Where you leave on your Fort Lauderdale Bahamas day trip
Our one day cruise from Fort Lauderdale (Miami to Bahamas Day Trip) takes off from the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport at Hangar 11. We suggest being there a half-hour to one full hour ahead of departure in order to check-in with the airline. Usually that means arriving before 7am but check with your trip handler upon booking.

The benefit of our trips to Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale is that after a whole day of exploring and adventuring around the stunning Bahamas islands, you will arrive back to Florida and clear United States customs with enough time to take the family out to dinner. Expect to be back by 6pm with Bahamas Air Tours.
Other services, because of the delays and travel time will have you back to the United States well past 9pm so you will have to resort to less-than-satisfactory ferry cafeteria food for dinner.

It is too bad Bitter Guana Cay is the only place left in the world where you can still find these creatures that grow up to 4-feet in length. The soon-to-be-extinct species is becoming a hot commodity in the Exumas.
Walk around Staniel Cay
Staniel Cay is the hub of tourism in the Exuma Cays. The reason our tours start in Staniel Cay is because it is central to many other Exumas tourist destinations. Explore the island, visit Staniel Cay Yacht Club, and talk with some locals while you are on your trips to Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale.
Swim with Reef Sharks
Compass Cay is one of our favorite places to take customers and they would agree it is pretty neat. At the marina, dozens of Reef and Nurse sharks dwell on the seafloor of the shallow clear water. You have the chance to hop in and swim with the sharks at your leisure. Don’t worry, they are harmless creatures. It is a great spot for amazing photos.
