St. John Shore Excursion Guide

Cruise lines offer a number of shore excursions for sale when visiting St. John. For your convenience, we have provided a sample listing below of the shore excursions typically sold by cruise lines that visit St. John. You may wish to check out 3rd party shore excursions in St. John to get a wider variety of options to choose from.

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

Honeymoon Bay Beach Excursions

One of the more romantic excursions sails you across Pillsbury Sound on a catamaran to a mooring close enough for you to reach Honeymoon Bay Beach by swimming or via dinghy. Once you arrive at this beautiful, secluded beach in St. John's USVI national park, there's tome to snorkel or just enjoy paradise. Drinks and snacks are often provided.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay from $49 to $79.
 
Booking Advice: This excursion gets a moderate activity level rating, and lasts from 4.5 to 6.5 hours.

Powercat to St. John

These 4 hour or half day excursions take you to the “emerald paradise” of St. John vis power boat, where you'll enjoy opportunities to SCUBA, beachcomb, and swim. Journeys back to St. Thomas include the chance to see St. John's scenic inlets.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay $79 through the cruise lines.
 
Booking Advice: This excursion receives a moderate activity level. If you just want to sightsee and sail, third party vendors have some nice bargains for charters (for at least 4 people).

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.

3rd party shore excursions often have advantages over shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Third party shore excursions can be less costly and feature smaller groups than shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Often, the vendors you buy from directly are the same vendors used by the cruise lines themselves.
 
The benefit of buying shore excursions from the cruise line is that the vendors and pre-screened for safety and reliablity. While cruise lines shore excursions can be more expensive than buying direct from a local vendor, there is certainly peace of mind that the cruise line will be using a reliable, safe and trusted vendor. If you experience a problem with the vendor on a cruise line-sold shore excursion, the shore excursion managers onboard the cruise ship will likely be an invaluable resource to help settle disputes.
