St John Island Sightseeing Tour from St Thomas

Summary

Following convenient pickup from the cruise port or your hotel in St Thomas, transfer to the ferry terminal.  During the short journey to St John, take in the Caribbean scenery, including the expanse of aquamarine water and the neighboring British Virgin Islands.  Disembark on St John, the most unspoiled of the Virgin Islands due to a generous donation from the Rockefeller family that made 3/4 of it the Virgin Islands National Park. You'll be picked up by a local guide, an island resident, who can give you the inside scoop on what life is like there. Travel around the island, visiting highlights such as the 1800s-era Annaberg Plantation, one of the 25 active sugar production facilities on the island. Stop at the picturesque Trunk Bay to see the pristine beach and get photo ops from the Caneel Bay overlook.  At the conclusion of your tour, return to St Thomas via ferry, landing back at the Red Hook Ferry Dock.

Why take this tour?

Depart St. Thomas for a visit to the smallest of the US Virgin Islands, St. John, and take in the history of the island as well as its majestic natural beauty on this half-day tour. See an old Danish sugar plantation, a national park, and various lookouts along the way. Start by boarding a ferry that takes you across the short 4 miles (6.4 km) of water between St. Thomas and St. John, where your tour bus awaits you. With your local guide, stop first at the Virgin Islands National Park to take in beautiful mountain vistas, impossibly blue water, and verdant coastal greenery. Enjoy the panoramic displays of white-sand beaches meeting mountain forests at your next 2 stops, Caneel Bay and Trunk Bay. At Annaberg, see the remnants of a 1780s sugar mill plantation. Wonder at the ruins of the factory, windmill, and slave quarters as you learn about the island's Danish settlers. Finish with a drive back to the ferry terminal for your cruise back to St. Thomas.
