24 Stunning Photos of St Thomas From The Ocean

24 Stunning Photos of St. Thomas from the Ocean

After spending our morning on an ecotour at Cas Cay, and our afternoon navigating to a vegetarian cafe in Charlotte Amalie, we were back aboard the cruise ship. With iced coffee beverages in hand, we found the perfect spot on one of the upper open decks of the Caribbean Princess. Finally, for the first time on this vacation, we had planned our time effectively in order to glance over the railing as we sailed away. St. Thomas is such a gorgeous island in the US Virgin Islands that it couldn’t help but offer beautiful views. The scenes became more and more stunning as we sailed away from the island. The highly populated areas dwindled, revealing vibrant green mountainsides. I partially envied those who were still riding on the pirate ships or smaller sailboats, though I was eager to find out what the evening aboard the cruise ship would bring. Plus, we were headed to the Turks and Caicos the next day, a place where I’d never been before. We were able to see several other isolated plots of land as we drifted across the sea. In one of those occasions where pictures speak louder than words, let us show you 24 stunning photos of St Thomas from the ocean.

The entire day made me fall in love with the island even more, and this scenery was a fitting farewell. I’m sure I’ll see you again, St. Thomas.

      It is such a beautiful spot in the world. Hope you get to visit sometime!

  2. Love these photos Justin + Lauren! I haven’t been to St. Thomas but have had it on my list. An Eco-Tour sounds like a great thing to do there.

    Hi Lauren,

    Awesome photos! I dig ’em especially because images are snapped from the ocean. I’ve not seen that much as most folks do the land snap bit, which is a ton more common. I enjoyed the perspective and as for the water, book me a ticket now. Bali to St. Thomas, no direct flights lol.

    Tweeting now.

      Ryan, thank you so much! Haha I’m not quite sure that I’d want to leave Bali though! Thanks so much for the tweet 🙂

    Wonderful photos. I have only stopped in St. Thomas on the way to/from St. John. Worth an explore.

      Thanks so much! For me, it’s the opposite – I’ve been to St. John once from St. Thomas. It’s a great area for island hopping!

    The water looks very inviting! And the colour and style of the houses and buildings areinteresting – not at all like I had imagined.

      The water is great to take a dip, fabulous beaches there too. A very pretty place that definitely shouldn’t be overlooked!

    Great images! Spent a week sailing from the BVI in 2000. This brings back found memories.

    As you said in the title, Stunning! We were in St. Thomas years ago and Magens Bay blew us away. It’s at the top of our “return to” list and hopefully we’ll get there soon.

  10. Wow, St. Thomas is stunning indeed. I wonder how expensive all those houses are. I especially like the one large villa with the pirate ship in front of it. Looks like a scenic way to sail out of port.

    These photos are just gorgeous! I love all of the colorful buildings.

  14. […] Cay and dining at a Rastafarian vegetarian restaurant in Frenchtown, we had gazed out to sea during a gorgeous sailaway from an upper deck of the Caribbean Princess. Even though Robyn and I had an incredibly busy day […]
