The long-awaited passenger ferry service linking some of the islands in the Caribbean could become a reality by year-end. Caribbean Ferry Service, a three-year-old company registered in Barbados, is in the process of finalising paperwork to operate two vessels, The Dream Jet Express and The Opal Jet Express, for travel and cargo through the region, the Barbados Nation News has reported.
The service will be initially accessible to travellers in Barbados, St Vincent and the Grenadines and St Lucia. Eventually, other islands would be added to the itinerary.
Barbados Nation said Chief executive officer Randy Connor, who disclosed the plans Wednesday, said the vessels will have two homeports: St Vincent and the Grenadines and Barbados, which is also the company’s headquarters.
