ShoreTrips says...

Forget cars on this island - if you rent one, you can't park it anywhere. My suggestion is to walk the streets, cab any moderate distance, and rent one of these. The location is a hop and a skip from the pier but, if you don't have one reserved, they will be gone. Reserve through ShoreTrips and then scoot around to all the famous bays and beaches from the water.

Enjoy a day of Adventure....Rent a dinghy and explore the tropical turquoise waters and white sandy beaches of "naturally" beautiful St. John in the US Virgin Islands!
Begin with a video of instruction and basic boating practices. You will also talk to the expert who will help you determine your direction and a plan. A cooler can be provided full of ice. There are small shops and purveyors near the dock where you can buy some beverages and snacks or lunch.

The famous beaches and offshore reefs for snorkeling are only a short dinghy ride away. You can set your own itinerary and enjoy "the best day of your vacation" visiting some of the island's best kept secrets...alone and away from the crowds and noise.

Our fleet of "Caribe C-14" dinghies are fun, affordable, stable, safe, and meticulously maintained. They are recognized worldwide for their unique design that insures stability, safety, and security in all situations.

The coastline of St. John is perfect for this type of lazy relaxed activity. You can bring your dinghy to any of the beaches and sunbathe or snorkel. Just remember to tie up your boat first! It will be a long walk back!
