A trip to the neighboring island of St. Thomas makes an excellent day-long excursion from Christiansted, St. Croix.  Quick and enjoyable ferry service is available from St. Croix  to St. Thomas for both passengers and cars.  Ferry schedules and fares are available by clicking here.  And for those who do not want to travel by boat, Cape Air's shuttle airplane services can take them to St. Thomas from St. Croix as well or you can hop a seaplane on Seaborne Airlines from Christiansted Harbor directly to Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas.

Once on St. Thomas visitors can easily hop into a taxi at the terminal to take them into Charlotte Amalie, the island's largest town featuring great shopping and dining.  The taxis can also take you on a tour of the island.  A half-day tour, about 4 hours, cost $60 and a full-day tour, about 7 hours, costs $75.  Those who may not want to go on a tour can also spend a day at the beach.  If you choose to travel to the beach by taxi it is a smart idea to also arrange with the taxi driver a time to be picked up.
