Airport code - MYRP

Lat.: N23 42' 30" - Long.: W 74 50' 00" - Size: 30 Sq. mls

Rum Cay is roughly 9 miles x 5 miles and located right in between San Salvador (20 miles to the East) and Long Island to the West. The small uninhabited island of Conception is just north of Rum accessible by boat within the hour or so.

In 2004 the Bahamian Government gave Rum Cay a brand new 4500 foot paved runway with 500 ft over runs. It was a huge upgrade from the 2000 ft grass airstrip further south on the island! Services at the airport are still very limited but at least there's a fence up to keep the cows out!

Rum Cay Airport

Commercial Flights to Rum Cay

Cat Island Air is now flying in Rum Cay...again! As confirmed by my phone call on May 19, 2011 they are flying again on Tuesdays and Saturdays leaving Nassau at 11am. They do need at least three people to fly. Rate is $120/person one way.

Call them at 242-377-3318 to make your reservation.

Private Air Charters to Rum Cay

Another option is to fly private charter from South Florida. Air Charter Bahamas has a Navajo Chieftain that can accommodate up to 7 people. A one-way flight will run around $4200.

For more private air charter options please contact us at rumcay@gonesurfinn.com or by phone at 1-800-730-2148.

If you are arriving by private charter and need a pick up at the airport please call George's Taxi at 242-331-2809 or 242-479-0017. There may not be cell phone service at the airport and the walk to Port Nelson is three very long, dry, lonely miles. Make sure someone knows you are coming! Good idea to do a "buzz" over Port Nelson as well!

Clearing Customs

Rum Cay currently does NOT have customs services. If you are flying direct from South Florida you must clear customs at a Bahamian island with customs.   We would suggest clearing in to Stella Maris, Georgetown or New Bight. 

If you are arriving by boat you will also need to clear in on another island such as San Salvador or Long Island.
