How to get to Chat N Chill from Grand Isle Resort?

We are going back to Exuma for the third time now, but the first two times we didn't leave the resort (Sandals). This time we are being more creative and staying at the Grand Isle as well as bringing our small kids!!

With that said, we plan to get out a little more this time, so how does one get from the Grand Isle resort to the Chat N Chill bar on Stocking Island? Is there such a thing as a water taxi that gets you there, how does it work (do you just call it ahead of time?), how much does it cost roughly, and how long is the ride?

Thank you!!!

You can rent a boat if you would like to have the freedom to go where and when you want. You would have to keep it at Minns though.

There is a water taxi from the dock in George Town and they pick up from Peace and Plenty as well. 'Elvis' is the captain and I know someone will chime in with his contact info.

CnC has a taxi from the old houseboat dock area by the Government Dock. Sort of behind the straw market in George Town. But if you don't want to hassle with getting a cab to town or renting from Minns, the concierge at Grand Isle can easily arrange a boat to pick you up right there and take you all around. I think they have a deal with a few guys in town. They are really helpful at the desk there at Grand Isle and basically anything you want, they'll arrange, for no extra fee or anything.

FYI -- if you have little kids and want to explore, you should take a boat up to the swimming pigs and iguanas and lunch at Staniel Cay. They'll love it & the pigs just had babies.

You can also rent a car for the day (about $75) and drive into Georgetown. We prefer that because you can stop at the beautiful beaches along the way - and also get groceries at the only grocery store (which is located in Georgetown). Cabs one way are about the same as renting a car for the day. Whatever you prefer, but you can take the water taxi from the pier in Georgetown. Ask for Elvis :)

There is more than one grocery store, we went to 3 while we were there but Exuma Market is probably the "one" you are referring to.
