we live in STX. I have upcoming flights where I arrive in STT at 6:45 pm. Is there really no way to get back over here at that time? Looks like Seabornes last flight over is at 6:20. Are there options available that I am missing?

I think CapeAir has a flight at 6:50 PM, but that's the last scheduled flight I know of. The seaplane can't fly after dark and they also shut down their wheel based aircraft after the 6:20 PM flight. The only other option for late night connections is to book a private flight or to fly through San Juan instead of STT and catch the later flights coming over from there.

Seaborne http://www.seaborneairlines.com/ has late shuttle flights (airport to airport) on some days. For example, on Wednesday 10/26 they have 7 flights from STT to STX departing between 6:20pm and 9:45pm. But it must be a special occasion because I spot-checked other days and the last flights out were at 6:20pm.

DLR Aviation, a.k.a. SeaFlight, flies between STT and STX. Their number is 714-3000, but they're temporarily closed for about another month while awaiting their license from DLCA.

here's what we are trying to do. We go to Anguilla. If we fly STX to ST. Martin, we have to leave Anguilla around 7:30 in the morning to catch the liat flight back to st. croix. But if we do Liat's Anguilla to St. Thomas, we gain an day, as that flight leaves Anguilla at 6pm, arriving STT 6:40. Just can't seem to get back here after that time. Going out to SJU and back is more costly and wouldn't gain us anything. I did send emails to seaborne and cape air, to see if they will add later flights in the high season. No response yet, and the seaborne email has bounced back to me.

just checked the seaborne website and it seems to be Wed. only that they show about 5 extra evening flights and they all say sold out. Maybe there's a glitch with the system. Anyone working for seaborne read these threads? Maybe you could shed some light on this.

I used SeaFlight once, in 2007, and I have no complaints. At that time, their planes were new. I assume they'll be flying again by high season. They fly airport to airport using float planes with wheels. You should call them and ask what time their last flight is from STT to STX.

Also, the ferry Royal Miss Belmar should be running again soon between STT and STX (see http://virginislandsdailynews.com/news/royal-miss-belmar-back-soon-psc-told-1.1217045 ) although it can be uncomfortable and unreliable. And be sure to tell the captain if you see any islands moving into the ferry's path. It has a limited schedule of 4 days/week: http://www.vinow.com/general_usvi/interisland_ferry/#stcroix . If they keep that schedule, the last sailing will be too early for you.

Remember, when you are coming in from Anguilla you have to clear customs in STT, so you have to factor in the additional time.
