Can you clarify dates  please.

 

Am I suppose to fly in on 4/23, then leave on 4/24.  Or do we fly in on 4/24, then go to the boat on 4/24?  What time does it leave.

 

Same on departure, do we leave on 5/1 or 5/2.

 

Lastly, how do we get from airport to the boat?  if by taxi, can you clarify the name of the marina, assume the boat is Bahama Aggressor, thanks.?

Can you clarify dates  please.

 

Am I suppose to fly in on 4/23, then leave on 4/24.  Or do we fly in on 4/24, then go to the boat on 4/24?  What time does it leave.

 - You fly in 4/24 and arrive by taxi from the airport ($75 by taxi so planning to share with other arriving members is highly recommended) no later than 6PM when the boat departs but not before 4PM as the crew are still provisioning after the last trip (24 hour turnaround). ask the driver to take you to the Bahamas Agressor boat in Old Bahama Bay. Let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to fly in on arrival day or fly out on departure day 5/1 so we can help with an overnight hotel!

Same on departure, do we leave on 5/1 or 5/2.

 - Depart the boat by 8;00AM on 5/1, usually straght back to the airport but if other members have afternoon departures there may be time for shopping and a little sight seeing. Such details on trips like this are usually ironed out between members during evening cocktails after a day of diving is complete.

Lastly, how do we get from airport to the boat?  if by taxi, can you clarify the name of the marina, assume the boat is Bahama Aggressor, thanks.?

 - Again there are small van taxis as well as large Turista sedans to take you to Old Bahama Bay resort, ask specifically for the Bahamas Aggressor dock. Each way is about $75USD so we encourage members to use the subforum to create topics comparing arrival and departure flights well before the trip begins.

Jerry here is a relevant selection from the Trip Details Topic #1 in this trip subforum, Kamala may wish to elaborate a bit when she replies...

 

Arrival and Departure / Baggage / Group Hotel and Transfers:

Guests will fly in and out of Grand Bahama International Airport, (airport code is FPO).

  • Transfers are not included. It is about 30 - 45 minutes taxi ride to “Old Bahama Bay”. The cost is approximately $75.
  • The Bahamas Aggressor operates out of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island for the Tiger Beach trips. The yacht will dock in and out of Old Bahama Bay Resort.
  • Airport transfers are not included with the cost of your charter. At the end of the charter, the Captain will assist with organizing transportation to the airport or hotel if you are extending your stay.
  • Please make your own way to the Bahamas Aggressor anytime 4 – 6 pm. The yacht will depart for the first anchorage at 6 pm.

Jerry

Hey Jerry... let's see if I can reply to each of your questions...

 

 

1.  Am I suppose to fly in on 4/23, then leave on 4/24.  Or do we fly in on 4/24, then go to the boat on 4/24?   - You should arrive NO LATER THAN 4/24 by no later than 2-3pm That gives you 60 mins to land and clear customs and find the taxi and 45 mins to get to the hotel where the boat is docked as the boat DEPARTS AT 6PM and begins boarding at 4pm.

 

NOTE: Since weather is not an issue flying in a day early as a buffer is not as critical. HOWEVER if flights are still reduced in April then you may need to or wish to arrive the 23rd as a buffer. UNLESS YOU BUY SPECIFIC LIVEABOARD RIDER INSURANCE ... most dive insurance does not cover the cost of a missed liveaboard if you have started traveling. If you miss it due to injury, illness etc then it's usually covered but if you in transit and miss it then its not usually covered. Please verify this with your policy holder. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND DIVE ASSURE as they are most proactive for DIVE INSURANCE and TRIP INSURANCE. REMEMBER THAT  TRIP Insurance covers everything on land and DIVE Insurance covers everything in water.

 

2. What time does it leave. - Boat boards 4-6pm and departs 6pm

 

3. Same on departure, do we leave on 5/1 or 5/2. - This is based upon the flights you can find. We get off the boat on 5/1 EARLY so you should try for a flight on 5/1 to avoid add'l hotel fees

 

4. Lastly, how do we get from airport to the boat?  - Transfers are not included. It is about 30 - 45 minutes taxi ride to “Old Bahama Bay”. The cost is approximately $75.

 

5. if by taxi, can you clarify the name of the marina, - It docks at the Old Bahamas Bay Hotel's Marina so tell the driver to take you to that hotel.

 

6.  assume the boat is Bahama Aggressor, thanks.? - YES Aggressor
