Virgin Islands National Park Cruz Bay Visitor Finger Pier is Reopening for Public Usage

National Park Service

The Virgin Islands National Park Cruz Bay Visitor Finger Pier is reopening for public usage. This project was completed with funding through expanded amity fees collected by Virgin Islands National Park from Trunk Bay and park moorings. These fees are authorized by the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. The Virgin Islands National Park portion of the creek has been dredged and the finger pier has been reconstructed, once again allowing first-come first-served availability for public usage with the following stipulations:

Vessels are permitted 15 minutes for active loading and unloading of passengers.

The National Park Service bulkhead is no longer available for public use now that construction of the finger pier and dredging have been completed.

Overnight stay of dinghies is prohibited. Vessels left unattended over 24 hours are strictly prohibited and will be subject to fines and removal by the National Park Service.

Vessels heading to the British Virgin Islands are reminded to use the Port Authority dock when picking up more than 12 passengers

Please Note: Minor work will continue and may result in temporary closures; the NPS bulkhead will not be open for public use during temporary closures.
