The best time to visit St. Thomas is between April and June. During this time you’ll have great weather with a minimal chance of rain. July through October is hurricane season, so book at your own risk during this time. The winter months of December-March are much busier, so prices spike for hotels and the beaches fill with tourists.
You can arrive in St. Thomas a variety of ways. Most tourists fly direct to St. Thomas but you can take a ferry from one of the other US or British Virgin Islands, or arrive by cruise ship. The airport in St. Thomas is on the southwest coast, about 15 minutes from Charlotte Amalie.

Captain AnneMarie and Osay were amazing. They made our day absolutely amazing from couple great snorkeling areas, a ship wreck to water island for a great lunch, snorkeling, paddle boarding etc. They both kept it fun and Osay was always there to help, assist or just give you great conversation with a smile on his face. Must experience in St Thomas. Would recommend doing a full day as well.

I wanted a real sailing experience as well as going to different beaches around the Virgin Islands and I got that and so much more , the vessel isn’t some coastal water princess it’s a sea queen , the food and service was more than I could ask for . Shana and her family were inviting and kind . Long story short I will stay in contact and seek them out anytime I want this awesome experience again!!
