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  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.
  • American Airlines and Silver Airways also fly into Marsh Harbour.
  • Bahamas Air is a Bahamian airline and are expanding their services and giving pretty good prices.  They also have a group help desk that is helpful. Here’s their Website.  Call the Bahamian phone number 1-242-322-6673 and ask for Miss Karen Feaste.

  • Documents Needed for Your Travels
    You must have a valid passport. And if you are under 18 years old and are not traveling with both parents you must also fill out and carry the “Permission to travel out of the US” form. You will give this form to the Bahamian Immigration Official.

Bahamian 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/charter fee is non-refundable if you cancel, unless we can book it with another person taking your spot.
