Red Hook ferry is always fast and easy and only $8.50 per person one way. I've been there 5 times and it's always prompt and fast. Never had a problem and there's a bar right on the ferry dock to relax with.

Get on the ferry and ride to St. John and back. $8.15 per person for non residents. The ride is lovely and on time.

We took the Red Hook to Cruz Bay ferry to St. John and back again to St. Thomas as we headed home. The people were friendly and both trips were noneventful!

The Ferry from Red Hook was so much fun. We sat outside up top and enjoyed the breeze and sun. No better way to get to St. John. It leaves every hour so no worrying about getting back and forth at a specific time.

If you are traveling to St John, you fly to St Thomas and then have to get to St John. The ferry from Red Hook to Cruz Bay is the best and most cost-efficient way to go. There are always scores of taxis at the...More

The ferry from town is not running. The biggest hint I can give you is take cash. Few people take credit on St. John. The ferry is cash as well. The ATM is close by. If you are carrying larger bags it is best to...More

The Red Hook Ferry seems to be the best way to get to St John from St. Thomas. I have taken it twice, and enjoyed the ride both times

The ferry from St. Thomas to CRUZ Bay was smooth and quick. There were 9 in our party. They handle luggage expeditiously and the crew was super friendly.

The ferry runs on the hour most of the day so you could manage a quick trip. it runs more frequently early am for workers during the week. Bars and shops are easy walking distance from the port in St. John.
