Car Ferry - Barge Information
Round trip with car is around $50, including passengers. There are three different companies with ferries, all leaving from the same location, with different schedules. One runs every half hour from 6:30 am to 6:30 PM from Red Hook. The other two ferries run on the hour. The car ferry runs daily, 7 days a week. Weekends skip the first morning run each way.
The last barge ferry to St John is 6 PM so make sure you have plenty of time to wait for your luggage, get your car and make the barge.
 Please note times and prices can change.

If you feel comfortable with driving on the left and backing onto the barge, you can also pick up a rental car at the airport on St. Thomas and  drive to the car ferry ("the barge") in Red Hook. Not all rental companies allow their cars to go to St John. The Budget Car rental does, and is located at the airport.
