St. Croix Transportation

  • Driving - Roads on St. Crois

    The most important thing to remember is that in St. Croix, they drive on the LEFT, but with LEFT HAND DRIVE CARS. Every so often I have to yell LEFT at Bob and sometimes he thinks he should turn left, forgetting that he has to drive on the left. As the driver, you will always be next to the grass edge of the road. Some of the roads in Christiansted...

  • Budget Rental Car

    Except for our first visit by cruise ship, we have always rented a car. Although they drive on the left, the traffic is not that terrible and doesn't go that fast. We rent from Budget which has a very convenient Henry E. Rohlsen Airport location for pickup - there are other car rental companies there too. You drop the car off away from the airport....

  • Local Transportation

    For the patient person willing to wait, VITRAN (Virgin Islands Transportation) buses serve the island with numerous routes, starting service at 5:30 am on weekdays, ending at 9:00 pm, starting later on weekends. If you are not in a hurry, you can tour the island for only $1, going between our two towns and to shopping centers (transfer at La Reine...

  • Henry E. Rohlsen Airport

    We have flown in and out of St. Croix twice. The first time in February 2014 when we came in after dark in the evening. We landed pretty much on time. The guy at the bottom of the gangway with the wheelchairs wheeled me in to the door into the airport where someone had to let us in as the door was locked. Then he stayed at the door to let the...

  • Taxis on St. Croix

    We did not actually TAKE a taxi on St. Croix. The taxis on St. Croix are similar to the taxis on the other US Virgin Islands. Some of them are 15-seater vans, station wagons, or 25-seater safari vehicles, or sedans which seem to be seats put on the back of a big truck. Licensed taxi vehicles are labeled with: a taxi placard or dome light on the...

  • Cruise Ship Excursions

    Most of the time, cruise ship passengers will be taken on the excursions in large white vans. Although the ship will say that there is a long walk down the pier, actually, the vans come to the ship to pick people up.Our excursion, which I liked very much, circumnavigated the island and stopped at Columbus's Landing, at Cane Garden Bay and at...

  • Cruise Ship

    St. Croix is much less visited by cruise ship than St. Thomas. Our ship left St. Thomas at 1800 for the 42 mile trip to St Croix. I don't know what they did from then to the next morning as they certainly didn't need that much time. There is a long dock for cruise ships in Fredriksburg - it is about a ten minute walk from the ship to get into...

  • Henry E. Rohlsen Airport

    Most people come to St. Croix by air. There aren't many direct flights - we connected through MiamiThe original name of the airport was the Alexander Hamilton International Airport, but in 1996 it was renamed the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport after a St. Croix native who was one of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II. It is located six miles...

  • Arrival Via Cruise Ship

    My wife and I arrived in Dominica aboard the Celebrity Summmit. We both enjoy taking cruises as a vacation and this was a great one. We had a seven night cruise that sailed out of San Juan hitting the following ports: St. Croix, St. Thomas, Grenada, Dominica and St. Kitts. St. Croix was not a favorite of our out of all of the island we visited.

  • Driving a car on the left side of the...

    I thought driving on the left side would be very difficult but since the cars are the same as in the States (left-side driver) it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be (don't try to convince the locals that I scared to death by my abrupt lane changes). The hard part is that almost all the roads are unmarked and directions given by the locals were...

  • Cape Air - Great Views

    Cape Air flight is pretty cheap from San Juan Puerto Rico to St. Croix. (approx 1 hour flight time)It's a 10 seater plane (including the pilot). So sometime usually has to sit up in the cockpit next to the pilot. Since it's a smaller plane they fly pretty low altitude, and the views from the flight are amazing! Those with a weak stomach / fear of...

  • Horses in the roads

    When driving in St. Croix, it is not uncommon to see an unsupervised horse on the side of the road or even in the median. We even saw two horses who had stopped to chat with each other right in the middle of the road. All the cars just stopped until the horses were ready to proceed- contribute it to a slower pace.

  • Rent a car but be careful when driving...

    St Croix has a lot of beauty that can only be appreciated by renting a car and exploring.Be careful though, they drive on the same side of the road as the British, but use American style cars. Basically you drive with the driver hugging the curb. As far as I could tell there was nothing bigger than a 2 lane road on the island, so it's a bit easier...

  • Getting Around St. Croix: Taxi vs....

    For some reason, we didn't reserve a rental car ahead of time. When we got to St. Croix, there were none available. The big names (Avis, Hertz, etc.) were booked solid; a local company (Olympic) seemed the best bet but we were waiting on people to return cars, they said, but not with much hope...So we were stuck with taxis. Very pricey, because we...

    The cost of a Taxi is reasonable here, due to cheap gas prices maybe?? Let me give you the name and number of the reliable man that we always use:JosephMobile Phone: (340) 690-0853Expect to pay about $6 per person to get into town...

  • Floatplane

    This is a unique experience: you can fly one of these floatplanes from Old San Juan, Puerto Rico or from St. Thomas to the harbor here at Christiansted....I went to purchase a round-trip ticket to St. Thomas for the afternoon after seeing a sign advertising a $75 round trip. But they pulled the old "Bait & Switch" and attempted to charge...
