I'm going back to St. Croix in March 08. I lived on St. Croix for 6 months. The best thing about the pier was when you had bad weather on the island you could always go to the protected West coast pier. Don't pass up the small creatures on the pier columns. Really! Look at the small stuff. You will not be disappointed! You will see Seahorses, tons of small crabs, Sea Slugs, a Frog fish or two, Barracudas and Turtles. Lightly touch a small Christmas tree worm and see what they do. You can rent a tank across the street and jump in the water. Convenient.
