The BVI Tourist Board and Film Commission (BVITB & FC) is requesting proposals from ferry companies for a late ferry-run between Red Hook on St Thomas to Road Town on Tortola. Currently visitors whose flights arrive late in the day and are unable to make the 5 PM ferry out of Red Hook must either hire a water taxi or overnight in St. Thomas.
According to the Tourist Board, “This is an untenable situation for our guests who are usually anxious to proceed to their BVI destination and avoid the costs associated with overnighting in St Thomas. As such, the BVITB & FC wish to realize a service expressly to address this situation with a view towards enticing more guests to visit the BVI in the coming years.”
The Tourist Board indicated that their goal is to establish a reliable ferry service to consistently transport guests traveling to the BVI arriving early evenings. If implemented this would be good news for those visitors whose flights arrive too late to make the last ferry.
