The Bolongo Bay Beach Resort on the island of St Thomas carries out a weekly snorkel scavenger hunt, where guests compete to find hidden bottles of Cruzan rum under the sea. The resort’s staff hides about half as many 200ml bottles as there are guests in the 62-room resort, so snorkellers have a 50-50 chance of getting a prize. Those who find more than one must leave additional bottles beneath the water for other guests.
Officially called the “Snorkel Booze Hunt”, the tradition has been going strong for more than 30 years.
Even those who are not lucky enough to win their own souvenir bottle have plenty of chances to indulge in some Cruzan, the Virgin Islands’ local rum, distilled on the nearby island of St Croix. Bartenders at the resort’s swim-up poolside bar and the resort’s casual restaurant, Iggie’s Beach Bar, concoct pina coladas, daiquiris and even a drink called VooDoo Juice, a mix of flavoured rums and juice served in a bucket.
Sounds like a great time!
