The Abacos Travel Guide

Boat and Ferry Travel

The Legacy mail boat leaves Potter's Cay, Nassau on Tuesday for Marsh Harbour and Green Turtle Cay, returning to Nassau on Thursday. Each one-way journey takes about 10 hours and costs $60 per person. The Sealink leaves Nassau on Friday and Sunday mornings for Sandy Point, at the southern tip of Great Abaco, and returns to Nassau on Fridays and Sundays. For details, call the Dockmaster's Office.

A good system of public ferries allows you to reach even the most remote cays.

If you don't want to be bound by the somewhat limited ferry schedule, rent a small boat. The best selections are at Marsh Harbour, Treasure Cay, Hope Town, and Green Turtle Cay.
