Eastern Caribbean Excursions...What to do?

My family of three will be sailing the Fanatsy Eastern Caribbean on May 5. We have stops in St. Maarten and St. Thomas/St. John, but no idea what to do!?!

We would like to find something non-beach for those two ports. Any suggestions? Book an excursion or go out on our own?

All advice welcome!

When we were in St. Thomas, we did the Sea Trek Helmet Dive At Coral World Ocean Park. We booked it through Disney. When you arrive, you are given water shoes (crocs) and special gloves. You enter the water by going down a ladder, and before your head is submerged, the workers place a helmet connected to a tube that provides you oxygen. At first, the helmet feels extremely heavy (if I remember correctly, they said it weighed about 60-70 pounds out of water). It was almost 3/4 of my brother's weight!! Once you're underwater, it doesn't feel nearly as heavy. The actual excursion part involves holding on to a chain connected to the ocean floor. The group leader will find different things and place them on your hand for you to see. Afterwards, we had a little more time before our driver came back, so we explored the rest of the park. This excursion is kind of expensive, but it's a really cool experience!

Hope that helps!

We have scheduled for St Maarten on our June Fantasy sailing. We have read many great reviews for them.
