Cruz Bay to Crown Bay Ferry

Postby Sumerwaters » Sat May 27, 2017 3:44 pm

Has anyone used the new Cruz Bay to Crown Bay ferry?
I was looking for an "official" schedule for this ferry.

I was guessing it would take around 45 minutes.
That would be perfect timing to get a bite at Tickles and then taxi to the airport.

Are taxis available at Crown Bay or would I need to call?

This ferry has been cancelled. I heard it was because of complaints from the other ferry operators.

There's a FB page called "St. John Car Barge Schedule" and there was a bit of discussion about it there. People said that it was cancelled by the Port Authority and that other ferry companies complained about the competition.

During our recent stay on STJ, we noticed a new ferry making frequent runs between the USVI & the BVI. It was not Native Son (white & green hull), Smith's (blue & white), Roadtown FF (Jamaican flag), nor the Mona Queen (grey & white).

This one was same hull style as the NS Express, only painted white, with yellow trim lengthwise. I vaguely recall it being marked "Caribbean Dream" ... or something like that.

Perhaps this is the ferry that was intended to run b/w Crown Bay & STJ?

Just wondering.
