Default skyride in St. Thomas

Has anyone done the skyride in St. Thomas? How long should you a lot for this? Would we have time to do an excursion AND the skyride? Thanks

It takes about 10 minutes each way on the skyride ... you can stay up top as long as you like so depending on what time your excursion is I do not see it as being a problem to do both ...

Here is a view of the skyride taken from our balcony on the Victory last October ... www.flickr.com/photos/thecruisingwalls/80608180/

It was within walking distance of the port ....

you can actually walk to the Paradise Point Tramway from the pier. Its 10 minutes walk tops, The ride up the mountain takes maybe 10-15 minutes, you can spend as much or as little time at the summit as you wish. I would buget at least an hour of time.

We did this on our first cruise. It was awesome! The cost is $16 pp, and dont forget to try a "bushwacker" at the bar. They're strong, but really good! Make sure to have a camera because the view (going up and on top) is simply spectacular! There is a few shops on top for a little shopping too. We stayed up there for about an hour or so, and then took a tour of the island.
