Old Bahama Bay, a major resort on Grand Bahama has reopened its marina, one of the latest steps in the island’s recovery efforts following Hurricane Dorian.

“It has been a month that has truly shown the strength of our staff and stakeholders here at Old Bahama Bay,” notes John MacDonald, president of Old Bahama Bay. “In addition to hurricane clean up, reinstallation of the marina power pedestals and re-coating the docks, Old Bahama Bay has been ground zero for the distribution of humanitarian supplies”.  The resort delivered and distributed over 600 tons of supplies throughout the northern Bahamas following Dorian.

In addition to the marina, the resort is expected to open Teasers Beach Side Bar & Grill, Banana Hammocks Harbour Side Bar and the beachside pool, with the Dockside Restaurant and the rest of the facilities to follow shortly.

Grand Bahama’s Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort has also announced it will be welcoming guests in November.  The property will reopen with over half its rooms having been newly renovated.

The Flamingo Bay Hotel reopened earlier in October.

Grand Bahama’s cruise sector has also rebounded, with Carnival Cruise Line already operating cruises to Freeport again.
