    We love to take a full-day sail to Buck Island. Turtle Beach is gorgeous, and the coral grottos along the snorkeling trail are breathtaking. Full-day sails usually include a beach BBQ.

    Unbelievable and a MUST to St. Croix....Llewellyn and Big Beard's adventure do day trips and the snorkeling is the best in the world....The fish you see in aquariums in the States you will see them the size of frying pans over here....last time my children saw barracudas, sting rays, nerf sharks, turtles, etc.

    Great half- or full-day snorkeling trip. Take a guided snorkeling tour of the underwater trail and see for yourself coral, angel fish, and lots of curstaceans. A visit to beautiful Turtle Beach on Buck Island's west end is included in your trip.

    A must see when traveling to STX. Mile Mark is the best to get there.
