How to get from St. Thomas to Biras Creek?

Jump to last reply

Taking long overdue honeymoon at Biras Creek in late Jan for a week, but having trouble figuring out how to actually get there from the NYC area. We have option of flying into Tortola/EIS or St. Thomas. Latter option on average several hundred dollars cheaper per person than former option. The NY-Tortola flights are all complicated requiring ridiculously short transfers through San Juan AND multiple connections (3!) on return trips. With the way flights are nowadays and the time of year don't want to risk flight delays, missing transfers, etc.

I corresponded briefly with the resort and I get the feeling it's trying to steer me towards flying into EIS, saying that to take a ferry from St. Thomas to Road Town would take us roughly 2 hours and cost us a total of about $200 with all the ferry transfers and taxis. Plus I'm still not clear on whether Biras would pick us up from the Road Town docks or if we would have to make our own way to some other docks to meet their private boat.

Then I looked into non-Air Sunshine charter flights from STT to Tortola and they are very expensive.

Anyone have any suggestions, experience with this?
