Time slows down when you take your first step on the pristine Pink Sands Beach on the coast of Dunmore Town. A seafront village that began as a summer residence for the first governor of the Bahamas, Dunmore Town provides picturesque views away from the more touristy spots on the island.
It is easy to get lost in the tropical hideaways of Dunmore Town. This secluded village is the perfect destination for a vacation full of relaxation and fine dining. Air Unlimited will fly you right into North Eleuthera and the only thing separating you from this heavenly town is a ten-minute drive to the ferry dock and a scenic ferry ride over to Harbour Island!
Air Unlimited recommends these historic and relaxing resorts to experience the luxury, elegance and charm of this quaint town in Harbour Island. If you’re ready to dip your toes in crystal blue waters and lay out on powdery pink sand while your skin warms from the rays of the sun, then these are the resorts for you:
- Melt all your worries away on any part of this 20-acre timeless Bahamian jewel that is famously known for leaving a place in your heart – forever. The Pink Sands Resort is historic, classic, elegant and a true beacon of Bahamian luxury. Private, winding and palm-shaded paths meander their way through lush rambling gardens full of flowering hibiscus, frangipani and fruit trees, leading to 29 luxurious cottages, villas and homes. Each cottage was characterized by a British Colonial, old Bahamas aesthetic with a beachy feel, having modern amenities and first-class service.
- The staff of The Dunmore invite their cherished guests to the ever-welcoming island retreat. Breezy patios, vintage rattan, pink conch shells and 1960s glamour is what makes up this resort paradise.

Summer is almost here, and as the weather heats up so does the list of exciting things to do in the Abaco Islands. From celebrating Bahamian Independence to boating events and festivals, everyone in your family is sure to have a great trip to the Abacos this summer.
This year, summer kicks off with the Abaco Goombay Summer Festival, which runs on Friday, June 14th and Friday, June 21st. This family-friendly festival showcases the exciting culture of the Bahamas. You can taste local cuisine, listen to live music and purchase handcrafted Bahamian goods. Better leave some extra room in your suitcase! If you attend this festival, you’ll even experience a Junkanoo rush-out, in which local dance troupes parade through the streets in dazzling, colorful costumes to the island rhythms of goatskin drums, cowbells, bugles and whistles.
Regatta time is another great event taking place in the Abacos this summer, and it is the perfect way to get in some time on the water while competing with other racing boats. Regatta Time officially begins on June 25th and runs through July 4th. The race kicks off in Marsh Harbour, and boaters will spend the following days sailing through some of the most beautiful islands in the Abacos.
Looking for the ultimate party this summer? You have to check out the Cheeseburger in Paradise party in Green Turtle Cay. This event began in the 1980s as a way for Jimmy Buffet fans to meet up and spend some time together under the tropical sunshine. Since then, the party has grown, and partygoers can spend the day boat hopping with their families. Did we mention that record-breaking numbers of free margaritas and hamburgers are given out each year at this event? This one-day-only party is set for July 2nd, so make your plans now.
The Bahamas is also excited to celebrate 46 years as a fully independent nation on July 10th. The Bahamas separated from the United Kingdom on July 10, 1973, but it remains a member of The Commonwealth of Nations. Join locals to celebrate with a week of Junkanoo, carnival parades and firework displays.
With so many exciting events happening in the Abacos this summer, it’s no surprise that Air Unlimited is expanding its flight options. Book your trip to the Abacos today at www.flyairunlimited.com, and experience any of the incredible celebrations happening this summer. You might experience something new, or simply have a great time enjoying the culture and the sunshine with your friends and family.
Many flights from Florida to the Bahamas cost several hundred dollars, yet still expect travelers to endure long security lines, dreaded layovers and additional parking, pet and baggage fees (which can really add up). In fact, a study conducted by the International Air Transport Association shows that a majority of flyers believe a few airport hassles top the rest, including how much time is wasted, the inconvenience of security and the hassle of checking luggage. Are you interested in how a luxury flight experience avoids these dreaded travel pains – at a price that’s more affordable than you’d think? If so, Air Unlimited has insight on how a little extra investment might be worth it for travelers in search of stress-free travel.
