Google Earth Marine Project
Be sure to check out the Google Earth project! It provides you with everything you want to know about where to anchor, pick up a mooring, fish, or snorkel. Visit the Google Earth Project page to find the KMZ file, a video on how to use it and detailed instructions. You will then have all the boating and snorkeling information at your finger tips.
The phone system at Virgin Islands National Park is on its last legs. Calls to individual extensions will not go through, and voicemail is not functioning for numbers with a 776 prefix. Until a new system is installed, calls can only go to the main number, (340) 776-6201. Park staff will be available to answer calls from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but please contact individuals via their cell phone or e-mail. Phone lines with a 693 prefix are not affected.
