Getting There -- Take the ferry to White Bay on Jost Van Dyke from either St. Thomas or Tortola. (Be warned: Departure times can vary widely throughout the year, and often don't adhere very closely to the printed timetables.) Ferries from St. Thomas depart from Red Hook Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, usually twice daily. A round-trip is $40, while one-way is $30. More convenient (and more frequent) are the daily ferryboat shuttles from Tortola's isolated West End. The latter depart five times a day for the 25-minute trip, and the round-trip cost is $20 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under. Call the New Horizon Ferry Service Paradise Express (tel. 284/495-9278; www.bestofbvi.com) for information about departures from any of the above-mentioned points. If all else fails, negotiate a transportation fee with one of the handful of privately operated water taxis on Tortola. Fees start around $100 one-way.
