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.

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.

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

I cannot recommend the BVI's for a week. I can recommend them for 10 days though. Lol. Way too beautiful for only a week. I'm kidding of course. One day is great if thats all you have. Always had luck with Conch Charters. Decent boats at affordable rates. As far as airfare goes try Jet Blue. The just started flying into St Thomas. RT from San Diego to STT through Boston in early May was just over $500.

Yup, saw Jim sitting on his front porch when we were there. Did not go in though. I did see his bike. I would have stopped to chat with him if I had known how interesting he was.

You may already know Kelly's. It is the bar that is wedged between the road and the beach with no roof or walls. Next place east of Sailor's rest.
