Cruise Ship Travel

Cruise-ship passengers arrive at Freeport Harbour, which has a clever Bahamian-style look, extensive cruise-passenger terminal facilities, and an entertainment-shopping village with various bars and restaurants. The harbor lies about 10 minutes west of Freeport. Taxis, limos, and tour operators meet all cruise ships. Two passengers are charged $20 and $27 for trips to Freeport and Lucaya, respectively. Fare is $30 to Taino Beach. The price per person drops $5 for larger groups. It's customary to tip taxi drivers 15%.

Grand Bahama's flat terrain and straight, well-paved roads can make for good scooter riding. Helmets are required and provided. It's cheaper to rent a car than to hire a taxi. Automobiles, jeeps, and vans can be rented at the Grand Bahama International Airport. Some agencies provide free pickup and delivery service to the cruise-ship port and Freeport and Lucaya. Keep in mind that drivers drive on the left side of the road in the Bahamas, so remember to always look right before pulling into traffic.
