Ferry Service STC to STT

All of the posts concerning this topic appear to be pretty old, so I am asking…we are planning a trip to St Croix in a few months and would like to make a day trip to St. Thomas. Is the ferry operating or is it not? I find old information saying not, but nothing recent. Someone please tell me the only way to get from STC to STT is NOT a seaplane??

No ferry. You have to fly, but it doesn't have to be the seaplane. Even if the ferry was running, I wouldn't take it. It's 40 miles and wasn't nicknamed the barf-barge for no reason.

I doubt you'd find anyone willing or able to make the trip without it being extremely expensive. The two islands are separated by 40 nautical miles of deep and unpredictable water, thus the local names for the ferry when it was running (it was also called "The Vomit Comet"). The seaplane is a wonderful ride but if you prefer not to take it you can also take Cape Air which runs regular service between the two islands.

Ferries run during carnival, so there will be ferry service late April early May.

There should be ferry service again for Mango Melee in July, but that's a one day event with ferry leaving and returning to St Thomas.

The flight is worth the price. Gorgeous views and I always take photos. Flights can book up quickly if there's an event, so plan ahead!
