This ferry runs from Tiano Beach to Port Lucaya. The boat captains are wonderful. My family and I are outgoing to say the least. The captains of the boat joined along in our fun. No stuffed shirts here. The ferry runs like clockwork as well.

Title says it all. The ferry got us safely from point A to point B but they were just simply rude and sometimes didn't show up at scheduled times.

Loved this ferry ride, only one day out of seven it was having repairs and was not operating. We would have had to pay $12 each way per person by taxi, so just waited until it was fixed, then it was $6 roundtrip per person....More

The captian Ishmeal was great.... so accomidating and pleasent. I stayed in Port Lucaya and the beach is not the best. But, Taino just minutes away on the water taxi is most excellent! I love the beach!

The ferry is great when it's working. However, it seems to often not be working. To make matters worse, they don't post a sign, so you could just be waiting for a ferry that will never come.

As of 3/11 the ferry was going to be out of commission with an engine problem Duration at least one week. If staying on opposite side of channel ferry was the best way to get to Port of Lucaya. Dampen way for transportation.

The Ferry from Port Lucaya drops you at the marina side of Flamingo Bay Hotel and then a short walk to Freeport Adventures.

Taino Beach is the beach and Junkanoo Beach Club is a restaurant and tourist attraction on the beach with great marketing.
