Our Henley Cay tour departs from Honeymoon Beach at Caneel Bay, St. John. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your tour.


Honeymoon Beach at Caneel Bay, St. John is located on the North Shore of the Virgin Islands National Park. You can reach Honeymoon Beach at Caneel Bay Resort several ways:

From St. John

  • By car (drive to Caneel Bay Resort, one mile from Cruz Bay)
  • By Taxi to Caneel Bay Resort
  • Or, hike the popular and easy one mile (20 minute) LIND POINT TRAIL, which departs from behind the VI National Park Visitor Center in Cruz Bay, a few blocks from the passenger ferry terminal.

From St. Thomas 

  • Take the ferry, which departs from Red Hook (the eastern most point of St. Thomas) every hour on the hour in both directions—$7 per person each way. The ferry is a 15 minute scenic and enjoyable ride. Once in St. John, walk two blocks to the left towards the VI National Park Visitor Center where you will find the Lind Point Trail that leads you to Honeymoon Beach at Caneel Bay—a one mile hike.
  • Or, bring your car on the barge which mostly leaves every 30 minutes and costs $50 round trip. This is a better deal than the passenger ferry if you have 4 or more people as it gives you flexibility without needing a taxi service once you are on St. John. You will find the car barge to the left of the people passenger ferry on St. Thomas in Red Hook. The last car barge departs St. John at 6:15pm to return to St. Thomas by 6:45 pm.