At Air Unlimited, up to nine guests are invited to fly in style for the affordable price of a commercial first-class ticket. Daily flights are available from Sanford, Florida to the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, and tickets include free luggage up to 40 lbs., free valet parking and quick security. The experience has you arriving at the hangar and boarding the plane in a fraction of the time of any commercial airline. Then, the flight is just over an hour to paradise with every seat featuring plenty of legroom and outstanding window views. Additionally, our direct flights mean you won’t waste any vacation time at a connecting airport, and instead, you will be able to spend more time exploring the islands.
Based in Sanford, Florida, Air Unlimited serves travelers not only statewide, but nationwide too, and a luxury flight experience isn’t the only thing attracting customers from far-and-wide. Central Florida is a destination that millions of people seek to visit throughout the year. With people from all over the country visiting Central Florida as a touch point to board a cruise and head to the tropical islands – it makes sense to take a luxury flight to the islands instead. Tourists flocking the region for its famed theme parks, entertainment and dining can consider extending their vacation to include a quick flight to the Bahamas as the cherry-on-top to a perfect trip.
Regardless of the journey that brings you to our hangar, Air Unlimited ensures that a hassle-free experience awaits you at our front door.

You can book your next trip online, and if you plan to frequent the islands, we also offer a Book of Coupons with an annual fixed price and added traveler benefits.
It’s no secret that we strive for perfection at Air Unlimited, and a big part of our success rests in the hands of our world-class pilots. Our pilots know that each passenger expects the very best when booking a luxury flight experience. Because of this, they go out of their way to offer exceptional service and treat every passenger like part of the family.
You may wonder why our pilots enjoy going above and beyond for our passengers, and the answer is simple: they truly love what they do. Co-founders, Mark Neubauer, and Chick Gregg, are both pilots that appreciate aviation and all it has to offer. By sharing their expertise and passion for aviation with the rest of the crew, Mark and Chick lead by example, helping the entire team feel inspired.
Outside of work, many of Air Unlimited’s pilots enjoy flying in their free time, keeping their skills sharp for our passengers. For some, this love of flying started at a young age. In fact, Pilots Todd Sickle, Ron Bernard, and Ed Moon discovered the wonders of flight as children. Ed decided he wanted to be a pilot at only 14 years old. As a child, Ron was fascinated with model airplanes, and nowadays he’s fascinated by the real thing. Similarly, Todd grew up next to the Orlando International Airport and began watching planes take-off and land early on. After 21 years of flying experience, he continues to enjoy frequent flights and getting to know the passengers.
For other Air Unlimited pilots, flying is in their blood – at least that’s what our Pilot Greg Rupp says! Pilots Dave Owen, Alan Griffin, Chick Gregg, and Mark Neubauer also had fathers or grandfathers who were pilots. Hearing their family stories of aviation helped spark an interest in flying.
Chief Pilot, Josh Stover, graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, where his passion for aviation expanded as he learned all about flight. Interested in passing on his knowledge of aviation, Josh became a flight instructor at the school, before ultimately joining the Air Unlimited crew.
Realizing that passion is developed early in life, our pilots are now dedicated to inspiring children through our Junior Pilot Program, which allows kids to get an up close and personal look at life as a pilot. Children are invited into the co-pilot seat on a flight to the Abacos, where they can witness spectacular views, see how the equipment works, and ask our pilots questions about aviation. Through this program, we hope to spark the next generation of pilots.
We can tell you about our pilots’ passions and skills, and our great services and programs, but why not show you instead? Next time you plan a trip to the Abaco Islands, let us do the flying. We promise you’ll be in good hands and will enjoy a luxury flight experience with Air Unlimited. Book online at www.flyairunlimited.com.
