Mail Pickup in the Bahamas

We are currently cruising through the Bahamas north to south. We need to have some documents forwarded to us on the way.
Any ideas on the best way to have the mail dropped at a secure pick up point?
Thanks. All suggestions are appreciated

Watermaker Air in Staniel Cay, and Doeboi incorporated in George Town.
I would use Watermaker Air, as I wasn’t happy with Doeboi, but that may be normal.

May be others.

Post office, general delivery for pickup.
Used this in Freeport.

Re: Mail Pickup in the Bahamas

I would avoid all "typical" mail options in The Bahamas at all cost!
We heard countless horror stories about the fees, the delays and eventually moving on without.

Watermaker Air (now Makers Air) into Staniel Cay is the best way to get anything/everything!
Have someone put a package together for you (might as well fill a box if your sending anything) and ship direct to (or drop-off at) Makers Air and then you simply pick everything up directly at the Marina on Staniel!

Couldn't possibly be easier and we used this location for mail, deliveries, spare parts, replacements, etc, you name it - before continuing onward south!

Re: Mail Pickup in the Bahamas

Conventional mail can make it but expect 5 or more weeks for delivery or maybe never. Did it once and it took 5 weeks to Georgetown.
