This is a great service for the Hotel and Resort. No need to worry about driving when there is this service. Plus the driver always has a good story to tell.

We e-biked to the beach. It was clean, peaceful. It's a great place to just relax. The local beer helped in the relaxation.

The Ferry from Port Lucaya drops you at the marina side of Flamingo Bay Hotel and then a short walk to Freeport Adventures.
