Easy, short ride, but not necesary.

This is a short ferry ride from Port Lucaya Marketplace to Taino Beach. The beach is across the road from the marketplace so it's not really necessary and doesn't save much time... read more

This is a short ferry ride from Port Lucaya Marketplace to Taino Beach. The beach is across the road from the marketplace so it's not really necessary and doesn't save much time, but is just sort of nifty to take. It costs a few dollars per person, each way.

This service is always on time and reliable. Very inexpensive way to get back and forth between Taino Beach and Port Lucaya activities. Often the ferry is free if you are purchasing an activity in Port Lucaya.

I chuckle every time I read this as an "attraction". It's a mode of transportation. However, this laid back island doesn't have a ton to do, so it very well could be an "attraction". It was efficient and on time Also not bad priced, kids are half priced.

The Taino Beach ferry is extremely convenient. It runs every hour on the hour and is always on time. The last ferry from Port Lucaya back to Taino Beach leaves at 11.00 pm.The staff that run the ferry are very friendly and helpful and the cost is minimal.

The boats were always on time. Safe. Comfortable. Courteous service. Lots of money for a very short ride but cheaper than the taxi so welcome to the Bahamas.

This ferry is at the back of Pelican Bay resort and is free to resort guests. It's a fun ride to the beach!

A better way to travel than bus or taxi. Friendly, experienced and professional staff. Frequent departure times make them a pretty fast commute.
