transportation to Virgin Gorda from St. John

My family will be camping on St. John for a couple of days before going to Little Dix. What would be the best way to get from St. John to Virgin Gorda. It looks like there is only one ferry that does that route, and it doesn't go on the day we need to travel.

any suggestions?

many thanks,


Toronto, Canada

If the STT to VG ferry is not running the day you want to leave you have only two choices (ferry wise) 1) take a water taxi or 2) go back to charlotte amalie and take a ferry to Tortola then on to VG. cheers

If you're camping at Cinnamon Bay, then you might be able to arrange a ferry for free to Little Dix through Caneel Bay Resort. I believe that the same company owns the campground and both resorts, so they might have a ferry for you that day. Just call the concierge at Caneel Bay. Good Luck!

Another option if taking the ferry route is to ferry from Cruz Bay to West End, Tortola. You’ll then need to take a taxi (20 mins) to Road Town where you can catch a ferry from there over to Virgin Gorda.

You might try asking Little Dix for some help with this. They can probably make a suggestion or help you with any special arrangements if necessary. They have been known to go out of their way to get you to their property.

The Caneel/Little Dix trip is done each Mon/Wed/Friday if I remember correctly. Definitly call Little Dix - I would call the resort, not an 800-number, and inquire. Am sure they will be helpful.

The Thursday and Sunday ferry that goes directly to Virgin Gorda leaves St. John at 8:30.
