Ferry service between the ABC islands becoming a reality
Published on May 10, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao -- The feasibility study for a ferry service between the ABC islands – Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao – is almost complete and the government can then hold a public tender for interested companies to offer this service.

The tickets for the ferry should be affordable, said the Aruban politician and Member of Parliament Andin Bikker, one of the initiators.

The research on the connection between the islands by water began late last year and was done by Ferry Research Inter Caribbean Express. This was paid by the three islands. The research identified, for example, the preconditions for a ferry.

In addition, a quick turnaround is needed on each island, said Bikker. “The boat must be unloaded and loaded in thirty minutes.”

According to the politician, another point that is important is the affordability of the tickets. “The thoughts are ten dollars one way per person and 25 dollars for a car.”

The sailing time between Aruba and Curacao will be a little over two hours. From Curacao to Bonaire will be about an hour.
