You can feel good flying Seaborne Airlines to St. Thomas, the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands.   St. Thomas is world-famous for its bustling harbor of Charlotte Amalie.   One of the most active cruise ship ports in the Caribbean, downtown Charlotte Amalie is the hub of duty-free shopping, especially for jewelry, electronics and fashion – all at unbelievable prices.

But there is so much more to St. Thomas than its busy harbor.   A lively restaurant and nightlife scene promises to thrill you, as well as the scenic overlooks throughout the island that offer spectacular views of the surrounding islands of Water Island, St. John, and the British Virgin Islands.     St. Thomas is the capital of the US Virgin Islands and government employees frequently use the Seaborne seaplane and airport service  to get to and from the St. Thomas district to St. Croix.
