From work time to playtime in no time
FRS Caribbean announces the launch of their brand new service to one of the most idyllic destinations of the Caribbean: Bimini, Bahamas. With this new route FRS extends its worldwide operations on short distance routes. FRS Caribbean started their services last Friday, September 23rd 2016, letting passengers enjoy a quick, easy and relaxing day trip onboard the HSC “San Gwann” with day trip prices starting at only $ 69.98 plus taxes and fees.
HSC “San Gwann” is part of the FRS Caribbean fleet, crossing in just 2 hours and capable of hosting 427 passengers with comfortable seats. It is equipped with a bar counter in both passenger decks where passengers can enjoy refreshments and snacks during their voyage and a duty free shop to end a getaway with some mementoes and gifts. Guests can also explore and adventure the magical Island of BIMINI with selected tours and excursions like water activities such as kayak, paddle boarding, jet skiing, snorkeling and more.
FRS Caribbean has made its home at Port Miami, Terminal H, where passengers are able to park nearby for the day or overnight. FRS Caribbean’s call center is available for reservations and enquiries Monday - Saturday from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and Sundays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
FRS wants to specially thank the Ministry of Tourism of the Bahamas for its support which has been crucial in this new venture for FRS to start operations in this region. The vessel arrived in the Bahamas on July 3rd 2016, after its journey across the Atlantic Ocean which started on June 20th in Europe.
“These are exciting times for FRS as we are thrilled to expand our North American operations and to continue with our future growth plan,” said Götz Becker, CEO of FRS. “We are sure that with this vessel, we will bring the highest standards in service and safety to our customers, providing them with a relaxing and convenient way of traveling.”
This new line shows FRS’s continuous commitment to expand in the North American market. In January 2016, FRS acquired a majority interest in Clipper Navigation, Inc. based in Seattle. Clipper, operator of Clipper Vacations, is a recognized company in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada, offering unique regional travel experience, including high speed Victoria Clipper ferry services from Seattle to Victoria, and Seattle to San Juan Island. With this acquisition, Clipper will expand its Canadian service with a new hub in Vancouver connecting downtown Vancouver with Downtown Victoria.
