PILOT INFORMATION:

When flying to the Bahamas, private pilots need to understand the complexity of flying over water for significant

distances. The Bahamas can be navigated via VOR's. This method is not recommended. A GPS (2) is highly

suggested.

When entering the Bahamas, you must land at an official Airport of Entry. It is suggested that you land before

4pm (and during a weekday) to facilitate customs and your ground transportation. Arriving after 5pm, you will be

subject to "overtime fees" and additional landing fees and customs fees.

General Aviation aircraft are not permitted to land in the Bahamas after official sunset or before sunrise, unless

an official I.F.R. flight plan has been filed. Pilots are required to have the current approach plates and proper

instrumentation on board to successfully complete an IFR landing.

At controlled airports, pilots are advised to contact the tower when within 20 nautical miles from the airport.

This contact will facilitate the landing procedures. When approaching non-controlled airports (most airports are

non- controlled), the pilot is expected to announce the: Aircraft type, Identfication number, Location, and

Intentions over the universal unicom frequencey of 122.8. The pattern altitude at uncontrolled airports is

stipulated @ 1,000 feet. A lefthand traffic pattern is to be assumed.

ACTIVITIES

The activities of the Bahamas and Caribbean Islands are based around the beautiful crystal clear oceans

that surround them.



Scuba Diving:

BAHAMAS DIVING ASSOCIATION OFFICIAL SITE

The islands are perfect for Scuba diving and Snorkeling. The visibility of the waters surrounding the

islands is greater than 100 feet of visibility year round. The water temperature is usually a baumy 80

degrees. The only reason a wet suit is necessary is to keep from being stung by the fire coral or bitten

by the sea lice. The diving scene is diverse. From shallow reef dives to wreck dives over 130 feet.




Snorkeling:


Snorkeling is a perfect activity for the islands. Coral reefs can be found feet from the shore. Equipment can be

easily rented for a day or for the extent of your stay. The outer Islands offer undisturbed underwater beauty.

Due to the lack of construction and its associated pollution, the out islands oceans have remained

undisturbed. You'll remember your underwater diving adventure for a long, long time.




Golf:


There are several golf courses found in the Bahamas. The courses are found on; Nassau, Grand Bahama,

Treasure Cay, Abaco, and Rock Sound, Eleuthera.




Tennis:


Bring your racquet. While in Exuma, you can have the local pro give you a couple of tips. He's the only

Bahamian to have played on the grass @ Wimbeldon.

BOATING ISSUES - BOYCOTT?

 

As of July 2003, the commonwealth of the Bahamas as instituted a change in the fee charged to boaters entering the Bahamian waters. Each pleasure craft will now be charged $300.00 (up from $100.00) as a "user" fee.

This article appeared in The Tribune on Thursday July 17: By PACO NUNEZ Tribune Staff Reporter
GOVERNMENT will review pleasure boat fees in response to protests by US boaters, it was announced yesterday as both the Ministry of Tourism and members of the public responded to a website urging a boycott of the Bahamas.(www.boycottbahamas.com)( a must read for anyone considering travel to the Bahamas, click, view comments )

The declaration comes approximately one week after an increase in boat cruising fees was announced. Concerned members of the public, however, urged government not to revoke the increase, as they say this would be giving in to the demands of what is probably a small group of boaters.

It was reported in a Tribune article on July 16, that US boaters have launched an anti-Bahamas website in an effort to boycott a “ridiculous” increase in boating fees. According to the website, which calls for boaters to boycott the Bahamas because of the increases, starting in January 2004, all boaters must pay $300 to cruise and fish in Bahamian waters, up from $100 before July.

According to a Ministry of Tourism press release: “The government of the Bahamas, having recently implemented an increase in the entry fee for pleasure boats cruising our waters, has taken note of the widespread reaction to the new fee by the boating community, both within the country and abroad, and is presently conducting a review of the options at hand in the best interest of all concerned parties.” The ministry said it is sensitive to the reaction of the boaters, and as a result has decided to explore “several other options with the boating community by reviewing the situation in a consultative way.” The release pointed out, however, that “we must be mindful that the government is particularly concerned with the preservation of the environment for the enjoyment for future generations of our citizens as well as visitors and that it is our wish to encourage boaters to enjoy our crystal clear waters with the abundance of fish in a sustainable and responsible way.”

It said that “in the best interest of the nation, there is no doubt that the pollution of our waters must be minimised.” According to the release, the boating community presently cruises Bahamian waters in some instances for periods of as long as six months at a time. The release said that such boaters have in the past paid only $20 for a cruising permit and $20 for a fishing permit. It added that prior to the implementation of the present $100 fee, which includes departure tax for four persons, “boaters paid no departure tax unlike those persons that visited by air.”

The release said that after September 11, the Bahamas has been asked to increase security measures at all ports of entry, “a new, but necessary, burden for the safety of our people as well as our visitors.” “We, therefore, ask all those concerned to allow this speedy review to take place which, when completed, will be reported to the public,” the release said.

Members of the public also expressed their opinion on the matter yesterday. They stressed that while they appreciated the business that pleasure boaters brought to the Bahamas, they thought the opinions expressed on the website were unreasonable. One caller said that in his opinion the "hoopla" was created by a small group of people, who perhaps travelled into the Bahamas several times a year on short trips and did not desire to be charged $300 a number of times. He pointed out that for large motor boats, for example, those that dock in the Atlantis marina, $300 would not be an issue. "It wouldn't phase them in the least," he said, adding that in his opinion the same could be said of boats that enter Bahamian waters planning to cruise for months at a time. "I think this is just horrible," one woman told The Tribune. She pointed that when Bahamians go to Florida, "we pay hotel room tax, sales tax, but when (boaters) get here, they even get parts duty free." It was explained that US boaters in the Bahamas are allowed to import any parts and equipment that they might need duty free — a stipulation that more than one person said affected local marine stores, whose shelves are stocked with parts and equipment that has already had its duty paid.

"Our money is play money?" one member of the public said - reacting to a disparaging comment posted on the website by one boater. The individual had expressed his annoyance at being given change in Bahamian currency when he bought an item in the Bahamas. "What if they had to go buy local currency every time they came here? She asked, noting that Bahamian and US dollars are traded freely for the convenience of the visitor.

One member of the public said that seen in the proper context, reducing the fees from $300 “would be a big mistake.” He pointed out that persons who afford to have “yachts” and travel could certainly contribute $300 to the economy that provides such persons with leisure and recreation. He pointed out that such a person would pay the same amount for one night’s stay in a hotel at Disney World.

“I would just hate to think that with the concessions they get and all we have to offer, that they begrudge us this,” he said. One woman said that as the $100 charge had been in place for so many years that if 3 per cent inflation were to be calculated, the fee would amount to around $300 in any case. Said another person: “How do they expect us to improve our facilities to give them garbage collection and dingy docks and all of the things that they want and need if they are not willing to contribute”.

Members of the public who have had some contact with visiting boaters said that in many cases, boats come laden to the Bahamas with all of the goods they need, and, contrary to what is published on the website, spend very little in the Bahamas — having as they do the country’s marine food resources at their disposal.

Members of the public, when told that the Ministry of Tourism was exploring alternate options, suggested a system under which a number of fee brackets should be introduced. They said boaters could either choose to pay a yearly fee of $1000 or a $300 fee per trip. This way, they said, boaters who come to the Bahamas as many as seven times a year could avoid paying $300 each time by purchasing the yearly permit, while a one time visitor could continue to pay only $300 for his trip. One person suggested that boaters planning to rent accommodations in the Bahamas rather than live on their vessels be charged a reduced fee of $150.
