Visit the island of Grand Bahama with ease from Fort Lauderdale when you purchase your round-trip ferry ticket in advance. It takes about 2.5 hours to reach Freeport Harbour aboard the ‘Balearia Caribbean,' and you have about five hours there before the ferry returns to Fort Lauderdale in the evening.
