Buck Island - cheapest way to just get there

OK, so this is a return trip for us. We love Buck Island but don't have a lot of interest in snorkeling or beach parties or anything. I kow you have to be licensed to anchor there, but what would be the absolute cheapest way to get out there with no concern for amenities?

Also - if you have a boat or a "friend with a boat" - are you allowed to go out there yourself?

Thanks,

Day Trip Dragon

Private boats can go there anytime but cannot charge people.

Hmmmm... anyone know a "guy with a boat" with whom I could become friends. I've been known to be generous to my friends for no specific reason.

OK.... second cheapest way! :-)

Seriously - anyone have or know someone with a boat? I'd be interested in being their "friend" for a day.
