“Panhandlers”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Great food and scenic; but watch the panhandlers. Got followed by a homeless woman, who cursed us very very loudly.

“Not the best place to go to”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

The pier is really for the cruise ship, once that departs the place is a ghost town and is not the safest to go to. We were told though at 8pm to go to the end of the pier and see sea turtles which we opted not to do for safety reasons. If you do got there, park close to the pier and stay around that area

“Cruiseship days”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

This is a nice site on cruiseship days. There is a lot of local color and lots going on. If Richard Schrader has his booth set up, buy one of the books he has written about local life. The Fort is full of info on the slave trade as it relates to St Croix - very well done. It also has a nice gift shop and display of colonial furniture. The Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts is a few blocks down the waterfront, and well worth the walk - local artists dislpay their work there, gift area too. Blue Moon restaurant is great - come for Sunday jazz breakfast. Polly's has the best coffee, and creative food. If the ships aren't in, you can walk to the end of the pier, which is nice. Local folks swim and fish from it, so stop and talk!

“Small and very clean.”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Only one cruise ship docked and a short walk to the main tourist area. Plenty of taxis await you or you can walk past the secured area and haggle with a taxi for a cheaper price. Felt safe and the walk along the beach was very close.

“We did a great ~80 minute dive to cap off our trip”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

We had heard that there was abundant marine life on the pier so we headed over to N2the blue to get kitted up. Derrick took care of us there and we walked right out to the pier and dove in. Lots of sponges, corals and fish to be found and I would say it's a great dive for the novice beginner to a relaxing journey for the seasoned pro. And you don't have to pay boat fees!
