TRAVEL TO BEQUIA

There are regular ferry services to Bequia from St. Vincent.

The journey takes just 1 hour (30 minutes on the Fast ferry) and is an enjoyable way to arrive into Bequia; sailing around the headland at Devils Table, the whole expanse of Admiralty Bay opens up in front of you, showcasing the harbour town of Port Elizabeth and the stunning beaches of Lower Bay and Princess Margaret.

The ferries depart St. Vincent from the nations capital of Kingstown, which is approximately 15 minutes taxi from St. Vincent's E.T Joshua Airport. Tickets for each ferry are purchased on board.

The current schedule for each ferry company is listed below - If you are making an important connection for travel, we recommend you contact us so we can double check the departure times for you. Cancellations can occasionally occur at short notice and schedules may be subject to change.

Please note: the information on this page is subject to change without notice.
