Cost of Ferry from Trellis Bay

by SandraMontgomery

How much is the ferry from Trellis Bay to Virgin Gorda? Is it the North Sound Express?

Also, how much is a cab for two from Fischers Cove to the Baths?

Thanks,

Sandra

Try this website for the ferry schedule and pricing.

http://www.bestofbvi.com/info/bviferry_tortola_vg_nsx.htm

It is listed at $40 r/t for adult. I know that ferries in the USVI have tacked on surcharges to keep up with fuel costs in the last few years. I don't know about this one. You can call the operator NORTH SOUND EXPRESS Tel: (284) 495-2138 to verify price and schedule.
You will find other BVI ferry questions answered at;

All I have found on taxi cost is this on http://www.b-v-i.com/beef.htm "On Virgin Gorda, taxis can be found at the airport or the stand at the Yacht Harbour ferry dock. Also, the rental companies on Virgin Gorda provide taxi service, including Andy's Jeep Rentals (495-5252), L&S Garage Taxi & Car Rental (495-5297), Mahagony Rentals and Taxi Service (495-5469), and Speedy's (495-5240). A fare to anywhere in The Valley is about $3 and a trip to Leverick Bay or Gun Creek is $20 for up to four people."

We will be at Fischers Cove in early March. From what I've been told, taxi fare is $2 per person to The Baths. If you are up for exercise you can walk in less than 30 minutes.

Hope this helps! When are you going?

Travel Tips for Virgin Gorda

Virgin Gorda be prepared!

by visurferguy

Travel light if you are day tripping to Virgin Gorda. You don't want more then a back pack. Bring something that leaves your hands free. Bring the minimum or you will have to haul it through the trail to the baths! Waterproof bags are nice! Wear your swim suit on the ferry with a shirt. Pack dry clothes in a bag for after and put them on when you are done. The trail to the Baths includes underground grotto's so put flops in your dry bag for later and wear Aqua Socks. You can get them at K-mart in St Thomas for $6-$8. Socks will be soaked so leave them behind. Flops are bad for hiking and wading. Really don't need much. If you want extra points, bring a first aid kit, but you probably won't need it. No real hospitals here!!!! If you forget a camera, you will be so sorry. Make sure it's secured in a splash proof bag for when you go wading. Beach towel and suntan lotion are a good idea. Bring your sunglasses, preferably with a leash so you won't lose them while climbing around.

There's more Virgin Gorda than The Baths!

by catalysta

The Baths are unique & wonderful, but ask the people who live here for some tips on other lovely spots to see that might surprise you. HIke to the top of Gorda Peak, go see the Coppermine, visit Leverick Bay - yeah, I've detailed these already in my Things To Do tips, so have a look and try some of them out, instead of hanging with 5o bazillion other day trippers at the Baths.
The week I spent on VG went by so quickly, it's almost a blur. For such a small & relatively quiet island, it's incredible how much there is to do!

Copper Mine Point

by catalysta

On the east side of the Valley a road by the same name leads you to the ruins of the old Copper Mine, a fantastic photo op and view spot. On March 28,2003 the site was declared an historic park. It is currently being restored and set up for visitors, but in the meantime be very careful since the loose rocks and open shafts can be treacherous - remember Americans, you aren't in the US anymore, so you have to take responsibility for yourself, and you can't sue anyone for your own carelessness!

Most locals believe the Copper Mine was originally begun by the Spanish miners for whom Spanish Town is named back in the early settlement days of the 1600's. However, the mine shaft & structures we see today at the Point were built in 1837, and eventually abandoned in 1862.

Spend a day or two at Leverick Bay

by catalysta

The resort & marina at Leverick Bay offer all sorts of fun activities, and it's such a tiring drive over the mountain to get over there you may well want to make an overnight trip out of it. All sorts of watersports are offered, with shops for Dive BVI and Leverick Bay Watersports right there in the mall. My favorite option would be to rent a Boston Whaler and do some poking around in the little islets and coves with which North Sound bay is riddled. Then they will give you directions for doing a self-guided docks pub crawl in North Sound before you come home!
Small day sailboats can be rented, or kayaks as well. You may even wish to just relax at the charming and beautifully landscaped marina, where they make the best Painkillers on the island, and you can have a delicious fresh seafood meal either outdoors dockside or upstairs in the more formal terrace restaurant.

Virgin Gorda

by agapotravel

We took a day trip to Virgin Gorda from Tortola. The ferry runs daily, so it was very easy to plan a trip. Most people visit Virgin Gorda to snorkel the world famous Baths. We did that, and it was a lot of fun, but we also took the time to explore more of this island.
