Find Family Fun Under the Sun in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands for Five Days & Four Nights at The Buccaneer in One Guestroom for Two Adults and Two Children, Including Snorkeling and Kayak Lessons, Crab Racing, Introduction to SCUBA Lessons and a Buck Island Reef Snorkel Trip (Land Only)

Founded in the 17th century and family-run for nearly 70 years, St. Croix's Buccaneer is the Caribbean's and Virgin Island's longest running resort with a history of embracing generations with family activities and accommodations. Both historic and modern, the resort blends old world charm with warm hospitality, and amazing amenities with captivating adventures, providing you with a premier Caribbean destination. Bring your brood to one of the best family resorts, according to Forbes, where you can run, splash and play on the expansive grounds - just save time for the crab races and snorkeling!

The Buccaneer earns its reputation for excellence by providing a luxurious yet comfortable country-club setting conducive to relaxed family fun. With 340 self-contained tropical acres, the resort is a natural playground for all ages. Three glorious beaches provide the back-drop for days of snorkeling and kayaking (which you'll take lessons for!), and lounging. Golf, tennis and learn-to-scuba classes are on the premises for teens, while the younger set (4-12 year olds) gathers for the complimentary Kids' Camp. Grab the gang and head to the beach for rousing games of soccer, basketball and volleyball! Around St. Croix, families delight in sailing and snorkeling at the Buck Island National Park, horseback riding, kayak tours, island tours and shopping in Christiansted. The weekly running of the crabs is a Buccaneer tradition, and is especially appreciated by the under-betting-age set! You can reflect on the natural beauty and tropical rhythm around you as the salty sea breeze ruffles your hair and the sea mist kisses your face, the sun slips into the horizon casting fiery hues of orange and ochre.

Enjoy the popular snorkel trip to Buck Island Reef, one of the best destinations for snorkeling in the Caribbean! Departing Christiansted harbor twice daily, and arriving at Buck Island Reef National Monument 30 minutes later by power boat, you'll enjoy a guided tour of the nation's first underwater trail and an hour of snorkeling. Next head to Turtle Beach, proclaimed one of the world's best beaches according to National Geographic, where you can relax, sunbathe, swim, or enjoy the wildlife.

There is so much to do at The Buccaneer and in St. Croix! Soak up the sun from the golden shores of Mermaid Beach, Grotto Beach and Whistle Beach, or wade into the water for a refreshing dip in the Caribbean! You can also take advantage of the resort?s complimentary use of ocean kayaks, water sport gear, floating mats, beach toys and games. Back at the resort, you can enjoy two pools, opt for a competitive game of tetherball or beachside basketball. If tennis is your game, meet the resort?s pro and hit the courts for some action! The premier golf course overlooks the stunning beaches, adding a tropical flair to this classic sport. And the Hideaway Spa will nourish your body, mind and soul, pampering you from head to toe. Take a morning stroll on a nature and history walk, or meander along the two-mile jogging trail. St. Croix artist Jane Aiken leads a watercolor class on the beautiful Great House Terrace, with expansive views to serve as inspiration. Unwind each day in the comfort of your ocean view guestroom, designed to be an intimate retreat that reflects the timeless elegance of The Buccaneer.
