Getting here

Tiny planes, big adventures.

Scheduled flights, as well as private chartered flights, are available direct from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (1h 30 minutes) or Nassau, The Bahamas (40 minutes) into Staniel Cay Airstrip.

Book your flight with Flamingo Air


Once on the ground at Staniel Cay Airstrip (a mere 1.25 miles from Fowl Cay), a member of our resort team will meet you personally, take care of your luggage and bring you to the dock, where you will be transferred by a breathtaking 7-minute boat ride to the Cay.

Airport transfers for guests arriving from Staniel Cay Airstrip to Fowl Cay Resort are complimentary. You are also welcome to travel to Fowl Cay with your boat. Private planes may land at Staniel Cay's 3,030 ft.-paved airstrip. You may also charter a seaplane to land near our resort.

Please note that check-in time is 3 PM and check-out time is 10 AM. Plan your inbound and outbound charter flights accordingly.

We are a VERY small island with a lean, hardworking and dedicated staff. Preparing our private resort for your arrival and those that follow is a tremendous challenge with limited time, so our check-in & check-out times are VERY firm. Thank you for your understanding.
