We went to frederiksted pier many times on our last visit. We went to jump of the pier (just do it!), snorkel, and scuba dive. It is magical. Make time to go to the pier!!

My wife and I did a daytime pier dive with Kristen of the "Scuba" dive company. Because of the shallow depth, we were able to stay under for over 80 minutes on 1 tank. The piers display an amazing depth and breadth of sea life....More

We did a Discovery Dive at Adventures in Dive STX with my 10 year old son. Beautiful dive with lots of fish, coral, and other creatures to see. We will go back! Definitely recommend this dive to new and seasoned divers.

We were told to jump off this pier by friends who'd visited in 2016. It was a little daunting, but with the help of some local kids, we did it. And it was awesome.

The pier itself is a place to go walk out look around and say you've been there. Not much going on unless there's a special event or a cruise ship in port. The area has some shopping and if you places to grab a drink...More

We had a great time snorkeling the pillars under the pier. While not a reef, there is a lot of coral and marine life on and around these pillars. If you look closely you get to see all sorts of small creatures. Be careful not...More
