VIPA Advises Mariners of Victor Sewer Marine Facility Operations Due to National Park Dock Closure
The Virgin Islands Port Authority received notice that the Virgin Islands National Park dock in Cruz Bay, St. John will be closed from January 2023 through August 2023 for maintenance. VIPA will allow mariners to use the Victor Sewer Marine Facility (“The Creek”) for loading and offloading only during the closure. Mariners must contact the VIPA dockmasters via VHF channel #16 to request permission to use the dock at The Creek. Requests will be approved on a first come/first serve basis, and the dockmasters’ orders must be adhered to. In addition, all users of the dock will be charged a $1.00 per foot, per day docking fee per VIPA’s Marine Tariff. Mariners may contact Chief Wharfinger Lowell Blackwood at 340-513-1202 or by sending an email to LBlackwood@viport.com.
