Arrive in Freeport, Bahamas unlike any other Spring Break destination by way of a ferry. You’ll board the ferry in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on the first morning of your trip. (We recommend getting to Ft. Lauderdale the night before or driving overnight so that you do not miss the ferry!)

A member of the StudentCity Freeport Staff will be at the ferry terminal in Ft. Lauderdale and will make the trip over to The Bahamas with you. In most cases, your StudentCity Welcome Orientation will take place on board the ferry, so as to not waste any time once you get to paradise.

Upon arriving in Freeport, you will exit the ferry and pick up any luggage you may have checked, and you will proceed to the private busses that StudentCity has waiting for you to bring you to your resort. StudentCity Staff will be present at the ferry terminal in Freeport as well, pointing you in the right direction.
