Getting Around

Peter Bay Beach Cottage

Getting Around

There are no direct flights to St. John, so visitors to the island fly in to St. Thomas and then come over by ferry or car barge. Once on the island, the primary way to get around is either by taxi or by renting a car or SUV.

*Note:  Rental vehicle is highly recommended. They are available on St. John and St. Thomas.

Taxis are readily available throughout the day.  However, late afternoon and evening is a more challenging time for relying on taxis.  Thus, we highly recommend a rental vehicle for use throughout your stay at the Peter Bay Beach Cottage.

The Gallows Point Resort Concierge is a great resource for information on the ferry and car rentals.  Contact Manager at 340-643-2628 for assistance.

Ferry/Barge

Airport to Red Hook Ferry Map

We recommend that guests take the Red Hook ferry because of its hourly schedule and because of schedule inconsistencies with the downtown ferry. 

More information about the ferry, including schedules, can be found here.

Ferry tickets may be purchased in advance here.

St. John Vehicle Rental

We recommend Cruz Bay Car Rental when renting on St. John. In addition to competitive prices, they are locally owned and operated, reliable, with excellent customer service.  They have a selection of 2 and 4 door Jeeps, and SUV’s with seating for up to 7 people.

Contact Manager with the Gallows Point Resort Concierge at 340-643-2628 for assistance with vehicle rentals.

Private Water Taxi

Another option, though more expensive, is to reserve a private “water taxi” from Charlotte Amalie to take you from one of the St. Thomas docks to St. John National Park dock.

Contact Manager with the Gallows Point Resort Concierge at 340-643-2628 for assistance with private water taxis.
