We understand that getting to the Bahamas can be a challenge, which is why we’re excited to offer you the option of a private flight from Florida directly to our academy in Long Island, Bahamas.

With private air travel, you will be using private airports and landing strips depending on your trip. We will try to accommodate you with updated information from our growing airport landing pages. View a few common airports below.

Opa-Locka Executive Airport (OPF)
Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL)
Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)



It is recommended to arrange the NAS to LI portion first.
BahamasAir is the National Carrier – daily flights from Nassau, usually early afternoon. ONLY FLIES TO DEADMANS CAY. If you’re planning to fly BahamasAir to the island, Tuesday and Saturday are your best bets. Catch an early morning flight to Nassau, breeze through customs, and you’ll be all set to catch your afternoon connecting flight to Long Island. Smooth and easy!

Southern Air Charters is a local airline that flies daily from Nassau to LI, usually early morning and mid-afternoon. Tuesday, only a morning flight. FLIES TO BOTH SML and LGI
Stella Maris Air, operated out of Stella Maris Resort, now offers By-The-Seat charter service from Nassau and Exuma. Possibly the latest flight out of Nassau for your tight connections, as long as the plane can arrive by sunset. GREAT AND RELIABLE SERVICE

Makers Air & Air Flight Charters out of Fort Lauderdale Executive (FXE) are now offering shared Charters to LI. Contact them about the dates you are interested in. This is a great way to fly commercial DIRECT to Long Island for a great price. Don’t spend all your vacation in airports!

You will need 2 hours between your connections in Nassau to make the check-in time at the Domestic Terminal. And the same for your departure – remember, if traveling to the United States, you clear US Customs in Nassau on your way back, so this will add extra time if you are traveling at a busy time of the year. Expect longer with new distancing requirements.

USE THE CONNECTING FLIGHTS LINE AT IMMIGRATION (ON THE LEFT) and avoid the longer queue with everyone who is staying in Nassau! DON’T FORGET TO COLLECT YOUR LUGGAGE AT CUSTOMS, EVEN IF YOU HAVE CHECKED IT THROUGH! You will then re-check your luggage when you check in for your flight to Long Island.

If you find you need to Overnight in Nassau

We recommend Orange Hill, A Stones Throw Away or the Towne Hotel for your night in Nassau. 2 are close to the airport, but still by the sea. The Towne is in town, a longer cab ride, but closer to Paradise Island, the Straw Market, and Bay Street if you want to explore a bit. There are many nice hotels in Nassau, but these won’t break the bank!
