There is a wide range of direct commercial flights to Freeport from many Eastern hub cities. Atlanta, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Newark, Hartford, Philadelphia and New York City are most common. There are also connecting flights from Miami, Palm Beach, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale. From Freeport, Deep Water Cay will arrange private taxis to pick up arriving guests and transport them to McLean’s Town. Then a 5-minute private water taxi brings guests to the island.
The recommended approach is from the south by way of the Northwest Providence Channel. The approach channel and harbor have 5-foot depths at Mean Low Tide. We can accommodate boats and yachts up to 200 feet, with electric and water hook ups available. To schedule your arrival by radio, please note that Channel 16 is monitored. Coordinates are 77 56W/26 38N.
The club’s private 4,000-ft paved jet airstrip, along with the ability to clear Bahamian Customs and Immigration on island, make Deep Water Cay readily accessible for those arriving by private aircraft.
