Hello everyone and happy Saturday! I just wanted to give you all a super quick update on the current ferry situation…
- The new non-resident rate for the passenger ferry is now $8.15 one way. This increase began on January 25th and will continue for one year.
- Beginning Thursday, February 8th, ferry services will run until 10 p.m. daily. This will occur both from Red Hook and Cruz Bay.
- We are still down to only two car barges. This means that if one goes down for maintenance or repairs, then we only have one barge to ferry vehicles between St. John and St. Thomas. If you are planning to visit St. John anytime soon, I implore you to rent your vehicle on St. John. This will free up additional space for vehicles who need to use the barges daily – construction trucks, garbage trucks, food delivery trucks, vehicles that travel between the islands for work or healthcare, etc. All of our car rental agencies on St. John are open for business. Please rent your vehicle on St. John and use the passenger ferry, which runs hourly.
