Charlotte Amalie Ferry
Since there seems to be a number of St. John travelers on this board I thought that Id share this information. The ferry trips from Charlotte Amalie to Cruz Bay has been reduced from six to two trips per day.;p=1105688606

Yes..we found out the hard way..went to get tickets for CA and were told "due to circumstances beyond their control..the CA ferry would not be running".Luckily we got there early enough to take the Red Hook ferry and still make our flight.

Great info., Robert. Thanks. Many people consider taking the CA ferry over the Red Hook ferry to escape the unpredictability of the land travel to Red Hook. Guess the option is now very limited.

This is great news for the taxi drivers!

No direct flights to STT from EWR and now this!! Yikes!

I hate trekking out to the Red Hook Ferry!

Thanks Roberto for the valuable info!

Trish: What do you mean no direct flights from Newark? When did that happen? That was always our fall-back plan. The Red Hook trek can be a hassle, but I feel the short ferry always makes up for it.

Tux - last I checked Continental from EWR was only connecting thru San Juan to STT. That was for this fall though. I think the direct flights resume in season... They'd better!

I did the taxi to Red Hook and nearly got carsick from the twisty roads. My preference is for CA ferry.

BTW - Tux, not to hijack this thread but do you know about the Fodors GTG in NJ on Oct 22nd? It's not that far from CT...
