Getting to Anguilla

You’ve got two options for getting to Anguilla: short flights from other Caribbean islands or a ferry. Our recommendation for families: the air service. While the ferry is fast and comfortable, weather conditions can sometimes make it a choppy ride.

Air Service

Air travelers arrive at Wallblake airport either by American Eagle from American’s hub in San Juan, Puerto Rico (the route used by most American travelers) or by connection from nearby Saint Maarten (either plane or ferry) or other island (there are connections from St. Thomas in the USVI, Antigua, and St. Kitts.

Service from Sint Maarten is available on WINAIR, Tel. 599/545-4273, Fax 599/545-3544, Toll-free 800/634-4907.

Additional service to Anguilla is available from LIAT, Tel. 1-888-844-LIAT (5428) or 268/497-5000, with daily flights from Antigua, St. Kitts, and St. Thomas.

Tyden Air, Tel. 800/842-0261, 264/497-0261, or 264/497-2719, Fax 264/497-3079, has charter service anywhere in the Caribbean and day tours to St. Barts, Nevis, and Virgin Gorda as well as daily flights to Saint Maarten. Tyden also offers flights to St. Thomas and St. Kitts. Air Anguilla, Tel. 264/497-2643, offers flights to Saint Maarten. Flying time from San Juan is one hour.

Ferry Service

Visitors also arrive by ferry from St. Martin. The 20-30 minute ride from Marigot on the French side of St. Martin to Blowing Point, Anguilla costs US$10 each way (plus a US $3 departure fee each way). The trip takes 20 to 25 minutes.

To take the ferry to Anguilla, stop by the open air ferry station on the north end of the market in Marigot. Go up to the window, pay your $2 departure tax, and sign up on the manifest sheet, listing your name, passport number, and nationality. The ferry fee will be collected on board.
