Getting to Rum Cay

Rum Cay Airport

Airport code – MYRP

Lat.: N23 42′ 30″ – Long.: W 74 50′ 00″ – Size: 30 Sq. mls

Getting to Rum Cay can provide its challenges but we do give you some options below! 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.

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 non-existent but at least there’s a fence up to keep the cows out!

Where to Clear 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, San Salvador, 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.

Airport Pickup Service

If you are arriving by private charter and need a pick up at the airport please be sure you have a pickup arranged at the airport.  It’s a three mile hike from the airport to town which is not easy to do with luggage so if you need help arranging this just let us know by calling 416-712-2138.
