Traveling in and around the islands of the Bahamas, and specifically Harbour island in the Bahamas, is truly an adventure. These commercial vessels from Nassau to the out islands, are mail boats (cargo freighters); and are a great way to get from island to island on a budget. If you willing for some more adventure on your travels, consider this a great option! It’s not the fastest or most comfortable way to go but it’s definitely cheaper and more interesting! If you think the mailboat is something you would like to experience, make sure you check with the Dock Master’s office at (242) 393-1064 to verify departure times and availability.
