Frequently Asked Questions
Where do we pick up our boat?
We will pick you up at the nearest dock to your accommodations and bring you back to our office on Parrot Cay for boat check out and paperwork. Pick up in Marsh Harbour is possible with prior arrangement. It is weather depending, but also gives you the option of riding the ferry in rough or rainy weather and having your boat delivered directly to your rental cottage or hotel later when the weather clears. We have a slip at Calcutta (Marsh Harbour Boatyards) and all the Marsh Harbour taxi drivers know where it is.
Where do we return the boat?
You are responsible for returning your boat to Island Marine. After checking in your boat and finalizing your bill, we will give you a ride to your rental cottage, hotel or resort. There will be a $75 charge for us to pick up your boat.
What time does our boat need to be returned?
At the completion of your rental, we ask that you please return in the afternoon by 4:15 PM. We can make these arrangements when you take delivery of your boat.
Do we need to gas up the boat when returning?
Unfortunately we no longer have fuel here on Parrot Cay.
How will we get "home" after we return the boat?
We will be happy to give you a ride.
What are rental boat boundaries?
Our boundaries are from Little Harbour to the South and as far north as the North end of Great Guana Cay on the "inside" of Abaco Sound (between Great Abaco and the outer cays) with the exception of Fowl Cay National Park and Reef for experienced boaters. Operation in the Atlantic Ocean is not permitted.
Is docking available on all islands?
Yes, there are public docks in all harbours. Most restaurants and resorts also have docking available.
What about snorkel gear?
Sorry, we no longer have rental snorkel gear. At the moment there are no open dive shops in Hope Town. It is best to bring your own gear.
