This ride takes you to the top of Paradise Point where you can see the entire bay area and Charlotte Amalie. But even better is the deal if you go on Wednesday after 5PM. When we did it in October, the cost to ride was...More

I was expecting a spectacular view of the island, but it doesn’t go all the way to the top, so you just look back over the harbour where the cruise ships are parked.

Skyride was just okay. Very touristy. Did this after going to Magen's Bay before heading back to the cruise ship. Saw better views going and coming back from Magen’s Bay.

Visited ST Thomas on a cruise, we had little time in port, besides the sky-ride there were not many other options, only the usual snorkelling and island tour options, st thomas is word class in shopping, not really on hospitality

We took the short walk from our cruise ship to the Skyride and it was fairly uneventful. As with any port of call, you are constantly hounded by gypsy cab drivers offering tours of the town etc. Once we bought our tickets and boarded the...More
