Getting to St John, USVI
The main access point for all of the US Virgin Islands is in Charlotte Amalie, the capital of St Thomas, USVI. After an easy direct flight into Cyril E King International Airport (STT) you will be greeted with complimentary Cruzan Rum shots as you leave your plane. You can also fly into Puerto Rico and take a comfortable island hopper flight to St Thomas--it averages about 40 minutes. The flight from New York to St Thomas directly is about 4 hours and 15 minutes. That's all that separates you and your northeast winter from the US Virgin Islands Caribbean experience.
At the airport you can catch a cab for the next leg of your trip--the ride across St Thomas to the Red Hook Ferry. Leaving every hour, the ferry is the best way to St John, entering directly into Cruz Bay. The taxi ride to Red Hook Bay takes about 20 to 25 minutes and the ferry takes about the same length of time to reach St John.
