Comments This was an extended family trip with 4 adults and 4 teens/young adults. We chose St. John because it is a beautiful island that we all enjoy, and we knew it would be a good spot for one of the kids to do his open-water certification dives.

We all enjoy Gallows Point Resort because of the condos and the easy walk into town to go to the dive shop, restaurants, shops, and other activities. This eliminates the hassle of finding a parking spot in a crowded tourist town. Some of the group went snorkeling at a variety of beaches on one day and hired a driver which worked out fine.

The person in our group who was doing his open-water certification dives felt very comfortable with Max, his instructor for those dives. ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

Closest Airport Getting There Flew from Miami to St. Thomas, USVI. After arrival in St. Thomas we shared a cab/van to Red Hook where we took a ferry to St. John. Sounds like a lot, but its very easy and scenic. The resort sent their van to pick us up at the ferry dock.
