G&L Transportation was started in 2012, by two young carpenters, Grant Albury and Lyle Sawyer, that were also softball teammates and friends, looking to purchase a boat to defray travel expenses for work by supplementing the vessel as a workers ferry service to Man-O-War Cay. Within a few short months the opportunity arose to purchase a larger ferry from a long standing ferry that was also servicing Man-O-War Cay to which they jumped on almost immediately. The duo purchased, re-powered and refurbished the boat to provide a more suitable means of transportation for the passengers, and that began their road to entrepreneurship. Although they didn't have direct experience in the ferry business, both men grew up "on the water" around boats and operating them from an early age. It was soon apparent that there would be a need for another vessel, to provide reliable service through breakdowns and routine service requirements. In 2015 the second boat, a lobster fishing vessel was purchased from a friend in Key West, Florida. The following year, while the refurbishing was underway and near completion they were contacted by the Ministry of Education and was asked to consider bidding on the bussing contract to transport students from three islands, Hope Town, Man-O-War Cay, and Guana Cay.
After much deliberation we decided to jump in, which meant securing two more adequate boats in six weeks. At this point everything shifted from a "side job" to a full time ferry service. On April 6th, 2016 G&L Transportation began full time daily services to all three Cays, transporting workers out early mornings and school kids on the back end, and vice versa in the afternoons. Ever since then, the business has been growing rapidly, currently operating nine ferry boats with further expansion on the horizon. The company's motto, seen on their logo, "hands on to better serve you" is truly what G &L bases their business on. Service is the key to success, and being hands on, on a daily basis is a vital piece of the puzzle. "We grew up here, and live here and understand the needs of the people living or traveling to the Cays as part of their daily routine and we intend to provide a courteous, helpful and friendly service to the people of Abaco at a fair price". Offering group discounts to sports teams and fans traveling to events, church groups and visitors. We try to make it affordable for the many workers that have to travel rough seas to work day in and day out, whilst still keeping that personal service".
G & L Transportation is a young company that has only been in full time operation for three years, but it has a diverse crew of captains, ranging from a few years behind the wheel to 18-20 years of experience as certified captains. The company also happily provides summer jobs to many of the younger generation, encouraging them to hone their skills in the field of marine transportation. G&L is committed to becoming your "Go To" transportation source by offering a comfortable, clean, friendly, and helpful ferry service that can accommodate you in your travels in this uniquely beautiful area of Abaco that God has placed us in.
