Trudi:
Put in a time for a departure from Virgin Gorda. Also does it go back to Virgin Gorda, if there are passengers?

Hi Thorsten
Departure times from Virgin Gorda are found on the Virgin Gorda to Anegada schedule. The ferry only returns to Virgin Gorda if there are passengers on the afternoon run, see Anegada to Virgin Gorda schedule.

On the native son ferry leaving CA on Saturdays at 14:30, the asterik indicates it "travels via red hook"....assume this means it stops at red hook before going on to West End? If that's the case, is it better to just wait for the 15:30 ferry that goes direct to WE?

Ohhhhhhh yesss. How astute of you to notice. Most especially the Friday 14:30 stopping at Red Hook. It will stop there and about 30 people will board.. along with 500 cubic yards of toilet paper, Wheaties, tires, cases of drinks, massive bundles of styrofoam plates... and all that will be unloaded at West End Customs.. on top of all the bags of the other passengers.
You haven't a prayer of finding your bags under that pile if you are able to blaze a path through it. It was a tedious and very long process after a very cramped ferry ride.

There's not a lot in it, assuming the 3:30pm runs. Sometimes it's cancelled or "delayed" and can be merged with the 4:30/5:00pm ferry. Suggest making your way to the ferry dock and taking the ferry which is leaving next.

thanks for the replies. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that doesn't happen. We're landing in STT just before 1 pm and will already be hanging around for the 3:30. Moglet, even with BillH's post, we should still take whatever ferry is leaving next?

IMHO, yes. I always think it's better to be on your way than to sit at the ferry dock (albeit at The Petite Pump Room) and wonder when the next ferry will leave. Ferries can be delayed at short notice so if there's one leaving that's going your way, then I would take it.

Yay, now I'm going to add Anegada to my itinerary! About how long is the ferry ride from VG to Anegada?
