The ferry service is often disussed here espcially how unreliable it has been . But for the last year it has actually been very relible with very frequent service , it has been so good I had started to use it quite frequently .
All of that is about to end, and although it was reported in the press that the contract with the private operator had been extended it appears that is not the case. Today on the boats, it was announced that they would be ceasing service before the end of May because there is no contract. They will be back to trying to run a schedule with only a few of the port autority boats even in service. I have only seen two ports authority boats the rest are in dry dock or moored somewhere.
Expect long delays and cancelled or combined trips with Culebra which will increase travel time for some to several hours.
