Family Fun

St. Croix offers family fun by combining activities for kids of all ages with an endless Caribbean summer vibe. Take the family for a day trip out to Buck Island where you can snorkel, float and enjoy a beach barbecue. Or, try a new water sport such as stand up paddle-boarding, flyboarding or kayaking. Want to take a break from the water? Try an ATV off-road tour of the rainforest. Bowling is also a great activity for any age. If you want something entertaining for the evening, take the kids out to one see the hermit crab races and bet on a crab to win prizes. Another great evening option is to attend one of St. Croix's many Caribbean nights, because you can enjoy some local food and see the iconic mocko jumbies. The possibilities for family fun are endless, the tough part is deciding which activity to do first!
