Getting There Visitors to St. John arrive by boat, since there is no airport. Unless you have a private boat, the simplest way to reach St. John is to fly to St. Thomas then take a ferry from either the Charlotte Amalie harbor or Red Hook. NOTE: The area code on St. John is 340. By Ferry From St. Thomas Cruz Bay on St. John is only three miles across Pillsbury Sound from Red Hook, and ferries make the 20-minute trip every hour from 6 am until midnight. Schedules change, but normally the first ferry leaves Cruz Bay for St.

These rival tribes live in separate communities on many islands for more than a century. 1493: Christopher Columbus and his crew sail into Salt River Bay on St. Croix and find the island inhabited by Carib Indians. The explorers sail north, through a cluster of islands that they call Las Virgines in honor of the virgin followers of St. Ursula, a religious order that was slaughtered by the Huns during the fourth century. 1500s: Spain declares ownership of the entire West Indies by right of discovery, and no other governments have the resources or power to challenge the claim.

Weather patterns are remarkably stable, and when an occasional storm does kick up, it usually moves on to the north before it becomes strong enough to do much damage. Temperatures range from the 70s at night to the 80s during the day, with rare and brief periods of higher heat on a few summer afternoons. Even during the rainy season, which runs from late summer through autumn, most days are sunny, and only 40 to 50 inches of rain fall each year. Visitors who enjoy sailing and windsurfing can depend on a steady 15- to 20-knot northeast trade wind during the winter and a slightly weaker southeast breeze during the summer.
