USCG National Vessel Movement Center requirements

I am sailing from Tortola to USVI/St. in a month on a bareboat Sunsail charter with one other person, and I am a US resident. I want to spend several days in St. John before sailing back to the BVI.

If I understand correctly, in addition to the in-person entry requirements at Immigration and Customs in Cruz Bay, I also need to file a USCG NVMC Notice of Arrival/Departure no more than 96 hours before I arrive, and I also must specify my ports of call.

My first question is - Is this correct?

Also, assuming that it is right, if I want to hop around St. John for several days, do I really need to list different "ports" on the notice or can I just list Cruz Bay or Caneel Bay or whatever as my one port? ( I read the regulations as actually requiring me to list every single place I intend to anchor or moor - agh.)
