The only way to make a 2:30 flight via ferry is to catch the 7AM out of Roadtown unless that new startup company is operating. The 7AM. Is going to be tough to make from VG. Probably the cheapest option is ferry over the day prior and stay at Emerald Beach.

I second George. Andy came home last Thursday, did the 11:30 RTFF from Roadtown. He hit everything right, Ferry on time, got a cab immediately after getting off, she hit EVERY light green, and still was inside at 2:30, 3 hours. That was with no checked luggage, walk-on-walk-off. Speedy's leaves VG for RT at 7:00, so that kills hitting the 7:00 RT ferry.

Why not take the 6AM Speedy's from VG to Trellis and then cab over and take the 7:30 Smiths?
We did this on our last trip and made our 2PM flight with time for breakfast in CA. So easy!
Unless something has changed??? But I am still seeing all those times listed.....

Hi TP - be sure to check the Sunday schedule and call to see if anything is actually running. I ran into this about 5 weeks ago and nothing was running from VG - water taxis did not want to make the long run, and charter flights were not an option as I did not plan far enough in advance. No ferries on Sunday from VG (at least that's what is was then). We actually did a Saturday ferry to RT and Jason and Tiffany took great care of us staying at Coconut Breeze Villas in Cane Garden Bay - made the Roadtown/STT trip on Sunday fine. I've done land based VG many times (including your place) and probably never left on a Sunday as I was caught out with no options.

Yes-hard to get to Roadtown on a Sunday but Speedys still runs to Trellis. Just grab a cab to Roadtown and be on your way.
As I mentioned above, 6AM to Trellis, 7:30 to STT with plenty of time to catch flight.

Thanks, but why doe s ferry schedule to/from the BVI have to be so difficult. I took a look at many web sites. They had ferries form 5 years ago. There should be a singel point of information on ferries in an easy to read and understand format.

tpcook, skipdastraw gave you the easiest and least expensive option.

This is the best (and really only) option.

Arrange your taxi from Trellis to Road Town ahead of time would be my recommendation.

Here is a link to the website with updated BVI and BVI -> USVI Ferry Times https://bestofbvi.com/bvi-ferry-schedules/
