You are responsible for having the correct documents so make sure to check with the consulate of the countries you plan to visit before you travel. For other nationalities an ESTA is required and for visa requirements we recommend using VisaHQ to find out if you require any visas to enter the country - www.visahq.co.uk
Getting to your marina
The Best option is to fly to Marsh Harbour followed by a short taxi ride. Alternatively you can opt to use the Bahamas Fast Ferry Services over to Marsh Harbour from Nassau; available once or twice a week. Check the company's webpage for details: https://www.bahamasferries.com/. If you wish to fly direct to the marina, Charter a private seaplane with Tropic Ocean Airways from South Florida and fly directly to Marsh Harbour, where your yacht is located.
The taxi fare from the airport to the base is approximately $15 USD for the first 2 persons; every additional person is $3 per person. This will prevent you sharing an open-air cab or large van with other travellers where the marina is the last stop.
