Red Hook

Overall Rating

General Impression
 
4.5

Red Hook is the proverbial anchor of the East End of St. Thomas. The little hub packs in a lot! There is: a marina; fishing and boating excursions; ferries; island-style shops; restaurants and bars; offices; banks and more! Take a stroll along the marina to admire the boats or to peek at what anglers have caught and brought to shore. Stop at ‘A’ dock and snap a photo with the replica 1073lb blue marlin. The large fish earned angler Annette Dallimore a Women’s IGFA ‘All-tackle’ world-record for a blue marlin catch! Stroll, shop, have a drink or dine.

Hiking Tips

  • Tell someone where you are going and when you will return. Avoid hiking or swimming alone.
  • Allow for sufficient time to explore, swim and rest.
  • Remain on park trails – some trails cross private property, do not trespass into private property.
  • Wear cool clothing, comfortable walking shoes. Sandals are not recommended. Sneakers are your best option.
  • Protect yourself against the sun and insects.
  • Bring water and snacks.
  • Do not leave items or garbage on the trails. Make sure you leave with all the items you brought with you.
  • Do not remove anything from the park property; this includes but is not limited to shells, rocks, artifacts, flowers, plants and animals.
  • Pace yourself to prevent fatigue. Watch footing on wet rocks and trails made rough and slippery at times by heavy rainfall.
  • Do not eat unknown fruits, nuts or berries. Some plants and fruits are poisonous and can cause allergic reactions. Do not touch unfamiliar plants. Avoid handling or picking plant life that may harbor stinging insects, cause rashes, scratches or skin punctures. Many plants have thorns beware, look but don’t touch. Some ground covering shrubs cause severe itching – it is in your best interest to stay on trails.
  • Do not climb on fragile historic structures. Leave artifacts in place.
  • Hike early and return early.
