Sailing to St. Croix from St. Thomas or St. John is part of your US Virgin Islands charter itinerary. Your exciting beam reach sail in good conditions may take up to 4 hrs. This is the best place to wet the lines and catch bigger deep-sea fish such as wahoos, sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, and tuna. This means that your dinner may be a delicious self-caught dinner.

A very nice day anchorage for the day at Buck Island Reef National Monument allows for lots of water-sport activities and beach time. Here you can just hang behind your charter yacht in a large variety of inflatable toys or explore the island with a bit of hiking. Some photos by Catamaran Rapscallion.

Elkhorn coral is the major builder of the barrier reef surrounding the island and this makes for good snorkeling. After a day at the beach, return to the Christiansted anchorage for a night on the town. In the morning after breakfast, feel free to visit the old Danish fort Christiansvaern.

A very exciting way to see some of the off-the-beaten-track attractions is to rent a Jeep. When you stop for views you can also hike to scenic spots. You will be able to see St. Thomas in the distance from higher up. Drive to the Western point and visit this quaint colonial town with colorful shops where you can get your souvenir shopping done. This is also the cruise ship dock where tourists depart on a circle drive on St. Croix.

When you pass through the rainforest, stop at the Domino club and enjoy feeding the resident pigs non-alcoholic beer. The frothing foam as they puncture the cans in their powerful jaws. After guzzling the beer, they merely spit the cans to the ground. A new item on the bucket list!

If you like horses, book a trip on the beach with a local outfitter and you will enjoy the Caribbean cowboy experience.

Conditions have to be just right, and one of the best places in the world to find Bioluminescence is Salt River Bay, located on St. Croix. There, outfitters offer night tours, often in glass-bottom boats so tourists can get a close look at the light show from your kayak.

If you are an avid Scuba diver, stopover at Cane Bay dive shop. You will have a chance to wade into the ocean with dive gear and before you know it, you are at the wall. You will only descend as deep as you want to explore the wall dive. The wall itself is so deep, that you will never see the bottom. This adds to the excitement and there you stand a good chance to face a few sharks, enjoy the very colorful sponge coral under flashlight, and look for seahorses.
