One of the great things about offering rental boats on St. John is that we get to indulge a wide variety of tastes. Some people just want to relax and gaze at the waves, while others want to hop off at every beach and enjoy the wildlife.
This checklist covers both philosophies, and offers a number of outstanding tips for visitors to the Virgin Islands looking for something fun to do on St. John.
It covers such mainstays as the national park, Trunk Bay and scenic Chocolate Hole. But our favorite is this squib on beautiful Maho Bay:
After a day of underwater activity, try a different beach activity—nothing. Maho Bay is a tranquil beach with usually calm waters and a lack of crowds. There is plenty of shade and a gradual deepening of water, making it a great place to spend time with the little ones or to enjoy a book and beer from your cooler. The slip of land on Maho Bay isn’t the widest beach, so plan to visit at low tide or you could be chasing your flip-flops as they float away with the surf.
You can walk or drive, but the best way to enjoy Maho Bay is with a rental boat. Contact the expert sea captains of Sonic Charters to rent a boat in St. John today – and check every hot spot off your own list!
