My husband and I took the Fast Ferry to Freeport for an overnight trip. It's a long trip, very early in the morning but it was worth it. I don't think I would have enjoyed it if we didn't stay over as it is a long ride to be in Bahamas for only 5 hours. We figured it out that... More

Some are strictly passengers and small cargo. Others are larger for vehicles and such. You can back your car in and take it with you for additional fare. Upgraded ticket will get you air conditioning, TV, a free beverage. Small snack bar on board, bathrooms. Takes about 3 hours from Nassau to Eleuthera. Schedules to other islands vary depending on...

This is a great way to our clear aquamarine seas. When u arrive there u can walk around or rent a golf cart is better. I recommend the restaurant "Sip Sip" over looking the beach

We were booked and paid for a trip from Nassau to Harbour Island in Voyager Class. Got an email stating we were getting bumped, then a call stating they were switching to a larger vessel and we were not getting bumped. At 5:35pm the night before the trip, got an email from Aira stating to "call me at once" because... More

Both our boats departed and arrived on time. The vessels were large and comfortable. The views of Nassau Harbor, Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, and Harbour Island... More

This is a great alternative to taking a domestic flight when traveling the Bahamian islands, and in most cases its the cheapest option. We booked passage on FF to get to Harbor Island, which was a great choice because it has a day plan catering to people who want to see the famous island without having to spend the night... More
