Getting to Guyana by boat
Main portsGeorgetown .
Numerous schooners sail between Guyana and the Caribbean islands, but schedules are erratic. For details, contact local ports. Cargo vessels run by the Guyana National Shipping Corporation ply from Miami to Georgetown and vessels run by the Demerara Shipping Company ply between European ports and Georgetown weekly.
Following recent improvements in relations with Surinam, a ferry service across the Courantyne River now links the two countries. This is the only mode of transport that should be used when crossing the river; travellers using water taxis could be arrested.
