Re: Going to St Thomas airport, AVI's,Caribbean

I've done a dinghy ride in from the Water island anchorage to Lindbergh Bay, but the scramble up the rocks and sand would not be best if you are picking up your mother-in-law.

I've tried to drop family off at the Crown Bay Marina fuel dock. After I bought $150 worth of fuel, they told me it would be another $25 per person for my guests to walk down their dock. I told them to put it where the sun doesn't shine, and took the big boat though haulover cut to downtown Charlotte Amalie, where I pulled up alongside the town quay for a minute while the guests hopped off and grabbed a taxi 2 miles to the airport on Veterans Drive. If you have cell phones, it would be easy to come in and pick them up there.

OTOH, if its after dark and you don't want the family mugged, you'd best use the marina.
