Traveling between St. Thomas and St. John is possible with your car! A car ferry, or car barge, takes cars between St. Thomas and St. John! The driver and passengers ride along with the vehicle too. Three companies currently offer daily service between Enighed Pond, St. John and Red Hook, St. Thomas for vehicles.  

A few things to note: first a port fee is collected by the VI government at a designated booth just before entering the car barge loading area in Red Hook, St. Thomas. It $3 per car, small SUV, motorcycle; and $4 per truck, van, large SUV. This port fee has nothing to do the with the fare for taking the car barge, which is completely separate. The fare for the car barge is paid once on the actual barge. Second, the Red Hook ferry location services both passenger ferries and the car ferries but there are two separate docking areas for each, with separate well marked entrances. And, it’s a good idea to arrive at least 45 minutes before the car barge departure time you hope to catch. Read more about taking the Car Barge
