best island for excursions

we are researching STJ or STT for a week next winter. Which island is more convenient for day excursions to other islands like BVI?

Nautical Nymph (sp) out of Red Hook offers boats for rent or tours. My brother and I rented a boat there a few years back and island hopped for the day. We went to Jos Van Dyke and enjoyed it. If you're going later in the year, you should consider subscribing to starfishdeals.com. They're like living social/groupons & you may find a deal. Who isn't happy saving a few dollars. Oh, btw, we spent around $500 renting the boat ourselves. We had to pay for the fuel on the return. Expensive, but we knew where we were going and are lovers of the sea, so it was well worth it.

Hope you have fun!

If you want to do the trips by ferry, here is the schedule. You can look at the ferry schedules and you can decide which one works best.

Both STT and STJ are convenient for BVI day trips, so that really shouldn't be a consideration in your decision. I would base my choice on what I want from my vacation.

There are many ways to island hop. You can go to Jost via ferry (as Saffie mentioned), you can do a private day charter on a motorboat (6 pp max, approximately $700 including gas), or you can do a tour that stops at multiple places.
