St. John to Tortola

Hi, has anyone made this transfer- directly from St. John? We would love to not have to go back over to St. Thomas to get a ferry.

Also, about how long does it take?

We are headed to Peter Island and need to get to Tortola first, to catch the PI ferry...

We've gone to Tortola from STJ by chartered boats. If you're just looking to hitch a ride there verses go on a yachting excursion, I'm sure you could find a private water taxi service to get you there. I would say it took us about 45 minutes by power boat.

I have taken the ferry (2002) directly from Cruz Bay STJ to West End Tortola.

Here is a link to the ferry schedule. As you can see there is a ferry from Cruz Bay to Tortola and it takes 30 minutes.
