My normal thing to do in St. Thomas is hop the ferry to St. John and catch a cab to Trunk Bay. We've done Sapphire Beach, Magen's Bay and Coki beach on St. Thomas. We did the Bluebeard tour and a bunch of catamaran sail/snorkels over to Buck Island. We've also done some shopping there. St. Thomas, to me, is no where near as nice as it was 20 years ago. It's not one of my favorites, but the saving grace is I can hop over to St. John. Maybe it's just because it seems that every Caribbean cruise stops in St. Thomas. Anyway, never did the jeep thing. Hope y'all enjoy it!
I plan to do Magen's Bay in just a couple of weeks, I will report on my return if it isn't to late. I also agree with penny3333 that St Thomas is not what it used to be. We were there only last year and I went for a run, not 20 min into it (say 2 miles at my old man pace) I saw abandoned cars and slum like housing. I turned around and headed back to the realtive safety of the pier area. I hear St Johns is still very nice.
