A trip to Bahamas is always a good idea, but traveling from Florida to Bahamas by plane is an experience very few get the chance to do and you must if you get the chance. Imagine taking one of the many Florida to Bahamas flights, arriving within an hour to a tropical paradise away from the hustle of Miami. The seclusion and low-key environment of the Bahamas is to be desired in a destination consisting of a chain of islands. Park yourself in the warm sand, hang around in your swimwear with freshly fried conch shell (a Bahamian delicacy) in front of you. Take in the smell of the ocean and feel a nice sea breeze brushing your face. Breathe in the feeling of a Bahamas vacation in total relaxation.
The Bahamas is a collection of islands and cays sitting just off the coast of southeastern Florida. Flights to Bahamas aren’t as common as traveling by ferry from Florida, but they should be. The country is an exotic travel destination often visited by vacationing Americans and Europeans. Nassau, the capital, is one of the most visited places on the islands. However, even more, beauty awaits in the Exumas — a region of 365 of the 700-plus islands which make up the archipelago.
Consider a Bahamas Air Charter, private flight service from Florida to Bahamas with Bahamas Air Tours today. If you need more convincing, we’ve compiled a list of why you need to travel from Florida to Bahamas by plane rather than the all-too-common ferry which has major disadvantages to the service which we provide. Keep reading to build the anticipation.
Why you should consider traveling Florida to Bahamas by plane
Among the many advantages which are why traveling Florida to Bahamas by plane is a better option, we have taken the liberty to make a list of the few most notable below. Take a look!
1. Takes you further into the out islands
There is no other way to access more of the Bahamas in such a short period of time than Florida to Bahamas flights. Most islands and cays, especially in the beautiful and exotic Exuma Cays, aren’t accessible by large cruise ships or ferries. Sometimes, even a speed boat can’t get you to shore because the water becomes too shallow. Therefore, flying is the only way to access some remote islands.
2. Customize your schedule
With Bahamas Air Tours, we let you call the shots. This means you control where we go, when we go, and how long we stay. Our pilots are yours for the day and just along for the ride. We can present you with a recommended itinerary but you are free to change it up however you like. We will work with you to guarantee you get to see all you bargained for.
You would be amazed by the kind of itinerary you can draw out with all the time you have on our day tours to Bahamas. It is the kind of freedom you never get via the sea on a large tour ferry.
3. Avoid the crowded ferries
There is no other way to say it — Bahamas ferries can be a mess. Most of the time (certainly during peak season), ferries are overbooked and sometimes hard to find a seat. If traveling with a family, you would be lucky to find enough room to sit with the entire family.
Not only that, but the ferries are not a comfortable ride. Sometimes, it gets rough and other people around you suffer through seasickness. Sometimes, you will suffer from seasickness even if you generally do not on boats. There is nothing worse than feeling under the weather on your Bahamas vacation, much less, others around you spilling their guts in front of you onboard.
4. Skip the delays
Believe it or not, there are a significant amount of weather delays in the Bahamas (especially during the long hurricane season) due to sea conditions. Ferries are notorious for delaying trips due to even the slightest inclement weather. These delays take time off your day visit which means you will spend more time in a crowded ferry terminal or onboard and less time in your preferred destination.
Instead, travel Florida to Bahamas by plane with us and skip the queuing. With a small private party aboard, it is as simple as deciding when you want to go followed by boarding the aircraft for taking off.
5. Witness true beauty
It is said that no other region in the world looks more magnificent from space than the Bahamas islands. Astronauts have said it on multiple occasions. There is only one way to understand what they mean and that’s by seeing it from their perspective.
OK — maybe not from space, but Bahamas Air Tours will give you a pretty decent bird’s eye view from the sky! We believe the contrasting green and turquoise blue with white sand beach scenes need to be appreciated and it is hard to appreciate it fully from sea level.
6. Experience luxury
It is quite a difference to fly on a private plane while you island hop rather than crowded ferries. Aboard our nine-seat Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft, everyone is guaranteed a window seat to witness the magic beneath them.
Not only that, but the windows are the largest viewing windows of any aircraft in the world. You won’t quite understand the difference of comfort until you have stepped aboard your very own private plane while island hopping through the Caribbean.
7. Learn from trained guides
All of our guides have spent extensive time in the Bahamas, making them leading experts of your vacation destination. On a ferry, you would be lucky to find anyone around with the least bit of knowledge about your surroundings. You will be surprised by the number of facts, history, and knowledge you will gain from our pilots who are trained to double as your day tour guide.
There’s very rarely a question they can’t answer, so ask away!
8. Spend more time in the Bahamas
Do the math — on a ferry from Miami to Nassau, you are likely to take 3 hours or more on each leg of the journey (there and back). That’s six hours of round trip travel. On our Miami to Bahamas day trip, you will likely have only a little over two hours of travel time to Nassau and back.
That saves around four hours on your day trip to Bahamas. Imagine all that you can see and do during four hours of gained time on your day trip to the exotic islands in the Bahamas. If we were you, we would maximize the time spent on the beach during your day trip by flying to the Bahamas.
