Subject: Ferry From Charlotte Amalie Direct to Virgin Gorda

Dear Sir or Madam:

I understand that you’re not currently running this non-stop ferry route from Charlotte Amalie direct to Virgin Gorda, but do you plan to reinstate it for late November or early December? I know that such things are difficult to predict with any degree of certainty, but I’d appreciate any guidance you can give me, even of a general sort. Thank you.

Hello Michael,

We have exciting news, we plan on resuming our St. Thomas trips within a month. I am not sure of the exact date and times as of right now. I would advise you to follow all of the social media pages to keep up to date as to when we will be resuming our STT trips and any updates about our ferry services.

Thorsten, the reply read in part "we plan on resuming our St. Thomas trips within a month." Although the response equivocated on the exact date and timetable, it seems to me that it's a safe bet that you'll be all set by the end of November.

Was it Tues Thur Saturday they ran those ferries? I wonder if they will keep that schedule or change days. I hesitate to book our water taxis if they might be able to go by ferry. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

UPDATE: It appears that the schedule has slipped and the company is hoping for a November reinstitution of the service:

Dear Sir or Madam, following up on our prior email correspondence, I did a quick check of your current schedule to see if this route was now back in service, but I don’t see anything. Can you advise of the current plan to initiate it, and the likely schedule? Thank you. MAF

Sounds like external forces are the problem. Like a government approval for the boat??

Yep, probably. Has to be reviewed and approved by all the government functionaries, including the Chief Assistant to the Assistant Chief....

Hello Michael,

At the moment, we plan on resuming our St. Thomas trips hopefully by January. Not sure of the exact dates and times as of right now. I would advise you to follow all of the social media pages to keep up to date as to when we will be resuming our STT trips and any updates about our ferry services.

Speedy's Website: www.bviferries.com
Facebook Page: Virgin Gorda Transport

For now my advice would be to take either Native Son or Road Town Fast Ferry into Road Town Tortola. Once you arrive on Tortola you can then connect with our ferry from Road Town to Virgin Gorda. I will attach both the ferry services contact number and email address along with our ferry schedule.

Native Son BVI Number: (284) 496-7525
Native Son USVI Number: (340) 774-8685
Email:sales@nativesonferry.com

Road Town Fast Ferry BVI Number : (284) 494-2323
Road Town Fast Ferry USVI Number: (340)7 77-2800
Email: info@roadtownfastferry.com

Hope this information is helpful in planning your trip to paradise!

Regards,
Speedy's

We are trying to figure out how to get to VG in March. I so wish this was resolved. I haven't booked flights yet (to STT) and am debating a flight, although it is so much more expensive.
