Last Chance Store
1-242-331-2806 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Kaye (from Kaye’s Bar) also has a grocery store that carries groceries some handcrafted art/jewellery from local artists (hers included). You will find all your basics as far as fresh produce like potatoes, onions, green peppers, iceberg lettuce along with frozen meats, canned goods, milk, cleaning supplies, etc. If you’re planning a trip to Rum Cay then it’s best to give her a call and see what she has. If you’re looking for a lot of something in particular there’s a good chance she can get it for you wholesale and have it waiting for you. The mailboat comes from Nassau every week which is highly dependant on weather, boat, crew, etc.
For sportfish boats and yachts Kaye can help you stock the boat with beer, bottled water, soda, meats. Just give her a call!
There’s no one friendlier on Rum Cay than our only Taxi guy on the island…George Gaitor. He’s dependable and has a van that can seat about 12 people! If you need an airport pick-up George is your man. Make sure you call him ahead of time of your ETA. There are no phones at the airport and sometimes cellphone service is also not available so to avoid the three mile walk to town it’s best to give him a call the day before to let him know. He also offers Rum Cay island tours! Be sure to call him for his rates!
