We booked the St. Thomas Ocean Race through the cruise ship. It was a fantastic experience. Each participant could choose if they wanted a "job" on the ship. We elected to participate and had a great time! After the race, each of us were allowed a chance to take the wheel. We would absolutely do this again! Since our excursion wasn't until 1PM, we also bought tickets to ride the gondolas up to Paradise Point. We haven't ever been to St Thomas, and the view was beautiful. It was $20 a ticket and aside from the view at the top, there's a bar and several local vendors selling their wares. Also a nice photo op (for a charge) with parrots. We won't do it again, but it was a nice one time experience. It did seem to get very crowded around 3PM, so I would recommend going early.
