Whether you come to St Thomas by cruise ship or airplane, one of the “must do” things on your vacation is to rent a boat and explore the Virgin Islands on St Thomas Boat Rentals!
St Thomas Power Boat Rentals
To see as much as possible on one day, it is better to rent a power in St Thomas, rather than a sailboat, simply for the fact that you can go faster and see more islands. One of the great things about the U.S. Virgin Islands & British Virgin Islands is that there are so many islands close by. Even the British Virgin Islands are only 20-30 minutes away from St John.
What to do When You Rent a Boat on St Thomas
This really depends on what you want to do! The most popular itinerary for the day is to head out to a few snorkeling spots in the morning, such as Waterlemon Cay by St John, or The Indians by Norman Island, or the Caves, which are actually in the side of Norman Island. After snorkeling, most people like to find a nice restaurant on one of the fabulous Virgin Island beaches. Some of the favorites are The Willy T, Pirates Bight, Foxy’s, Sydney’s, or Pusser’s Rum Restaurant on Marina Cay.
After that, you’ve probably worked up a nice thirst, and wouldn’t mind a few adult beverages…say, a Painkiller or two (three?). Probably the most popular island in the BVIs is Jost Van Dyke, the party island, and home to The Soggy Dollar Bar, Ivan’s Stress Free Bar, One Love, and countless more. Beach bar crawling here is an art form. It’s family friendly, too, as the bar owners do a good job of keeping everything PG rated – at least during the day! White Bay on Jost Van Dyke is not just home to the most beach bars, it is also one of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in the world. The color of the water and the sugar white sand beaches combine to make a truly surreal experience.
