St. Croix Island Guide: Taxis & Rates Taxis are a popular transportation choice for visitors to St. Croix. The most popular are vans, open air safaris (converted trucks; truck beds are customized with bench seating in an open-air covered area) and SUV’s. Taxis on St. Croix are not metered and, as you will see below, rates are per person and per destination and are set by the VI Taxicab Division. Taxi Tips
-Taxis are almost always on standby at the cruise ship dock when ships are in port, at the airport, the Seaplane Terminal, at th taxi stand area in down town Christiansted as at some of the more popular eateries.
- Licensed taxi vehicles are labeled including taxi capacity. The drivers personal identification/taxi license should be on the vehicles dash board.
- Beware of “gypsy taxis" in their personal vehicles. They do not adhere to the rules of the taxi commission and you should use them at your own risk.
- Although rates are standardized it is strongly recommended that you speak to the driver and agree to your total rate (for you, your group, your luggage, waiting, tour) before boarding the taxi.
-If you like the service provided by your driver, he will be pleased to provide his business card and cell number so you can call on him later in your stay.

The Ann E. Abramson Pier is named in honor of the Virgin Islands
Public Works Commissioner who was responsible for much of the
rejuvenation of the Frederiksted area. This is the pier where most
of the large cruise ships dock, as well as military ships,
submarines, and other naval vessels. From time to time, tall-ships
especially from Denmark, can be seen here.
The dock itself has been a favorite diving place especially for
viewing bright coral, sponges, and a multitude of fish life. A night
dive should reveal the sea-horses unique to this pier. Visitors
arriving at the pier often walk through the small town of
Frederiksted and walk to the nearby beaches and beach club
