Sunsets on St. John are spectacular. In winter months, the skies at sunset glow with the most spectacular hues, blooming with pinks, reds and oranges. In summer months, the whole sky can be lit up in orange.
The fabulous St. John sunsets are even more beautiful from the water. Imagine sitting on the boat, sipping a cold drink and seeing the sun drop into the water or behind the rock. If you get really lucky, you might even see the famous green flash. The green flash are optical phenomena that appear on the horizon, usually the ocean, just after the Sun rises or sets. It is a flash of green light that lasts for about a second or two. Sometimes (rarely) the green flash can resemble a green ray shooting up from the sunset (or sunrise) point. Green flashes occur because the atmosphere can cause the light from the sun to separate out into different colors.
Go on a sunset cruise from Cruz Bay, St. John
Our sunset cruise typically leaves around 4:45 PM and returns to Cruz Bay after sunset (little after 7 in summer). We cruise along the North Shore beaches.
The price is 390$ for the whole boat up to 6 people (including fuel). We have a couples special which is 350$ if it is only 2 of you.
It is in USVI waters only (since customs offices closes at 5pm). We provide water and ice. You can bring your own food and drink or grab something from North Shore Deli (which is right across from where we start the trip) - call to pre-order and everything will be waiting for you. During season we can also stop at Pizza Pi the Pizza boat, always a great hit with the kids (Pizza Pi is usually open from November to end July)
