Settle in for a spectacularly scenic drive around St. Thomas, much of it on the elevated road Skyline Drive. As you begin to ascend into the hills, you will enjoy sweeping views of the sea and your cruise ship in the harbor. The higher you go, the more extraordinary the views. Occasional stops at the most picturesque vantage points will provide historical perspectives as well, as the guide will point out and describe the sights. For instance, the Drake’s Seat lookout is named for Sir Francis Drake, the English explorer and privateer that supposedly watched over the harbor from there in the late 1500s. For the ultimate bird’s-eye view, you will stop at Mountain Top, the highest point on St. Thomas. From there, you will be treated to panoramas of the island and the British Virgin Islands in the distance. Your excursion includes your round-trip tram ride. Once at the top, there are souvenir shops, tasty treats and beverages for purchase, including the World Famous Bailey’s Bushwacker and the brand new Skywalk. Beautiful views of the harbor, your ship, downtown historic Charlotte Amalie, surrounding islands can be seen and on a clear day you can see all the way to St. Croix and Vieques. Be sure to bring you camera to capture the amazing views you’ll see on this tour. After descending by tram, you can shop at Havensight Mall next to the cruise pier.
