Well folks, we have more great news to share with you all today! There’s a new way to get to St. Thomas, specifically to the airport.
You may recall in our pre-storm world that a new ferry was set to begin shuttling people between Cruz Bay and Crown Bay Marina on St. Thomas. Unfortunately it didn’t last very long, but today we’re happy to tell you that this is now operating on a daily basis. Such great news!
The Crown Bay Marina is located just five minutes from the airport. That means that people can forgo the long taxi ride to the regular Red Hook ferry if they prefer to go that route.
The new ferry, operated by Inter Island Boat Services, leaves Crown Bay daily at 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. It leaves Cruz Bay daily at 11 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. This ferry does not leave where the regular ferries leave. The Inter Island ferry leaves from the Creek, which is beside the old customs’ building and the Virgin Islands Visitor Center. It’s the ferry that has the yellow sun-like image on it.
The cost of this new ferry is $20 per person. Bags cost $5. The trip takes roughly 35 minutes. And once you arrive at Crown Bay, you can expect to pay about $5 for the five-minute taxi ride to the airport.
Please call 340-776-6597 or 340-201-6311 for more information or to reserve our spot.
Inter Island Boat Services is hoping to restore ferry service between Cruz Bay and the British Virgin Islands soon, they said. We will have more details on that when we hear more.
That’s all we have for you today. “News” you can use! Have a great Monday everyone!
