How about a change of country the next time you’re headed to Florida?  It’s possible to take a day trip to the Bahamas by ferry.  In some cases, less than it would cost to fly. The high-speed “Balearia Bahamas Express” travels from Fort Lauderdale to the city of Freeport on Grand Bahama, one of many Bahamian islands with British roots. Lucaya Beach (named for the original Bahamas inhabitants), in the Freeport suburbs, is easy to get to via the many vans waiting at the ferry terminal. The beach — more like Florida during Spring Break than another country — is pretty, though packed with tourists on a spring weekday. Food at Lucaya ranges from Domino’s pizza to Agave, an eatery that serves tasty burgers made from conch, a local shellfish.

Unlike Nassau, the busy capital of the Bahamas, downtown Freeport is little more than a bunch of strip malls and a charming little open-air market.

The first is a new ferry service launched by Bahamas Express that travels from Fort Lauderdale to Grand Bahama island.  Since time and money are prime considerations for travel, let’s take a look at both to see how the new ferry service stacks up with flying. The 76 miles sailing takes approximately two and a half hours, while a non-stop flight takes 55 minutes.  When you factor in the need to arrive at the airport early for an international check in, the long security lines, and the overall frustration of air travel, the transport time may just be a wash.

Everyone was tired; if it felt like we had really been away from home, it’s because we had. We were inquiring if once we are there there is some sort of connection from Freeport to Bimini via ferry.
There has been some confusion surrounding our post to update that ferry service was once again running, so just wanted to make everyone aware that we are unable to assist with ferry bookings. Although the larger ship has cabins, theya€™re available for comfort on the trip, not as overnight accommodations. If you should need a hotel room at the resort, or slip at the marina, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
