Google Earth Marine Project

Virgin Islands National Park includes much of the water and sea floor surrounding St. John. If you are visiting by boat or operating a vessel in National Park waters, please familiarize yourself with the policies and regulations about these marine resources. The following Google Earth project provides you with an interactive way to familiarize yourself with the resources. You can also download the Superintendent's Compendium for detailed information.
