The Islands of The Bahamas
Only a few miles off the south Florida coast, the Bahamas is much closer than other Caribbean destinations, the islands of The Bahamas can be reached quickly either by air or by sea. Direct flights are available from the US to Nassau, Freeport, and certain Out Islands. If a direct flight is not available, a quick stopover in Miami is easy and perfectly viable.
Boaters wishing to visit The Islands Of The Bahamas, should make your first port of call at a recognized Port of Entry. Should you arrive by boat at one of the many Bahamas marinas, clear your boat / yacht by contacting Bahamas Customs and Immigration departments and arrange to have officers visit your vessel at the marina.
