Hey Bob, (or anybody else with info)
Not to change the post, but what airline or other transportation do you use when you go over?? We have been itching to go back to Freeport and Allegiant gets us from home to Florida (Sanford, Ft Lauderdale or Tampa) but I was wondering the best (cheapest) way to get over to GBI from Florida.
It is a 8 hour drive for us but we end up using the Discovery ferry mostly to go over. US air has direct flights from Charlotte once a day.

Check out the cruise. They even offer a complete package.

For air transport to GBI, you'll want to go to Ft. Lauderdale and hook up with either Spirit Airlines or Continental and make the jump over.

In reference to Capt. Tony Catamaran snorkeling...I noticed on their site they list a children's price..begins at age 6. Does anyone know if a 1 yr. and 2 yr. old can go on this? They would just hang out with me (Grandma) on the catamaran while Papa snorkels with our adult children. This is just something we are thinking about for Freeport. Thanks for your replies!

Thanks bobsfamily! If you don't mind, while you are on Capt. Tony's trip, would you see if the catamaran "feels" comfortable to you to have two toddlers on? Or if you would feel "on edge" if you had two little ones with you on it..as far as safety? I greatly appreciate any info you have on your return!! I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing cruise! It's almost time for you to go!!!! Can't wait for your review!!
