I just wanted to let people know that whatever a guide book or a local tells you about the days/times for the trips on the ferry are, CHECK WITH the OSPREY PEOPLE! Our relatively new guide book gave detailed schedules for the ferry...we were going to Carriacou for a few days, checked out of hotel, sitting at the ferry dock with all of our luggage, people at the hotel knew our plan as well as taxi driver, etc. and it turned out the ferry does not do as many return trips to Carriacou due to $$, number of riders. Many locals seemed to not know. Also, the trip took 3 hours one way, not 1.5 hours (soemone told us the faster boat was out of commission).
