What Airport Do I Fly Into?
The closest international airport for the BVI is on Tortola (the Terrence B. Lettsome Airport – airport code EIS), and it is from this airport that your arrival and departure transfers are included.
Terrence B. Lettsome Airport – airport code EIS
The most direct way to EIS from North America is via San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU). Frequent connecting service is offered by Cape Air and Seaborne and interCaribbean Airways, with occasional service offered by other airlines and charter flights. Charter airline service can be arranged from almost anywhere in the Caribbean.Click HERE for more information on inter-Island aviation.
Regular service from San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) to Virgin Gorda (VIJ) is available with Cape Air but note landing is only possible during daylight hours. If preferred we can arrange your airport transfers to/from VIJ
Most travelers take one of the frequent ferries that travel between downtown Charlotte Amalie or Red Hook, St. Thomas and the BVI. Ferry service is available to Virgin Gorda on select days and to Tortola every day via West End or Road Town.
Getting to the next ferry is very easy – just take a taxi at the St. Thomas Airport and let the taxi driver know that you need to take the next ferry to Tortola or Virgin Gorda (with connections to Anegada and Jost Van Dyke). The taxi drivers will know of any schedule changes and make sure you reach the proper terminal for your connection.
Please note: Ferries from St. Thomas to Tortola and Virgin Gorda (with connections to Anegada and Jost Van Dyke) only operate during daylight hours – so the last ferry is usually around 4:30/5pm. Make sure that your flight arrives in time for the transfer to Charlotte Amalie (approximately 10 minutes) or Red Hook (approximately 45 minutes) or make arrangements to overnight in St. Thomas and catch the ferry the following morning. Ferry service starts at approximately 7:30am.

Will SeaDream be moored / anchored?
SeaDream will anchor off Leverick Bay but exact position will be determined by the weather and sea state to ensure maximum comfort for guests. One evening the SeaDream will need to sail approximately 3 miles offshore to empty waste water tanks (grey water run). This is planned between approximately 3:00 am and 6:00 am on Thursday December 7th.
