Some of the best vacation tours I've ever had were last week on the island of St. Croix: Captain Llewellyn Charter trimaran trip to Buck Island - knowledgeable, relaxed, excellent host, went above and beyond in every way, Virgin Kayak Bio-Luminescence tour - amazing sparkling glowing water with an amazing sparkling host, Tan Tan Tours - jeep trip around the island and to tide pools over terrain you would swear was impassable with charming and fun guide/drivers.

In each case the experience was worth more than the cost. I could not believe how fantastic each of these unique adventures were, how well we were treated, how above and beyond each guide went. And I am not all that easy to please! All three were truly extraordinary.

We drove right on up the driveway without any problem in a little rental sedan. It's just off Mahogany Road, which is one of the main roads on the west end of the island -- goes right through the gorgeous rainforest. Nothing spooky about it. Open daily 0900-1700. There was a very, very nice gentleman working there when we arrived. He showed us around and then gave us time to look without bothering us. Very nice stuff. Also noteworthy is the fact that they are not cutting down trees -- they turn fallen mahogany trees (due to storms, etc.) into art.

On a recent trip to St Croix, we took a spin to the west side of the island, where tucked away up a windy, unpaved road in the rainforest is a jewel called St Croix LEAP. This is a wood-working shop set among plantation ruins, where artisans carve and sell an array of beautiful mahogany items such as cutting boards and hand-held mirrors. No 2 items are exactly alike. We highly recommend a visit to this workshop (a 4-wheel drive is helpful but not necessary.) But don't expect a fancy showroom-- this is, after all, a workshop in the woods!
