Hello friends, locals, travelers, and future guests,

For those who have visited White Bay Villas here on Jost Van Dyke before, we would first like to say thank you. We are fully aware that you already know what an adventure the journey can be like getting here!

We know that your trip to White Bay doesn't begin the moment you step foot off the boat onto the island of Jost Van Dyke or end the moment you leave our beautiful beaches. Your adventure begins the very moment you book your trip and continues even after you return home. When you travel to visit us, it makes you a part of our little island family forever.

Unfortunately, regularly scheduled ferry services (that are separate from our water taxi) were halted between St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke after Hurricane Irma and have yet to resume since our seaports are still in need of substantial work.

In alignment with building both our physical and virtual community, we want to create a long-term relationship with you to help us advocate causes that will enhance everyone's experiences on Jost Van Dyke.

What's Going On -

The 2019 British Virgin Islands General Elections are coming up on February 25th. We want to make sure the officials that are elected hear directly from you about how critically important it is to very substantially, and with a great sense of urgency, improve our seaports of entry.

In doing so, we will not only benefit the local population and businesses here in the Virgin Islands but also have a dramatically improved effect on visitors and people traveling here from all over the world.

Benefits of Your Support:

-        More efficient and smoother travel to and from the BVI and US Virgin Islands

-        Raising government awareness of the tremendous importance of having fully functioning seaports of entry, that contribute not only to the travel experience but to the economy of the British Virgin Islands and Jost Van Dyke.

-        Having more time to spend in Jost Van Dyke with fewer hassles traveling to and from the island.

-        You become an overseas ambassador to all visitors of Jost Van Dyke by making a non-financial, moral contribution of support to the cause.

-        Having a “vote” by making your voice heard. There are 150 registered voters in Jost Van Dyke which represents just 1% of the 15,000 registered voters in the British Virgin Islands. You can make our 1% far stronger by representing the visitors of Jost Van Dyke.

-        Fully functioning seaports of entry will bring back daily scheduled direct ferry service between St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke. This will make it much more economical to get here. With less money being spent getting here you have more money to enjoy on your vacation.

The reality is that Hurricane Irma devasted the British Virgin Islands. Since then, elected officials have been continuously promising and breaking those promises about improvements to the seaports of entry at West End, Tortola and here on Jost Van Dyke. Without these improvements, direct ferry service to and from St. Thomas, St. John, and Jost Van Dyke will not commence. We are making this appeal to you for help because broadening the message to the elected government officials will have a demonstrable impact on them. The election is just days away and there will undoubtedly be fresh faces that will need to hear from you as they take their seats for the first time.

Support Our Seaports is advancing but far from done.

With the news that Inter Island Boat Services (@InterislandBoatServ) is resuming its ferry trip services to Jost Van Dyke out of Cruz Bay, St. John and Red Hook, St. Thomas, we can't help but be excited that progress in interisland services is being made. But there is still much to be done to get the local government to keep the promises they made to the public.
