    Travel Arrangements:  The travel agent that used to help our groups book their flights has retired.  So you may know a good travel agent to assist you or I have found  a very helpful site.  Ciganka will be ready for boarding at 2:00 on Friday and departure should be by 12:00 noon on Thursday.  These times can be a bit flexible but we ask that you keep them in mind as you schedule your flights.

    • Your travel destination is Marsh Harbour, Abacos, Bahamas. The airport code is MHH
    • United Airlines: United Airlines has a special department to help with making travel arrangements for groups of 10 or more and have proved to be very helpful.  Call them at 1-800-426-1122

    • Bahamas Air: They are a Bahamian airline and are expanding their services and giving pretty good prices.  They also have a group help desk that is helpful.  It is a Bahamian phone number 1-242-322-6673 and ask for Miss Karen Feaste.

    Departure Tax: There is a $37 per person departure tax that you have to pay at the Marsh Harbour airport as you fly out.  This must be in cash.  Sometimes this tax is already included in your air ticket.  Ask your airline.

    Cancellations and refunds: This deposit is non-refundable if you cancel, unless we can book it with another person taking your spot.  Or if there is a last minute family or medical emergency that cannot be helped we would refund your deposit.
