This as BEDY Travel a private entity in Grenada prepares to embark on such a move. The planned service is scheduled to work from Sunday to Friday each week at times that are soon to be scheduled.

The vessel is said to be capable of carrying 260 passengers at speeds of over 25 knots.

Passengers will travel in a comfortable cabin where video presentations and movies will be shown. Snacks will also be served inclusive of the price. This service is expected to enhance travel between the islands as passengers would be able to travel with baggage where there is no weight restriction.

However, persons with large amounts of cargo will need to contact the ship’s representatives for applicable charges. According to BEDY Travel they for sometime have recognized the need for such a service and have embarked on the process of meeting the needs of the public.

Travelers are expected to save as fares on this service may be as much as 50 per cent lower than the conventional mode of transportation presently offered.

The governments of the Eastern Caribbean are also expected to begin an inter-island ferry service soon.
