Life's a Beach on a Bahamas Yacht Charter

A dreamy constellation of 700 sandy islands, stretching for hundreds of miles off the south-east coast of Florida, the Bahamas is a sailor’s paradise. It’s not hard to see why this Caribbean gateway is one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations.

Warm trade winds guarantee good sailing conditions, and the shallow-shelving, sandy shorelines are ideal for catamarans, whether bareboat, skippered or crewed.

The pristine palm-lined beaches and crystal seas are home to hundreds of unique marine species, from nurse sharks and flamingos to turtles and the Exuma swimming pigs.

Marsh Harbour

Abaco Islands

The northernmost island group, the Abacos are closer to the Atlantic Ocean and provide exceptional sailing conditions and clear nights under a canopy of stars.

Set sail from Marsh Harbour and explore the coast of Great Abaco, visiting the cays that line a magnificent reef that runs the length of the island.

Head for Elbow Cay and explore the iconic red-and-white striped Hope Town Lighthouse, the last surviving kerosene-burning lighthouse in the world.

Green Turtle Cay really lives up to its name, and is a great place to snorkel with these wonderful creatures.

Nassau

Exuma Islands

Home to the famous swimming pigs, the Exumas is a truly spectacular yacht charter destination.

This cruising oasis has a relaxed vibe, blending beach bars with idyllic anchorages and impossibly clear waters.

Shallow depths make the Exumas perfect for a catamaran charter.

Expect to meet the locals, including flamingos, iguana, parrots and sharks - the islands are famous for their incredible biodiversity.

Make sure you visit the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, a vast marine park where you can hike the apparently haunted Boo Boo Hill, and find the giant whale skeleton.
