Parasailing, Windsurfing & Surfing

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the island from this unique perspective. The steady 10-to-20-knot winds out of the east, beautiful scenery and the combination of smooth, sheltered water and churning waves – make St. Croix an ideal place to learn and develop windsurfing skills. At Salt River, where the winds are the strongest and the surf is at its highest, you’ll often find a few avid surfers trying to catch a wave.

Sailing & Boating

The U.S. Virgin Islands are a sailor's paradise due to the constant trade winds, generally calm seas, and mountainous terrain which provides excellent line-of-site navigation. You can arrange excursions at the wharf in Christiansted, Green Cay Marina, Salt River Marina, and at St. Croix Marine.

Deep-Sea Fishing

Charter boats leave from the wharf in Christiansted, St. Croix Marina in Gallows Bay, Green Cay Marina and the Salt River Marina for excursions to the prime fishing grounds of Lang Bank. Depending on the season you visit, you can catch Blue Marlin, Billfish, Wahoo, Dolphin and Tuna.

Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

The reefs surrounding St. Croix offer both easy beginner’s dives and enough challenges to hold the interest of the most seasoned divers for weeks. For the novice, one of the best introductory dives anywhere is the Frederiksted Pier. The pier’s substantial pilings are covered with brilliant red and yellow sponges, and sea horses. Just north of Frederiksted is one of the most impressive wreck dives in St. Croix. Cane Bay, on the northern shore of St. Croix, attracts divers and snorkelers alike.
