It's about three months post hurricanes. We, like many of you, are still in
recovery and rebuilding mode. Here is an update of where we are and what's going on at Love City Car Ferries, Inc.
The M/V Capt Vic resumed service today December 2nd, 2017. Effective Sunday, December 3rd it will resume its regular schedule.
Thank you for your patience. We endeavor to continue to provide valuable service to our community and are truly just as upset as you are when we are down.
Post hurricanes, the M/V Capt Vic has consistently provided car ferry transportation service between St. Thomas and St. John; at times, it has been the only car ferry in service for this route.
Unfortunely, yesterday the vessel experienced mechanical issues. As a consequence, today, we have to pull the vessel off the run in order to assess. We understand that this is inconvenient for all stakeholders. We apologize; but things like this are out of our control. We will strive to get back on the run as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Love City Car Ferries, Inc. We have so much to be thankful for, most importantly the life that God gave us. What is so significant about this holiday is that it celebrates time with family around good food. Also, it forces us to be grateful for all that we have and to be content. So as you savor your turkey remember to reconnect with those you love.
All Veterans deserve to be remembered, honored, and respected every day, but especially on Veteran's Day. to be remembered, honored, and respected every day, but especially on Veteran's Day.
In the aftermath of the hurricanes we have a lot to be thankful for, particularly life. Despite the loss of material possessions we are still quite thankful for each day as it comes. But since the hurricanes we are even more thankful for the military, particularly Veterans and all those who continue to serve. It is only during times of devastation, like wars and hurricanes, do we really understand how much they sacrifice. So many military personnel came to our aid. We thank them, and we thank all Veterans past and present. Freedom isn't free. God bless you all!
Beginning November 13, 2017 6:15 AM Added
We hope you and your family are well especially after the traumatic experience of hurricanes Irma and Maria.
At Love City Car Ferries Inc, we are trying our best to continue to provide a wonderful car ferry service to the people of the Virgin Islands, both residents and visitors alike. In so doing, beginning Monday, November 13, 2017 we are going to add back in the 6:15 AM departure from Cruz Bay😀. So our schedule will be from 6:15 AM to 5 PM with 5 PM being the last departure from St. Thomas. Thank you for your patience as we work to get back to full schedule, which we hope to do within the next month or so.
Please remember that currently our office telephone number 340-779-4000 still is not in service and internet access is sporadic. As such our office is not fully functional.
Thanks for your understanding and all the best!
Love City Car Ferries, Inc wishes to sincerely thank all of our vendors, customers, patrons, and friends, This has been a difficult time for all of as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Nevertheless, we trust that we will rebuild and we will be stronger.
The M/V Capt Vic continues to work diligently to serve the people of the Virgin Islands, particularly those commuting between the St. Thomas/St. John district. Not only are we available to transport, individuals with their vehicles, but we are also transporting fuel, food, and cargo. Currently we are operating between 8 am to 5 pm, as we are still experiencing staffing challenges.
If you are a charge customer, keep in mind that the island of St John has no internet nor electricity. Thus, invoicing is proving to be difficult. However, as our Terms of Carriage indicates, you are still responsible for payment via the hard copies of the tickets that you have received. We appreciate your patience as we all get accustomed to this new normal. Manual invoices are forthcoming until such time as we can revert back to electronic invoicing.
Thanks so much for your time. We will continue to pray for everyone. God bless!
Ports will be closing tomorrow, Sept. 5th 2017. Hence, Capt Vic's schedule will be adjusted accordingly with the last departure from St. John at 4:00 pm and the last departure from St. Thomas at 5:00 pm. Please adjust your schedules accordingly and share with others. Stay safe and God Bless!
M/V Capt Vic is running its full schedule on Labor Day....no abbreviated Holiday schedule. Stay safe everyone and let's continue to pray for mercy. God bless!

St. John is a small beautiful island located in the Caribbean Sea. It is part of the United States Virgin Islands. When visiting St. John, you will arrive by passenger/car ferry. Below are some pics of the Enighed Pond port where the car ferries dock. However, once you offload where are you? Additional pics represented below will help you figure some of this out. Have fun on St. John and thanks for visiting this page.
Happy Father's Day from your friends at Love City Car Ferries, Inc.
What do you call your father? For many, it's just plain old Daddy. Daddy didn't say much but he still made sure to impart various life lessons. Here are five things my Daddy taught me:
1. I can be, do, and have almost anything as long as I was willing to work hard for it because hard work always pays off,
2. Always tell the truth,
3. Put aside something for a rainy day,
4. Stay out of debt,
5. Be patient through the difficult times.
He may not have said those specific words, many of which are well known. But the various experiences imparted theselessons.
For example, lesson #5, be patient through difficult times was made apparent when I was 18 years old suffering with my wisdom teeth. I called Daddy and told him that I was going to have it pulled. All of my college friends were pulling theirs. He told me the root of that tooth runs very deep and that's why it's so painful. He suggested that rather than pulling it, just be patient through this difficult process. I didn't pull it and I was just fine. It seems like he was always telling me to be patient, especially when I complained about something.
What lessons have you learned from your Daddy? Share with us. Give your Dad a hug or a call today.
God bless all of Dad's of the world.
