Default St Thomas Excursion

I had heard about a tram in St. Thomas that is right by the cruise port. Has anyone taken the tram up to Paradise Point? I am interested in trying this and would love to hear from anyone who has experienced this. Thanks!

Have not done it yet, but you can do it and come and go as you please. I forget the cost, but you ride it up, there are lookout points, restaurant, and gift shops. You can come down as you please. We are scheduled for an excursion at noon, so we are going up first thing off the boat, then head to our excursion. Have a good time. Everyone says this is a must do and not to miss it. If you go to search, and put in St.Thomas tram it will come up and you can see it. I am thinking it was around 7.00 per person, but could be wrong on that. Have fun!

I believe the price is about $18 pp. (round trip) On their website they do have some coupons for drinks and shirts. If you are going to have a Bushwacker, print off a coupon!

Enjoy!

Sheffie:

I love the Mark Twain quote on your page. It is so true.

As for the St. Thomas tram ride, we are looking to do it on our April sailing.

It looks awesome. Have to try a Bailey's Bushwacker.

Believe the ride is $16 per adult and $8 for under 12. About 7 minutes up and 7 minutes down and can stay as long as you would like.

Paradise Point has a website. Google search Paradise Point and all the prices, times of shows, menu of restaurant and pic of shops are all right there. Really a neat sight with lots of info.

Check it out and be sure to post upon your return.

Enjoy and safe sailing.

its just a short walk from the pier to Paradise Point Tramway, do it on your own. We like to save it for the end of the day after we have done the beach,snorkeling and shopping.
