you know... Shopping in St. Croix is a sight-seeing tour in
itself! Quaint shops are tucked in historic buildings made of cut
coral, molasses mortar, and Danish bricks brought as ballast on the
trading ships of the 1700 and 1800s! Interesting shaded courtyards
in these restored buildings house shopping arcades. Exploring is fun
- there is treasure at every turn! Click here for our Shopping Duty
Croix is all about Scuba and water sports and at each and every dive site you can see many
types of tropical fish and sea life; Angel fish, Jacks, Barracuda,
Dolphin, Flounder, Puffer fish, Snapper, Reef Sharks, various small
colorful Cucumbers. If it lives in the ocean, you can see it on a
dive with a St. Croix dive Shop! St. Croix’s professional
instructor/guides are experienced with all of our dive sites and
enjoy sharing their knowledge with our divers. Most shops dive seven
days a week both at pre-determined times and with custom dive times
and trips to meet your schedule. Come join us in our exploration of
the unique underwater world.
DID YOU KNOW... Spacious, pristine beauty is
a rare find, yet on St. Croix it is in abundance
everywhere you look! Sweeping vistas reveal tropical
waters glistening in every shade of blue imaginable,
and a few you never though possible! Rising hills
bordering the rain forest tower with giant mahogany
trees 150 years old. Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Red
Ginger, Ixora, Poinsettia, and Bird of Paradise
provide dramatic splashes of vibrant colors
throughout the year. Even the trees here flower --
the fragrant frangipani in red, pink, yellow or
white; the yellow or pink poui, striking at its
height of 80 feet in full bloom; and the majestic
Royal Poinciana, with its seed pods over two feet in
length and vibrant blossoms giving it the nickname
"the flame tree."
