Our Port

The Ann E. Abramson Pier is named in honor of the Virgin Islands Public Works Commissioner who was responsible for much of the rejuvenation of the Frederiksted area. This is the pier where most of the large cruise ships dock, as well as military ships, submarines, and other naval vessels. From time to time, tall-ships especially from Denmark, can be seen here.

The dock itself has been a favorite diving place especially for viewing bright coral, sponges, and a multitude of fish life. A night dive should reveal the sea-horses unique to this pier. Visitors arriving at the pier often walk through the small town of Frederiksted and walk to the nearby beaches and beach clubs.


All large cruise ships berth at the island’s only major pier, officially named after a former Public Works Commissioner, Ann E. Abramson. The pier is 1,526 feet long, allowing two cruise ships to tie up at the same time. A kiosk filled with tourism information sits at its head. Public restrooms are nearby. While the pier is the gateway to shopping in Frederiksted, taxis and tour buses take visitors to Christiansted for shopping, sightseeing, and on round-the-island tours. There is no admission charge.

Stroll and visit the shops, eating establishments and historic areas of the two major towns, Frederiksted and Christiansted. Enjoy award winning coffee, expresso  and food with fresh, local island ingredients. Try Polly's At The Pier Internet Café.  Just 6 doors down from the cruise ship pier on the waterfront.

Take a tour or rent a car from Budget St. Croix  to see the beaches, the rain forest and the inland historic sites like the St. George Botanical Gardens or the Whim Plantation. Tour a real rum factory, complete with product sampling. Go snorkeling the reefs off Frederiksted or Cane Bay or take a tour of the world famous Buck Island under water national park.


Experience the thrill of riding an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) on the mountain tops of St. Croix, with breath taking views of the surrounding ocean, historic plantation ruins, and the sub-tropical Rain Forest. Or cruise scenic byways on a bicycle to explore at your leisure. You can do either, or both, with Gecko’s Island Adventures, located just one block south of the Cruise ship pier.
