Yes. They are all called X Fast Ferry but in my experience the only fast one is Road Town Fast Ferry.

Re: Recent charter in BVIs

My suggestion is to arrive at the ferry dock of your choice and purchase a one way ticket on the NEXT ferry that is departing. There is very little difference in transit time once the ferry actually leaves the dock. For reference you may Google "ferry St Thomas to Tortola" and not take the posted schedule too seriously...

Enjoy your trip.

Re: Recent charter in BVIs

sailcw: FarCry would know, but my experience over a number of years is the same: don't count on the schedule, especially if you attempt to cut it close to catch a return flight from St. Thomas.

Allowing some extra time on your return to Charlotte Amalie, you can check your luggage right there at the ferry dock for free (last time I was there), walk down the street for lunch across from the harbor and then walk back to the ferry dock and pick up a taxi to the airport.

As far as I know, they will watch your luggage. There is good food right above the ferry dock at the Petite Pump Room and a variety of good eateries just west and south of the dock too, at Frenchtown. Anybody can point you in the right direction. It's about a 3 minute walk.

Please DO leave two hours to check in at the airport. On Weekends there is usually a very long line.
