Ouch, that's a tough one! I have been 6 out of the last 8 years, and I have never used a ferry. The reason? Most of them are booked a year in advance and they don't give me enough time on Jost. I have gone by private boat and by charter, but never a ferry. Which island will you be leaving from? That will help determine how we recommend your itinerary.

Would you share the names of the charter services you have used?

I went on Jimmy Loveland's boat "Spirit" and had a great time. http://www.treasureislecruises.com/index.html And have used "See & Ski a couple times http://www.seeski.com/

Not sure what the ideal from STJ would be. Maybe ferry over to STT from STJ to board? Maybe they might pick you up? Worth a look.

Approximately 1/2 an hour with S&S, about 2 hours sailing from sanctuary.
