“Fun quick ride between downtown Nassau and Harborside/Atlantis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Cheap round trip ticket gets you between downtown Nassau (cruise ship docks & shopping) and the Harborside/Atlantis resorts. Bring a few extra bucks for a tip for your "guide" on the ferry ride - he will provide a mini tour on your 10 minute ride and solicit tips when you leave. But they are all fun & funny guys. If you're adventurous you could use this to get you from your cruise ship dock to the Atlantis but you still have to walk a little or take a shuttle when you come up from under the bridge. Unless you're familiar with the area probably best for cruisers to take a taxi to Atlantis.

“Fast Ferry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We took this on a Saturday day trip to Spanish Wells and Harbour Island, boat is clean and fast, we paid a little extra for the first class cabin upgrade. Air conditioned, waitress serving drinks, tvs, etc. Next time, I would go over from Nassau on Saturday, stay in "Briland" and return on Sunday...nice weekend getaway.

“Excellent service connecting islands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Easy on, easy off . We took a car, it was easy getting on and off, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I wish this service could be extended to more of the islands.

“Not a luxury ride”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The drivers looked about 16 yrs old. We were slammed into the wall when trying to park ferry to let us off. It is very run down, but it got me from point A to B and back.
