Winston Chin has been employed with the Twin Island ferry for the past six months. He  recently conducted an “orientation run” of the refurbished ferry for Montserrat, now called, Codrington Arrow. The inter-service ferry, which was the only operating ferry that provided services for Montserrat under a different name little over a year ago.

“I came here to get back the old Ferry which is rebranded and renamed Codrington Arrow inter-service to resume the Montserrat – St. John’s service,” captain Chin said.

He also conveyed that the inter-service ferry would be offering services to Barbuda as well. “If there are visitors or islanders who want to do St. John’s and Barbuda, that can be accommodated as soon the service is back on track.”

According to Captain Chin Codrington Arrow will be replacing the current ferry Carib Queen. “But,” he said, “what will happen is that the Carib Queen will not just disappear off the radar just like that, it will be used as a stand by vessel so that Montserrat’s service will be guaranteed as advertised.”

The current ferry schedule will not change however, but Chin said once the passenger load increases and there is demand for the service,” the service will be adapted to the passenger load and the requirements of the passengers.This service does not go into immediate effect. The captain conveyed that in order to resume providing services to Montserrat they would have to wait for the Carib Queen to finish their contract with Montserrat.

Captain Chin also expressed that comfort is guaranteed with the re-branded ferry since the air condition unit is redone and there are qualified people on board who will take good care of the passengers.  Extra crew has been added in the cabin to ensure that persons travelling with the ferry service will be well taken care of. “We have more dedicated persons on board now and I think the Twin Island Ferry Service Ltd. Is going to ensure when they return or resume the service it’s up to par and even better than before.”
