Ferry to the BVI
The option of a ferry for BVI travel is particularly useful for our charter guests travelling from North America. Fly into St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands (airport code STT) and we will pick you up at airport and transport you to your yacht. If you plan on starting your charter in Tortola then you’re are just a short ferry ride to Tortola!
Travelling from Europe? Maybe you could consider a routing via a US hub into St. Thomas? We can pick you up and take you directly your charter. If you want to start your charter in the BVI then you will take a short taxi ride (don’t worry – the taxi operators will be waiting for your flight!) to one of the ferry terminals:
- Charlotte Amalie (around 10 minutes by taxi)
- Red Hook (around 30 minutes by taxi)
and then depending on your route it’s no more than a one hour ferry ride through some of the most picturesque islands in the world. As well as being a relaxing alternative to flying, the combination of the St Thomas routing and ferry will usually save travelers a lot of money when compared to direct flights to Tortola (EIS).
If you arrive late or miss your ferry there are also plenty of water taxi operators such Sea Lion water taxis. It would be best to start your charter in the USVI and avoid the ferry and the expense.
