Hello everyone - I'll be moving to St Croix late December from Tennessee. I will be flying Delta because they are the only airline that will fly her 700 series crate (she's a Great Dane about 130lbs) BUT, they can only fly to St Thomas - NOT directly to St Croix.

My question is this: How do I get her from St Thomas to St Croix?? Are there any ferries? Boats to rent?

PLEASE...I need help. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you!

Delta has non stop flights from Atlanta to St Croix daily from Dec 17-Jan 7. But I don't think Delta accepts dogs as checked bags anymore. No ferry as of yet. You can call Bohlke Airways and charter a small airplane for the pooch form STt to STX.

Call Seaborne Airlines.

Seaborne Airlines

I don't know if they have size restrictions but I've flown with my 80 lb. dog from STT to PR for surgery and back, previously. They service STT/STX with regular daily flights. She was in cargo going over as flight was full.
On the way back, they allowed her kennel in the 2 seats across from me since there weren't many passengers.

I can give you contact info on a private FAA certified service here in STT that a friend who's a pilot works with if other arrangements don't work out.
PM me, if needed.

You're likely going have to hire a boat to bring her over. None of the planes that fly will allow her in cabin and most of them are tiny planes. Im sure you can find someone who's coming over. Too bad the ferry is STILL not running. Should give up on that I suppose.

Dog would fly cargo from STT for the 20 min. flight to STX.
A boat trip, if you can find someone to take you, will take considerably longer and it can be an extremely rough trip. A seasick dog makes an unhappy dog....and owner.
