World famous Trunk Bay got its name from the Leatherback turtle which once nested there in abundance. The Danes claimed the turtle resembled a large leather trunk. Next time you are on an Eastern or Southern Caribbean Cruise and it includes a stop in St. Thomas take a quick trip over to Trunk Bay one of the most visited park sites part of the Virgin Islands National Park system. You can get there either by shore excursion through your cruise ship excursion desk or even booked before you leave on your trip on the cruise line's website, via the Red Hook Ferry in St Thomas, or by taking a private excursion.
