From Marsh Harbour


Elbow Cay is a short 15 minute journey across the beautiful Sea of Abaco by ferry (The Ferry at The Crossing) or rental/charter boat.


If arriving on Elbow Cay by rental/charter boat you can go directly to Tahiti Sunset’s private dock in front of the house and meet Rabanette, our caretaker there.


If arriving by scheduled ferry service you will be met by Rabanette at one of the public docks in Hopetown (Post Office Dock or Hopetown Harbour Lodge Dock) and guests and bags will be taken to the house.


Private Charter: Stafford Patterson aka “Captain Plug” is also available for private boat charter from Marsh Harbour to Tahiti Sunset dock for a reasonable rate. He can be contacted by phone on 242-366-0023 or by email captplug@gmail.com and further information can be found on his website www.captplug.com


If you arrive in daylight and wish to take your rental boat to Elbow Cay from Marsh Harbour, this can be arranged through one of several boat rental companies. Please see listings under separate section on Getting Around.

Getting Around:

One of the joys of Hope Town and Elbow Cay is that there are very few cars on the island. There are no cars to rent and golf carts are the best way to explore the island and get around. Bicycles can also be rented and are a fun way to get about in the cooler months. Renting a boat to explore the neighbouring cays and uninhabited islands is a great way to spend part or all of your holiday. The Albury 23 is our preferred boat, locally made and great for the shallow waters of the Sea of Abaco.

You should rent your golf cart and boat well ahead as they book up very quickly. 

Tahiti Sunset can accommodate boats up to 35’ in length in the private dock slip in front of the house.
