The Virgin Islands is part of the Leeward Islands Archipelago, a group of islands located in the Caribbean Sea. Politically there are United States Virgin Islands a dependent territory owned by the United States of America and there are British Virgin Islands owned by the United Kingdom. There are four main islands in the US Virgin Islands, St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas, and Water Island. Love City Car Ferries, Inc. has ferries operating between St. Thomas and St. John. The distance between these two islands is approximately 3 miles.
This three miles is one of the most picturesque views in the Caribbean and it takes approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the weather, etc., for the car ferry to traverse this divide, known as Pillsbury Sound.
With the beautiful views, It feels like you are in paradise when you are finally on board the vessel and on your way. One can’t help but to look in wonder at the changing shades of blue in the crystal clear waters. If you look with the expectation of a child, you will probably be able to sight dolphins or even a whale every now and then. So have your camera ready and just relax and enjoy the ride.
