About St. Thomas

A popular spot in the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Thomas is the perfect island destination for a Caribbean vacation. The capital city, Charlotte Amalie, also known as downtown, is full of different shops and restaurants. It is also the port for cruise ships that stop in Saint Thomas.

The best time to visit St. Thomas is between April and June. During this time you’ll have great weather with a minimal chance of rain. July through October is hurricane season, so book at your own risk during this time. The winter months of December-March are much busier, so prices spike for hotels and the beaches fill with tourists.

You can arrive in St. Thomas a variety of ways. Most tourists fly direct to St. Thomas but you can take a ferry from one of the other US or British Virgin Islands, or arrive by cruise ship. The airport in St. Thomas is on the southwest coast, about 15 minutes from Charlotte Amalie. It’s easy to get around the small island by rental car, but they do drive on the left side which could be difficult for many visitors. A taxi is a good option if you’d rather not deal with driving and parking.

    10 starts!! (this is going to be a long one but an informative one) Wow is all you will say after you’v booked with the beat charter company on USVI! I don’t ever want to try any other company because theres no competition. This was the best experience ever! I cant wait to book again. Everyone and everything was nothing but amazing! I was speechless. First of all I took a beautiful sailing yacht called C'est La Vie with Seas the Day Charters(Scott and Hope). It was perfect for my birthday which hosted a party of 4. Very affordable, clean, spacious and just more than what I could’ve imagine. Our mate Alyssa and captain Pogan were absolutely wonderful! I don’t recall a time not seeing either one of them smiling. They were friendly and definitely helpful my party and I didn’t have to lift a finger. Captain Pogan was a smooth driver and knows his way around the waves. I booked the half day charter 9am-1pm and we didn’t want to leave! Captain Pogan took us to St. John from St. Thomas to a beautiful beach called Honeymoon beach (you also have the option of Trunk bay) where Alyssa carried us in a power boat to shore. We spent some time there and then she came back to get us. I felt very special on my day thank you so much! My booking included snacks like chips, peanuts, granola bars, cheeze its, unlimited rum punch, bottled water and sodas provided by the charter company. They also offer options for you to upgrade your charter by purchasing food, fruit, cakes, bottles of wine,champagne and anything else you may like to include on your day. I took advantage of this option by ordering a sandwich and fruit platers for my party. The young lady Hope who I’ve had conversations with about planning my charter experience is a real pleasure. Hope is super nice and sweet. I didn’t have any issues when it came to communicating with her via email or by phone. Whatever you want or need she will make it happen for you. I can’t say thank you enough!

    36' Twin Vee Ocean Cat for 12 People in Charlotte Amalie - Available for Half Day Charter!

    We had the best time! Scott and his queen AKA the co-captain, were such a great time. They made us feel comfortable immediately and made sure we enjoyed every minute we had out on the water. The boat was clean and spacious and is perfect for a group celebration. I look forward to the next visit! I will definitely want to book again.
