One of the best ways to experience St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, or any island for that matter, is by boat. Who could resist the sapphire shaded water, soft sand beaches and swaying palm trees? The next time you’re in the islands, don’t just stand on land and admire the water, rent a boat and get out there on it.

Whether you rent a power boat or book a captained charter aboard a sleek catamaran sailboat, a day of reeling in trophy fish, sailing around the islands or snorkeling in crystal clear water will be one of your best memories. We’ve come up with a few St. Thomas USVI boat rental suggestions to add to your island itinerary.
