“Unfriendly employees”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

In the 20+ yrs I've taken this ferry the ride has always been short and scenic and the employees have always been extremely rude to visitors. I get the impression they would be happy if we never came back. Considering that tourists are the reason they have a job you would think they would appreciate us being there. They appear to be on a power trip because they have some authority over us. Most of them would be good prison guards.

“Easy way to St. John”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Took the ferry from red hook to Cruz bay. They cost was $7 per person and $4 per bag. Not sure why others are claiming $6 and $2.50. Do not get a beer close to boarding, not allowed on ferry so better chug it. Trip was quick and easy and on time.

“Scenic Ride for a Great Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I know it is just a ferry, but it's a nice scenic ride to/from St John that's a quick 20 minutes, always on time, $6 price tag and feels good being on the ocean with the wind in your hair! Luggage is an extra $2.50 per bag going to St John, but coming back later in the week it was a pricey $4 per bag. Don't know if they had a price increase or what, but seemed a little outrageous. Still great transportation between the islands.

“Wind in your hair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

It's just a ferry. Like most other ferries in the world. Downstairs and inside is one thing, but upstairs and outside was great. The afternoon sun can be tough in September, but the ride is only 15 minutes or so. It's cheap - $6 one way - and runs on the hour. Some say it's one of the few things in St. Thomas/St. John that runs exactly on time. It takes you from busy St. Thomas to relaxed St. John. Worth a day's trip on your vacation.
