Explore Harbour Island on a luxury superyacht charter

At the heart of Harbour Island lies Dunmore Town, the island’s sole community, exuding New England-style charm with its colonial clapboard houses and vibrant architecture. 

Despite being a stomping ground for the rich and famous, the island maintains an unassuming and down-to-earth atmosphere. The best way to fully explore the island’s offerings is by renting a golf cart or embarking on leisurely walks, immersing yourself in the vibrant surroundings. The island’s colorful architecture and rich history add an extra layer of allure to your journey.

Crystal-clear waters and incredible snorkeling and diving

Embark on a Harbour Island superyacht charter and immerse yourself in the crystal-clear waters that beckon for exploration. 

Just 0.6 miles south of The Glass Window Bridge from North Eleuthera, you’ll discover The Queen’s Baths, a collection of natural pools perfect for a relaxing soak in a natural sauna-like setting. 

To further satiate your snorkeling desires during a Harbour Islands yacht charter, venture to the Devil’s Backbone at the northern end of Eleuthera. Here, a snorkeler’s paradise awaits, teeming with angelfish, snapper, stingrays, and awe-inspiring coral formations. Marvel at the remnants and ancient anchors of ships that succumbed to the jagged coral, creating a shallow diving experience ranging from five to thirty-five feet in depth.

Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the island’s unassuming yet luxurious hotels, offering unimaginable views during your superyacht charter. Enjoy a refreshing drink while savoring the delectable cuisine at their restaurants, and spend your restful nights aboard your charter yacht.
