Hi,
Does anyone know if there are non-stop flights from any airport near NYC to STX? I can't find any so far and I will be traveling with pets so I don't want a connecting flight.

Not any direct flights to VI from NY that I'm aware of.
You may try for a non stop to Miami or PR, then on to STX.

Maybe not STX but I think you can find some to STT. Might be seasonal or not daily. I think American and Delta from JFK and United from Newark. Then check out the pet rules on the island hoppers.

Ok that sounds good. So the island hoppers would be seaplanes right?

Seaplane is probably your best bet and takes you into Christiansted.
Finding a taxi to take your dog, even in kennel, might be challenging.
Maybe STX peeps can chime in.

Taxis are required to take your securely crated pet. But you may have to strongly remind them of the rules. They can charge you $30 for a large crate and $20 for a small one.

Do you know if taxi's will take a medium sized dog out of a crate? Its just the crate is big. Its easier to take it apart to put it in the car. Or maybe are there car/van services i can set up in advance to pick us up? Like a private van?

What is your plan and final destination? You can pick up a rental car at the airport or at the seaplane terminal in STX. Even a one day car rental may very well be cheaper than taxi with pets.

Ok great I was going to rent a car anyway I just haven't put together how all this would work yet. Ok perfect I'll pick up a car rental at the airport then.

I don't have an exact address yet because I won't be booking an apt or house until next month.

I agree, the car rental is probably your best option. You have a better chance of seeing pigs fly than finding a taxi driver who will allow a loose dog. I had one give me an argument when I insisted my small dog ride on my lap - in her carrier. it was a soft carrier and he was trying to jam her in with the rest of the luggage in the back. Also, with a larger crate, you'd have to probably wait for a taxi that is not too full.

Centerline Car Rental has an office right at the base of the seaplane dock in Christiansted. I've done the Seabourne to STX and car rental from them several times, never had a problem.

Ok yes I think the plan is now to fly from NYC to STT and then take the Seaborn to STX and rent a large jeep or caravan or something to fit everything. Phew thanks for your help.
