The Bahamas extends 760 miles from the coast of Florida on the north-west almost to Haiti on the south-east. The group consists of 700 islands and 2,400 cays with an area of 5,358 sq. miles (13,878 sq. km.). Thirty of the islands are inhabited.

The principal islands include Abaco, Acklins, Andros, Berry Islands, Bimini, Cat Island, Crooked Island, Eleuthera, Exuma, Grand Bahama, Harbour Island, Inagua, Long Island, Mayaguana, New Providence (where the capital, Nassau, is located), Ragged Island, Rum Cay, San Salvador and Spanish Wells.  Inchcape Shipping Services, international maritime service provider, provides full husbandry services at all of the above ports.

The 2000 census disclosed that the population of the Bahamas totalled 306,000.  Ninety percent of the total population lives on New Providence, Grand Bahama and Abaco. New Providence has 69.9 percent of the population, Grand Bahama and Abaco with 15.5 percent, and 10.3 percent are scattered on the remaining islands and cays.

 

Due largely to its proximity to the Florida Coast the Port of Nassau is a busy cruise vessel port, handling up to seven cruise vessels a day.  The port also services liner vessels.

 

Our team of experienced, well trained and professional staff work around the clock 365/24/7 to ensure that we provide an excellent service to our all customers
