St. Thomas Charlotte Amalie info
 
I am looking for a decent place for everyone in our travel group to meet before our ferry ride to Tortola. Can anyone suggest a nice little bar to have some refreshing drinks and enjoy nice views that is near the ferry dock in Charlotte Amalie?

Thanks

If you can get dropped at the Ferry they will keep your luggage while you walk or take a group taxi down the waterfront. There is an open air bar/restaurant visible from the street. That way you don't have to deal will your luggage. I believe the name was the Greenhouse.

The easiest will be the Petite Pump Room upstairs above the Ferry Terminal, you also are right beside French Town, Hook Line and Sinker is at the Marina there. The Greenhouse is like a Caribbean Bennigan's in the middle of the downtown shopping district.

The Pump Room is clearly the simplest and you can watch the air taxi off and land.

Another vote for the Pump Room. Right at the ferry terminal. Nothing could be easier.

Thanks everyone. We decided on the pump room for it's pure convenience although a Bennigans like place is awfully tempting:rolleyes:

Re: St. Thomas Charlotte Amalie info - Taxi info?
 
Can anyone tell what to expect to pay for cab fare from the STT airport to the CA ferry dock / Pump Room?

Any other advice on cabs? Do I just head for the taxi stand at the airport or make arrangements ahead of time?

$8 per person each way. They are lined up at both the ferry dock and airport. You will ride with many others and probably not leave until the van is full. Doesn't take long.

Hopefully they will consider us a full load with 6 adults and one child.

It's good to be hopeful.:) In practice, from the airport, the taxi doesn't move until it is filled to capacity. Just be prepared should that be your experience. On top of the published rate there is a $2/bag fee. You can look here St. Thomas Island Guide: Taxis & Rates
The area you are going to is Frenchtown or what is listed as Holiday Inn (no longer).

Have fun.
