Other than plane, what are the methods of transportation from Grand Bahama Island to Nassau? How long does it take and what is the cost?

Thanks in advance.

1. Re: From Grand Bahama Island to Nassau

The mailboat runs 2x a week and takes about 9 hours. There are no other options besides a charter. There are 90 miles between the two islands in open seas. No ferries or quick links.

The mailboat is somewhat unreliable.. depending on weather, tide and product loading time. I've been delayed more than 30 hours traveling by mailboat.
