THINGS TO DO IN ST CROIX
St. Croix is off the beaten path for the Yacht Charter in the Virgin Islands. However, it is a perfect destination with beaches, reefs for snorkeling, wall scuba diving, and a bio-luminescence bay for kayaking in the early evening. In addition, there are historical landmarks. Frederiksted and Christiansted are charming towns reflecting the European influence of architecture, town layout, and buildings.
A short sail from St. Croix is the marked snorkel trail and one of the most beautiful beaches in the Virgin Islands, which is a National Park.
Starting your yacht charter in St. Croix and cruising the area before sailing for the British Virgin Islands, then St. Thomas is an option.
