Buck Island Snorkeling
After a scenic ride across the island, you'll have a 40 minute powerboat ride from St. Croix's north shore to the Buck Island reef for an hour's worth of snorkeling! This activity usually takes about 4 hours in total, and has a moderate activity level rating.
Price: Adults expect to pay $99.
Booking Advice: While this is a popular excursion, if you just want to snorkel & don't really care whether or not you're at Buck Island, third party excursions for two hours at St. Croix's West End provides a beautiful experience for about half the cost.
SCUBA St. Croix
Considered to be one of the top dive spots in the world, St. Croix is a great place for certified and beginning divers alike! Higher priced dives take about 3 hours altogether, are two tank dives, and typically visit 3 wreck sites as well as virgin coral reef.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $109 to $124 through the cruise lines.
Booking Advice: Experienced, certified divers can find two tank dives for about $20 less per person through third party vendors. SCUBA excursions are typically considered to be strenous.
Scenic Driving Tours
To just take in all that awesome natural scenery, and see those historical and cultural points of interest, these 3.5 hour tours might be just perfect!
Price: Adults expect to pay $69.
Booking Advice: This activity is considered to be easy. Some walking might be involved, and we do suggest that you bring your camera.
If you love biking, this 12 mile ride through the lush West End countryside of St. Croix might just be perfect! Most of these excursions take about 3 hours, and give you a wonderful Caribbean experience!
Price: Adults expect to pay $66.
Booking Advice: This excursion, rated as strenuous, is certainly not for everyone. There are physical retrictions, and (of course) the understandable expectation that participants know how to comfortably ride a bicycle. Of course you can rent a bicycle for about 35 USD per day and explore the island on your own.
West End Tours
This tour, which lasts almost 4 hours, takes you to the At Whim Plantation Museum and the Botanical Gardens, where you will have opportunity to appreciate St. Croix's history and culture which extends back to 100 AD. Follow up this educational and scenic jaunt with a visit to the distillery where Cruzan Rum is produced, and you have the makings of a fine time on land!
Price: Adults expect to pay $78.
Booking Advice: As walking is involved, this excursion receives a moderate activity rating. On Sundays, the distillery is closed and participants instead visit the Lavaetz Museum. Third party vendors do offer some very competitive prices.
