At times Love City Car Ferries may have to do an extra trip beyond our last scheduled departure from either island. This is often due to return ticket holders from other companies along with Love City customers needing to return simultaneously and thus exceeding our maximum capacity. If you are a ticketed passenger, it is our duty to ensure, to the best of our ability, that you are returned to your port. If you have an unused return ticket you would simply turn in your yellow return ticket, at no additional cost to you. However, for passengers without a Love City Car Ferries, Inc. ticket, the fare will be $75 for one way trips beyond the last departures from both islands: 6:15 PM from St. John and at 7:00 PM from St. Thomas. This rate is for standard sized vehicles less than 3 tons. If there are any questions regarding after hour rates for other types of vehicles, please give us a call at 340-779-4000. Round trip tickets can not be sold after hours. Thank you for your understanding.

Love City Car Ferries, Inc Does Not Control the Docks
The docks are controlled by the Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) and their agents. Once you arrive, you must pay a toll at VIPA’s toll both. After the toll is paid, you are allowed to enter the gate to access the dock.
Just like the airlines do not control the functions of TSA neither do we control the functions of VIPA. Your reservations are honored once you are in the gate before your departure time. If you are in a long line at TSA, the airlines can’t be blamed if you miss your flight. TSA is not within their control. Similarly, if you are in a long line with VIPA, that is not within our control and we shouldn’t be blamed if you miss your departure.
Our recommendation is for you to arrive early and to make sure you tell the person directing you which company you are booked for. Once you are in the gate on time, your reservation will be honored. If you missed your reserved departure, we will honor your booking on the next available trip, on a first come first served basis.
Our vessels are the Capt Vic or the Grand Vic. They are black and white and the names of the vessels are on the boats. Please be sure to board the correct vessel because other companies use the same docks and they will not honor our reservation.
Again, as a reminder, the individuals on the dock do not work for Love City Car Ferries, Inc. They are instead agents of the Virgin Islands Government via its agency, VIPA
As we approach Easter Sunday, we at Love City Car Ferries, Inc just wanted to take the time to wish our friends a Happy Easter. May you continue to experience love, joy, and peace despite all the chaos in the world. God bless you and your family!

Hey folks, just a friendly reminder that Love City Car Ferries, Inc operates only the Vic branded car ferries, which are black and white vessels with Vic in its name. So if you are about to post a review on Google, please make sure you are actually reflecting on your service with our company, as there are 2 other car ferry companies currently operating. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
Born Anna Elizabeth Ulricka Heegaard in St. Croix, Danish West indies in 1790, she was the mistress of Governor Peter Van Scholten, who emancipated the slaves in 1848. Which begs the question of why this woman of ill repute should be featured? The short answer is that she used her wiles and wit for the betterment of both free colored people and enslaved people in the Danish West Indies.
Heegaard herself was a free colored woman. During her 20 year relationship with the Governor, at a time when interracial relationships were taboo and women had little or no rights, Heegaard petitioned for social justice reforms for free colored and enslaved blacks. For the slaves she fought for:
Some say that Heegaard's relationship with Von Scholten prompted him to make the decision to free the slaves. Others say he was forced to do so due to the intensity of the organized slave revolts. Ultimately however, Anna Heegaard, this little known free colored woman did what she could to help her people.

Black People of Caribbean Descent Who Made History
Every year, as one ponders black history month, it becomes more difficult to reconcile the fact that the history of any group should be relegated to one month of the year. America is a melting pot; thus, American history is black history and black history is world history. Given that internal dialogue, this post was almost not written. Instead, our focus this year is on the the history/impact of black people of Caribbean descent on the American fabric. Hope you enjoy reading this list as much as we enjoyed putting it together. I am sure we have missed many individuals. Feel free to add their names below this post as you read and enjoy our American history.
