Ferries (from Nassau)

You can take the ferry to Eleuthera from Nassau instead of taking the short flight from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale or Nassau.

Bahamas Ferries offers service to Harbour Island, Three Island Dock, Current, Spanish Wells, Governor’s Harbour, and Rock Sound.
We would d like to point out that, in comparison to a quick flight, the ferry journey takes significantly longer and costs nearly the same. Unless you have no other options, we highly recommend opting for a flight.
