    Arriving by Plane

    One option for U.S. travelers to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) is to arrive into Puerto Rico at the Luis Munox Marin International Airport (airport code SJU), often flying directly from almost a dozen U.S. airports, depending on location. Connections from San Juan – as well as St. Maarten; St. Thomas, USVI; and Antigua – into the BVI airport - Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (airport code EIS) are then available on airlines such as Seaborne, InterCaribbean, Cape Air, and LIAT.

    Taxi Transportation in Tortola

    Once you arrive in Tortola, taxis are available from both the airport and the ferry dock to take you to your hotel. As residents of a British territory, taxi drivers speak English. Your MarineMax Vacations planning expert will handle your transfers tickets and reservations for taxis and ferries so you can enjoy worry-free travel.

  • Ferry Transportation from St. Thomas

    If you fly into the St. Thomas airport, you have the option of taking the ferry to Tortola by taking a taxi from the airport to the ferry dock. The ferries typically run from 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (though sometimes later) and tickets may be purchased at the dock prior to departure.
