Hi All - We will be spending multiple days around St John. We are on a CAT that uses fresh water for the toilets and it goes through a lot of water. Is there a place on St John to fill up with water? Thanks in advance!

What, no water maker?!

If you draw less than 5' you can try the Caneel Bay fuel dock in the creek at Cruz Bay. It is easy to pop over to Red Hook and get a fill at American Yacht Harbor; that's what we do with our 6'5" draft and grab some frozen rigged ballyhoo at Neptune's.

Cheers, RickG

Rick, I draw 5'6" and never have a problem in Cruz Bay. We have run aground going into Compass Pt. before the dredging.
