Renting a car and boat on Cat Island?

In mid-May we are staying at Greenwood Beach Resort for 5 nights. Have read the postings for Cat Island and see where having a car for a day or two is advised, but not where to rent one. Please advise. And is it possible to rent a boat and go out and about the island yourself, or do you need to have a captain? And where would you recommend we rent a boat? Is is possible to visit a nearby island for the day with a captain, or is it too far?

Contact Captain CudaJohnny at www.fishcatisland.com he rents a small boat and does charters. He is a fun captain!

We returned yesterday from Cat Island. We were there for 8 nights and rented a car for the entire trip. We had a great time exploring. I think your hotel could arrange it for you. We did drop in the Greenwood for lunch. It is a really beautiful place. You will be in good hands!

Hi -You can rent a car from Newbolds or from Harry King at the Lakeview in Port Howe, which is nearest to Greenwood. Or Gilberts which is nearer to the New Bight airport. I'd just have the folks at Greenwood help you arrange it after you arrive. Have fun.

The grocery store in New Bight has lots of RHD "jeeps" and a couple of RHD Mercedes C sedans. 242-342-3169

The gas station in New Bight has lots of LHD American "jeeps." 242-342-3014

The vehicles in both places appear to be in good shape.
