Getting there & away
The Bequia Express (458-3472; www.bequiaexpress.net) and MV Admiral (458-3348; www.admiralty-transport.com) ferries run between Bequia and St Vincent. The docks are located in the center of Port Elizabeth. The ferries are generally punctual and serve basic food and drink, and the crossing takes only one hour. Tickets are sold upon entry; the fare is EC$15/25 one way/round trip.
Bequia is a popular port of call for sailors on an island-hopping journey. The Bequia Customs and Immigration Office (457-3044; 8:30am-6pm) is in Port Elizabeth opposite the ferry dock. Several shops in town cater to boats, where bulk supplies, ice and charts are easily found.
