Will be St. Thomas in early May. This will be my second trip there so I am looking forward to doing a little island hopping for snorkling/kayaking experiences. In my research, stumbled across "BioBay" in Vieques, PR. Heard about it before, but after seeing Life of Pi, and seeing I will be in USVI during a New moon phase. I am even more determined to go to vieques during my weeklong stint in St. Thomas.
Past forum research regarding this subject it was reccomended to fly. The idea of being on a small sea plane/cessna type plane is terrifying to me. I dont want to kick the bucket on the way checking something off of the bucket list :) Much rather would take a ferry instead. Even if the trip is longer - Ive got time ( 7d on STT). So I must ask - What is meant by " not dependable" Ferry service? What are they notoriously bad for doing?
Will they cancel last minute without notice EVEN if a reservation is made? Or Is it just merely late showing up. Is the ferry service seasonal ( I see it is not currently offered now)? Is their a market to entertain the idea that there may be small private charters boats that will drop me off in time for an evening kayak tour and then maybe pick me up later that evening or in the am.
Sorry to revisit a topic that I may already have found my answer to...but Thanks in advance
