We walked over passing shop upon shops ( the posh of all the carribean harbour), the skyline early as recommended by others. We enjoyed the magnificent views of the harbour and our ship below. Our ship carnival vista was an amazing new ship that had everything you needed. But mainly americans and a few Canadians, so we were very pleased... More

Excellent views! Be sure to go on Weds nights for the local fare- only $5! You might have to show your hotel card or that you are on a boat. Also, if staying at the Marriott Cove- be sure to ask concierge if they have discounted tickets. Drinks up top at Paradise Point almost surpass the views!

I highly recommend this attraction. Now I'm local so it cost me 5 bucks opposed to 20 so that helps this be 5 stars. The view is gorgeous you can see Puerto Rico and everything around charlotte Amalie. There's a pirate shop at the top with hidden treasures found in boat wrecks. The lunch up there was great too and... More

A few friends and I bought our tickets on our cruise ship and rode a taxi right after getting off of the ship. After coming down and seeing the long line, I was glad that we did this first. We got to the paradise point and we went straight up without a line. There is a bar at the top... More

I confess that I am kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to rides like this. But I am soo glad I overcame my fears and phobias and got on the skyride to Paradise Point. The cars look clean and new, so that helped allay my fears somewhat. The views of the harbor where the cruise ships dock was spectacular.... More

We have been to St. Thomas over 20 times over the years off of cruise ships and private sailing vessels, but we have never taken the skyride until last week. Our cruise ship happened to dock near the Skyride and we really didn't need to go shopping again, so we decided to take the ride. It was beautiful and relaxing.... More

We took our 6 year old grandson on vacation with us and one of the places we wanted to visit with him was "the pirate store" at Paradise Point. We decided to go on resort discount night figuring we would have a crowd on our hands. When we got to the bottom of the skyride there was parking available and... More

A great place to look over St Thomas. can get a little bit busy when the there are a lot of cruise ships docked. This also means a small wait for the tram car to get up to the top. But once their the views are amazing, there is a bar and shops as well. A lovely spot to relax... More
