    This is not a first class operation, so don't expect it to be. Some of the staff act like they are doing you a favor....some are very sweet. You pay for luggage. If the seas are rough, and you sit below the top deck in the middle/rear area, expect to get a salt-water shower. We enjoyed the crazy, bumpy ride, but others who tend to be sea sick or have an expensive hair do will have a problem. They were on time, which was nice. The restaurant upstairs from the ferry building is quite good...and they will let you store your luggage.

    We wanted to avoid the cruise crowds and start our vacation as effortlessly and as quickly as possible. Dohm's made it easy. The reservations were fast and simple. They also made the land taxi reservation. The boat was there exactly on time. The captain and mate were very friendly and efficient. There was even cold, bottled water to enjoy!

    We booked a ride from St. Thomas to St. Croix, and then returned a few days later. The boat was nice and had comfortable seats. Check-in was easy, although VERY limited parking areas. The seats are all indoors, although there is a small area that a few people can walk outside to in the stern of the boats by the restrooms. It would be nice to have outdoor seats, or at least be able to walk on the sides of the boat, which would definitely help those prone to seasickness.

    Although three of us in our group suffered no ill effects, my sister and at least one other passenger were throwing up most of the way to St. Croix. Obviously, the ferry has no control over the waves, but the ride there was extremely wavy with the boats being smacked around constantly. My sister flew back on the return trip, although coming back the ride was quite smooth.

    It would be nice if there were more time options for departing. There is only one trip to St. Croix each day, which is in the afternoon, and only one time coming back to St. Thomas, which is at 8:00 a.m.

    If leaving on a weekend, they recommend advance ticket purchase.

    Very professional. Everything went exactly as planned. The only wait was for the luggage. We had a large group of 15 so it required two taxis and two boats. They even delivered some left behind luggage later on the evening of our arrival. I wouldn’t go from STT to BVI any other way.

    We used SeaHorse as our private water taxi. Amy and her team are great! Seamless logistics from the time you land in STT till you get to your destination. I have been using Amy and her team for many years and she never disappoints. If you are traveling with a small or large group and don't want to fight the ferry traffic I highly suggest reaching out to her for any of your needs.
