What to do?


Recommended Posts

We are sailing on the Allure at the end of March 2015, and this will be our first time to St. Thomas. I have looked at all of the options the ship has to offer and just not sure what to do. We have a daughter age 14, and want to do something fun with her. She has already done the dolphin swim. Looking for maybe a boat tour with some drinks for mom and dad, (nothing too crazy) and want our daughter to enjoy as well. We are not familiar with any of the beaches, so any advice or ideas would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!:confused:

What does your 14 year old like to do? Each person is different.


If she's done a dolphin swim and liked that, she may like swimming or encountering with other sea creatures. Coral World offers sea lion swims that are a blast! The sea lions do more tricks than dolphins.


Also at Coral World where they have sea lion swims, you can get in a pool with sea turtles and touch them under supervision. You can't touch them in the wild on sea turtle excursions so Coral World gives you more interaction.


If she likes crafts she may want to design and make her own jewelry from ethnic materials at the Shaka Zulu store in town.


If she likes pampering you might do a spa day.


If she likes adventure then maybe the zipline.

Thanks for the suggestions, much appreciated. I am looking at one of power cat tours, which will last 4 hours. Are the beaches close to the ship, worth visiting for the rest of the day? I'm sure they will see the stores for shopping, just don't want to waste a day in paradise looking through stores.

The beaches closest to the ships are great relaxing beaches, but also have motorized options for those looking for more excitement.


Morningstar and Emerald are beaches closest to the ships. Emerald is generally calmer but Morningstar is better for skimboarding.
