Bahamas YACHT CHARTER

The perfect destination to spend endless days exploring its beautiful, colourful and seemingly countless islands, the Bahamas is known as a paradise refugee for a good reason. Ideally explored by water, this region, which spans over 259,000 square kilometres, is home to breathtakingly beautiful white sand beaches, picture-perfect towns and small, hidden cays. Famous for attracting many of the most notorious pirates of the past, who made the best use of its warm, sheltered waters and deep caves to hide their looted treasure, it is a haven for sea lovers of all ages. Explore its barrier reefs, swim alongside its famous wild pigs and take in all of its natural beauty.

INSIDER INFO

Receiving minimal damage from the storms in 2019, Harbour Island and Eleuthera marina are ready to welcome visitors once more. Offering a mix of the best scuba diving locations in the area with hidden anchorage spots and remote islands, its azure waters allow for diving in all settings – from coral reefs to wrecks and deep blue holes.

CAPE ELEUTHERA MARINA

Board your yacht at Cape Eleuthera Marina, which was virtually untouched by the hurricane. Enjoy a leisurely cruise to Bamboo Point, where you can partake in a refreshing dive in the crystal clear waters.

SPANISH WELLS

Located just off the northern tip of Eleuthera, this small settlement is renowned for its harvesting of Bahamian lobster/crawfish. Take some time to explore this quaint fishing village and be sure to sample a few of its many delicious native dishes.

STANIEL CAY

Get up close and personal with sharks at Compass Cay Marina. Swim with these ancient creatures and then explore the Rocky Dundas. Snorkel through stalactite and stalagmite formations. Afterwards, relax on one of the island’s beaches and walk through the tidal pools as the bubbling lagoon.

COMPASS CAY

One of the very finest spot to encounter the famed Bahamas swimming pigs. Compass Cay is one of the prime yachting location, with pristine beaches and stunning marine life.

HARBOUR ISLAND

Let the old-school charm and glamour of the alluring Harbour Island wash over you. This tiny island is dotted with pastel-coloured, 19th-century colonial cottages that line the harbour front. Walk along its famous pink sand beach before splashing in its crystal clear waters.

The charter season in the Bahamas spreads pretty much year-round, with balmy climes and shallow waters making it more or less ideal to cruise all year round. However, the peak charter season is from mid-December to the end of April. The best time to charter a yacht in the Bahamas is going to be around Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve, and Easter.

Most of the yacht charters in the Bahamas will start in Nassau with a vibrant nightlife, iconic scenery, and proximity to high-end resorts. The renowned Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, with exciting casinos and fine dining options.

Our charter broker Bradley Van-Rooyen cruised the Bahamas extensively in his previous life aboard a successful charter yacht and pulled together the following sports for you:

- Nassau - Golf, restaurants, nightlife, casinos.
- Rose Island - Uninhabited private Island to enjoy the private beaches. Perfect for picnics and beach BBQs.
