Employees of Love City Car Ferries, Inc are, for the most part, on board the vessel. Our employees wear blue shirts. Individuals on the dock are agents of Virgin Islands Port Authority. They are the ones who line you up as you wait for the vessels; they are also the ones in the toll booth. We can not control their process nor their procedures. Please keep this in mind as you consider whether or not we have provided good service; as we are noticing negative feedback based on their actions that has nothing to do with us.
Love City Car Ferries, Inc operates the M/V Capt Vic. We are not the operators of all car ferries in the Virgin Islands. Instead we are known to operate ferries under the Vic brand, Island Vic and soon to come Grand Vic. If the vessel you are on does not have Vic in its name, then it’s not one of ours.
We aim to please. Thanks for your patronage.

The Virgin Islands are divided politically between the United States of America (US Virgin Islands) and Great Britain (British Virgin Islands.) Depending on which one you are visiting and where you are coming from will determine what documents you need upon entry.
Love City Car Ferries, Inc. is a United States Virgin Islands car ferry company. If you are an American citizen, no passport is required for you to visit America's Paradise. Yes, we are Americans too and as such you can spend the US dollar and you can send post cards back home using the US Postal Service.
The US Virgin Islands has four major islands: St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John, and Water Island. Each island is unique and offers its own flavor. However, what is noteworthy is the fact that just like continental America is the melting pot of the world, with residents from all major continents, the US Virgin Islands are also a melting pot, but of the Caribbean, with residents from most if not all Caribbean islands. So when you visit, you will truly have the unique opportunity of interacting with people from the Caribbean diaspora. So the food you taste, the music you enjoy, and the accents you hear are truly Caribbean.
How do you catch a car ferry in the United States Virgin islands? It is easier than you think. Below are 5 simple tips that can help you.
Llewellyn “Big Lew” Sewer was a big man not only in physical stature and overall presence, but also in his zest for life. He had big ideas, big dreams and big goals. He left a legacy for all the Virgin Islands by giving each island its beloved nickname: Twin City for St. Croix, Rock City for St. Thomas, Chocolate City for Tortola and of course Love City for St. John, his beloved place of birth.
This Memorial Day weekend we lovingly remember him and all the sacrifices he made for his country and his family. The effects of Agent orange took him from us too soon.
More importantly, we remember the sacrifices of all those who served in the United States military and died and the families who mourn for their loves ones. We can’t help but wonder what life would have been like if they weren’t taken from us so soon.
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE! We miss them. We love them. We remember them.
As we barbecue this Memorial Day weekend, let us all remember those who truly paid the price so that we can smile, flip burgers, and live in a generally free democratic society.
Stay safe Memorial Day and always...
Your friends at Love City Car Ferries, Inc.

As a child, I remember our parades in St. Thomas. The Wild Indians were usually among the last troupes to come into view. I eagerly anticipated them and looked on in awe. I love the display of culture, fantasy, and innate symbolism. Many people of Caribbean descent have native Indian ancestry. Seeing the Indians do their performance was always a surreal experience.
The above images were found in the photo library of the late Llewellyn "Big Lew" Sewer. They were post cards that he kept and were passed on to his kids. I am so happy they were preserved and I just wanted to share them with you.
Carnival is here! Enjoy the fete and remember these cultural symbolism be they Wild Indians, Mocko Jumbie or any others are part of our beautiful cultural landscape.

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:

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.
