“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.

“Nice quick ride for a great price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The VI ferry from Red Hook on St. Thomas to Cruz Bay on St. John was easy to book, cheap at $6 per person, and a nice ride. In just 20 minutes or so, we'd already arrived. Riding on the upper deck was great so, If anything, we found ourselves wishing it had taken longer!
