Travel Tips

Some might find the fact that there are no direct international flights available a little challenging.
However for most the pristine and idyllic conditions of the BVI is worth every bit.
There are three options to get to Tortola.

Option One –
Private Water Taxi

This is the easiest and most worry free option, though more expensive than the public ferry. Services include transport from Charlotte Amalie airport direct to our VOYAGE operated marina at Soper's Hole.

We recommend one of the following three providers:

  • Dohm’s Water Taxi +1 340.775-6501
  • Ocean Dreams Water Taxi +1 340.690.2979
  • Dolphin Shuttle +1 340.774.2628

Reservations are required and we
strongly suggest that you pre-arrange
in advance, especially in peak season from
November through April.

Option Two – Public Ferry

Service provider options:

Important notes:

  • Book flights to arrive before 3:30pm to make the last ferry to Tortola for your sleep aboard.
  • Book return flights from St. Thomas to depart after 2:30pm if you are flying out the same day your charter ends. This allows extra travel time.
  • Taxis are abundant outside St. Thomas airport to the Charlotte Amalie Ferry Terminal. This is a ten-minute ride so there is no need to pre-book.
  • We suggest you DO NOT pre-arrange public ferries unless you have a large group.
  • It is best not to buy round-trip tickets incase public ferries are delayed or are cancelled. Public ferry companies typically do not honor tickets purchased from other ferry companies.
  • Taxi transfers for St. Thomas and Tortola, as well as all ferry services, are not included in your charter fee.
