The St. Croix East End Marine Park was established in 2003. Its designation unified and extended the previously identified territorially designated, Areas of Particular Concern (APCs) at Chenay Bay, the northern St. Croix Coral Reef System, East End, and Great Pond Bay.
The park’s recreation area allows s for snorkeling, diving with a flag, boating, personal watercraft use, and shoreline recreational take line fishing. Marine Park permits may also be issued for catch-and-release guide fishing and cast-net bait fishing. All other traditional fishing (spearfishing, traps/pots) is prohibited.
