St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands


St. Croix, the largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, offers a tranquil tropical destination for vacationers, honeymooner, scuba divers and more. Rich in cultural diversity, St. Croix has a past filled with a fascinating history.

Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, the Knights of Malta, Denmark and the United States all played a role in St Croix's past and brought their influence to the native Arawak and Carib peoples. Experience the unique culture of St. Croix through its arts, crafts, music and more during a variety of festivals and cultural events throughout the year.
 
But these are only a few of the things you can enjoy on the island.  St. Croix provides gorgeous beaches, world-class recreational activities, wonderful scuba diving and snorkeling, fine dining, casino, and golf.  Although only 22.7 miles long and 8 miles at its widest point, the landscape of St. Croix is surprisingly diverse. Visiting just the two main towns of St. Croix will give you a glimpse of the island’s incredible history—from regal 18th and 19th-century homes in Christiansted to a tropical rain forest in Frederiksted.

The beauty and diversity of the U.S. Virgin Islands extends far beyond the white sands of the shore. St. Croix offers amazing beauty and variety below sea level as well. Nowhere else in the Caribbean can you dive a wreck, wall, pier and reef all in one day! Whether you are newly certified or an advanced diver, diving in the U.S. Virgin Islands is easy, accessible and offers an array of experiences for everyone. And because the U.S. Virgin Islands is a territory of the United States, you'll enjoy the added safety of diving within U.S. waters. This means that all dive boats are inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard and captains are USCG certified.

Sea life is abundant in the U.S. Virgin Islands. More than 500 species of fish, 40 types of coral and hundreds of invertebrates inhabit the water. Vibrant blue tang, silvery horse-eye jacks, queen triggerfish, spiny Caribbean lobster, spotted eagle rays, creole wrasses, and cleaner gobies are just a sampling of the marine life populating the underwater terrain. As sun sets, octopus, seahorses and moray eels make their appearance. Hawksbill, green, and leatherback turtles, call the USVI home and can be seen on many a dive. Lucky vacationers may even witness turtles hatching on one of the many turtle nesting grounds.
