Great Cruz Bay is an anchorage in St John.

St John is a charter location in St. John, a yacht charter area in US Virgin Islands.

The anchorages on St John:

Location 

Great Cruz Bay is located on the southwestern coast of St John island and is part of the United States Virgin Islands or USVI in the Caribbean Sea. Not to be confused with the more popular Cruz Bay area to the north where visitors will find all the main tourist facilities. The area has become synonymous with the breathtaking resort of The Westin, which encompasses around 1,2000 feet of private white sand beach and offers visitors a tranquil place to soak up the sun and indulge in island life holiday glamour. 


Navigation 

Most visitors will access from the north after leaving behind Contant Pt. This is a wide bay that offers relatively good protection from the winds. The dock can only be used by service ferries and the hotel’s own boats. Most of the mooring buoys are taken up by locals and other visitors so getting a spot might be hard, especially if you are arriving later in the day. The NE part of the bay offers the deepest waters between 4-5m. Caution should be taken when approaching the E side of the bay where the water quickly reaches depths of less than 2m.

Provisioning 

Great Cruz Bay is not an ideal provisioning spot. Visitors should head to Cruz Bay for restaurants, shops, cafes and general amenities.


General Information 

Great Cruz Bay is ideally located for excursions into the main town of Cruz Bay and is near beautiful coves and small bays that yacht charters can look forward to exploring. The presence of the hotel also provides options for wining and dining in style if you so desire. This area was hit hard by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017 and reopened in 2019 after a long period of recovery. Most of the palm trees that lined the lacy coast were destroyed. Yet, there is no denying the unspoilt beauty of the area has remained intact. There are also various watersport rentals for more moments of fun out on the water.
