Daily public ferry service has reopened from Anguilla's Blowing Point ferry terminal to the Marigot terminal on French St. Martin.
The ferry route between the two destinations has been a principal connection that dates back generations. But the onset of the pandemic brought a temporary halt to the service.
The current plan calls for three daily departures from each port. From Blowing Point, the departure times are 8:45 a.m., 11:45 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.; from Marigot, times are 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Fares are $30 one way for those 12 and over; $20 one way for children 11 years and younger. Tax for residents and day trippers is $11 for adults and $3 for children. Tax for nonresidents (visitors) is $28 for adults, $15 for kids five to 11 years and $3 for those two to four years of age.
Only vaccinated people are allowed on the ferry; proof of vaccination status and well as proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken no more than two days prior to arrival must be presented, and masks are mandatory in the ports and on the ferries.
