Protestant Cay is an anchorage in St. Croix.

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

The anchorages on St. Croix:

Location 

Protestant Cay is a small islet located on the northern side of St Croix island and not far from the most well-known town of Christiansted. The distance from the land is only 200 yards and visitors can take the ferry across  – which lasts less than 2 minutes. The passage is free for guests of the resort, the Hotel on the Cay, which is also the only one on the islet. It departs every 10 minutes between the hours of 7:00 am and midnight and is free for everyone after 4 pm. A small shop and beach bar are also located on the premises.


Navigation 

Approaching from the N and passing the inner channel between Barracuda Ground and Round Reef, yachters have the option to enter either from the SE towards St Croix Marina towards the E side of Protestant Cay or SW looking at the clock tower in the town. The water near the wharf and the old windmill are very shallow and should not be approached by most vessels. This is a crowded anchorage, with frequent ferries and seaplanes coming and going and very popular with the locals. Lots of permanent boats here.

General Information 

Visitors to the island arrive either at St. Thomas or St Croix Henry Rohlsen Airport. While the largest of the Virgin Islands, St Croix is the least visited destination for yacht charters in the region due to its distance from the other two islands. The islet of Protestant Cay provides one of the few beach areas in downtown Christiansted that is available for guests. For that, it can be quite busy during the day. Once ashore, the town offers the most basic amenities and tourist attractions that yacht charters will enjoy. Local restaurants, bars, and shops await. Don’t miss the opportunity to tour the town on foot and discover its many colourful attractions. The population of Christiansted is less than 3000 people but there are many tourists, yachters and crew members usually to be found around.  

Things to Do


Snorkelling & Swimming

Christiansted National Historic Site

The Christiansted National Historic Site covers seven acres and offers visitors a glimpse into the history of the island and Danish occupation. First established in 1952, this is a great place to explore on foot and tour the grounds and the fort.
