In my opinion, kiteboarding is the most awesome sport for anyone, young or old. It's totally addictive. What's more, I think Bill is the most awesome instructor. I didn't actually take lessons from him as I've been kiting several years now and went there for a beautiful, warm place to kite, but I spoke with those taking lessons, saw what he was doing, went out with him as he showed me some great waves, went on some of his downwinder trips (led by his wife), and he gave me some valuable pointers. He's a true professional who is so friendly (both him and his wife).

What's more, his rates are very low. I don't know how he can give so much for so little. Please consider giving him a good tip!

I've had the best kite-week ever in St. Croix. Thanks Bill and Isabelle for your help!

If you like the beautiful Caribbean water, I suggest you give Bill a call.

This being the largest of the US Virgin Islands I thought it would be hugely commercialised and full of tourists like ourselves. How wrong could I be; we were only there for one day on our cruise but the island was our favourite of them all. At present only one cruise line visits the island resulting in a very pleasant experience and a feeling of not being crowded, especially in the pleasant shopping area near the ship. There is a beautiful stretch of beach nearby with a beach view snack bar, also near the ship is a small harbour with a few luxury boats. We visited Christainsted on the other side of the island, a small town with a beautiful tranquil harbour with a few small cafes,bars and a good selection of shops. There is a small island about 100 yards from the harbour containing a hotel complex, which looked idyllic. The scenery of the island is magnificent and mainly unspoilt, I would recommend a tour including a trip through the rain forest.

I would recommend a visit to this island if you need the prefect get away from it all experience.
