Snorkel the only underwater national monument in existence

This tour is exclusively for guests of The Buccaneer Hotel. Departing from the hotel dock located in front of The Mermaid Restaurant and arriving at Buck Island Island just 15 minutes later is a great way to make the most of your morning or afternoon. You’ll enjoy a guided tour with one of our expert guides through the Nation’s first underwater trail, one of St. Croix’s most famous snorkeling destinations. Next, we will head to Turtle Beach “one of the world’s best beaches” according to National Geographic where you can relax, go on a beach walk, sunbathe or swim. We will cruise back to the Buccaneer searching for dolphins and sea turtles while you sip on our locally distilled Cruzan Rum Punch included in your ticket price.
