Top Answers To St. John Travel Questions

    Your final calculation might depend a little on how long you're staying and how much island-hopping you're planning on doing. Most of the public ferries for places including Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook on St. Thomas, Virgin Gorda, and Tortola depart from Cruz Bay. Round-trip fares range from $15-$20 for the short hop to St. Thomas to up to $70 if you want to sail over to BVI's Virgin Gorda for the day. The other factor you should consider is convenience, as the Westin ferry will pick you up directly from the resort instead of having to arrange transportation over to Cruz Bay (not far, mind you). There's some useful information about ferry schedules and prices at this link: http://www.vinow.com/general_usvi/interisland_ferry/. I didn't really answer your question directly but hopefully above info will help you make the right decision!

    St. John is a very easy place to get around without your own car, though you might consider a rental for a day or two to explore on your own. Otherwise, hop one of the many taxis that ply the island, an easy and fun way to get around, not to mention meet some of the locals. There are a few limited bus services, plus plenty of hiking trails through 7,000-acre Virgin Islands National Park (http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/vi_virgi.htm), which covers almost half of the island.
