Convenient way to get from st Thomas to St. John. In the heart of Red Hook straight into cruz bay. 7$ one way it 6$ for locals. Great value when you want a fast way off one rock to another

The terminal is well managed as is the ferry itself. The ferry left on time. Clean restrooms. Professional staff. Easy access to top deck. Will take the ferry again!

The ferry from Red Hook runs on time. $7 per person and $44 for each bag. A 20 minute ride goes quickly and runs on the hour.

Has anyone taken the Ferry from Red Hook to St. John when cruising? I will be in port 8 hours and wondering if there would be enough time to do this? How far is the Red Hook Ferry from the cruise port? I understand it's a 20 minute ferry ride to St. John from Red Hook. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The ferry runs on the hour most of the day so you could manage a quick trip. it runs more frequently early am for workers during the week. Bars and shops are easy walking distance from the port in St. John.

Sadly, there is only a ramp to get onto the ferry but that's all. The sidewalks (when present) are uneven and broken. Use caution, I hope you are able to make it work so you can experience the beauty of the island
