The tacos are made with fresh and locally-sourced ingredients and are served with homemade salsas and sauces. The restaurant also offers other food options, such as ceviche, guacamole, and chips.

Lime Out is a floating taco boat! Once to Coral Bay, Captain will pick up a Mooring ball and everyone gets into the water to swim to the Lime Out area. We have a dry bag or dry case if you need to take things like phones with you. Plan to stay for a while soaking in the sun, playing in the water along with enjoying the tasty tacos and drinks! Lime Out is open 11 am - 5 pm everyday except Saturday.
We recommend stopping at one or two locations, either a beach or snorkel stop before heading into the Lime Out area. Lime Out is on the East side of St John. Those locations can be the north shore of St. John, Lovango Cay or Christmas Cove.
If you would like to go all the way around St John, the north shore beaches are the best choice.
Below is information all the options:
St. John North Shore
Salmon or Honeymoon Beach, beautiful white sand beach. Play in the water or explore and take some great pics, as these beaches are harder to get to from land.
Maho Bay is where you can swim with turtles. There are also shops and food. It is a calm bay where it is fun to spend time on land and water
Waterlemon Cay and Mary's Point are for snorkeling. As you snorkel around St John you will see different combinations of fish, turtles, rays, sea creatures, coral and plant life. Leinster Bay is home to Waterlemon Cay and Mary's Point. There is so much to see and explore in this bay.
Haulover, when the seas are calm this is a fun snorkel spot.
St. John South Shore
A visitor favorite is Salt Pond Bay, with snorkeling around the bay, Sea Grass that turtles love and two trails that start there. It is a beautiful area and you see only the ocean looking to the south.
Lameshur Bay is a calm bay, great for beginners. On the East side is great snorkeling as you follow the land. In the West is a rock group. Then around the bay is Sea Grass that turtles and other sea creatures love! This is a bay to explore.
Would you like to see the Reef Bay Petroglyphs and the Reef Bay Sugar Factory District hiking all the way back up after going from the top to the water? We will take you into Reef Bay for you to swim to shore and explore. Easier than that hike back up the mountain, promise!
Did you know…? Lovongo has created an underwater coral area with their name? You can plan this as one of your stops. ? You can see how ocean creatures are making the wire block letters their home. If you are a regular, this is a rare opportunity to watch the growth through the years. Then, before leaving this area, take a minute on the water to see Carvel Rock and the neighboring islands. The channel between Lovango and Mingo is magical, the color of the water is spectacular.
Located near the island of Great St. James in the United States Virgin Islands, is this picturesque cove. It is a popular destination for snorkeling, diving, and boating due to its clear blue waters, coral reefs, and abundance of marine life.
Visitors to Christmas Cove can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and diving in the warm waters of the cove, and can explore the coral reefs and marine life that make their home in the area. The cove is also known for its beautiful sunsets, which provide a stunning backdrop for a romantic evening or a relaxing drink on the beach. Overall, Christmas Cove is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to the US Virgin Islands who loves sun, sand, and sea.
Snorkeling off Little St James
It never ceases to amaze what is below the surface of the water. Yes! Putting on snorkel equipment and diving in, the fish and coral never disappoint. Snorkeling Little St. James starts with anchoring where there is a soft sand bed for the anchor. You will need to swim a little bit to reach the reef. The coral explodes in coverage once you get to the reef.
You will see many types and colors of fish through your snorkel. The Blue Tang are always a delight to see with their elegant body shape and blue color to contrast in the clear ocean water. Sergeant Major’s are always fun with their friendly black and white stripes with a hint of yellow. Other damsel fish can be found like the Black Damsel. Schools of fish will punctuate your visit.
