Ok everyone I am heading over to St Croix for a 2 day mini trip...what must I see? Where to eat? I rented a jeep and staying at hotel right where Seabourne lands...but will drive anywhere. Our thoughts are Captain Morgan tour, Rain Forrest, and that place that has the earliest sunrise. But I need a lot more stops to fill up 2 days!!! All suggestions appreciated!

Well I did a 3 day trip in Jan '10. Although we did love the time there, Simply that was not enough time to do all we wanted and we really kind of regretted making such a short trip.

Part of our issue was I cut my foot severely the first night there and that really put a crimp in travelling around also.

Since then, we have watched every episode of Discover St Croix and have done some more thorough investigations on what to do the next time we visit. We were cold, and the flight was cheap so we just, 'went!'

I look forward to see what replies you receive!

I'm bringing a couple of girl friends down with me in Oct. I've lived on STX before and the one thing I do not want them to miss is Buck Island. Well worth the trip!!! Also, just check out this website for more things to do on STX. Have fun, stay friendly!!!

A bunch of places are closed for the month, but - Tavern 1844 is a good stop on your tour. Not sure which days of the week they're open.

I haven't done the Capt'n M. Tour - but the Cruzan tour is done with STX flair.

Will you be here on the weekend or mid-week? Sandy point just re-opened, but it's only open on weekends 'til 4pm.

Do you dive/snorkel? Another option (although Buck is awesome) would be to head out to the F'sted pier.

The place where the sun-rises is Point Udall by the way.

2 days! I dont think you need more stops you need to stop and relax. Do a few fun things like Norma's, and snorkel then go sit on a beach. Have fun it's a great place to spend some time, (even just 2 days).

Beer drinking pigs, tide pools, EAT at cane bay, carambola, rowdy joes. I'd strongly strongly recommend the jet ski tour out of rainbow beach with westend watersports around Hams bluff. Thats a must do in my book, always take visitors on it.

Jack and Isaacs, Tavern, etc also. So much to do...

1. A must if you love snorkeling is the pier, look close for the octopus, nudibranchs, tiny toby puffers, garden eels, squid and yellow headed jawfish.
2 I agree with Don on the Domino Club Pigs, and their AMAZING johnnycakes! I would give $100 for one RIGHT NOW! 😀
3. Eat@Cane (have a Lime in the Coconut and a burger stuffed with pulled pork...snorkel @ can bay after = HEAVEN)
4. Cruzian rum factory - free drink afterwards: Banana rum and Coke. Its mind blowing.
5. MUST do if you love wildlife is the night time bio-luminescence clear kayak tour. Sea thru I think its called. The older owner was kinda crotchety lol giving me the 3rd degree on moving to STX but it was an amazing tour!! The son is really a cool dude, its a once in a lifetime experience IMO.... unless you live on STX lol.

We already have a long list of people who want to visit and these will all be on the list when we have guests. I would say go to Buck but it burns most of a day, so do the pier instead, not the same but LOTS of wildlife! If you wanna see pics from my PMV I have lots or the pigs, pier and such: www.adrianpoe.smugmug.com

Stop anywhere at Cane Bay and watch the sun set. I like Off The Wall personally for this.

AandA2. My 9 year old son loves your pictures. Amazing that he knows were they were taken especially the ones at Chenay Bay. He has names for those fish. LOL.

That's awesome! Chenay bay had some great little critters, and the spotted eagle ray literally took my breath away, what beauty. I just sold my 200 gallon reef tank in preparation for our move. Its the first time in 12 years without a salt water tank and I miss my corals and fish, especially my more rare corals. It was such a pretty set up, I took fantastic care of it including having the equipment plumbed into a guess room lol. Pretty high tech but soon the Caribbean will fill the void. Still wondering why I have a graphic arts degree instead of a biology degree lol. Here is an older pic before the corals were grown in.

GO to the Monks Bath's in F'sted, they are very cool and have a great history. Also try to go to Mount Washington and do the labryinth or at least look around the ruins there - pretty cool. Also Ridge to Reef is a neat set up and gets you into the rainforest. I second Cruzan Rum - the plant is older but has more STX history to it.

Looks like you'll just have to spend some more time there or go back as with all the suggestions, you'll need a vacation from your vacation trip! Have lots of fun and enjoy everything you get to do!
