Island Ferry on the way
On October 1st, 2009 an inter island ferry service based in Grenada will be officially launched. However, the actual voyages will begin on October 20th. The ferry seats over 200 with the rates falling between 120 to 140 USD for the average three hour trip. Travel, from what I gather will be between the islands of Barbados, St Lucia, Grenada, Trinidad and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Given our disgust with LIAT it should be interesting to see the response. Their rates are certainly cheaper than LIAT's disgustingly high offers and three hours is a shorter trip than one to Union Island. I assume that passengers would also be allowed more weight than the 40 0r 45 lbs given by LIAT. By the way I must find out the estimated time of arrival at each port. I don't imagine it will take 3 hours for each destination so I am hoping that it will take less than three hours for some port.

I wish the BEDY Corporation well.

sounds like a nice way to get from island to island if you're not in a rush. wonder what times they'll be running?

Lots of new ventures popping up. Hard times forcing new ideas. We have a new flight service from Mo-Bay to Kingston which is suppose to be more convenient than the big carriers. Hope it works out.
