advice sought: Haitian departure?

My cousin has been on La Gonāve for her development charity.

She says that there are currently no evacuation flight plans for Canadians such as herself.

She is relatively safe, as La Gonāve is not accessible by land from Port-au-Prince, but I saw anxiety in a video update she recently posted.

Thus, I am looking for advice on whether it would be feasible to consider a maritime departure for her.

Thank you in advance,

Colin

There is a ferry service at Gonave Is., but no international services.

Greetings, and belated welcome aboard the CF, Colin.
Best of luck, to your cousin.

This news report* mentions two private rescue companies, operating in Haiti:

Project DYNAMO ➥ https://www.projectdynamo.org/

I've just heard from my cousin's husband: she's made it to Miami. No further details as yet.

Thank you for your thoughts and help.
