About Traveling to the Bahamas…?

Question by Fizzy5xx: About Traveling to the Bahamas…?
I already have another 2 questions about the Bahamas but I have another! Is there a boat or ferry between the islands? I would like to stay on Nassau but my family is unable to fly. I live in New Hampshire. I know there is a boat to Grand Bahama Island from Florida, but I need a way to get to Nassau from there. I am going to stay there 5 days, but I don’t mind having to travel for a few days. I am allowing 2-3 days travel there, and 2-3 days travel back and 5 days in between. And advice is appreciated

The answer here is NO. There are no ferries between Nassau and Grand Bahamas Island.

There’s a mailboat that goes 2x a week (this would not be helpful since you’re only staying 5 days) and the mailboat takes 9 hours to travel one way. You would just get to Nassau and have to turn around later that same evening for another 9 hour ride.

Why is your family unable to fly??? is it more that they are unwilling to fly??

here’s the info for the mailboat.

Don’t trust posted schedules.. call them.. the schedules change week to week. Day to day.

Traveling to the Bahamas. Need advice?

Question by nite_angelica: Traveling to the Bahamas. Need advice?
I’ve never been, so please excuse my ignorance if anything is incorrect.

We want to go to one of the Bahama islands, and we are considering June. I was looking online and a site said that it is considered “tacky” to wear beach wear (shorts, tshirts, etc) to anyplace other than the beach. It also said that casinos and nicer restaurants require for the men to wear a jacket and the women to dress appropriately. Here are my questions:

1. Are there islands other than Nassau and Grand Bahama (maybe I’m wrong on the Grand Bahama). We have to dress up every day and are looking for a casual beach environment. Shorts, tshirts, flip flops, etc. Is this not the destination for us?

2. How is the best way to get there? We don’t want to take a cruise. Maybe stay in Florida and take a boat over to stay for 2 or 3 days?

Thanks for any input.

You don”t have to “dress up”, but if you are barely covered, you will be considered tacky.
Shorts, NOT short shorts are acceptable with a casual shirt most places, long, light weight cotton pants & skirts will help keep you from sun burn. Capri length pants can keep you from burning the back of your legs on a too hot seat. If you aren’t at the beach or by the pool, cover up. I take a t-shirt cotton dress to pull on over my swim suit.

Here is what the Atlantis resort says
Most restaurants do not have a specific dress code. However guests are asked to wear cover- ups in public areas such as restaurants and hotel lobbies. Fine dining restaurants, bars and nightlife venues do not allow flip flops, shorts or hats.

I take a crinkle cotton long skirt, my jeweled sandals & my fancy pedicure & I’m good to go anywhere. Guyaberas or Hawaiian style shirts are acceptable just about anywhere. Ignore the fanciest places & relax.

You can fly or take a ferry from Florida
