I've traveled to this island a few times so my perspective on the pier is probably going to be a bit different than most. I'm rating this attraction a four. The F'sted Pier has come a long way. All cruise lines that call on St. Croix dock in F'Sted. The Port Authority and Dept of Parks and Recreation have done... More

Though the Frederiksted Pier area seemed rather seedy and we were a bit concerned, the snorkeling was the best we encountered during our vacation on St Croix. Snorkeling in St Croix was definitely not the quality we have experienced on Cayman Island or Bonaire, And, if snorkeling is your 'thing' I would not recommend St Croix.

May be the best night dive in St. Croix. Vibrant life including sea horses, octopus and vibrant hard and soft corals. Very little current and swimming required. You can just camp out and watch all the night life in front of you. Highly recommended.

There was a diver with a camera on a stick and as soon as the dive master pointed out something all we could see was the camera and stick. Don't be that guy. Not scarey at all.

First on all you want to do the dives when there are no cruse ship docked. The pier is probable about 1/8 of a mile long. I did 2 night dives and 1 day light dive under the pier at Frederiksted. The water is shallow so you can easily get an hour out of an 80 cu. ft. tank. On... More

We were there during the off season so it was quite. There wasn't much going on so we just waked out and enjoyed the view. From here you have a good view of Frederiksted, Sandy Point, and Rainbow beaches. We came back later to jump off the pier. That was fun. at one point I was amazed looking below the... More

Took my sons on the pier for an afternoon walk and it was well worth it! The boys were fascinated by the people fishing, swimming and the breath taking view. There's also zumba on Tuesdays & Thursdays.

The day we visited, a cruise ship had just docked and the town was swarming with tourists from the ship. There were a lot of street vendors selling the usual souvenirs. The town is attractive but tiny. Not much to do there other than go to the beach or grab a sandwich. The local shopkeepers were friendly and helpful.

It's a nice walk along the Frederiksted Pier. On Cruise Ship Day all the vendors are lined up there. There are also a few good restaurants within walking distance. Other than that there is not much going on there during the week.
