That's right. While there are a few inter-island ferries, they are few and far between.

It's much easier - in theory - to go from island to island by air. In practice, this usually means LIAT which stands for "Luggage In Another Town", or "Leaves Island Any Time" or "Late In Again Today". It actually stands for Leeward Islands Air Transport and their reliability and punctuality leave a lot to be desired. Their safety record - on the other hand - is second to none.

I would advise that you don't set yourself too tight a schedule, as delays of one sort or another are almost inevitable. Also, bear in mind that immigration in each country will want to know how long you are staying for, what your intended address is and how you intend to leave.

LIAT used to do a special ticket with which you could make as many journeys as you like within 30 days. I don't know if this is still available, but if it is it will be very good value.

So have fun, but be prepared for irritating delays along the way.
