Where is the ferry dock in Charlotte Amalie?
Where is the ferry dock in Charlotte Amalie? I know the Red Hook one. Have taken that to St. John.
It's on the water front across from the ball park..catty cornered from the Holiday Inn!!
It is right across from the rolex shop or drakes pasage where there is a great outside bar to get a couple of beers for the ferry ride just remember it has to be in cans to bring onto the ferry
There are two ferry docks- the one near Windward Passage is for the Tortola Ferry. The one closer to Drake's Passage is the St John Ferry.
The STT -STJ ferry loads directly off the waterfront fairly close to the Vendors Plaza - it does not have a "dock" it loads right off the apron -- --- the STT - Tortola ferry is on the western end of the waterfront apron with its own building.
And if you want to see both on a map try this Google Map. They are both labeled, Point A is roughly where the St. John ferry picks up right at the waterfront apron and Point B is the Tortola Ferry Terminal.
Personally, I would take the ferry from St. Thomas to St. John from Red Hook because it has a much nicer waiting area. You can have tropical drinks and sit in an enclosed area away from the hot sun. Yes, you'll pay a bit more and spend a little more time in the taxi dropping people off but it's a much more comfortable wait for the ferry. Downtown has none of that. There's no coverage from the sun, no drinks...lol... and doesn't have that "island welcome" feeling like Red Hook. As for coming from St. John to St. Thomas, take the ferry to downtown because you're that much closer to the airport. Taxi's are on hand waiting for you and they whisk you away to the airport in no time.
I stand corrected!! (learn something new everyday) 🙂
Actually I am not going to St. John. I have taken the ferry from Red Hook to St. John but this time I am going to Tortola with luggage in tow.
Thanks, great map.
Thank you so much for the map! Has anything changed since these posts? We plan to take Smith's Ferry from Charlotte Amalie to Road Town at 3:30pm Monday. If we miss that, then we will take the 4:15 express I guess!
Still the same. Have fun!
The ferry schedule is right here on vinow, there's usually a 5pm out of Red Hook. The drivers can also help if you're not sure.
