Good afternoon all! Where would I find the most current ferry schedule Roadtown to STT on a Monday on November 1st? Are we still needing reservations? And when can we make them, if so? We're taking a private water taxi from STJ to Scrub on the way over so I'm not sure about getting back. Thanks!

The schedule has only been released until 15 October.

Most likely you will need reservations but you'll need to wait and see what they say about capacity restrictions.

lol. Such a great question.

Typically, the Port Authority publishes a monthly schedule and the the ferry companies share it but this is all on Facebook. Eventually, the ferry companies update their online booking system with their dates but it could take a few days.

For October, they never published a schedule, just added the September schedule to their FB page and said it's extended to October 15. Not very effective but it's attached in case you want to see it.

Rumors are for more ferries being added but until it is announced, canceled, announced again, and then updated I wouldn't count on it. No way there are going to be less ferries so you should be able to count on the September times.

Welcome to the islands...

We have already booked our Oct. 21 STT to RT 4:30 pm. I did call and confirm with Smiths before I booked the ferry. They said they were running that day. I am waiting to book the return ferry. I'm hoping they add a late morning ferry so we can stay out another night.

Interesting. Maybe they extended it until end of October and just never bothered to announce it.

Which ferry company sold you the tickets? If it was RTFF, that makes sense because they have Saturdays in the current schedule.

I too am waiting the RTFF November schedule to open. I called yesterday and the lady said sometime next month. Just hard to book a flight out of STT when you cannot secure a ride there...I too could be stuck in paradise.
If you see the schedule open please let me know and I will do the same LOL

After going back and forth since 1984 I now spend a night at both ends on STT, primarily at The Emerald Beach. I know if its a short vacation that may not work but longer than that I find it takes a lot of stress out of the trips..and you get to eat in Frenchtown!

What happens if you just show up at the ferry dock at STT? Have AA tickets for Dec 9 and return Dec 21 Hoping Speedy ferry is doing a STT-VG trip by that time. Was told speedy will be running in late Nov

If you just show up, you run the risk of not getting a seat. Capacity is limited due to COVID so I'd plan ahead if possible.

VG will be a vaccinated port of entry by then so it might be worth the extra cost to use a water taxi to take you directly to VG.

I have blocked a boat for 27 Nov to 5 Dec. We are waiting to book tickets for the 27 Nov ferry schedule. The preferred flight gets in at 4 PM. Being a Saturday they normally run a late ferry but it sure would be nice to see a schedule.

Why the heck can't they put out a schedule later than 2 weeks out? Have any of the ferries changed days since they've started running?
I'm scheduled to fly down on 10/22.

Yes, August was different companies than July. September went from 2 to 1 boat. October seems to be the same as September so far but we all think October 15 will be the return of 2 daily boats.

I called one of the ferry companies last week and was told that in Nov they expect the outbound STT to RT to move from a 4:30 depart to a 5:45 departure. Perhaps that is why they only have added 2 weeks to the schedule. The same company also indicated that all the boat companies have asked for additional runs so perhaps mid Nov they may go back to more ferries running a day. I guess all we can do is stay tuned and wait. Kind of silly that they cannot get things finalized more than a few weeks ahead....its frustrating!

I would take it, but I have a higher risk tolerance than most. Should put you at the airport by 1pm with only 65 people on the ferry.

Every time I attempt a water taxi, the cost of very high. I can take the ferry system at much lower cost. If you have any water taxi's that you can recommend I will try again.

That won't work for the folks that want to go to Virgin Gorda. Why can't BVI ever get their act together. Not so difficult

There's a 4:30, 6:30, and 9:00 boat from Beef Island. For travel to VG, it would be better to fly to EIS than STT.

Years ago we swore that if at all financially possible we would only fly into EIS and never take the ferry again...LOL! Well, then we bought a condo on St. Thomas and now we are back to looking at transportation from St. Thomas to Tortola. I just booked a water taxi with Chill Out Charters from St. Thomas to Tortola for $900 for 6 people ($150 per person). Return trip is $840 because they give a discount for the return. They pick you up in Red Hook (so if flying in you will have to take a taxi to Red Hook, which is usually about $20 per person) but then take you right to West End to clear in and do the Covid stuff, then they will take us to our boat at the Moorings. For an additional $35 per person they will pick you up at Crown Bay Marina in Charlotte Amalie instead of Red Hook.

We've decided to just do the private water taxi both ways... yep it's expensive for sure, but this is our 60th birthday trip ( cancelled 3 different times ) from May 2020 and decided...what the heck, we're just doing it

We bit the bullet too on the private water taxi. After having issues with a flight from SJU to EIS. No times matched our incoming flight. This was supposed to be my 60th BD trip. I turned 60 in March. Husband is paralyzed on one side, he is mobile but just not for long distances. So we got the private water taxi. Very expensive but as you said we just did it!!!

I was able to book STT to Road Town for Nov. 12th with Native Son. I have not been able to find tickets for Sunday Nov.21 return trip. Anyone know which ferry is running this Sunday?

Those thinking about a private water taxi might recheck airfares direct to EIS. American just dropped fares significantly to Tortola. I paid 630 roundtrip from CLT to EIS next month. No ferries, portals and only clear customs once!

UGH! I just checked and ours would be $240 one way from Denver to EIS. Unfortunately, I've already booked the water taxi and we are traveling with 1/2 our crew and meeting the other half in St. Thomas. Thanks for the heads up though!

I be cautious pre-booking ferries for dates not officially released yet. The operator you choose may or may not know they are operating on that date but you could end up on the 9am ferry instead of the 11am ferry that you really wanted.

I’ve some friends who are arriving STt on Friday. It’s their anniversary and they’re heading to Tortola. How hold I advise them about the public ferries? “Forget about it” or “be patience” or something else?
