We understand your transportation needs and your fear about whether or not you are going to get home, particularly if you live on St. John. We also understand your need to get back to St. Thomas on time, in order to catch the plane, or for your doctor's appointment, etc. etc. We understand, because we have been on your side.
In the early 1990s the owners of Love City Car Ferries, Inc owned and operated LTS Trucking/LTS Waste Management, Inc. At that time, we too depended solely on the car ferries to get us from one island to the next. Like you, we depended on them to keep our business going and to transport us personally to doctor's appointments etc. We saw our car ferry cost double over night; we were taken off the vessels numerous times, we were left behind. Out of that frustration, in an effort to provide more, and with the legacy left to us by the late Captain Victor W. Sewer, we started this company.
It is for this very reason, that we do not leave our customers and go on charters. We understand. You can depend on us. Never assume we have left you behind for any other reason than mechanical issues or United States Coast Guard inspections. When this occurs, we update FaceBook and Twitter as quickly as possible; so follow us on these platforms. Or if you don't see the M/V Capt Vic on schedule, please give us a call at 340-779-4000 during business hours of 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. If we don't pick up, leave a message, we will call you back.
Thanks for giving us the privilege of serving you. We may not get it right all the time, but trust that we always have your best interest at heart.

I am so upset that my hands are shaking but I must publicly respond to the above. Ms. Julie Lasota took liberties to state publicly on FaceBook that Love City Car Ferries, Inc left people stranded to go and work for Little St. James. Please read her post above....where she said you left...while working for a known "$#!&%". I am sure she has, by now, taken it down since I called her and told her that I am outraged and that I demand a public apology.
Let me clearly state that we have not done work for Little St. James, neither now nor in recent times. This is not to say we won't ever work for Little St. James; but at the moment, Global Marine works for Little St. James, NOT Love City Car Ferries, Inc. Further WE DO NOT EVER leave customers and go on charters. If our vessel is not on the docks it is simply because we may have a mechanical issue. We have a policy of not working for anyone during the day because we have a Virgin Islands Port Authority approved schedule that we must keep and also because we have a public to serve.
I want to make it clear that Love City Car Ferries, Inc and more specifically the M/V Capt Vic continues to work tirelessly for the people of the Virgin Islands. It pains my heart when individuals who are clearly ignorant of the facts would state things in a public setting without first calling us to find out what is going on.
Careless comments such as these affect our brand and ultimately affect our bottom line. How does the public expect to have car ferry companies that are actually sustainable when they continue to assault us publicly? We don't get any help from the government and we constantly get insults from the public. It is tiring.
Global Marine and Love City Car Ferries, Inc are 2 separate companies with separate vessels. Before anyone posts anything again about Love City Car Ferries, Inc please find out the facts first. I am going to have an immediate conversation with my attorneys about Ms. Lasota's post. I shall not take these type of insensitive attacks lightly.

What does Black History Month mean to you? As we ponder this question, we are forced to keep in mind the contributions of people of African descent across the diaspora or more particularly, in the Virgin Islands. We can easily remember names like:
For me, Black History Month means that we all have a responsibility to continue their legacy and remember their sacrifices. It also means that we have a responsibility to teach others of the contributions of those who came before. As it pertains to the famous Virgin Islanders. Here is a quiz. Can you answer these questions correctly? Can your kids?
As it pertains to Black History Month in general, here are some facts. Black History Month is half way over; but in truth, it never is. We can continue learning and growing because the contributions of people of African descent across the diaspora is a significant part of our daily lives, such as:
