St Thomas to St Croix Day Trip

The schedule from St Thomas to St Croix has been specifically designed to make day trips and short weekend or midweek breaks an easy possibility. If you take the Friday morning 8.00 AM service from Charlotte Amalie to Christiansted, you'll arrive in St Croix around 10.00 AM. The boat departs back from St Croix to St Thomas again at 4.00 PM, giving you around 6 hours to enjoy the island.

Weekend on St Croix

If you have a little more time to spare, we highly reccommend spending the weekend on St Croix. Take the Friday crossing over, and go back from St Croix to St Thomas on the Sunday afternoon. That way, you can really explore the island's diversity and tick off a few of the best things to do on St Croix. Or simply take the time just to relax and unwind on one of the best hotels on St Croix, near the beach, sipping your favourite cool beverage!

Alternatively, with the newly added Wednesday service, you can opt for a half-week trip or longer.
