St. Croix, originally Santa Cruz, was discovered by Columbus on his second voyage to the New World. It is one of three U.S .Virgin Islands. You can get there with a U.S. Drivers License (No passport required yet) and use American currency. Called the "Wayward Virgin" St Croix is located 40 miles southwest of the island chain and is rarely visited by cruise ships as are the other islands. Peaceful and serene, the island is 25 miles long and five miles wide with a tropical rainforest at one end and a desert at the other. Christiansted is one of the most quaint towns in the Caribbean, with its covered walk-ways, buildings, Fort and Governor's Palace all built with brick from Denmark carried for ballast on incoming ships. The tropical waters around St. Croix are home to Buck Island National Park, a day sail away with beautiful beaches and fantastic coral reefs to snorkel and explore. (Call Capt. Heinz at 340.718.3161). Davis Bay is a worldwide destination for scuba divers who come to dive the Puerto Rican Trench and its black coral beauty. The island has ruins of 150 windmills and great plantations, including Whim Greathouse Museum, open to the public. We also have fine dining in a host of restaurants, great shops, a botanical garden, world class golf courses, a casino, kayaking, horseback riding, and body and wind surfing. Home to Cruzan Rum -- voted the best rum in the world -- and Captain Morgan, you can visit their factories and see how rum is made as well as take back 6 bottles of booz, duty free as long as one of them is rum!
