A must do if you are staying near Frederiksted. Cool locals tip - if you are brave take a dive from the Pier. There's a ladder to climb back up. Also the snorkeling is great near there, but watch out for rare hammer heads. We didn't see any though but heard from the locals they show up time to time.

Amazing fish at midnight - Walk in groups and enjoy tarpon, rays, turtles and a bunch of local fishermen and women.

There is a nice boardwalk and the town is small and looks lovely. Too bad it seems to come alive only on cruise ship days. When we drove there on a Monday early afternoon all shops were closed. It is a short driving distance to the best beaches of St. Croix, on the west side, Sand Point beach, Sand Castle... More

The pier is the ONLY reason we came to St. Croix. The night dive to see the Seahorses, Lobster, and Octopus is excellent.... As long as SCUBA Dive shop provides the guides to point out where the critters are hiding.

Frederiksted looks like a stage that is set and waiting for something to happen. The town makes me sad because I see the potential but all it needs is some more activity from cruise ships. St Thomas is overcrowded and St Croix is the sleepy island just waiting to burst upon the scene. Bring the cruise ships and watch a... More

If your ever in Frederiksted, if you only do one thing book this dinner cruise. The maximum amount of people is 6, around $100.00 a piece, but well worth it. They rotate their chefs for a 5 course dinner. It was the highlight of my trip.

By day or night, diving the pier is not to be missed! The variety of sea life is exceptional by any standard.
