St. Croix Transportation

  • 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...

  • 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 Fredricksburg - it is about a ten minute walk from the ship to get into...

  • 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...

  • 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...
