FRS Caribbean adds to growing Bahamas portfolio

Date: 08 Nov 2016 12:12 Source: Expired

FRS Caribbean links Miami in Florida, USA, with Bimini, the westernmost district of the Bahamas in the Caribbean.

As one of the world’s most successful ferry operators, boasting an international network of routes, FRS expanded to the Caribbean and United States in the summer of 2016, purchasing Clipper Vacations and debuting FRS Caribbean. Both tourists and Miamians can hop over to beautiful Bimini, the closest Bahamian island to the United States, in just two hours, while the convenient FRS Caribbean timetable allows day-trippers a whole eight hours of fun in the sun.

The ship used for the crossing is San Gwann, a large, high-speed catamaran capable of holding over four hundred passengers, spanning a hundred and seventy feet in length, with a top speed of thirty eight knots. With a contemporary design, finished in the iconic red and white FRS colors, the on-board amenities include two well-equipped bars, a duty free shop selling a wide range of products and comfortable seats.

Directferries.com allows you to compare FRS Caribbean timetables and fares with alternative ferry operators: Bahamas Ferries, and Balearia Caribbean before deciding on the best option for your trip.
