A trip from Florida to Bahamas can be as spectacular or as ordinary as you make it. As you dream of fluffy white sand beaches and water like glass, you can either arrive to the Bahamas tired and sick or in-style. Though Miami to Bahamas travel time can take as little as thirty minutes, the views from a Bahamas cruise from Florida by air are incomparable to anything in the world. Staring out of your window seat aboard our private Cessna Grand Caravan, you see the glistening turquoise sea, underwater coral, white-sand beaches, and green, tall palms swaying in the wind. A flight from Florida to Bahamas is guaranteed to be a highlight of your trip before you ever even arrive. We can help you make sure you get the best views on your way.
The Bahamas are an archipelago nation to the southeast of Florida’s peninsula. The chains of islands — many of them — over 700 islands, in fact, have their own cultures and traditions making each of them unique. Many of them are left untouched, unvisited, and unexplored. However, the beauty remains.
Most of these islands are found in what is known as the out islands. When flying from Florida to Bahamas, you will get to experience the Exuma Cays from a bird’s eye view which many astronauts have agreed is the most beautiful place on Earth. The Exumas are a region of 365 islands which are known for being wilder, quieter, and sometimes entirely new environments.
Bahamas Air Tours will take you on a Miami to Bahamas day trip you won’t soon forget. A day trip to Bahamas via our Bahamas air charter means unparalleled views that not many Bahamas vacation-goers ever get to see.
Below, we have highlighted our services and why taking flights to Bahamas with us is an experience all in itself. Put the romance back into this all-too corporate world of flying and book your experience today.
Florida to Bahamas: Putting the value back into flying
It is no secret that in today’s age of big commercial airlines and business jetting, the beauty of being transported through the air has lost its romanticism. It doesn’t have to be like that anymore, though. Traveling Florida to Bahamas on our Bahamas air charter will revitalize that sensational feeling you get suspended in mid-air and put a spark in you for the rest of your vacation. With unparalleled views from above, you will, once again, see the majesty in air travel.
Our air charter from Florida to Bahamas is our main service, but it doesn’t stop there. Our pilots, which double as trained and experienced Bahamas guides, have all spent substantial time in the Bahamas and can answer almost any question you throw at them.
There are a wealth of options for those vacationing in Bahamas and southern Florida. First, if coming from Florida to Bahamas, you have the option of flying out from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or any local airport which Bahamas Air Tours is allowed to enter.
From there, we can fly you to islands like Providence Island (Nassau), Bimini, or even the out islands of the Exumas. Our tours are special because we allow you to cultivate your own itinerary to give you the most personal, customizable experience you can receive on a vacation in the Bahamas.
Why fly with us
There are a number of services we provide that other tour companies don’t — which makes our tours as stress-free and abling as you could ever want. The sheer size of our private charter allows us to show you the best, most pristine, untouched parts of the Bahamas.
Additionally, your Bahamas charter flights will not be filled with any strangers, only the people you are traveling with which is a joy that can’t be expressed with words. It is a unique chance to enjoy the VIP exclusive experience on a Bahamas Air Charter.
Island hopping around the Bahamas is the best way to experience the country and by doing it through the air, you will save so much time while also being allowed some of the best views known to man. Even astronauts have been quoted saying their favorite view from space is of the Bahamian islands. It is hard not to believe they are telling the truth once you witness it. However, there is only one way to find out and that’s by seeing for yourself.
The biggest advantage of flying around the Bahamas is the fact that you save so much time when compared to other ways of island hopping the Bahamas. Take, for instance, a flight from Florida to Bahamas like one of the trips we offer, Miami to Bimini. Bimini is the closest Bahamian island off the Florida coast. It is about fifty miles east of the Florida peninsula, but on a ferry, the round trip can take up to five hours. Compare this to an hour (round-trip time) through the air.
As you can see, by flying, you are able to spend more time on the beach or sightseeing or doing adventurous things as you imagined doing in the Bahamas — not stuck in transport.
Why you should avoid ferries when traveling Florida to Bahamas
The ferries, although the more popular option because of the number of ferry tour companies, also have a number of disadvantages too.
For starters, the boats are almost always crowded, especially in the high tourist season. There is always a chance if you are traveling with a group that you will have to be split up when on-board and you won’t get to share the experience with the whole family or group.
There’s no chance you will be able to ask questions to experts and the trip itself is not very informative at all. Once you are aboard one of these massive ferries, you are pretty much on your own.
You also have to factor in the frequent delays due to sea conditions being less than ideal. Often, vacationers get stuck in ferry terminals with their limited time on the day trip being delayed even further — or worse — canceled. By flying, you avoid almost all weather delays as most bad weather conditions in the Bahamas are to do with rough sea conditions.
If the trip isn’t delayed, you will undoubtedly still have to deal with long queues and most of your day will feel like you are being herded on and off the boat with the rest of the en-mass of ferry tourism.
Lastly, sea sickness is something which most people don’t anticipate having to deal with. Many claim they don’t have a problem with getting sick at sea, but being confined to a tight space on board and sometimes with little airflow, it is easy to feel sick. Especially as others are getting sick around you.
