When you are at St. Thomas, try going to Coki Beach. All you have to do is catch a cab and ask him to take you there. It is a smaller (yet amazing and beautiful) and offers many different things for very little money. It is one of our favorite places to go!
18 cruises and counting!!!!!!

In St. Maarten, the America's Cup Regatta is a fabulous excursion. I bet the boys would LOVE it!

In St. Thomas, there are some great snorkeling beaches. I haven't been to Sapphire Beach, but people say it is gorgeous and has great snorkeling. St. John is just a taxi (or local bus) and a ferry ride away. It is absolutely beautiful! We like snorkeling over at Cinnamon Bay there.

Have fun with your boys!

Definitely hop a ferry and go to St. John's Trunk Bay. It's wonderful for snorkeling. My kids 14 & 17 can't wait to get back there and snorkel.

yes Sapphire Beach on St. Thomas is a beautiful beach, but if you want the best snorkeling in St. Thomas you really need to head over to St. John Island its just a taxi, ferry, and taxi ride to the beach. go to www.vinow.com for beach and taxi info.
St.Maarten another great family excursion would be the Golden Eagle Catamaran Sail - its sailing, swiming, snorkeling, beach time and all around good fun.
San Juan - make the effort to take a tour of the El Yunque Rainforest it is an amazing adventure for the family
