The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) 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.

In addition, all users of the dock will be charged a $1.00 per foot, per day docking fee per VIPA’s Marine Tariff.
