St Croix To St John Day trip March 13, 2021
Oh happy day…someone finally heard our pleas to run a ferry directly from St. Croix to St. John! Many of us who live on St. Croix love to visit St. John for a quick getaway on what is known here in the US Virgin Islands as the ‘Nature Island’. Until now, to get there you would require a ferry ride or flight to St. Thomas followed by a ferry ride from St. Thomas to St. John. Native Son Ferry recognized the demand for a direct ferry and operated a trial run on February 13, 2021, and I took full advantage by grabbing my husband and a friend and hopping aboard. The ferry departed from Gallows Bay on St. Croix at 8:00am to make the 90 minute crossing to Cruz Bay, and left Cruz Bay at 5:00pm to make the return trip. It turned out that the ferry offered the perfect amount of time to enjoy a full day on St. John.
