To St John via St Thomas Airport

Since St. John doesn't have an airport, our island remains small and quiet. St. John visitors fly into St. Thomas' Cyril E. King Airport (STT) on major airlines including Delta, American, Continental, United, Spirit Air, JetBlue, and US Airways. Many major cities offer direct air access to St. Thomas, such as New York, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami, and Ft. Lauderdale. Also, with Puerto Rico just a twenty minute flight away, direct flights from this popular Caribbean hub offers even more flight opportunities.

From St. Thomas Airport to St. Thomas Red Hook Ferry

It's an easy taxi ride from the airport (STT) to the Red Hook ferry dock, normally 25 - 40 minutes. There are normally others traveling to Red Hook with their final destination St John as well. Taxi fares normally run $15 per person plus baggage fees.

From Red Hook Ferry Dock to Cruz Bay Ferry Dock

The Red Hook ferry to Cruz Bay St John leaves every hour on the hour from 6:00 a.m. until midnight during high season and takes about 20 minutes. The cost of the ferry is currently $6 per person, plus $2 per large bag (small purses and backpacks that remain with you are free). Purchase tickets inside the Ferry terminal at the St. John Ferry desk.

St John Rental Cars and Other Transportation

Once you are on St John, you have numerous transportation options. Taxis can take you anywhere you want to go, and there is also regular public bus transportation round trip from the Cruz Bay Ferry Dock to Coral Bay.

But the best way to experience the pristine beaches of the National Park and other sites on St. John is by car or Jeep rental for at least part of your stay. We recommend your making rental reservations in advance, due the popularity of sightseeing around the island. We also recommend your renting a car on St John, so that if you have any problems, the rental agency is nearby to assist you. St. John Adventures at Gallows Point Gourmet is happy to book your rental car at no additional cost to you. Just remember, we drive on the left!

Passports

No passports are needed for US Citizens to enter the US Virgin Islands. But you will need your passport of you plan to visit the British Virgin Islands, even if for a day trip (which is highly recommended!)

Language and Currency

English and US Dollars are used in the US and British Virgin Islands. There is one ATM machine at the bank in Cruz Bay, and one at The Marketplace, just a short distance from the Resort.

Time

Please note that the Virgin Islands does not participate in Daylight Savings Time. Thus in the summer months St. John is the same time as Eastern Daylight Time, and during the winter months St John is one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time.

Cell phones and Internet

ATT and Sprint are the main cell phone carriers and generally honor rates and calling plans just like calling from state to state. Other cell phone providers most likely work, but will incur roaming charges. Internet access is offered in the lobby and WiFi access is available across the property. There are also numerous Internet cafes located in Cruz Bay.
