Freeport in Grand Bahamas – 3 Hours Boat Ride from Fort Lauderdale

Day trip to Grand Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale (about 15 hours): Taking the Balearia Express Boat is a great way to touch the Bahamas. (Freeport in Grand Bahamas) Three hours after leaving Fort Lauderdale, I was enjoying the crystal clear water and white sand. The boat left Fort Lauderdale at 8 A.M. and arrived back in Fort Lauderdale at 10 P.M. (Very Punctual) I had about 5+ hours free time in the Bahamas. Special roundtrip fare of $67 ($49 + $18 Tax) purchased from TravelZoo. The ocean was calm during my trip. On the Island, I rented a bike for four hours ($15) and went to a local beach and local bar/restaurant. Fried whole snapper fish and salad lunch was so fresh and crispy. (It was kind of a small fish but it cost only $10 with salad.) Scooter rental is available but driving on the left side of the road might be challenging. Local transport from Freeport to Lucaya can be booked on Balearia Express (Recommend, Roundtrip $10 +18% Gratuity). Daily access to Lucaya Resort is available ($15 + 18% Gratuity, Towel and Fresh Water Shower). Daily special drink on the boat was $4. Freeport is about 87 miles away from Fort Lauderdale but the beach and water are heavenly beautiful.
