“Good experience traveling from St. Thomas to St. John. Bought the round-trip tickets online via the website. Read all the instructions. We departed at 8:30AM. Went there and lined up at 8AM. Had to pay port ticket of $3. You back up into the ferry. The ride is about 30 minutes. We came back in same fashion. Very professional crew. Got the job done.”
