While I don't generally allow public access to my private property; neither do I chain off the street, in front of it.

Some of the many celebrities who own islands in the Bahamas:
Johnny Depp - Little Halls Pond Cay
Nicholas Cage - Leaf Cay
John Melk - Musha Cay
Baron Rothschild - Bell Island
Tim McGraw & Faith Hill - Goat Cay
Tyler Perry - White Bay Cay
Eddie Murphy - Rooster Cay

Visas are free. The $20 was two pets at $10. You will get a maximum of 240 consecutive days (8x30, which they count) before you have to get some form of residency permit.

Renewal of the cruising permit (your boat didn't leave) after the first year is $500. I don't know what the smaller boat (150 initial) renewal costs...

No more than two renewals on the boat before you have to import it. But bouncing over to T&C or US or Cuba and back gets you back in, starting the clock over again.

And, the only time we did the renewal (we'd flown in and out with the boat on a rental dock so visas weren't an issue), the lady at C&I questioned me several times when I told her I needed to renew; it appeared she was discretely telling me to tell THEM that I'd arrived from someplace, and just get a new cruising permit. YMMV if you choose to take that route (pretend you've just arrived), but it would have saved us $200...

I own waterfront on the St. Lawrence; if the bass fishermen don't get off their boats and fish from my dock, I consider myself fortunate

Re: Bahama Cruising Permit Fees

Does Bahamas still have the policy of a free cruising permit if you return within 90 days.?

Aye, I will answer my own question: Found it on their official website, the deal is still in effect:

The fees will cover:
1) Cruising Permit
2) Fishing Permit
3) Departure Tax for up to three (3) persons. Each additional person above three will be charged a $25 departure tax. This fee is good for a second re-entry within a 90-day period.
