Schedules

A:

  • Check the schedule that lists your route.
  • Check what day you are travelling. Some ferries only run on certain days of the week.
  • Look at the times to see which is most convenient.

A: You can either take a private water taxi (please note private water taxis only run whilst customs and immigration in the BVI remains open). Alternatively, make arrangements to stay overnight on St Thomas and then catch the ferry across the next day.

A: Some ferries travel direct, some will travel via another dock or island (the schedules indicate which). Allow additional time if the ferry does not travel direct.

A: If you are flying into St Thomas (STT), it will be quicker to take a taxi from the airport to the ferry dock at Charlotte Amalie (10 mins). The journey to Red Hook usually takes 25 mins but can take considerably longer in rush hour.

    Leaving a spare key under the doormat or on top of a doorframe is never a good idea. A dedicated lock box for your spare keys allows you to provide entry to others when you’re not around—like dog walkers, Airbnb guests, or cleaning workers. They typically use some kind of combination lock to keep yo...

    This padlock-style lock box from Master Lock is designed to latch directly over your door knob or handle, making it ideal for those with frequent houseguests or rental tenants.. Constructed of rust-resistant steel, this lock box can be used for both indoor and outdoor use, and thanks to the pre-drilled holes on the rear of the unit, is designed to be mounted directly to the wall.. The optional rubber cover helps to disguise the lock box itself, and though it provides some protection against the weather, shouldn’t be relied on as any kind of security protection.. Although it's not technically a lock box, this magnetic key hider and its low price could be a great choice for those who don’t require a locking mechanism.. It doesn’t have the capacity of other boxes that can fit up to five keys, but if you only need to store one or two, this box should have you covered.. This box uses a key lock, which may not be convenient for those who would prefer a combination lock that anyone could access at any time.. This dial makes it a great choice for those who plan on using the box frequently—like for kids coming home from school every day—since the correct combination won’t fade over time like push-button lock boxes.. They typically use some kind of combination lock to keep your keys secured inside, and you can easily change that combination whenever you like—adding even more security, and much cheaper than changing the door locks themselves..
