Hi Darlene,
You can do a ship excersion that goes to Trunk Bay, or simply get a cab at the pier and take it to Red Hook Ferry, which will take you to St. Johns. Once there another short cab ride to Trunk Bay. You can rent the snorkel equipment right there on the beach, or if you have your own, just bring it along. A lot of ship tours will end up there just before noon, so if you head out early, less crowds and you can still get back in time for some shopping. You can shop in the downtown area or if you are running out of time, right there at the pier.

St. Johns is a beautiful islands, if you can get there either on your own or with a tour, I'm sure you will love it, enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

You can do this tour on your own. Think the cab ride was $8pp one way and the ferry was $3 or $4 one way. Wasn't much from the ferry to Trunk Bay and another $4 to get into the park. Total for the day around $30pp. They don't have any snorkeling tours where they take you out on a boat that I am aware of for St. John. Trunk Bay has an underwater path with little signs in the water that you can follow around. If the water is real calm it is great. We were there in November an I found the water too rouch for me. However, it is really a nice day, great beach, etc.

Enjoy!

This is really a stupid question but does Trunk Bay rent snorkeling equipment AND life jackets???? Do you think it would be better to go with a ship excursion for snorkeling with a family (grandparents and kids ) of 14? Guess it would be cheaper to do on our own or should we pay for the convenience and ease of ship excursion?

Hi Lori,
No questions here are stupid, we've all been there and done that, so don't worry. Yes, they do rent the snorkeling equipment down at the beach in Trunk Bay, but not sure about the life vest??? I usually do wear one too when snorkeling.

I would definately try to do that on your own with such a large group, will safe lots of money and its relatively easy to get there on your own.

Have a wonderful trip.
