St. Croix Water sports has a wonderful assortment of water activities to do. Michelle and her boys were very accommodating and helpful. The snorkeling is amazing and to be able to swim with turtles, sting rays, star fish, etc.

Protestant Cay is a beautiful beach and the hotel was at one time very special. I owned a time share there years ago so I am familiar with the property. I took my friends there because the beach is so lovely, however, we could only stay a short time. The reason: Loud, shrieking voice over the intercom announcing crab races.... More

Easy to access with a lot of services and fabulous snorkeling. I went twice a week and saw magnificent sea life, including the elusive eagle rays..

We visited this beach with four other couples from our ship and had a great time. Round trip cab available but had to wait until it was full for the return trip to the ship. The beach on one side required beach shoes but the other side did not. Chairs were available for $20 for two and we were able... More

This beach is so much for kids and adults. Rent a jet ski or just have a great lunch. They will deliver a bucket of beer on ice right to your beach chair!

Protestant Cay is also known as Hotel on the Cay because there is a hotel. It is a $5.00 cash round trip, one minute ride, from Christiansted, between the boardwalk and the Fort. There is shadow under the trees. They also rent umbrellas for $10.00 and lounge chairs for $5.00. The beach is nice and the water is calm, clear... More

A great beach to spend the whole day at. They have food, drinks and water sports. Well worth the $5.00 ferry ride over to Protestant Cay!

Food is clean and good and the show is fun. Nothing to write home about but taking the water taxi and enjoying the show was great both times I went. It's a great place to view sunsets also. Marina is such a lovely old-timer. Some things just have to be experienced. Decent food and decent prices at the Tuesday night... More
