Are the water taxi services now allowed to enter BVI via sea? I've been trying to get an answer from Dolphin and Island Times, but not getting a clear response. If the sea port of entry is not yet open to them, or any other private vessels, at this point, is there a estimated date when it will open up?
Thanks,
Husker, out.

Not allowed yet. One of them, probably Dolphin, has a fly-in, water taxi out deal.

There may be some changes around June 1. Currently the answer is no.

We're booking a trip late July. I looked at the various options since we want to avoid the larger ferry and it is cheaper to just fly through San Juan and take intercaribbean airlines to tortola. Dolphin was $500 round trip per person.

we take IC when we don't take a private charter from SJU to EIS and have had no issues...having said that it appear they are cancelling flights recently so make sure you keep up with them

Hi Matt - For us it turned out flying into EIS was hundreds more per person than STT + Water Taxi. For our group of 7 the Island Times Water Taxi cost is about $250pp round trip (including the taxi from STT to Red Hook).

Another option people sometimes forget is Southwest to SJU (doesn't appear on Google flights) and Cape Air. Buy the coupons and it is $200/ticket.

I wasn't aware of the Cape Air coupon deal. Thanks.
