That Pickles is actually Tickles Pub.....


I do agree that it will be difficult to run across small boat cruisers from the places the large Cruise Ships use.

I go into Crown Bay about twice a year but never for more than 2 days. In and out fast. Tickles Pub is popular with a wide mix of people and you could possibly find one. Crown Bay is the nearest point to pick up shipped items at the US Customs holding/storage facility.

Probably one of the best and most expensive Gourmet Galleries in the USVI and a nice place to pick up that special thing you miss or want on a cruise but you will have to part with lots of $$$$. Most walk a few blocks to one of the local bulk groceries and save.

I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.
