Default Paradise Point in St. Thomas

Thinking about checking out the skyride to Paradise Point in St. Thomas and trying one of those Bailey's Bushwackers.

Has anyone done this and is the view as great as they say?

We dock from 8a-6p and thought maybe check out the beaches early, then do the skyride for a later lunch. Then back to ship for dinner.

Any thoughts on this stop?

Thanks for your help.

Try this-- go to their website www.paradisepointtramway.com
There is some useful info. there as well as printable coupons, one is good for $ 2.00 off the Bushwacker. It does afford a good view of the harbor and ships below and beyond.

the tram is a short walk from the cruise ship pier - maybe 5 minutes - the tram ride up the mountain takes about 10 minutes. the view of the harbor is beautiful. You can do it in as little as an hour or you can spend the whole day there wandering around, taking in the scenery, have a drink and a bite to eat.

Hi paddletoe53 & Ron!

Thanks for the info. We'll be going to St. Thomas for the first time on our next cruise and this looks like a lot of fun. Have you done it?

Over the years we have been to St. Thomas many times. Have been to Paradise point several times. It's not the type place I would want to spend the day but it's good for a couple hours. The scenery is great and there are some interesting little shops. The bushwhackers are good. Be sure tp print out those coupons and take with you. I'm sure you will enjoy St. Thomas .
