We were at the fueling up for a day sail at the dock near the National Park office yesterday morning and this BEAUTIFUL boat rolled in!!!
First, from a distance, I first assumed it was the Tortola ferry coming into the international dock. Then, as it pulled into the creek, I assumed because it said “St. Thomas VI” on the stern that the downtown ferry was FINALLY back in service. But, unable to go over and immediately check it out myself, I dove into Facebook land and, low and behold, this stunning and brand new ferry is operating service between Cruz Bay and Red Hook!
I have contacted the ferry companies and will swing by the dock this weekend to find out more details as to adjusted schedules, updates to the downtown service, etc. But, I was so excited about spotting this new vessel that I wanted to share the pics with you all this morning!
Just a gentle reminder…masks are still required on all public transportation and in all public spaces on St. John. That includes the ferry…So, mask up and enjoy the new ride!

Hold up…..the comment about the downtown ferry has me worried. The Crown Bay to Cruz Bay ferry IS running. Correct? Website let me buy 4 tickets for this Saturday.
They really need to let up on the masks. It’s ridiculous.
Doesn’t look like there is an exposed upper deck. The ride from Red Hook on the deck is a must!
Is the ferry operational between Road town and Red Hook?
Hello, this ferry is not a St. John ferry it’s from Tortola and registers in St. Thomas. Doing charters and daily trips between Tortola and St. Thomas.
