Water Taxi services

Water Taxi services —  for those wishing to island hop (literally) between the different BVI islands, there are a number of charter boat firms that offer water taxi services, such as Inter Island Boat Services (, New Horizon Ferry Service (, North Sound Express, and Speedy’s (

Some of these boat firms have pre-set schedules to go from one island to another (say, from Tortola to Jost Van Dyke), which means per passenger costs should be minimal (for example, one service charges $25 r/t for the Tortola-Jost Van Dyke route).  If you need to charter a boat privately (say, for yourself and/or you and a group of friends), that can be considerably costlier, depending on the firm.
