We're planning a day trip to St John from St Thomas and want to go to the National Park to do some hiking.  We are not able to get a rental car.  What options are there to get to/from the National Park without a car?  (We're arriving and departing from Cruz Bay.)

@femolin From the ferry dock in Cruz Bay you have 2 hiking trails that are easily accessible without a car. Both trailheads are about a 5-10min walk from the ferry dock. 1. Caneel Hill Trail 2. Lind Point Trail

Before embarking on your day trip, make sure to check the current transportation options and schedules, as they may be subject to change. Additionally, consider the timing of your return to Cruz Bay to ensure that you can catch transportation back to the ferry terminal or your accommodation.

St. John's National Park without a car? No sweat! Taxis are comfy but can add up. Try sharing a ride to save some bucks! Public bus (Vitran) is budget-friendly, but island time applies. Water taxi to Nany Cay is scenic, then grab a taxi or hitch a ride closer to your trails. Pick trails near Cruz Bay like Trunk Bay and sunscreen is a must - the Caribbean sun is stronger than a safari desert dubai 😀
