Hello everyone and happy Monday! As you know, we are at the tail end of low season. Low season, or exclusive season as one of my New of St. John Island Tour guests refers to it, typically runs from late summer to early fall. It coincides with the more traditionally-active part of hurricane season, and it’s a time when many businesses on island close. It’s also a time when many of us who live here travel the world, visiting family and friends, and enjoy vacations of our own.
I recently returned after a nice break in Connecticut, and the island looks great! Many of the businesses that closed for low season as starting to reopen, and the island is so green! My Island Tour schedule is jam packed for the rest of the month, which is so exciting because I love showing you around the island! I had a family from Buffalo, New York yesterday for a land and sea tour and boy, did they get lucky! It was such a beautifully clear day, and the water was so calm! We visited a lot of great spots, and I took some pictures for all of you along the way. They visited the Lime Out – the floating taco bar – and then cruised along the North Shore back to Cruz Bay. How fun does that sound??! Check out a few pics I took…
If you’re planning a visit to the island, please consider taking a tour with us. It’s one thing to drive around and see the island yourself, it’s another to have someone tell you exactly what you are seeing at all times, as well as tidbits about island life, and the ins and outs of St. John. Each tour is tailored to our guest’s preferences, so every day is different which makes it even more fun for me! Whether you’re a first time visitor or a seasoned traveler, I promise you that you will see, do and learn something new. Want to know what other tour guests have said?

We can take up to four people per tour – tours are conducted in a new Jeep Wrangler – and we never combine groups. We bring along everything you need for a day at the beach should you choose to beach it during part of your tour, and we bring along plenty of water because its important to stay hydrated down here.
Our full day tours are five hours long and cost $425 per tour. (During these tours, we build in time to stop for lunch, usually in the Coral Bay area.) We offer half day tours too. Our three-hour tour costs $300 per tour. And what’s becoming very popular is our land and sea tour. During this six hour tour, you will spend three hours exploring the island on land with me and then you will spend three hours enjoying life on the water with Flyaway Charters. You can even stop at Lime Out for lunch! The cost of the land and sea tour is $600. Fuel for the boat is additional and typically runs about $50.
Have a great day everyone, and happy St. John vacation planning!
