Back in May, we told you how a man over in St. Croix was attempting to launch a new ferry service between St. Thomas and St. Croix. Well, if all goes well later this week, the new ferry service will begin by the end of the month.
Warren Mosler, a prominent businessman who ran for public office three times, has spent nearly $2 million of his own money to create the QE4, the new vessel that’s expected to begin ferrying passengers between the two islands. According to Mosler’s Facebook page, the ferry will undergo a “man overboard” scenario on March 24th as part of its Coast Guard inspection. If that goes well, ferry service will launch on March 27th.
The ferry service will run between Charlotte Amalie and Gallows Bay on St. Croix. It will leave Charlotte Amalie at 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily. It will leave St. Croix at 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily. Each trip will take approximately two hours.(We’re not certain what the cost will be.)
I’m not sure about all of you, but I think this is a very cool addition to our current ferry service. We’ll let you know when it officially starts running. In the meantime, happy Tuesday everyone!

That’s great news, thanks for posting. We haven’t been to St Croix in over 20 years and will plan an overnight trip when we are down for carnival.
ANOTHER “phantom” St. Croix ferry? Even if it does begin operation, the schedule will not work for day-trippers from St. Thomas/St. John so they’re giving up a chunk of revenue by design. We won’t use it.
What’s the # for the ferry
Great news …I own a place down there and love the idea of a ferry again
STX only get a cruise ship a week into Fstedt

Only worry is rough seas in winter
