Hot on the heels of the last post, we bring you this first person account of what it feels like to travel from St. Thomas to St. John and see all the stunning natural wildlife beneath the surface:

A 45-minute boat ride past holiday homes of the rich and famous on St Thomas, then a quick flip in an open-top bus, brought us to Trunk Bay. It’s a 400-yard-long arc of soft white sand backed by palms and sea grapes, with a photogenic offshore island, Waterlemon Cay, framed in the view. Frigate birds and pelicans dive into the clear blue water.

All that would be reason enough to come, but the prime attraction is snorkelling. Just 30 yards out from the water’s edge lies a snorkel trail, marked with underwater plaques. As well as colourful coral we saw sea urchins, parrotfish, blue tang, stingrays and barracuda.

There are any number of good ways to spend your time when you visit St. Thomas and St. John, but a private rental boat has to be one of the most memorable on the list. Imagine spending an entire day on the waves with friends or family, on a boat you have to yourself, drinking in sights you have always wanted to see.

We can make it happen. Reach out to Sonic Charters for Trunk Bay tours, Waterlemon Cay trips, and dozens more rental boat options.
