St Thomas Shore Excursion: Shopping, Sightseeing and Beach Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    When your cruise ship docks, disembark and meet your enthusiastic tour guide at the entrance to the port.

    Follow your guide into the heart of downtown Charlotte Amalie, a bustling area packed with duty-free shops, cafés, galleries and restaurants. Amble down Main Street and the waterfront to find unique local goods and great deals on jewelry, clothing and electronics. How long you spend filling your shopping bags and emptying your purse will vary according to your tour start time. Head out on your safari taxi for some St Thomas sightseeing. Be ready to sing along to lively music as you make your way to your first destination.

    The safari taxi will ferry you to the 1,547-foot (471-meter) summit of Mountain Top, the highest point on the island. Make several stops at scenic viewpoints on the way up, listening to engaging commentary about the history and culture of St Thomas on the way. Be sure to bring your camera for stunning photos of the lush green vegetation and turquoise water splayed out below. From this vantage point, you'll see some of the neighboring islands, Blackbeard's Castle and the famous Magens Bay.

    Upgrade your tour to include time at one of the island's legendary beaches. Choose Magens Bay, Coki Point Beach or Sapphire Beach, where you can swim, snorkel, scuba dive or simply relax in the powdery sand. 

    Worry-free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to Port of St Thomas for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

    We chose the 10am sightseeing and shopping option (so we opted for no beach), and that should have allowed us two hours of time to explore the town. Instead, we were picked up from the ship at 10, dropped into Charlotte Amalie town and then...More

    I am not sure. We arrived in St Thomas by Cruise Ship and were picked up at the Dock. Call or email them to find out.
