We are visiting St. John, to snorkel and be beach bums, drive around the island, drink rum in the sun, etc etc, the week of Sept 20 -27. Does any one have any ideas about what the weather will be like, other than the threat of a hurricane? Any ideas about insects and jellyfish? Have any of you stayed there that time of year? Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Cattail

We stayed at St. Thomas but went over to St. John for the day. It is a cute and charming island. Always watch out for the taxi drivers.....they will scare the daylights out of you on the curvy streets. I snorkeled on the waters around St. John and the current carried me so far from the boat, while I was watching the fish and not the boat, that I was afraid that I might not be able to swim back to the boat. I was totally exhausted because I was too absorbed in the snorkeling. So , beware of the strong currents if you snorkel. It was hurricane season while we were there and one day it rained so much that no planes could get in or out. People had to stay longer on their vacation...aaahhh. Other than that, we had fabulous weather.....enjoyed it a lot. The steel drum music will charm you I'm sure. Have a great time!!!!!
In case you are scratching your head, wondering what no-seeums are, that is the
cute little "Latin" name local Floridians have made up for the insects that bite you but you cannot "see um".......no seeum. hahahah.....first time I heard that word I did not live here either and thought it was sounded like an
official Latin term.
@[VT member 1286c9] how was your trip in Setpember? We are going this year (Sept 17-25) and i am a bit nervous if it will be a waste of money..Did it rain a lot or was it just a 'chance' of hurricane?
