Crooked and Acklins Islands

Boat Travel

Mail boats that bring supplies to the island each week make an adventurous mode of transportation. You'll ride with groceries, large and small appliances, automobiles, and sometimes even livestock. All boats depart from Potter's Cay in Nassau. Schedules change frequently. M/V Vi Nais sails Wednesday to Acklins Island, Crooked Island, and Long Cay, returning Sunday (30 hours; $90 one-way).

Ferry service between Cove Landing, Crooked Island, and Lovely Bay, Acklins Island usually operates twice daily on varying schedules between 9 and 4.
