Tropic Ocean Airways and The Moorings Create a “Fly & Sail” Option in the Bahamas

Seaplane and Catamaran Travel Option

Published: Tuesday, April 3, 2018

The Moorings, the world’s premier yacht charter company, has partnered with Tropic Ocean Airways, the leading seaplane operator in the eastern United States, to offer a one-of-a-kind travel experience to guests visiting the Bahamas.

The “Fly & Sail” service allows yacht charter guests to reserve a private flight directly to their desired Bahamas destination out of Tropic Ocean Airways’ lounge at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport’s private FBO, Sheltair, or the Miami Seaplane Base – centrally located between downtown Miami and South Beach on Watson Island. Upon arrival, the private Sail, Power, or all-inclusive Crewed Moorings yacht of choice will be prepped and ready for guests to come aboard to begin their unforgettable island-hopping vacation in the unspoiled Abacos or Exumas.

This exclusive partnership helps visitors make the most of their travel time, while also making the process as stress-free and seamless as possible. The experience begins with a greeting from the Tropic Ocean Airways dedicated lounge staff, who assist with everything from valet parking to baggage handling, followed by a greeting from two personal pilots before taking flight on the private seaplane. Then, less than 90 minutes later, passengers arrive at one of two charter bases in the Bahamas – Nassau or Marsh Harbour, where they will be welcomed by The Moorings staff.

This newly established relationship between two unique players in the travel industry is a game changer for vacationers in search of the ultimate tailor-made experience. According to Rob Ceravolo, CEO of Tropic Ocean Airways, “The two best ways to see the full natural beauty of the Bahamas are from the air and from the water. With the ‘Fly & Sail’ service, guests have the opportunity to experience both.”

All Tropic Ocean Airways’ flights to and from the Bahamas feature premium seating for up to eight passengers aboard an air-conditioned two-pilot crewed Cessna aircraft with luxury interiors. The “Fly & Sail” service can be booked by emailing [email protected] or over the phone by calling 1.954.210.5569 or 1.800.767.0897
