Great Harbour Cay is an official point of entry for The Bahamas if you're flying from a foreign territory such as the U.S. You can get here only via charter flights from South Florida, making these some of the most inconvenient islands to reach in all of The Bahamas.

Island Express (tel. 954/359-0380) operates charters from Fort Lauderdale, winging in to both Great Harbour Cay and Chub Cay. You can also try calling Gulfstream Connection (tel. 954/985-1500; www.gulfstreamair.com), Yellow Air Taxi (tel. 888/YELLOW4 [935-5694]; www.flyyellowtaxi.com), or Southern Air Charter (tel. 242/377-2014; www.southernaircharter.com).

If you're contemplating the mail-boat sea-voyage route, the MV Captain Gurthdean leaves Potter's Cay Dock in Nassau every Tuesday at 7pm, heading for the Berry Islands. For up-to-date departure details, call the dock master at Nassau's Potter's Cay Dock at tel. 242/393-1064.
