Ferries to Spanish Town

Traveling around the Virgin Islands is near impossible without utilizing at least one ferry service

Instead of flying to the Virgin Gorda Airport from St. Thomas, you also have the option of taking a ferry directly to Spanish Town. While you have the option of flying or sailing from St. Thomas, if you've flown into Beef Island, you will have no other choice but to sail.

Riding the Ferries

The North Sound Express offers several trips a day to Spanish Town from Beef Island for $22(USD) for an adult one way ticket and $40(USD) round trip. Speedy's Ferry Service is another option out of Beef Island, traveling to Spanish Town for $20(USD) per adult one way ticket and $30(USD) round trip.

If you miss the ferries on Beef Island, you can hail a cab, cross the Queen Elizabeth Bridge to Tortola, and sail to Spanish Town from Road Town. Smith's Ferry is available to sail to Spanish Town every day of the week for $30(USD) round trip, and once again, Speedy's Ferry Service offers service from this dock for the same price of a ferry from Beef Island.

Speedy's Ferry Service is also a leader in water transport from Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas to Spanish Town. Due to the longer length of the trip, adult tickets cost $40(USD) one way and $70(USD) round trip. This ferry is only available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, however, so you will have to plan accordingly.

Also from St. Thomas, only this time from the ferry dock in Red Hook, is Inter Island Boat Services. The offer ferries to Spanish Town at 8:00 a.m. on Thursdays and Sundays for $80(USD) round trip, so chances are you'll have to stay on St. Thomas overnight to make it work.
