Getting connected while cruising in the magnificent waters of the Bahamas is getting better and better. Boaters cannot expect to have coverage everywhere they cruise in Bahamas waters however they will get cell signals when they approach a “public Island”.
Most inhabited Bahamas islands have cell towers that you will be able to connect to. Depending where you sail you should not be far away from a signal, maybe just a few hours away. Boaters that want to be connected all the time should use a satellite phone, the phone is expensive, the cost per minute is also way higher than regular cell phone, however it is very reliable.
