Customs – After Hours

If you are looking for a water taxi to take you from the USVI to BVI, you've come to the right place. We regularly provide water taxi service from St. Thomas to Road Town. BVI.

BVI Customs

Getting through customs after hours can be easy and complicated, it just depends. Late flights or other delays unexpectedly get in the way. If there is a delay on the flight, you give us a call and we will have everything worked out before you're in the air. Once you land, we will be there to pick you up in the baggage claim.

We know its not your fault that your flight is delayed, but you still have to deal with the consequences. We work with you to minimize that impact. Our operations team has moved thousands of passengers over their years. We are so experienced, we can almost predict which flights will have delays. If we can't get you through, we will offer a full refund or can schedule you for transport the next morning.

Our experienced team have a variety of strategies to manage getting you through customs. We've already conducted an internal evaluation and risk assessment of the whole process. We know what works and what doesn't. We have around ten tried and true strategies to get you through customs.

The customs houses used to be open later before hurricane Maria and Irma in 2017. Since then, some of the customs houses were destroyed and have been operating out of temporary buildings. It is not clear when or if expanded hours will be reinstated. Much of Tortola is still rebuilding.

Can't I Schedule Late Entry?

If it were just a matter of money, that would be easy. Any late entry into the BVI will need to be approved by the Commissioner of Customs. As of late, he has not been approving after hours entries.

Getting through customs after hours is more about knowing the rules of the game.  I often tell my kids, if you don't know the rules, you can't play the game. Contact us about your specific situation and we will give you our honest opinion.

At the end of the day, sometimes it is the ferry that fits your budget. Our clients choose because of convenience, expertise, and so they can start their vacation from the moment they land!

Seahorse Land and Water Taxi were so friendly and easy to work with. They made traveling from the airport to our island simple. We booked them from St. Thomas to Oil Nut bay. They had the customers forms all filled out and simple, the process was very quick. The best part was their responsiveness and communication throughout the process. I would highly recommend them!read more

These guys did a tremendous job getting us from St Thomas airport to Tortola. We were pushing it to make it through customs in time. Ameer navigated through traffic on side streets to avoid a police parade and get us to Red Hook, where Kim and Nelson had the boat waiting for us. They all cooridinated with each other and we beat customs closing by 12 minutes. I don't think any other service could have got us there in time. Highly recommend these guys. Thanks!read more
