Trunk 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 

Trunk Bay is a beach on the northern side of St John island in the Caribbean that is part of the Virgin Island National Park. Visitors arriving at the USVI need to appear at Customs & Immigration in Cruz Bay first. The northern coastline of St John from Cruz Bay heading east towards, Caneel Bay and Hawknest Bay then reaching Maho Bay, is one of the most beautiful spots in the world and a dream come true for yachters that get to experience it. 


Navigation 

Be careful on approach for the reef to the N of the bay. On the islet of Trunk Cay on the E side, you will find private buoys that mark restricted areas that can’t be used. Most of the mooring balls can only be used for one day. When the winds blow, the swell from the NE can create uncomfortable rolling. Use of anchors is prohibited.

Provisioning 

This mooring spot is not ideal for provisioning. It is of note that the island of St John does not have any marinas. 


General Information 

Trunk Bay is the most popular and photographed spot on the island and has one of the best beaches in the world that frequently features on travel brochures and Top 10 lists. A paradise for snorkel and diving enthusiasts it is also included in most island day tours. This makes it a busy and crowded spot when the ferries arrive but it tends to be quieter later in the day. Azure waters and lush greenery complete the setting. Keep in mind that Trunk Bay is part of the Virgin Islands National Park and there is a small fee to enter.
