“Fast ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Good ride fair price $3.00. Young guide tells you all about Paradise Island and the surrounding properties. Of course all the rich and famous. Oprah etc. Then wants a tip when he is done and will stand there till you do. Kind of awkward.

“cheap and quick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

A good service only spoilt by confusing information on their website. It completely changed our plans. The staff at the booking office had a strange attitude to travellers and were not very helpful.

“Its gets you there”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a nice, cheap way to get across to Paradise Island and then back to Nassau. The boats are inexpensive, but look like your parents old jalopy! The owners usually give a nice narrative on the trip, but having to hotwire the boat to get it to start is more the norm than not! That being said.....for some reason, these feel a bit safer than a taxi!

“First class transportation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Get to where you're going in comfort and style. The Ferry service is extremely reliable, and a beautiful way to enjoy islands from a boat.
