You can select the option to have our boat pick you up as part of your excursion from one of several locations in Cruz Bay.

 

From St. John

By car (drive to Cruz Bay and park in town or in the Public Enighed Pond Parking lot) and walk to the meeting pickup point for the boat as selected in the option: either the Beach by the Passenger Ferry Beach or the Dock, the beach near Gallows Pointand Grand Bay, or at The National Park near the Visitor Center.

By foot hiking: hike the popular one mile Lind Point Trail from the National Park Visitor Center in Cruz Bay or hike the 5-10 minute steep trail from the Top Of Lind Point Hill parking lot.


From St. Thomas

Take the ferry, which departs from Red Hook (the eastern most point of St. Thomas) every hour on the hour in both directions—$7 per person each way. The ferry is a 15 minute scenic and enjoyable ride. Once you arrive, you will see the boat waiting for you o nether beach directly next to the ferry terminal.
Or, bring your car on the barge which mostly leaves every 30 minutes and costs $50 round trip. This is a better deal than the passenger ferry if you have 4 or more people as it gives you flexibility without needing a taxi service once you are on St. John. You will find the car barge to the left of the people passenger ferry on St. Thomas in Red Hook. The last car barge departs St. John at 6:15pm to return to St. Thomas by 6:45 pm.
