Default Re: Help with Trunk bay excursion in St. John

Trunk Bay is beautiful but it gets very crowded, all the ships excursions end up here. If you want to go to St. John i would suggest another beach and doing it on your own. Its cheaper and you get more time, we did a ships excursion once and felt very hurried and only ended up having maybe 1 hour on the beach tops. You need to take a taxi from the pier to Red Hook Harbor where you grab the water taxi over to Cruz Bay then you grab an open-air jitney to the beach. There are many beaches that do not charge an admission fee unlike Trunk Bay - check out this web site www.vinow.com. We really like Cinnamon Bay Beach. Bring your own snorkel gear if you have it, leave your fins at home and rent them (really cheap) at the beach.
