Consisting of over 700 islands across the north Caribbean, the Bahamas is the perfect holiday destination, no matter what time of year you are looking to travel. From the capital city of Nassau, where you can experience all the local culture, as well as the colonial architecture that you may expect from the Bahamas, to many other destinations, including Harbour Island, Spanish Wells, and Freeport, where you can find anything you may need on your trip. From crystalline waters, to golden sandy beaches, to the world’s longest underwater cave system, there are many activities here to occupy you, with water sports, gardens, and the islands’ rich histories, so you will always find something new to discover.
Nassau is the main hub where most ferries depart to countless other destinations, giving you access to not only the iconic mainland and thriving city, but also the much quieter and more relaxed surrounding islands. There are also ferries to Freeport, which provides access to the popular and sunny island of Grand Bahama, and there are ferries running not only between the Bahamas, but also back to the mainland of Florida.

There are many different ferry ports across the Bahamas, all with different types of facilities and access, and this all depends on where the ports are, and whether or not they are a major ferry hub. For example, the ferry port at Nassau has many facilities, as this is located in the middle of a major city, and also provides ferries to other major destinations, whereas the ferry port as Spanish Wells is much smaller and has almost no facilities, as this is more of a fishing town than an actual ferry port.
