St. John National Park Beach Tour
One of our most popular Ocean Explorer trips starts right at Secret Harbour.  This four-hour getaway starts with a tour along some of the most beautiful, pristine beaches of the St. John National Park and ends with a cold glass of rum punch for the trip back to Secret Harbour.  As you board, you will be served homemade muffins or cakes, fresh fruit, juices and water.  The first snorkel stop is Sam and Diane's favorite: Hawksnest Bay.  In addition to the many turtles you'll see here, this beach is also special because this is where their daughter chose to get married.  From there we take you to another favorite: Waterlemon Cay. The snorkeling here is the best the Virgin Islands have to offer - you will see amazing marine life, sea fans, turtles, rays and more. Throughout the day we will make sure you have plenty of food and beverage. We end the day by returning to Secret Harbour where we will pull up on the beach and you can take a short walk back to your room (or the Cruzan Beach Bar).

A note about our boat trips:  The US Coast Guard has had a long-standing policy that the use of drugs, including marijuana, is prohibited aboard US vessels at any time, by any person.  Recent changes in State Laws have not affected this policy, which is based on Federal Law.  The Captain is required to immediately notify the Coast Guard if drugs or paraphernalia are discovered on board.  Possession of a Medical Marijuana card does not allow marijuana possession or use on board, nor does it mitigate the Captain's responsibility to alert the Coast Guard of its presence.
