    Pirates Treasure: A Shipwreck Museum and Store Set sail and discover the Pirates Treasure Museum! Experience hands-on, interactive exhibits that share the tales and treasures of deep-ocean exploration. Visitors will delve into a fascinating bounty of pirate legend and historical fact and re-live the heroic passenger accounts of surviving storm-tossed seas and sinking ships. Climb aboard and prepare for an exciting journey through an engaging and family friendly shipwreck adventure. The Pirates Treasure is a Shipwreck Museum born of the combined passions of two Virgin Island companies, CD Paradise Management and Prosperitas Investment Management. Showcasing authentic artifacts and treasures from the world-famous deep-ocean discoveries of Odyssey Marine Exploration, the museum also highlights Virgin Islands shipwrecks and artifacts. The two-story museum incorporates history and interactive exhibits to immerse visitors in the world of pirates and the deep-ocean exploration technology used to recover treasures that were once thought lost forever. These stories and artifacts offer insight and a physical connection to the Caribbean and the world, as it was hundreds or even thousands of year ago! Read the story behind local pirates and their lost and found treasure in this intriguing article by local diver and preservationist, Leah Randall.

  • Island Muse Boutique

    Island Muse Boutique is a Local Creative Collective showcasing the unique, handmade work of dozens of local, Caribbean artists who are inspired by the amazing island environment around us (including many of St. John’s favorite, local artists). The shop, located in the heart of Coral Bay, is a unique blend of art gallery and souvenir shop. Island Muse Boutique was opened in 2015 by a group of St. John ladies who wanted to make beautiful, handcrafted island inspired art and promote a healthy lifestyle. *Across from Skinny Legs (2nd floor in the Town&Country building) Coral Bay, United States

  • Sloop Jones

    Sloop Jones Hand Painted Clothes When we say that all of our wearable art is hand-painted in small batches in our garden studio, we really mean it. Also, we are a very small team. This is a mass-production free zone. It’s part of what makes Sloop Jones so charming! Because of our tiny operation, we don’t always have every collection in stock in every size. And we can have something in one day, and our customers on island will sell us out of it the next. If you see a color collection you like, but don’t find it in the style you’re looking for, please just get in touch with us. We’ll either put it on the painting schedule or find something similar to suit you.
