Do I need to stay in my car when I ride Love City Car Ferries' vessels?
When you come on board the M/V Capt Vic or the M/V Island Vic, you will first park your vehicle. Then we ask that you seek out the cashier, before exiting the vehicle, in order to pay for the service you are about to receive. You do not, however, have to stay in your vehicle during the duration of the car ferry ride. Both vessels have a lounge where you can sit and relax. The M/V Island Vic's passenger seating is larger than the M/V Capt Vic's. Either way the choice is yours.
There is so much to see as you traverse Pillsbury Sound, the waterway that separates St. Thomas and St. John. In addition to observing the beautiful turquoise Caribbean waters you might just spot a dolphin and other beautiful sea creatures. Also, the birds are always flying about the vessel and are a great back drop to photographs, not to mention the sunsets and sunrises are picturesque. In addition, pay attention to the smaller cays such as Lovango, Congo, Mingo, Grassy and Thatch Cays which are to the north. While on the south you can find Great and Little St. James, Dog Island and Dog Rocks. Where else can you find such natural beauty? So, while you are free to stay in your car, you are also free to exit it and enjoy the scenery.
Disclaimer: For your own safety we ask that you follow the directives of the crew and the directions of any posted signage.
September is National Preparedness Month
"September is recognized as National Preparedness Month (NPM) which serves as a reminder that we all must take action to prepare, now and throughout the year, for the types of emergencies that could affect us where we live, work, and also where we visit." https://www.ready.gov/september
In case of a weather related emergency, Love City Car Ferries, Inc. will take the following steps to alert you of changes in schedules as dictated by the VI Government, The Virgin Islands Port Authority and or the United States Coast Guard. Since we do not control the opening and closing of the ports, our course of action is highly dependent on these governmental bodies. Nevertheless, once it is determined whether or not the ports are open, the following is means by which our schedule changes will be communicated to the general public:
Stay safe and remember to pray for the best but prepare for the worst. God Bless!
Let us Never Forget 9/11
We will never forgot where we were and what we were doing on September 11, 2001. But on this tragic day and in its aftermath, countless Americans demonstrated courage. Many were willing to die. Our freedoms don't come easily and should never be taken for granted
We Are Moving to the Marketplace
There comes a time when you have to pull ups stakes....LOL :) No we are not leaving town. We are simply moving the office to The Marketplace, a well known shopping destination on St. John. If you are unsure of the location, just ask anyone "where is Starfish Market?" Please bare with us as we make this move. Our office won't be functioning at full capacity until Monday, September 12, 2016. If you call and we don't answer, leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
