About St. Thomas
As part of the famous string of islands that make up the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Thomas is famous for its colorful history as much as it is for its spectacular beaches. The temperate climate and sparkling azure waters surrounding the island make it a popular vacation destination for travelers from all over the world, but especially for boaters.
Boating in St. Thomas
Because of its calm, clear water, St. Thomas is ideal for all manner of watersports and activities. Boats of all shapes and sizes play in the waves — under power or sail. Boaters often sail their own craft down to the island, but chartering is another popular option. While out on the water, many boaters will enjoy sport fishing, kayaking or paddle boarding, snorkeling or scuba diving, windsurfing or wakeboarding, or even daring more adventurous activities like jet skiing, trying out a water-propelled jet pack, or participating in a guided animal encounter with turtles, sea lions, or sharks.
Boaters with a mind for history will enjoy tours on land and by sea that detail the fascinating history of St. Thomas’s past — in particular its arguably most famous involvement with the “Golden Age of Piracy” that took place during the 17th-19th centuries. St. Thomas is also ideally positioned as a jumping-off point for further exploration of the other isles of the U.S. Virgin Islands, as it is the gateway island to the rest of the territories. Whether your interests involve history, relaxation, or adventure, you will likely find just what you are looking for on this unique island paradise.
