Snorkeling and scuba diving
Some of the best snorkeling anywhere can be found at the beaches in the park and around St. John. A brochure available at the visitors center describes the various locations.
Sailing, kayaking and windsurfing
At the Cinnamon Bay beach, rentals are available for a variety of sailboats, kayaks and windsurfers. The bay is large, and prevailing winds make for exciting sailing.
Did You Know?
The Spiny Sea Urchin has long spines that can readily penetrate the skin on the slightest touch, causing severe pain and possibly allergic reactions. Because the barbs cannot be completely removed, soaking affected areas in vinegar can speed up the in-body dissolving time, typically 3-4 weeks.
