Frequently asked questions about the ferry service

Can we make reservations for the Vieques ferry?- Unfortunately not yet. RESERVATIONS are not accepted for the passenger ferry. If you are taking a vehicle, reservations are required for the Cargo Ferry, make your reservations ahead of time and arrive early. Phone numbers are listed below.  For more information call

  • Toll Free 800.981.2005

The phone rings and rings and no one answers? Does that mean they’re closed? – The people working at the port, in the Vieques ferry and the Fajardo port, will rarely answer the phone to take your reservation. Unfortunately some of the Puerto Rican Government Offices simply don’t hire enough people to do the job right. (Get there early)

Can we rent a car in Puerto Rico and bring it to Vieques on the ferry? If you have a rental car in Puerto Rico, check with the car rental company, most car rental agencies will not allow you to take the car off the main island of Puerto Rico.
