Save time — Now that you're landing in St. Thomas, your charter boat is only one short cab ride away. Don't head over to the BVI where you'll need a cab to the ferry, a ferry to the BVI and another cab to your charter base. That can take a few hours.
Avoid ground transportation charges – The ferry is $50 per head round trip and the second cab ride is at least $10-20 more. Extra ground transportation costs are avoided when you start your charter in St. Thomas.
Enjoy the north side of St. John — I think it offers the best anchorages in all of the Virgin Islands. Excellent snorkeling can be found in Leinster Bay, perfect swimming conditions await you in Cinnamon Bay, and gorgeous beaches and challenging hikes in Caneel Bay are just a few of the treats in the Virgin Islands National Park.
The nightlife – Red Hook, St. Thomas, and Cruz Bay, St. John, provide dozens of options for good food, live music, and dancing and all can be reached on the first day of your charter.
