Rental boats are a necessity for getting around the islands!
Rental boats are the run-about types and are available for rent in various sizes. They are easy to operate and the Sea of Abaco is protected and not deep and is perfect for boating.
Most companies offer center consoles in the 20-26’ range. A couple can make do with a 20-footer; a party of 6-8 will want a 26-footer. Larger boats will typically handle rough weather better than smaller ones.
As soon as you book your cottage, you’ll want to rent your boat right away as they can sell out quickly, and book at least 2 months in advance for June & July rentals or you may well be stuck on Lubbers without a boat, and chartering a ferry is about $80 1-way (to Marsh Harbour), and island hopping would be impossible! Listed below are some of the rental agencies:

Rainbow Rentals, Bay Street, 367-4602
Rich’s Rentals, 367-2742
