  • Here is a Google map to get from the airport to the Cruz Bay St. John.
  • Once on St. John you can easily walk from the ferry terminal to the Visitor Center and here is your Google map for that short trip.

Did You Know?

Fruits from the Machineel tree that grows along the coastine on St. John.

The Machineel tree, found along the coast, produces crab apple-like fruit that is poisonous. While the fruit is deadly [as Columbus’ men reportedly found out in 1493 when visiting the island], even sap from the Machineel tree can cause an irritating skin rash. The tree is also called Death Apple.
