Sailing to the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean 1500

Visiting The Baths: Ferry To Tortola

This is the "taxi" that Speedy's uses to shuttle people from the ferry dock to The Baths.   There was a workboat on the other side of the ferry dock.

Just as our ferry was pulling away from the dock, another workboat was pulling in. It had a ramp at the bow so it could transport vehicles. Click on the right-hand picture to see a bigger version; use your browser's "back" command to return here.

This is the cargo ship Slotergracht, which among other things can transport recreational boats as deck cargo (you can see numerous boats on deck). When they arrive with your sailboat, you board the ship and climb aboard your boat. Then the ship's crane lowers your boat over the side and you sail away. To see how this is done, check out the log of Sno' Dog.   This is the BVI Government Administration Building, as seen from the ferry just before we reached the dock in Road Town.
