Reasons You Should Spend Your Holidays in the USVI
Are you a little tired of your regular holiday routine? If this year’s visions of sugarplum fairies aren’t dancing in your head and instead you’re dreaming of wriggling your toes in soft, white sand of a warm tropical island, then maybe it’s time to change up your holiday plans! Below are all of the reasons you should spend your holidays in the Virgin Islands this year.
Ice Storms, Blizzards and Sleet – Oh My!
The Leeward Islands of the Caribbean, including St. Thomas and St. John in the USVI, are known for their spectacular beaches, clear blue waters, and stunning coral reefs. With average December temperatures in the mid 80’s, you’ll return to work after the holidays with a glowing tan and stories of lounging on a catamaran while watching the sunset instead of eating leftover fruitcakes, re-gifting sweaters, and fighting icy roads.
A Gift for Everyone on your List.
Cruz Bay Watersports offers year-round excursion options for visitors to the USVI and we have plenty of options to suit everyone’s interests. Does your family have animal lovers? Send them on a Turtle Tour to snorkel with Green and Hawksbill sea turtles and other exciting sea life. Adventure seekers? Head out on the Sea Quest dive boat for an afternoon of scuba diving. With 25 plus dive sites to choose from including the Virgin Islands National Park, your trip will be far from ordinary. Romantic getaway? Schedule a Sunset Sail aboard one of our catamarans. Sip champagne and enjoy hors d’oeuvres as the sun slips below the horizon. Explorers? Rent a boat and cruise around the coves and bays of the islands on your own schedule. Anchor at a secluded beach and picnic and swim the day away!
Ring in the New Year!
Are you looking for a one-of-a-kind way to celebrate the New Year? Start your 2017 off in style and luxury with a vacation to the US Virgin Islands. Set sail aboard the Lady Lyndsey for a New Year’s Eve Party Cruise complete with fireworks. Depart from the Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas and enjoy a night under the glittering stars. Looking for something a bit more on the wild side? Head to Foxy’s at Jost Van Dyke, their New Year’s Eve party lasts 48 straight hours and features live reggae music, food and drinks. We do not offer trips on our boats to Jost Van Dyke but Cruz Bay Watersports can assist with booking public or private trips to the party.
Many hotels in St. Thomas and St. John offer great deals on holiday packages. Websites like Apple Vacations, Orbitz and CheapCaribbean offer discounted and all-inclusive vacation packages for families and couples that can be custom built for adventure seekers, romantic getaways, or families on the go.
Paradise is just a Hop Skip and a Jump Away
St. Thomas and St. John are an easy trip from the mainland USA. With direct flights from Boston, New York, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Chicago, Dulles, Newark, Charlotte, and Philadelphia, the US Virgin Islands are more accessible than ever. With a little advance planning flights can be affordable, and gift-wrapping tickets is a total breeze.
Of course, anytime is a wonderful time to visit the Virgin Islands, but this year why not make the holiday season a bit more magical with a trip of a lifetime? Come join us, ditch those winter boots and dig your toes into the sand as we help you plan a memorable holiday!
