Accommodations FREEBIRD accommodates up to 5 passengers in 2 double cabins and 1 single cabin. The single cabin is only suitable for a child as the berth leads into the portside queen cabin. FREEBIRD has electric fans in all staterooms and main salon.

CABIN 1: Port side, featuring a low (for easy access) queen-sized berth, over-sized opening hatch over the berth, windows all along one side, 2 private vanities, a bookshelf, and 2 closets. (Cabins 1 & 3 are equivalent in layout.)

CABIN 2: A door located next to the berth of CABIN 1 opens into a single berth. This cabin is suitable for a child since the cabin leads into CABIN 1. Berth size is 8'long x 37" wide. An opening port allows ample fresh air. A fan and light are located overhead. A large space at the head of the berth allows room for personal belongings on the floor, and a large silver hook on the wall is available for hanging clothes.

CABIN 3: (Cabins 1 & 3 are equivalent in layout.) Starboard side, featuring a queen-sized berth, over-sized opening hatch over the berth, windows all along one side, 2 private vanities, a bookshelf, and 2 closets. A door opens into a half-head: a compost toilet and sink.

There is an additional full-sized head located on the port side, which is very large. Two rooms encompass the head suite: a stand-up fresh-water shower, shower seat and utility sink in one room; and an electric toilet, sink and mirror in the 2nd room. This head is suitable for wheelchair access.

Experience the beautiful Exuma Cays and outlying islands of the Bahamas. There are several transportation options to get here:

Option 1: Take a direct flight on one of these carriers into Georgetown, Great Exuma (GGT) from Miami/Ft Lauderdale:
Bahamasair
Silver Airways
American Airlines
Reggies Air

Option 2: Fly directly into Normans Cay or Staniel Cay. This gives you more island time, saving a full day to/from Great Exuma.

Golden Wings offers private charter flights between Nassau and Normans Cay or Staniel Cay (or reverse) for up to 6 guests. The 20 minute flight is $580 total.

Scheduled flights, sold by the seat, ideal for a small group are offered by the following carriers:

Watermakers Air - daily scheduled flights between Ft. Lauderdale and Staniel Cay (+/- $235 each way per person)

Flamingo Air - daily scheduled 40 minute flights between Nassau and Staniel Cay (+/- $110 each way per person)

Freebird is based at anchor at Stocking Island, a short dinghy ride across Elizabeth Harbor to Georgetown. When collecting guests, Freebird has their fav taxi man meet guests at the airport and drive them to the local marina or dock where they meet them. It works very well.
