Hi Everyone - just wondering about car ferries from St. Thomas to St. John...how many are in operation these days? What's the time wait? My family is coming in August and thinking about renting cars in St. Thomas...any info greatly appreciated. :D

There have usually been 2 running, including the newest biggest Grand Vic put into service a day or two after Thanksgiving. We took the car barge over on Sunday Dec. 2nd and back on Sunday Dec. 16th without any issues or extended wait. Grand Vic was out of service for a few days last week for an issue with the gate, but is back in service. I found it helpful to keep an eye on the FB link below for real time updates (usually from locals). Also, I highly recommend renting from Amy at Amalie Car Rental. Awesome team, great new jeeps and in my opinion the best out there.
