Those who arrive by boat will sail into the protected bay between Harbour Island and Eleuthera where they can choose from three marinas.
Harbour Island Club and Marina
This is the newer marina located on the southern end of the island. It offers modern power centers at each slip with 115/220 power and water and automatic dock lights that turn on at dusk, off at dawn.
Showers, a freshwater pool, and laundry services are available.
A very pleasant bar overlooking the dock is a great spot for lunch or watching the sun go down. There’s no grocery store or dinner service, but a taxi or rented golf cart can take you the mile and a half into town.
Valentine’s Resort and Marina
Right in the center of town, Valentine’s offers 39 slips accommodating boats up to 160′ with 12′ draft. Hotel rooms and a bar and restaurant rim a swimming pool just steps from the dock.
Romora Bay Marina
Smaller, and half way between the other two marinas. Rates are $2.50 per foot on dockage and electric is 65 cents per KWH, and water is $20/day.
Arriving by Ferry from Nassau
The Bo Hengy ferry will bring you from Nassau in the morning and return you in the afternoon. The 3-hour trip can sometimes be faster than making airport connections. Call 242 322-8185 or visit their website at www.bahamasferries.com.
