OK I might be crazy but trying to plan a last minute college graduation trip for my son and need to let his friends know what the cost would be. We typically fly into EIS and haven't done the ferry from St. Thomas in years but since ferries should be back up on April 15 and we wouldn't go until May I am considering this alternative to keep the costs down. Can anyone give me an idea of the total cost to ferry into EIS. I know the ferry costs $60 but are their entry fees in addition to the ferry cost when going through customs/immigration? What about departure?

$20 departure tax for sure. There is also a $10 Environment/Tourism fee that is paid on arrival.

Don't forget the $175 testing/tracker fee plus $70 testing fee prior to departure if your destination country requires it. Taxi fares on Day 0 plus roundtrip on Day 4 all depend on where you are staying.

Thanks Jason! I'm trying to figure out why Dolphin Taxi charges $105 in Customs fees and kind of remember hearing about a customs charge when coming in from US waters pre-COVID. Maybe this was not for ferries but for day boats?

I'm sure they can give you a breakdown but I'm sure private vessels pay a different set of fees. There are lots of fees for day boaters.

Don't forget the Covid test and travel portal needed to land in STT for arrival and you will have to have Covid test and portal acceptance again to enter USVI if you take the ferry to STT on departure.

I think someone could make some great money running a concierge service for entry, testing while there, and exit of BVI. At the least text/email alerts with links to all the portals and answering questions.
