Cruise on a Bahamas yacht charter and discover your tropical paradise. The Bahamas are made up of over 700 islands to immerse yourself in sun-soaked days, pristine beaches, and thrilling nights.
There is only one way to get the best Bahamas experience—aboard a luxury superyacht. Cruise from island to island with ease, each one just as gorgeous as the next. Dock in Nassau or Paradise Island, where you can test your luck at the casinos or even swim with dolphins. You can head east from Nassau and dock on the exceptional shores of Harbour Island, known as the Nantucket of the Caribbean for its charming architecture and atmosphere, highlighted by its natural wonders.
Leave the modern world behind and go to the Exumas. Due to the shallow waters, you won’t find crowds here. Jet ski around the 365 secluded cays, or anchor near Major Cay, where you’ll be greeted by swimming pigs. Head to Abacos, the boating capital of the Bahamas. The quaint colonial towns, championship golf courses, and world-class fishing will make you want to stay forever.
Choose from over 700 lush islands and countless enchanting hideouts. With the help of your expert yacht crew aboard your Bahamas yacht charter, you will discover only the finest and the best of the Bahamas. The possibilities are endless.
Explore- These tropical islands are packed with an array of events and adventures. Yacht enthusiasts delight in the National Family Island Regatta, where the best Bahamian sailors flock to Elizabeth Harbour to win the title of “Best in the Bahamas.” This event is widely celebrated by locals and travelers from around the globe, causing quite the stir on the clear-blue waters. If you are cruising the islands around New Year’s Eve, attend the colorful Junkanoo Parade and party with the locals to ring in the New Year. You’ll have a night filled with dancing and lively music. Numerous other exciting events and festivals take place each year.
If you’re passionate about art, many fine galleries are scattered throughout the islands. At Leo’s Art Gallery, browse the symbolic and vivid paintings of a brilliant local artist and Nassau native. Stop at The National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, where you can view a wide range of stunning work by local artists. On most islands, you’ll find small shops and boutiques, offering a wide variety of specialty items and crafts made by local artisans.
The natural beauty is intoxicating. Soak in the shimmering water of the famous Thunderball Grotto, and experience your James Bond moment. Here, swim the mysterious underwater pathways with brilliant parrotfish and angelfish. Snorkel the reef to spot stromatolites, some of the oldest fossils in the world. Explore the largest uncharted system of caves in Lucayan National Park.
Spend the morning golfing at the Royal Blue Golf Course, a Jack Nicklaus signature design. At the Abaco Club, tee off with a remarkable view of the Atlantic Ocean and the “most talked about closing hole in the Caribbean.” This course was designed by iconic course architects Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie. There are so many courses here that you could just as easily go course hopping, while you island hop.
From endless natural wonders to championship golfing and fine art, you’re never too far from your next adventure aboard your Bahamas yacht charter.
Diving- Divers love the Bahamas for the crystal-clear waters and vibrant underwater world. Explore Runway Wall, a popular dive site with colossal pinnacles, teeming with turtles, sharks, and rays. At Cut Current, check out the famous drift diving and let the current take you through the striking aquatic landscape. Near the Exuma Cays, dive the Austin Smith wreck, its two pieces sit on the sea bottom 59 feet below, and seabob with reef sharks and grouper. Plunge in the waters near Amberjack Reef, bustling with a wide variety of marine life from sharks to eagle rays. Sugar Wreck, just 20 feet below, is another popular site among divers for its ease of access and abundance of snappers, grunts, angelfish, and parrotfish. Skilled divers should check out Blue Hole, one of the top three dive sites in Nassau. The striking rock formations, swarming with turtles, stingrays, and sharks, will captivate you. There are so many diving opportunities for all levels of divers on your Bahamas yacht charter.
Beaches- With a collection of 700 islands and numerous cays, the Bahamas are home to the world’s finest beaches. Stroll the shimmering sands of Harbor Island’s Pink Sands Beach, which is consistently ranked among the world’s best beaches. Soak in the exquisitely warm waters of the Queen’s Baths, the sight of the rock formations alone is breathtaking. Swim with the famous pigs at Big Major Cay. It’s rumored that the pigs were left behind by shipwrecked sailors. Snorkel at Cabbage Beach on Paradise Island, or anchor out at sea and jump off the back of your yacht for a swim. For a more private sandy shore, go out to Guana Cay in the Abacos for uncrowded white sands to relish an intimate picnic prepared by your personal chef. Hop on a jet ski near Cave Beach. Survey the rocky coast and mysterious limestone caves. On your Bahamas yacht charter, you’re sure to find an enchanting sandy shore to call your very own.
Fishing- The Bahamas are a must-fish destination for all serious anglers. The blue waters surrounding the island of Andros are home to the Caribbean’s largest population of bonefish. When you go fly fishing on these flats, you can catch bonefish from sunup to sun down. Take the kids reef fishing for grouper, or head out on the open waters for a day of deep-sea fishing. Battle a colossal marlin or wahoo near the island of Bimini, which holds over fifty record-setting catches. Test your skill in the Bacardi Billfish Tournament, held in March, or the Bahamas Billfish Championship, held between April and June with four venues and times. By the end of your Bahamas yacht charter, you’ll have fish tales to tell for years to come.
History- In the Bahamas, each island is buoyed up by a rich and varied history. At Clifton Heritage National Park in Nassau, learn about the early settlers such as the Lucayan Indians, Africans, and Europeans. Head over to Fort Charlotte, the largest of Nassau’s forts dating back to 1789. Don’t miss the Queen’s Staircase, which was carved out of limestone by slaves over the course of 16 years using only hand tools and pickaxes. Yacht enthusiasts and history buffs alike should be sure to stop at Man O’ War Cay, where you can learn about the island’s extensive boat building history. In Eleuthera, tour Preacher’s Cave, where shipwrecked Eleutheran Adventurers spent their first days on the island in 1648. These people were the first to establish settlements in the Bahamas.
