Hello everyone! If I’m posting on a Friday night, you know it’s got to be good!
I am super excited to tell you all that ferry service is set to resume to Virgin Gorda next month. How exciting is that?!
Inter Islands Boat Services plans to start weekly ferry service from St. John (and also from St. Thomas) to Virgin Gorda beginning on Thursday, March 2nd. The ferry will depart Red Hook every Thursday at 7 a.m. and will then depart Cruz Bay at 7:30 a.m. It will then depart Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda at 3:45 p.m. The cost will be $150 roundtrip, plus $30 tax.
Inter Islands Boat Services also offers ferry service to Jost Van Dyke every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. Those ferries leave Red Hook at 7 a.m. and Cruz Bay at 8 a.m. It departs Great Harbor on Jost Van Dyke at 3:30 p.m. The cost of that trip is $120 roundtrip.
As of now (February 2023), this is the only ferry service between St. John and the British Virgin Islands. There is daily ferry service to Tortola from St. Thomas. A passport is needed in order to take the ferry to the British Virgin Islands.
