The adventurous will not want to miss the exceptional scuba diving and snorkeling to be discovered in St. John's waters. On the North shore, Maho Bay, Francis Bay and Leinster Bay are lovely spots, noted for the crystalline waters. Energetic visitors follow the Leinster Bay trail to Watermelon Cay for a swim and to view some great coral.

Several water-sports centers are located in Cruz Bay, and each offers exciting dive trips. Some trips take you Southwest toward Great St. James; others go North and West to the waters off Jost Van Dyke and St. Thomas or Northeast to the nearby British Virgin Islands.

If one water-sport is king on St. John it is snorkeling. Most first-timers head for the underwater trail at Trunk Bay, which is a few hundred yards long. The National Park and a number of water-sports centers offer round-island tours. Lasting most of the day, these trips will take you to three or four locations, often places that can't be reached by car. One of the best stops is Flanagan's Cay, off the Southeastern coast, which has impressive coral heads-some as high as 12 feet-in only 20 feet of water.

You can combine snorkeling with sailing by joining one of the many day sails that depart from Cruz Bay. Carrying 6 to 12 passengers, the boats set sail around 10 a.m. Most sailing excursions serve lunch, and you return to Cruz Bay around 3 or 4 p.m.
