FREE PELICAN RIDES

Caribbean Pelican Rides, the new amphibious waterfront attraction, is offering free rides to the first five persons showing up at its Coast Guard dock location Sunday. Rides begin at 1 p.m and run hourly through 4 p.m.
The Pelican is the idea of local resident Sonya Nelthropp to provide a land and water tour of Charlotte Amalia Harbor. The craft, itself, is a British version of the World War 11 landing craft called a "duck." Nelthropp stressed that the tours would be fun for residents, as well as tourists. There are special rates for residents.
The 55 minute tour takes you from the Coast Guard dock along Veterans Drive, through Frenchtown and to the ramp at Gregery channel, where it becomes a boat. It then kind of swims out by Water and Hassle Islands, providing a little history of St. Thomas, and winding up back at the Coast Guard dock where parking is provided.
