Explore a Shore 1/2 Day

Has there ever been a part of St. John you were drawn to or dreamed about after seeing photos – the sheer rock cliffs of Ram Head, the Lovango bird sanctuary, the Tektite project, the Waterlemon starfish? If so, “Explore a Shore” is the trip for you! It is a great way to lose the crowds, get off the beaten track and have an up close and personal experience exploring some of St. John’s most secluded bays, beaches, reefs and landscapes. Arrange with your captain what “shore” of the island you’d like to explore and for how long.

Options may include:

  • South Shore – Reef Bay, Lameshur Bay, Salt Pond, Kiddle Bay, Booby Rock, Rams Head, Tektite, White Cliffs, etc…
  • North Shore – Carval Rock, Lovango Cay, Whistling Cay, Mary’s Point, Leinster Bay, Waterlemon Cay, Brown Bay, Newfound Bay, etc…
  • West Side – Dog Island, Little St. James, Christmas Cove, Henley Cay, Mingo Cay, Grass Cay, Thatch Cay, Hans Lollik, etc…
  • East End – Hurricane Hole, Haulover Bay, Flanigan Island, Leduck Island, Pelican Rock, Privateer Point, etc…
