It was nice with the vendors while the cruise ship was there outside the dock, but the problem was that we weren't able to get into the dock area when the cruise ship was sitting there.

Nice pier to walk out on and look around at the views. We saw people snorkeling and heard it was a great area for this, we could see down into the water some so we understood why

Don't expect a huge coral reef, but some lovely coral formations have formed around the pier pilings and a couple of broken pilings from an old pier destroyed by a hurricane in the late 80s. There are several relatively easy ways to enter the water and get out. Ask someone at N2 the Blue around the corner from the Pier.... More

Don't miss this. Day or night diving, it's fantastic. The right side has sea horses and very shallow columns. Take a boat ride to the end of pier and see turtles, spotted eagle rays and well encrusted pillars. The left side starts as ruble but leads you to the dolphins of the old pier. BEAUTIFUL. Spend some time on the... More

This is where our cruise ship docked and is also a local attraction of sorts. Frederiksted is very quiet compared to the other Caribbean ports we visited. There is a nice beach within walking distance just past the fort. Nobody bothers you so you can simply enjoy the visit.

We thought there might be some charm in Fredriksted, and there are some quaint little streets, but the pier is, well, a pier. No amenities, no shade, just functional.

If you are a beginner snorkeler, make sure someone assists you getting in and out of the water and where to go. Also, we were warned more than once: do not leave any belongings in site. No snorkeling allowed while a cruise ship is in port. All that said, you will be rewarded with a great snorkel experience. SOO many... More

I read recommendations that this was one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. We visited the pier specifically for that reason. We did see many fish and the coral growths along the pier pilings were cool. However, I think this spot is better as a dive rather than a snorkel. We snorkeled at several other locations and found...
