Sandy Point ferry port in Abaco Islands connects you with Nassau in New Providence with a choice of up to 1 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Sandy Point to Nassau crossing is from 6 hours and the crossing is operated by Bahamas Ferries.
Perched on the southwestern peninsula of Abaco island in the Bahamas is the small community of Sandy Point. Surrounded on three sides by the crystalline blue North Atlantic sea and just a few miles from the popular Disney resort island of Castaway Cay, this rapidly-growing settlement is a popular destination for tourists hankering for tropical weather and velvet white beaches.
Ferries from Sandy Point are very limited. A single service provided by Bahamas Ferries leaves the port once a week to the Bahaman capital of Nassau, a relatively short trip down the western edge of the archipelago. The port itself consists of a concrete pier from which passengers can board incoming ships, but no other facilities can be found on-site.
Those driving to the port can follow the arcing Great Abaco Highway that covers most of the Island, from Coopers Town in the north to Rocky Point in the south. The road also connects the port to the Leonard M Thompson International Airport that services flights from Miami, Florida found on the eastern coast of the United States.
