Charlotte Amalie is the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands and one of the busiest ports of call in the Caribbean. Originally named after the queen consort to King Christian of Denmark, this lovely city has numerous examples of Danish architecture as well as many buildings of historical significance. Sightseeing is a popular pastime in addition to beach and water activities and many other Charlotte Amalie Excursions, check out our St. Thomas Private Island Highlights Sightseeing Excursion. A tropical island with much to do is always a great combination for tourists and we have quite a selection of Charlotte Amalie Shore Excursions to choose from to help make your visit special.
This island was once made infamous through its attraction to pirates such as Blackbeard and Bluebeard and there are even castles built by the Danes that are attributed to these men. With a deep sea port and lots of nature, pirates were able to hide both themselves and, supposedly, their treasure.
English is spoken just about everywhere and the US dollar is often able to be used when shopping at the many unique boutiques and galleries located on St. Thomas. Although today this city is very sophisticated and modern the island itself has, somehow, retained the feeling of a tropical island getaway, you will be able to experience this while on our St. Thomas Ocean Kayak, Sea Turtle Snorkel and Beach Break Excursion and on our St. Thomas Lindbergh Bay Beach Ocean Kayak and Snorkel Excursion. We feel confident that you will enjoy your stay and our excursions can help you to experience the best of this lovely cruise ship destination.
Fun fact: The U.S. Virgin Islands is the only location in the United States of America where one drives on the left side of the road.
