Disabled Cruisers Guide to Freeport, Bahamas
For the disabled cruiser visiting Freeport, the activities are spread out so you’ll need transportation to reach them as there are no accessible activities/attractions within walking/rolling distance of the cruise port. The island is flat with new construction so wheelchair access is considerably better than other hilly, cobblestone-covered islands.
There is step-free access to get off the pier and down to the street to reach the tour drivers for wheelchair accessible excursions. Also, accessible shopping is available both inside and outside the cruise port.
Freeport has fewer attractions and accessible shore excursions than other Caribbean ports. Freeport was not much of a tourist destination until cruise lines built a pier on the island. The cruise pier is located close to this industrial port and there are few food options and no pool or beach options, so you’ll need to exit the cruise port area for all activities.
There are wheelchair accessible vans available, they must be booked prior to arriving to ensure availability.
