St. John is incredible when it comes to natural beauty—both on land and underwater. Waterlemon Cay is a bit of a trek to get to, but it’s totally worth it for the snorkeling. On our most recent visit, we swam with six sea turtles, a...More
A secluded rocky beach. The reef is beautiful on one side of the cay, and seems to have been wrecked by the hurricane on the other side. Lots of beautiful coral, fish, sting rays, and sometimes turtles in the grass bed on the way out...More
I've been here twice now, once in 2001 and once this year, and both times it was worth the hike. The trail starts at the Annaberg parking area and it's a good walk out to the beach but worth it. I've swam to the island...More
This is a must do! Find some snorkel gear and get to Water Lemon Cay! We saw an octopus, beautiful fish, sea turtles, and the water was amazing. Mostly secluded area but it felt safe because I could see the bottom of the ocean the...More
This was a snorkeling adventure we'll talk about for our lifetime. Please note that while our kids are young they are very strong swimmers. Here's what you need to know.
1. Walk to the Cay using the coastline trail at the bottom of the hill...More
The hike to Waterlemon Cay is probably a little over a mile each way, level, and an easy walk. Visit the ruins while you’re here and enjoy being away from any signs of civilization. During our hike we noticed a couple large boats washed way...More
I went the first week in August and was not disappointed. If you want to get close for a short swim out it’s about a one mile walk from the parking lot. If you don’t mind a longer swim you can go a 500 or...More
I'm assuming you're cruising into St Thomas.
By the time you take a ferry to St John (which is doable) I don't think you'll will be able to do waterlemon cay.The cruise ships just do not allow enough time on the island ....

Actually, I think you may be asking the wrong reviewer: I have lots to share from our three weeks scouring St. John shore snorkel sites, but we did not swim right at Tektite (drove by it to snorkel a nearby site). If you are chartering a boat, I'd think that area, as well as the other nearby points (especially Kiddell, which is not so accessible by road at this time) are great choices. However, the beauty of that island is that fantastic sites are readily accessible by jeep or a short walk.
First trip to St John in July> Do I snorkel Waterlemon Cay Clockwise or counterclockwise to minimize current on return trip?

Just got back from St. John. Thought I'd post some things before I get busy and forget! We rented a Jeep Wrangler from Thrifty on STT. No problems. As has been widely posted, they aren't directly at the airport, but picked us up within 10 minutes, took about a 5 minute ride to their place, and we were ready to go in another 15 minutes. The Jeep was fine all week, no problems. I was glad it was just the two of though; I think if we had more people (or a child) we definitely would have...More

This morning got up early and drove out to Leinster Bay with the intention of taking the trail, if open, to Brown Bay. Firstly the drive on the North Shore Road was easy. The condition of that road until Maho is excellent. At Maho it goes down to single lane. After Maho out to both Francis and Annaberg the road is in good condition. The vegetation backing on to Maho has been annihilated. It is one huge jumble of broken tree limbs. The mangroves that lined the road to Annaberg are as...More
