Ferry Boat Information

Arriving guests will need to take a ferry boat from St. Thomas to St. John.  The two primary ways for guests to travel between STJ and STT are the passenger ferry and, if guests rent their vehicle in St. Thomas, the car barge.  Passenger ferries and car barges are boarded on a first-come-first-served basis.  A one-way or round-trip ticket can be purchased upon arrival.  Below is complete ferry boat information needed by arriving and departing guests.

PASSENGER FERRY: There are two passenger ferry locations to choose from – Crown Bay or Red Hook. The Crown Bay ferry runs three times per day but can be subject to unannounced cancellations, so we recommend guests plan to take the Red Hook ferry which departs St. Thomas every hour on the hour between 6am and midnight.

CAR BARGE: Car barge departure times can vary depending on capacity & how many barges are in operation on a given day, so it is particularly important to note car barge times based on flight arrival/departure schedules.  If arriving guests have rented their vehicle on St. Thomas and do not arrive in Red Hook in time for the last car barge (7:00 pm) to St. John, they must leave their rental car in the paid parking lot at Red Hook, take the passenger ferry to St. John that evening, and return to St. Thomas the following day to catch a car barge to St. John.  Be advised that, on the day of guests’ departure, delays in car barge schedules may not allow enough time to arrive at the airport for flight check-in, therefore we STRONGLY recommend renting vehicles on St. John!
