How to Get to Scrub Island Via Commercial Airlines

The quickest way to get to the island is to fly into the Terrence B. Lettsome (EIS) airport on Beef Island, Tortola from San Juan, Puerto. Beginning June 1, 2023, American Airlines will offer a direct flight from Miami (MIA) to Beef Island on Tortola, BVI. Many major airlines from the U.S. connect in San Juan to Seabourne/Silver Airways, Cape Air, Liat, for the short flight to Beef Island. Your last, and fun leg, is a five-minute taxi ride to the dock at Trellis Bay where the resort’s private water taxi picks you up for the 10-minute scenic ride to the resort. (Note: We need your arrival time at the airport to ensure someone is waiting for you outside terminal, after you get your baggage).  Alternately, you can fly into St. Thomas on several direct flights from the United States, take a 45-minute ferry to the Customs Office in Road Town on Tortola, then take a 30-40 minute taxi ride to Trellis Bay and board the resort ferry to the private island. HOWEVER, we strongly recommend the direct flight to/from EIS on Tortola due to pandemic and COVID-19 testing requirements at this time.

For flights to/from the British Virgin Islands, we strongly recommend you contact The Moorings’ in-house flight specialists at 866-649-2003. They successfully book flights for thousands of their charter customers.

How to Get to Scrub Island Resort on Private Charter Flights or Water Taxis

Scrub Island Resort also offers an exclusive private charter flight with Fly The Whale, offering seamless connection between San Juan International Airport (SJU) and Beef Island, Tortola (EIS) where you can skip security lines and breeze through customs with personal service. This direct service is available from November through April. Or you can travel directly to the resort from St. Thomas via Dolphin Water Taxi. Note, you will always need to clear customs when you first arrive in the BVI Territory. We look forward to you joining our BVI sailing charters and lessons!
