About this listing
Stay a the dock at the famous Latitude 18 on a 1972 Columbia 36'. Roomy below and plush, she sits 300' from a beach and the Town of Red Hook / ferry dock is within walking distance across the harbor . Free parking, WiFi, and live music every night!
The boat is located in a little piece of paradise on the East End of St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands!
We now offer airport pick-up and drop-off and concierge service through JMS Travel for no extra charge (Regular taxi fares apply). No long taxi rides with a bunch of strangers... Just inquire when booking.
You get the atmosphere of friendly locals. A really beautiful beach with snorkeling, snorkel gear if you want it, a very quaint and tropical restaurant and bar (the best food on island!), with live music every night in season, there are even Tarpon swimming right off the dock and you can feed them! You have lots of options.
REMEMBER! IT IS A BOAT and can be a bit challenging to get on or off if the seas are rough! We try to set it up so that you can get on comfortably, though.
Part of the adventure!
Not really meant for families of five. Mostly single traveling professionals and couples like this best, but you can sleep five and we have before!
Everything on board is yours to use! TV, free Wi-Fi, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker.
We are around to greet you and get you started on your adventure. We are around if you need us (5 minutes), but we usually just let you do your thing!
It is in paradise and all of our friends and neighbors are like family.
You'll get the feel for it as soon as you get here!
There is free parking if you rent a car. There are taxis. The ferry terminal is across the harbor. Red Hook is walking distance. People will give you a ride if they are headed that way.
As mentioned, getting aboard might be a challenge for some, so people with mobility issues and those who succumb to seasickness might want to think twice.
The boat is super comfortable with a comfortable bathroom and spacious sleeping and relaxing room. Wake up and enjoy your coffee with a view of the Caribbean!
Everything on the boat is yours to use. Snorkel gear upon request, games, dvds, TV, microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, free WiFi.
We like to meet our guests, but it is your vacation! We are there if they need us or if they want to learn a bit about the island. We operate a charter boat company and have been here 16 years, so we know a little bit about the area. Otherwise we want you to spend your vacation comfortably and we won't be in your hair!
I am five minutes from you if something starts happening. We are not always there, but if you call me at a reasonable hour, I will make sure we fix any problems you might have.
It is the Caribbean.
It has access to shops, grocery, night life, beaches, clear pristine Caribbean waters, live music, great restaurants. National park nearby for exercising and walking. Just a ferry ride away From St. John! The best part is the people and atmosphere at the dock where you reside!
It is a boat you are staying on, so you will meet some other boaters and locals that use Latitude as their favorite watering hole.
Dive shops / scuba charters and fishing charters and rental boats at the marina across the harbor. Grocery, shopping, night life, beach with palm trees...
Taxis are always available. You can rent a car here for a reasonable price, and you have a parking place for your car with the rental! Lots of things - like the beach and National
Park area, and Red Hook and Ferries are in short walking distance.
PLEASE READ THIS!!!
Remember it IS a sailboat and it moves around a bit if the seas pick up. People who are prone to seasickness or people who are physically challenged should think twice about this (it is not usually very rough in this harbor but the boat moves to the tune of the ocean).
Also - you have to make a big step to get on the boat from the dock, but it is fairly easy. Just part of the adventure!
We are in the US Virgin Islands and things take a little longer to get done here. Therefore we are considered a 2nd world territory! Power goes out sometimes, water supply runs out, things like that are all part of living here and we ask that you have patience when these issues arise.
There are taxis that can pick you up. You can rent a car. You can take the 15 minute walk to Red Hook, where the ferries to St. John and the BVI's are. Also we have two bicycles that you can use in the daytime for nearby exploring or a quick trip to the grocery.
Other Things to Note
By booking with St. Thomas Floating Condos you automatically agree to the terms and conditions of the waiver and lease posted at the bottom of this section. Please read on...
Please remember it is a boat. It is adventurous and fun, but not for everyone.
There is a small dorm size fridge and if you are just arriving you might want to stop to get some items from the grocery, but do not get too much. If you do get too much, there is a cooler on the dock.
PLEASE do not swim in the marina! There is a beach 300' away!
We do offer showers, but none of our boats have hot water. The water temperature in the tank is around 75 - 78 degrees.
