Advise for a plane and private boat Staniel Cay

Hiiii!!! Im from Puerto Rico. Im going with my 3 besties to Nassau in August. We are going to stay at the Atlantis but we want to go on Saturday to the pig beach, nurse sharks and sandbars. We are planning to catch a private flight to Staniel Cay early in the morning that day and return the same day at night. We want a private boat for 4 to see all the places. WE NEED HELP WITH THE PRIVATE FLIGHT AND BOAT, PLEASE. Also we want something safe cause we are all girls. Help!

You can call Staniel Cay Yacht Club to get referrals for private pilots. Be prepared to pay cash for your flight.

A private charter for up to 5 people from Nassau to Staniel is going to run you around $925, plus 12% VAT. This is the one way charge, so double it for the return flight to Nassau.

The thing to remember is that there are many illegal operations that offer charter services, but AVOID them liek the plague -- the are unlicensed, unregistered, uninspected and uninsured for carrying passengers for hire. There have been several fatal accidents recently by these illegal charters. One sure sign of an illegal charter is that they will ask for a cash payment! Do yourselves a favour and opt for the properly licensed and legal charter companies!

Then you'll need to find someone to take you out to the pigs from Staniel Cay. This is best arranged in advance so someone is waiting for your party and you're good to go.

For what it's worth, for around $1500, you can charter a small boat to take you for the day and go to all the places you mention. Makes way more sense than flying, as you've then got to leave Atlantis, drive 40 minutes each way to the airport -- wasting nearly 2 hours right there alone, when in 2 hours, you could be in the Exuma Cays!
