Getting Taxi Service and Supplies
Taxis are readily available when flights arrive. They will transport you to the ferry or boat rental agency of your choice. Before you leave Marsh Harbour you may want to stock-up on supplies as you will find a better selection in Marsh Harbour than in Hope Town. Taxis will wait while you get your groceries and liquor supplies. The Bahamian and US Dollar are par in value and both are accepted. Use the ATM in Marsh Harbour for Bahamian cash because there are no ATM's on Elbow Cay. Visa and Mastercard are widely accepted everywhere.
Getting To Elbow Cay
You must take a ferry or rented boat to the island. Albury's Ferry Service has been serving the
Abacos since 1959 and has a good reputation for staying on schedule. They run several ferries daily to Hope Town.
If you prefer to rent a boat, you can choose from several boat rental companies in either Marsh Harbour or
Hope Town. These are shown to the right.
The Ferry Captain will radio our caretaker that you're on the way and you will be met at the ferry dock and taken to Coral Reef House.
Once you arrive, golf carts are the best way to get around the island and can be rented from several vendors.
Golf carts serve as the primary mode of transportation on Elbow Cay. They are used from everything from lugging supplies to your boat, to grocery shopping to sightseeing. You can choose either gas or electric. Rental agencies do not permit children or teenagers to drive their golf carts but bicycle rentals are available for them. Remember, "traffic" drives on the left side of the road.
