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.
