It's a ferry. Can't really set your expectations too high. It does its job though -- on time, gets ya from point A to point B.

Albury's Ferry Service is the main ferry for getting to and from many of the bigger Cays. The service is frequent and it sticks to the timetable. The boats are functional - not too comfortable. The cost of a round trip is now $30 so it certainly isn't a cheap service although if you are making multiple trips there are... More

Boats are clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. Ferries run on time and the price is reasonable.

Flew into Marsh Harbor, easy and quick taxi ride (who stopped by liquor store for us) to Albury's Ferry which gave us a quick 20minute ride to Elbow Cay. Friendly staff, they helped haul all of our luggage and liquor onto and off of the boat. Basic ferry but a beautiful ride on the water to Elbow Cay. Friends of... More

nice people, nice trip, wish it went more places,b ut love the trip- this is not a place for 100% sight see- this is a way to get to one place to another. It has luggage area, but it is more like airport travel- this is not sunset cruise style

Everyone in my group had the chance to take the ferry from Marsh Harbour to Nippers on Great Guyana. I couldn't go because I couldn't negotiate the three step ladder needed to board the boat with my crutches. Too bad they don't have an easier way to board. The rest of my party enjoyed the ride.

Albury Ferry service was impressive in the fact that it was always on time, with friendly and helpful staff. The check in process was effective and straight forward. I was not impressed by the 5% Credit Card service charge, VISA charges 3.5% in the Bahamas so if you are going to charge a fee, I believe you should pass that... More

the ferries between Marsh Harbour and Hope Town run almost on the dot several times a day, everyday but at $19 one way, it is not cheap. They had stopped the service directly between Guana Cay and Hope Town which is what we needed so arranged a private charter which was cheaper for four of us.

Old engines, old boats, awful diesel fumes, and VERY expensive. The tickets keep getting more expensive, and the service keeps getting worse. But as it stands, there is no other choice.
