make the best of your boat day.
All cruise ships dock on the South Western side of St. Thomas, but our trips feature St. John and the surrounding islands on the Eastern side of the Virgin Islands. The trade winds and currents in this area go from East to West, so the boat ride from your cruise ship to St. John can be very wet and rough and could take up to an hour or more. A short and scenic 20 minute taxi ride from your ship will be more enjoyable and you will start your boat day in the protected waters of the Pillsbury Sound.
If weather permits, we can drop you back off at your cruise ship at the end of your boat day for an additional $300. The ride will be with the current and wind behind us, making for a much more comfortable ride along the beautiful southern Coast of St. Thomas. When you make your reservation, just let us know if you would like to add this additional service.
