Native Son, Inc. is a trusted name in ferry transport throughout both the U.S. Virgin Islands as well as her British sisters. In fact, you can make your way from one island chain to the next on a daily basis aboard one of this company's ferries.

Native Son, Inc. offers transportation between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook on St. Thomas as well as Road Town and West End on Tortola. They remain in operation every day of the year, except in the event of severe weather, and are extremely dependable. This is evident in the fact that locals use these ferries when they have work or school on an island other than the one they live on.
