Ferries to Green Turtle Cay

Ferries are an important transportation option in the Bahamas

The only way to get to Green Turtle Cay, spare sailing your own boat, is by ferry. Although there are several main ferry services that serve the Abacos, only one regularly travels to Green Turtle Cay, and another makes the trip once in awhile. It is still a good idea to learn about all of the ferry services in case island hopping sounds like an adventure.

Mail Boats

Mail Boats are another ferry service that travels directly to Green Turtle Cay; however, this service is more often used by tourists looking for day trips to other parts of the Bahamas than it is by people arriving here. The Mail Boats are run by the government and offer passenger, mail, and freight transfer throughout the islands. They are slow thanks to their size and weight, but also inexpensive, which makes them much more attractive. Take a look at the schedule below, where you'll find that the mail boats commonly sail throughout the Abacos, Acklins, Andros, the Berry Islands, Bimini, Cat Island, Eleuthera, the Exumas, Grand Bahama, Harbour Island, Inagua, Long Island, Mayaguana, New Providence, and San Salvador. Give the Dockmaster's Office a call at 242-393-1064 if you have any further questions.
