Beach & Snorkel
This excursion, which lasts about 4 hours, takes you on a tour boat to St. John's Cruz Bay, where you'll see Caneel Bay Plantation among other sites en route to Trunk Bay. Trunk Bay has a lovely beach, and an unusual 225 yard underwater snorkel trail where you can view coral reefs and fishes!
Price: Adults expect to pay $67.
Booking Advice: This excursion is generally given a moderate activity rating. Third party excursion prices are highly competitive with the cruise lines, and well worth considering for experienced swimmers.
Walking Tour & Shopping
While this excursion takes about 6.5 hours, the actual walking tour through Cruz Bay only takes about half that time up front. You'll see The Battery, a Lutheran Church dating back to the 1600's, and the Sprauve Family Library among other points of interest before ending this tour at Wharfside Landing. Then you'll have at least 3 hours of leisure time for shopping, beach lounging, or embarking on another excursion! For the money, it's a great way to experience the island!
Price: Adults expect to pay $40.
Booking Advice: This excursion is typically considered to be difficult or strenuous because of the walking involved, so there are physical restrictions

St. John Your Way
A tour boat picks you up and drops you off pier side, for one thing. Since the ferry to St. John costs 50 USD, you've already saved some cash. Once you've arrived to Cruz Bay, you have a little over 2 hours to enjoy the town, or visit the splendid Westin Hotel or Trunk Bay Beach.
Price: Adults expect to pay $34 through cruise lines.
Booking Advice: This excursion will take a total of four hours, and rates as easy on the activity level scale. It will be your responsibility to pay for taxi service if you so choose, and to be at the departure dock on time. The tour boat does drop you right by Cruz Bay, so it's unlikely that you'll need a taxi. Should you need a taxi, the stands are also near by.
