Very orderly. It got stuffy when embarking and disembarking. We were very glad to see these new sights.

Reservations! Ha! Get there at least one hour in advance and try to get one of the large boats not the small one that they pack you in like a sardine!

We took this taxi from Road Town to St. Thomas to catch our flight home. The process was easy, they handled the bags, the taxi was clean, and they dropped you right at customs which was also easy. I'd recommend this again, especially on your...More

Checking in is a rush yet they take forever to leave the dock and when you get to Road Town all the luggage has to come off before you get to stand in a long queue to enter the coutry.

This is a quick way to get between the USVI and the BVI. Friendly and helpful staff. The boats a daily ferries and not fancy. The the trip was quick and easy

Did not disappoint. On time, very comfortable and reasonable on pricing. Have taken this ferry many times to/from STT and BVIs. . . only issue is always clearing customs on the BVI side but this is not the ferry's fault. Highly recommend.

You do customs when you leave the boat. If you get off at Tortola, do it there. If you stay onto virgin gorda, will do it there.

It can be close. The ferry should take 45-50 minutes. Then they have to unload all the luggage before you can get off. That took 15 minutes the day we took it. Then you have to clear customs which is another 10 minutes... More
