Bahamas Yacht Charter

The Bahamas are perfect for a yacht charter – the key is to know which of the many distinct islands you should include in your itinerary.

With some 700 islands and uninhabited cays, The Bahamas were made for the waterborne. Lying in a gentle east-west curve just 50 miles south of the US coast of Florida, the cruising possibilities during a Bahamas superyacht charter are endless. Fortunately, nature and practicalities will help narrow the choice of which islands to discover.

From New Providence Island and the cosmopolitan Nassau to the Exuma islands’ remote string of pearl-like cays or the scalloped bays and coves of the Abacos, there is something for everyone. You’ll find quaint restaurants and bars, golf courses, and boutiques on the larger islands. While the smaller isles being remote and unspoiled, offer luxuries that money can’t buy. Sampling a bit of both worlds is the ideal combination.

If you’re in search of endless water and beach activities, look no further than a yacht charter in The Bahamas. Marine life abounds in The Bahamas with unspoiled reefs. Every island group has countless snorkeling and diving sites beckoning you to explore the underwater world. If you want to experience the freshest seafood you can get or go home with your fishing tale; you’re lucky because The Bahamas is home to world-class sports fishing. From offshore fishing for blue marlin and Mahi to inshore fishing for bonefish, The Bahamas is ideally suited for all types of sports fishing. Beach lovers will be in paradise in The Bahamas. From the uninhabited beaches of the Exumas to the pink sand beaches of Eleuthera to the luxury resort beaches of Nassau, there is a beach for every type in The Bahamas.

Nassau, the nation’s capital, is an ideal place to begin your Bahamas yacht charter. Offering an abundance of restaurants, golf courses, shopping and the famed Atlantis resort on Paradise Island, it is a great place to spend a day or two before cruising onto other islands.

The Exuma Islands are the most popular cruising area in the archipelago, but don’t let the moniker “popular” make you think they are crowded, as they are anything but. Comprising 365 islands, islets and cays with anchorages from an hour to seven hours apart, there is plenty of space to find privacy, even during the peak cruising season – so where you go depends on how many islands you want to visit.

Once you experience a yacht charter in the Bahamas, you’ll see why people come back again and again.
