everyone has their preference - I love the boat. The view on the trip over is beautiful, chatting with the locals is a great way to start your trip, and the breeze in your face can't be beat. Factor into the cost a taxi ride from BZE to the watertaxi station. Lots of people will tell you fly and get to the island as fast as you can - I've never been in that much of a hurry on vacation - but like I said: everyone has their preference.

I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?
