Best Activities and Boat Companies


We're headed to St. Thomas in mid-July. It'll be my husband, my sister and her boyfriend and my parents for a total of 6 of us. 

We'll be staying at the Marriott, but don't want to spend all day every day at the hotel. My husband and I plan to do some scuba diving, but would also like to take a few excursions with the family. 

I'd love to hear about some moderately easy hikes around the area...any good boat charters (private or otherwise)...and any other 'must-sees' on St. Thomas or in St. John. 

Also...favorite beaches and restaurants?

Thanks all!

There are many small hikes, and most involve some hills, but they end in amazing look out points - check this site there is alot of good information there.   St. John is a must see for snorkeling Trunk Bay is really a nice place and a nice little walk to get there.  There are many different locations - some that you may not see anyone else.   Rent a car so you can see the hole island.   Magens Bay Beach is a beautiful beach but you need to check when the cruise ships are in and avoid that time.  Early morning is truly beautiful - we use to go there in the morning before others showed up and would swim and see sea turtles swim with us. A little more off the beaten path is the The Baths on the BVI, check it out on the internet, if interested they have boat excursions there I believe. Hope that helps.
