View Full Version : ST. John excursion question-

03-14-2009, 10:29 PM
Hi Disboard folks,

I need help. We have sailed 3 times and all have been on the eastern. We will be sailing again on June 20, 2009. We liked St. John when we were in St. Thomas. I have forgotten the names of the excursion but I do remember everything that took place. I have looked at the ST. John Trunk Bay Beach and Snorkel Tour. When I read about this one, it talks about a taxi ride. When we went to St. John the last time, we got off the ship and walked to this large boat(catarmaran) and it took us for a long ride to ST. John to snorkel or they would put you in a dingy boat and take you to the shore. Is this the same tour that we have taken or is it different. I'm so confused!
I would appreciate any help or tell me about this specific excursion. I think we are getting close to our 95 days.

The catamaran excursion sounds like the Barefoot Sail and Snorkel.

THe St. Jon Trunk Bay Beach and Snorkel tour is as follows: you board a boat over to St. Johns, then they put you on the taxis and drive you to Trunk Bay - they stop a couple of times on the way over.

So here's THE tip - be the last one in a row to board the taxi so you are sitting on the left hand side so you can get pictures without other peoples heads in the way.

Thank you so much for your information. I'm trying to make everyone happy about the St. John excursion. The ds13, dd18, ddboyfriend19- want to snorkel. dh and I want to lay on the beach or get in the water-just chill out.
I hope the last one you mentioned can work for everyone. Thanks also for the FYI about where to sit for pictures. This is my daughters senior year and I feel so stress about filling out chances for our local scholarships to help pay for her college. She has already signed with a college to play fastpitch softball. This still doesn't cover the cost. For any other disboard member that is stressing over this senior year, I can feel for you. I didn't realize pictures, invitations, cap/gown, prom, softball games, scholarships applications, FAFSA. I just had eye surgery on both eyes and still working.
I'm ready for the Magic and lots of pixie dust.

Thanks so much,
