Skip this port....waste of time.
Very friendly. We had a fun day with the really nice guys running the dive boat out of The Dive Shop in Philipsburg. (Just ask any taxi driver and they can take you there " The Dive Shop") This was so much cheaper and had more time....less people than the ship excursion. Can not say enough good things about the people that were operating the boat. They stop for some good snorkeling and take you out to Maho Beach to see the planes come in over the beach so low you feel like you can touch them....they even provide all your gear, kayak and paddle boards at no extra charge. Great way to spend the day.
Very lovely. Take the Red Hook Ferry to St John and go snorkeling or to the beach at Trunk Bay. Lots of taxis... go on your own...the ship excursions are over priced and its like being in a herd of cattle....very easy and safe to go to the same places on your own.
Take the Speedy Ferry over to Virgin Gorda and go to the Baths....very worthwhile.....would not want to miss this...check it out on you tube....amazing.....take your snorkle gear and be sur to go through the caves....not hard just wonderful!
