If you’re planning on visiting St. John for the annual Independence Day celebration and activities, bring ID.
“Together with federal law enforcement partners, Virgin Islands law enforcement agencies will stage random passenger screening for persons traveling by barge or ferry to participate in the annual Fourth of July festivities on St. John”, Governor John P. De Jongh announced. “This is for everyone’s safety.”
It's the third year for the increased security which will involve “screening on random days” at Red Hook, Cruz Bay dock, or both locations.
“Passengers are encouraged to have a form of identification on their person,” the Governor said.
