Couple of questions.....

1. - Is the customs and Immigration facility for yacht clearance up and running on St John...?
2. - Are Home Depot and Price Smart up and running to capacity on St Thomas....?

Thanks...


Safe and enjoyable boating.

St John customs has no roof. They are not open. Home Depot is partially open. Supposed to be completely reopening soon. Price Smart is wide open.

Where are boats returning from BVI clearing into US? CA?

Any idea of when St John's customs will reopen?

They are clearing at the Ferry Terminal in Town. It will be a while before St John reopens. The building appears to be a total loss. It is further complicated by the fact that the Virgin Islands Port Authority owns the building and leases it to customs.

Price Smart is wide open.

The term "wide open" can have multiple meanings post Irma. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

As of yesterday, AT&T has mobile service in Coral Bay. Restaurants also have electricity and some house as well.

Cheers, RickG
