Insider Tip - Always Say "Good Morning!"

Here's a tip that I'll pass along to you for free, because we're friends, and I don't want people to associate us with you if you're acting like a fool on the island ;-)

Always Say Good Morning or Good Afternoon.

Simple as that! 

 Greetings are very important in the Virgin Islands - say "good morning", "good afternoon" or "good evening" to store clerks, bartenders or even taxi drivers, and you will receive better service!

Notify your Credit Card Company

It may be wise to give your credit card company a call and let them know that you'll be traveling this month, so that they don't put a stop on your card when charges start coming through from the islands. 

This is especially true for anyone heading the BVI's. 
However if you're coming with us on the BVI's day charter I would recommend bringing cash, as The Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke only accepts your soggy dollars :)

The Beach Bar Live Cam

The bar where we're having our Welcome Party Happy Hour has a live web cam, showing both the view of the bar and the view of the beach. 

You can check out both cams here 24/7: 

Feel free to pass this link along to friends or family so they can check us out on Friday night!
 It's also fun to see out how many people are saddled up to the bar at 9:45 am on a Tuesday. Hey, it's 5 o'clock somewhere!

Taxi from Airport to Ferry

If you are taking a taxi from the airport to the ferry, either the one in downtown St Thomas or Red Hook, I have provided taxi rates below. If you share a taxi it should be $11 per person and sometimes they charge for luggage, but sometimes they don't, it's the islands like that.

From what I gather, most of you are arriving around 1pm which means you'll want to take the Red Hook ferry, since it leaves every hour and the Downtown ferry only leaves 3x a day (10am, 1pm, 5:30pm).

Taxi Rates from Airport: 

Taxi Rates to Red Hook
$15 for one passenger
$11.00 each for two or more passengers
$2.00 each for regular baggage
$4.00 each for large baggage (greater than 20" x 30")
Express Lane- $90 for from 1-4 passengers
Taxi Rates to Downtown Ferry 
$7 for one passenger
$6.00 each for two or more passengers
$2.00 each for regular baggage
$4.00 each for large baggage (greater than 20" x 30")
Express Lane - $55 for from 1-4 passengers

There's an App for that!

That's right folks, there's an App you can download to your mobile device, which you can use while you're on the island since it's a US territory, yay for no roaming charges! 

It's called "The St John App" and has tons of great info on navigating the island, the best beaches, hiking trails, travel tips, and lots more. (Thanks Sarah J!)

According to Kayak.com, there is a 60% chance flight prices will drop within the next 7 days. 
If you have not yet booked your flight, please keep an eye on prices daily for the best deal!

As a reminder, the welcome party is at 5pm on Friday. If you plan on flying in that day, try to land in St Thomas by 2pm to ensure you can get to St John, check into your room and such before walking over to The Beach Bar!
