Non-Ferry service to JVD from Tortola

Going to be stopping in Tortola on a cruise in September. Unfortunately the ferry service out of west end does not work timing wise and the excursion offered by DCL is from 7:30-1:30. Not the best for a day of boozing at Soggy Dollar. Are there any other ways to get to JVD that aren't renting a private charter for $500+? TIA

I now see your dilemma! The gap in ferries coming back from Jost between noon and 5 pm.

We have a house on the East End of Jost and have to hire a private water taxi on some of our trips to get over from Tortola. $250 each way is the going rate. So I am not confident you will find much lower.

Maybe you need to plan a trip to just Jost, for at least a week, to truly get the Soggy experience!

good idea. I'll just set up a cot right outside for a week.
