Default Speedys' in Tortola

Has anyone taken the Speedy's transportation in Tortola over to the Baths? I have contacted them and they said they leave around 9 a.m. and they can have you back to the ship area even if you take the l2:30 transportation. They said it is 30 minutes on the ferry and 20 minutes on land. Our ship leaves at 2 p.m.

This is cutting it awfully close. The ferry ride is closer to 45 minutes (it varies somewhat due to ocean conditions). Also what if that scheduled ferry time is cancelled or the ferry breaks down (they have PLENTY of signs inidicating that they DON"T guarantee return ferry times). I love the Baths and have taken the ferry over to VG BUT only when I knew I had A LOT of time to get back. For example the last time we were there we took the 8:50AM ferry with Smith's (it actually left at 9AM) and returned on the 2PM ferry. Our ship was not leaving until 5PM.
