FERRY BOAT TRAVEL WANTED

While the popularity of Bahama yacht charters has increased in recent years, the availability of reasonably-priced airfare to the island nation has stymied many a potential luxury yacht charter customer.  Flights from South Florida to the Bahamas are often more expensive than coast to coast flights across the United States.  In addition, some clients are reluctant to fly to their destination. They want an alternative in a ferry boat.  VOILA!

NEW OPTION AVAILABLE

Fortunately a new alternative to traveling to and from the Bahamas has been unveiled.

 

BALERIA BAHAMAS EXPRESS

On December 16th, Balèaria Bahamas Express introduced inaugural high speed ferry service between Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) and Freeport (Grand Bahama).

 

PINAR DEL RIO FERRY BOAT

The 74 meter ferry Pinar del Rio cruises at 32 knots.  She makes the 76 mile crossing in 2.5 hours.

The service runs daily, except on Wednesday.  The boat has a convenient schedule that allows passengers from the USA to return on the same day. In specific, after spending the day on Grand Bahama Island.

 

FERRY RATES

Pricing starts at $49.50 per person, one way.  In addition, first class seating is available.  It costs $90 per person each way. Local taxes are extra.

 

SPANISH COMPANY

Spanish-based Balèaria specializes in the transportation of people in the Mediterranean.  They have nearly 1000 employees. There are 15 ships in operation.  The company ferried almost 3 million passengers in 2010.

The company is also working on establishing service from South Florida to Bimini in 2012.
