Ferry Boat Information

As St. John is a separate island in the US Virgin Islands, arriving guests will need to take a ferry boat from St. Thomas to get to St. John.  The two primary ways for guests to travel between St. John and St. Thomas are the passenger ferry and, if guests rent their vehicle in St. Thomas, the car ferry barge. A third option is a private water taxi which can be arranged in advance by contacting the CimmaronStJohn concierge team at guestservices@cimmaronstjohn.com.  Passenger ferries and car barges are boarded on a first-come-first-served basis.  Tickets must be paid for with cash and cannot be purchased in advance; however, a round trip ticket can be purchased upon arrival.  Below is complete ferry boat information needed by arriving and departing guests.

PASSENGER FERRY: There are two passenger ferry locations to choose from – Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook. The Charlotte Amalie ferry runs three times per day but can be subject to unannounced cancellations, so we recommend guests plan to take the Red Hook ferry which departs St. Thomas every hour on the hour between 6am and midnight.

CAR FERRY BARGE: Car barge departure times vary depending on how many barges are in operation on a given day, but it is very important to note car barge times based on flight arrival/departure times.  If arriving guests have rented their vehicle on St. Thomas and do not arrive in Red Hook in time to take the last car barge (7:00 pm) to St. John, they must leave their rental car in the public parking lot at Red Hook, take the passenger ferry to St. John that evening, and return to St. Thomas the following day to catch a car barge to St. John.  On the day of guests’ departure, delays in car barge schedules may not allow enough time to arrive at the airport to check in and catch their flight.
