St. John’s terrain was formed from underwater volcanic eruptions a hundred million years ago. The result today is a string of towering Caribbean mountains, surrounded by underwater peaks and valleys that are filled with life.
At just 18 degrees north of the equator, St. John is also blessed with constant, cooling Tradewinds, which may feel chilly as you exit the clear waters from snorkeling, but are mighty nice to feel under the sun at high noon. Not only a national park on land, St. John is surrounded by healthy reefs that are also designated as part of the national park. Go paradise!
