Maintenance Dredging Starts Thursday at Red Hook Car Ferry Dock

The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) informs the public that its contractor will begin maintenance dredging at the Noel “Breeze” Boynes Sr. Car Ferry Dock in Red Hook, St. Thomas on Thursday, November 30, 2023. The dredging will be performed at night without interrupting the barge or passenger ferry operations in Red Hook. It will take approximately ten days to complete.


The Boynes Car Ferry Dock in Red Hook is primarily used by three barge companies that provide scheduled transportation for cargo and vehicles between St. Thomas and St. John daily. The maintenance dredging will remove sand and sediment build-up at the dock to improve safety conditions for the vessels that use the facility. VIPA’s Board of Governors awarded Divic-Madou Enterprises, Inc. a contract for the car ferry dock maintenance dredging project at its July 2023 meeting. The project is estimated to cost $158,556 and is funded by VIPA.
