Does anyone know if there are places that you can rent a slip or a storage area for kayaks (on the water) on St. Croix? We want to bring two when we move but won't be bringing our SUV to transport to them to the water and won't be living right on the water.

Lol do you know where you'll be living? Also can't you strap a kayack to a car roof? I've seen a fridge in STT and a large dingy strapped to tiny Yaris size cars before.... alsways wondered if that fridge made it up north side.

Theft is a huge issue here. If you store it anywhere, make sure its secure.

Green Cay/Tamarind Reef is a good place to launch kayaks. I just strapped mine to my roof.

A handful of pool noodles and some tie-downs will work on just about any car! Not sure if you could get two kayaks on there at a time, but maybe you could make two trips if it's not far and you have someone to watch the first kayak.

Also, I once put my Dagger Axiom entirely inside my fiance's Honda Accord with the trunk closed (when I had just sold my old car and bought a new one but didn't have the rack on yet). I'm guessing you have sea kayaks, though, which are probably more than 8 feet long. 🙂

If you'll be living anywhere on the east end, you might consider the St. Croix Yacht Club. I know they've got storage areas for SUP's and I belive a kayak storage area as well.
It's a great property with many amenities and the annual membership fees are reasonable for part-time residents, and more than reasonable for full-time residents
