The Bahamas Express High Speed Ferry!



In need of a fun day or two out of town?

A high-speed ferry service is now operating out of Port Everglades, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Round-trip runs are scheduled every day, with the exception of Wednesdays, to Freeport, Grand Bahamas.

Long in planning, this new service accommodates both visitors to the Bahamas, as well as providing transportaion to island residents who frequently travel to Florida for much needed shopping.


The service is provided by a Spanish ferry company called Balearia, who operate 21 routes, using 15 ships, throughout the Mediterranean. It is in partnership with The Capo Group, a South Florida company.

The Bahamas Ferry departs Port Everglades at 10:00am and return at 7:30pm from Freeport. Don’t worry – you can spend more than a day in Freeport if you like!
