The best way to see and explore St. John or the Virgin Islands is a boat charter. You can go on a powerboat charter, go on a day sail on a shooner or catamaran or rent a dinghy and be your own captain (expect to get wet, however). Prices are start from 130$ for small dinghy for the day (expect to get no further than Maho) or 275$ for a larger dinghy. Powerboat Charters start from 250$ for a sunset cruise, 400$ for half a day or 600$+ for a full day. When comparing prices, compare the total costs. Some companies advertise low prices but you will have to pay for fuel at end of day.
