Welcome to St Croix

Perhaps because St Croix drifts by its lonesome 40 miles south of the other Virgins, the vibe here is different: it feels less touristy, less congested, and more 'lived in' by locals. It has two main towns: Christiansted, the largest, sits on the northeast shore. Frederiksted, its much quieter counterpart, resides on the west end, where an occasional cruise ship glides in and kicks up the pace.

Closer in shore we are often privileged to sight the rare Humpback Dolphin. Southern Right Whales pop up in the strangest places - from along the beachfront, to right in front of the harbour, amongst ships at anchor and close to Bird Island.Every day at sea is different, every day an adventure. The AB Marine web site has loads of information on what to see in Algoa Bay as well as the best times to see certain species.A thimbleful of experience at sea with AB Marine Whale and Dolphin Watching will fill your bucket list to overflowing.Duration: 2 hoursLocation: PE Deep Sea Angling Club
