New Blog Post; More Eco Love on St. Thomas - St. Thomas has continued to expand its catalog of beautiful attractions. The latest entry is this one, Phantasea Tropical Botanical Garden, which began as a private garden collection, and is now open to the public.

Closing Thoughts on the St. Thomas Boat Events - The regatta has come and gone, bringing with it some of the best sailors in the world, as well as a few thousand diehard fans. But who won? A tie-breaker decided the champion in the highly-competitive one-design Melges 32 class. In the end, it was Puerto Rico s Sergio Sagramoso s Lazy Dog that triumphed over fellow islander Luis Juarbe s SOCA by earning the most first-place finishes. It was a great weekend for boating all around, and a nice reminder that there is more than one way to cruise the seas around St. Thomas. Many of the boats competing were basically thoroughbreds, built for speed and sculpted like airfoils. It’s beautiful technology, but it’s not for everyone. Our fleet of St. Thomas rental boats are closer to Clydesdales, decked out for luxury, power, pomp and circumstance.

St. John Boat Rental Tips - A perfect St. John boat rental should come without sacrifices. You want the right crew on the right boat at the right price, period. Here are a few ways you can get everything you desire in a hurry: 1. Look for Experience All of us in St. John and the surrounding islands live on or near the water, and most people have at least a passing familiarity with the art of sailing. But real experience is an invaluable thing; it can mean the difference between a smooth ride and a choppy one, and it can help ensure you make it to every destination in a day. Great boat captains know the area. They understand their boats, and offer outstanding advice and guidance no matter what you want to do – snorkeling, diving, even just lounging. So read those bios and stick with the pros. 2. Rental Boats Matter Not every boat in St. John is created equal. Although you see many of the same sizes when you comparison shop, drill down into the details and some important differences emerge. The best rental boats

New Blog Post; See St. Thomas, No Passport Required - One of the big upsides to visiting St. Thomas for your Caribbean fix is that it’s a U.S. territory, meaning you’ll ever need a passport. Often this information gets lost in the shuffle stateside, which is why the St. Thomas tourism commissioner is now trying to spread the word: “I’m still amazed at how many times I hear people say they don’t have passport,” said Nicholson-Doty. “For people who want to get away and ha... http://ow.ly/2VVRSH
