In this small family business, we do our best to uphold the maritime legacy of the ole’ time St. John families. As many of you know, our fleet is named after Captain Llewellyn Sewer’s grandfather, Captain Victor William Sewer, aka Captain Vic. The Victor William Sewer Marine Facility, also known as the Creek, is named after this pioneer in the marine industry of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Act No 7008 of the Virgin Islands Legislature notes many of Captain Victor Sewer’s notable contributions to the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands, which included using his boat the “Jolly Roger” as a floating classroom and establishing the first ferry service between Cruz Bay, St. John and Tortola. He was also instrumental in the founding of commercial marine transportation between Red Hook and Cruz Bay, as the first boat Captain of the St. John Development Corporation. Captain Victor Sewer inherited this maritime tradition from his own father, Captain Lancelot Sewer, and other elders in the East End community of the island. In fact, when we trace the genealogy of the families— the Sewers, the Varlacks, and the Boynes for example— we find that this business is a service to the people and the Ancestors as it upholds a traditional family vocation that has lasted for hundreds of years. Here at Love City Car Ferries, Inc we are pleased to have the opportunity to employ and train the next generation of boat captains and entrepreneurs in the marine industry of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
In the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Love City Car Ferries community is grateful for the opportunity to continue providing the people of the Virgin Islands with a critical service. We know that transportation across Pillsbury Sound is essential and we appreciate your continued support. Per usual, the Love City Car Ferries family would like to thank all of our valued customers for riding the Motor Vessel Capt Vic.
