Cruise Ship Schedule Ferry Schedule Forum


In 1999 a small team of St. Thomas’ residents started with a visitors guide to St. Thomas. The goal was to provide USVI travelers with an online community where they could learn about the USVI, plan their trips and share their experiences on a well organized, attractive website. Today the goal remains the same and has grown to include a guide for St. Croix, St. John, Water Island and a special section for cruise ship visitors. has two sister sites; which focuses on relocating to and living in the US Virgin Islands and an on-line store where you can find books, maps & souvenirs from the USVI.
