I'm guessing you are planning your vacation and looking for Dohm's Water Taxi.
I'm sad to say, they stopped operations in 2017 after hurricanes Irma and Maria.
I did not know them personally.
I've spoken to Mrs. Dohm's, but this is not an endorsement from her.
I apologize if this is next to the IRS Tax Code in length, but I'll try to keep it short.
Short History of Dohm's
Dohm's had been a fixture on St. Thomas for over 50 years.
After Per Dohm's death in 2005, their daughter ran the water taxi for several more years before it was sold off.
It was purchased by a developer who was mainly interested in the dock for setting up a new resort.
When the environmental permits didn't come through, their purchase lost value.
The private dock was destroyed and boats damaged in hurricane Irma and Maria...
...the new owner didn't want to invest in getting the dock repaired and boats running again.
As a result, the boats sat deteriorating for several years.
The dock and boats were purchased in 2020 by the new owners of Lovango Resort.
They have kept Water Taxi III as their ferry and selling off Water Taxi I & II to Cruz Bay Water Sports.
Other businesses on island have started fighting to take over the Dohm's phone number and online listings.
Their last review was in July of 2017

We'd like to introduce ourselves,
We are not Dohm's, and cannot replace this mainstay.
However, many of the resorts and concierge services have been recommending us.
Here is one review for starters...
Captain Steve and the entire team did a great job transferring our family from the St. Thomas airport over the St John. From the moment we grabbed our bags at the airport their friendly staff quickly whisked us on our private taxi over to a private boat transfer where we had cool beverages waiting for us on a clean boat. It was equally as easy heading back from St John to St Thomas airport. This was way easier and safer than doing the public Red Hook boat ferry. We will use this service again next time we visit St John. Was worth every penny.
What makes us different?
Our level of service.
Why do our clients choose us?
Save Time & Avoid COVID
Some guests prefer relaxing at the beach over waiting for the ferry.
Others have a big group and want to keep together.
All our clients appreciate the ice cold beer, water, and soda to refresh.
We can get you to St. John in less time than it takes to eat a box of chocolates.
...Sure, it depends on how big that box is!
