Denis Bay St. John US Virgin Islands

Denis Bay

The old pilings seen in the above image used to support a dock in the days when Denis Bay was home to the Deep Sea Fishing Club.

The club was available to the general public with hotel services and conveniences for $22.00 per week with all meals included. It was described by Desmond Holdbridge in his book Escape to the Tropics, written in 1937 as “a quaint institution, now non-existent, where no fishing was ever done.”

The Deep Sea Fishing Club was owned by a group of St. Thomas businessmen who purchased the approximately 100-acre parcel sold for $1,250 in 1937.
