What is the name of the ferry company you used from Barbados to Bequia? We used the small airlines, SVG air and it was very expensive.

We took the ferry from St. Vincent to Bequia. The Bequia Express - the "red ferry", it's 45EC round trip. I think there is a ferry from Barbados - the "orange ferry", but I have no idea how it runs.
