Before exploring the Frederiksted Pier, I'd go to aquariums and think "oh, this is cool, but it's all concentrated here, the sea can't possibly be that amazing". After just snorkeling the pier (let alone diving), I'm now jaded. Spectacular colors, amazing schools of fish, sea turtles, the occasional octopus, even an awesome gnarly looking barracuda who hangs out in the... More

Fredrikested is very, very relaxed when no cruise ship has landed. With the ships the town opens up and a market stands, shops open, music playing and cafes/restaurants are open. It's different! The museum at the pier gives you a very good lesson of this island's slave history.

Great pier to watch cruise ships come in or out, great shops to visit, wonderful scuba diving and snorkling opportunities! See fish, barracuda, turtle, etc while swimmi g around the pier. And 2-3 dive shops just yards away.

Several people recommended jumping off the pier, and snorkeling around the new and old pier pilings. Lots of sea creatures, including a barracuda or two. Access to pier for snorkeling is prohibited when a cruise ship is in port. At other times, watch out for the hot-dog motorboat drivers who cut a little too close to the swimmers. We heard... More

It's hard to believe that there could be so much sea life, and such a variety of it, hanging out and on the Frederiksted Pier. This is my favorite dive on St Croix, and for that matter, my favorite shore dive in the Caribbean. While the entry and exit can be a bit of a challenge, once you are in,... More

Very quiet town when ship is not in port! You have to snorkel or dive the pier! Enter the small beach on the left side of the pier and snorkel the rim of the pier. The concrete pillars are full of coral which attracts schools of fish! We saw an octopus, puffer fish, sea turtle and even and eel. Make... More

Frederiksted is the smaller of the two towns on St. Croix. When we were there, many of the businesses were closed. The pier is a nice walk, and we even did a scuba dive at the pier, which was very nice. So it's a nice visit, but nothing spectacular.

This was absolutely stunning. When you get here after dark, you can see lots of turtles and fish. We could not believe it...

I went here on New Year's Eve with a friend of a scuba diving off the pier. I walk to the whole length of the pier there was a sailboat moored there. I also went to the park next to it, Fort Frederick was closed so I couldn't go into that. It was interesting it was quiet, nothing really exciting... More
