Fun Fact:

Nassau, the capital city of The Bahamas, was originally founded in 1670 as Charles Town. During the Raid on Charles Town by the Spanish, the settlement was burned down. In 1695 the city was rebuilt and renamed Nassau by Governor Nicholas Trott in honor of the Dutch Stadtholder and later King of England, Scotland and Ireland, William III, of the House of Orange-Nassau.

How Can I Get To Nassau?

There are plenty of options for getting to Nassau, such as multiple cruises leaving every day from Port Canaveral, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami. There are also dozens of commercial flights scheduled from airports like Orlando (MCO) and Jacksonville (JAX). If either of these sounds appealing, grab your passport, pack lightly, stand in a long, slow moving line, and wait for hours before squeezing into a tiny seat surrounded by people you don’t know. Or, contact AirGate Aviation, pack whatever gear you need, walk right up to your private aircraft charter, and fly to Nassau with your friends and family aboard a private aircraft charter. It’s your choice!
