St. John''''s bareboat charter
We charter all the time out of Tortola and always include St. John as part of the itinerary. North side is much better than South coast.
Do not recommend trying to anchor or moor in Cruz Bay. The customs dock area is shallow and there is heavy traffic with little room. The Southern areea of Cruz Bay has many locals that can get outright nasty with charter boats (may be some good resons behind this from the past).
Highly recommend picking up a National Park mooring in Caneel Bay then go ashore and catch a taxi over the hill to Cruz Bay. Taxi''s are always waiting there at Caneel Bay Resort (beautiful). Cost of taxi is $3/person. We''ve done this many time without problems.
