Day trip from Vieques to another island

Has anybody taken a day trip in which you've flown from Vieques to another island (besides Puerto Rico) and back on the same day? Was it worth your time or was it a hassle? I'm going to be staying on Vieques for an extended period and would like to visit another island without staying the night.

Saint Croix and Saint Thomas are your options from here. I have been to both. Was it worth my time?...yes...was it worth the money?...for me, yes. Was it a hassle? My experiences were relatively easy. If you bring down a pound of BBQ Brisket we could talk.

By the way, this Sunday on Brewers Beach , Saint Thomas, The 27th Annual Texas Chili Society cook-off happens. The winner gets to go to Terlingua, Texas for the National Chili Competition. All proceeds go to charity.

IMO, It would be worth it to spend a little time on Culebra. You will fall in love with it. You can charter Flemenco or take VAL through Cieba to get there. For more info you can check out the post I just made to the Culebra vs Vieques thread.

We often used to go to St Croix for the day when the fares were cheaper. I recommend you research a good day to go, when there might be a ruins ramble or a starving artists day at Whim.

take an early flight and rent a car. You can explore around Fredricksted before anything even opens and get into C'sted late morning for shopping or lunch. It all depends on your interests .

Seabornes schedule as of today won't give you much time there as the return is at 2:30 pm. Vieques airlink does not publish a schedule but they traditionally have a flight around 6:30 am and return around 3:30 which is still a short day.

We prefer to spend the night and see more.
