Overview

Hi Everyone! Dolphin Water Taxi is the only USVI / BVI water taxi provider able to deliver guests from the St Thomas airport to ANY destination in the BVI. We specialize in door-to-door transfers of guests arriving at STT and travelling to charter docks and hotels in the BVI for their vacation. If the public ferry connection is too tight, if your flight doesn't arrive early enough to make it, or if you just prefer not to deal with the large 150 passenger crowds and delays, please allow us to serve your needs. We operate from St Thomas to Tortola as late as 8pm nightly. And we help with BVI customs entry clearance! Happy travels! [Dolphin Water Taxi is now the largest private water taxi service in the entire Caribbean, and rated, "Best Water taxi in the VI", by the St Thomas Daily News.]

Count on Dolphin to get you to the BVI and back! They’re fast, fun, fairly priced and safe; what more can you ask for?
