Check with Peter Island since they were providing transport for their guests from St. Thomas via their launch. You have the option to ferry to RoadTown, Tortola, and meeting the Peter Island ferry there. You can hire a private water taxi or charter a helicopter. Time would vary depending on your choice. Ferry to West End, Tortola, is approx 45 minutes and to RoadTown 1.5 hours.

good info from the last guy, but I would guess that someone who doesn't want to fly in a small plane would not want to get in a helicopter either. If you really don't want to fly to Tortola (where Peter Island will meet you for a 20 minute ride to the resort), then book the private water taxi from St. Thomas to Peter Island. I think that ferries will take a long time. Check out St. Thomas This Week (online).

If you are staying at the Peter Island Resort, they will make arrangements to transport you from STT to Peter Island (no additional charge, I believe). I'm not sure exactly where you get the ferry, but its a cab ride from the airport. The ferry will stop first in the BVI to clear customs - probably in Road Town, then continue on to Peter Island. Check their web site and call the resort if you have questions - they are very helpful. The total time is about 90 minutes from Saint Thomas once you are on the ferry.

By comparison, the ferry ride from Tortola's airport is about 25 minutes.
