From October to March, Reef Surfari will depart at 1:30 from the dock at American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook on St Thomas and swing over to Cruz Bay to pick up our St John guests at 1:45. From April to September we will depart St Thomas at 2:00 and St John at 2:15. We will then head to two snorkel locations in the Virgin Islands National Park around St John to look for turtles, beautiful coral and a plethora of tropical fish. After snorkeling, we will pick up pizza, included in the cost of the trip, at Pizza PI in Christmas Cove of Great St. James or Ronnie's Pizza in Cruz Bay. The bar will be open with rum punch, painkillers, sodas and water for your refreshment. After pizza, we will cruise through the islands around St. Thomas and St. John while the captain tells stories about the islands, the mate tends the open bar and we watch the sunset. We will then return to St John between 6:30-7:30 and then head back to St Thomas between 7:00-8:00 depending on the time of sunset throughout the year. Snorkel gear is provided and is cleaned and sanitized after every use. Full face masks are available for rental and new mouth pieces are available for purchase in our retail stores. Smoking is not allowed on all of our group Reef Surfari trips.
