• How do I get to Water Island?
    • When you arrive at Cyril E. King Airport, you will need to take a taxi to the Crown Bay Marina, just 5-10 minutes from the airport. Once at the marina, you will need to take the Water Island Ferry, located just outside Tickles Dockside Pub, across to Water Island.

  • How do I get around in St. Thomas?

    • The Safari TAXI, which is an open aired trolly looking vehicle.  Last time we checked it was $2.00 and you just hop off where you like, and $2.00 to get back on again but it is cheaper than a car taxi.  If you go out the Crown Bay Marina Gate, cross the street and walk up the hill, Nisky Center will be on your left, cross the main road at the light and turn left.  The Safari stop is a few yards down. 

    • You can also call a cab to pick you up at the marina.  You can call the day before and give them a reminder call before you ferry over.  Cabs are a little pricier, but they may be able to take you on a great tour with some awesome views on your way to your destination.

  • How do I get around once on Water Island?
    • There are no taxis on Water Island, however, golf carts are available for rent. Rachael's Rentals can provide you with daily, weekly, or monthly pricing. Please note that golf carts are not allowed on the property, but there is an area for parking “on the street”.  
    • A complimentary shuttle is provided upon your arrival and departure. We also provide this service to the beach and ferry for people who may need it.  If we are heading out for a pick-up at the dock, you can also hitch a ride!
