Day 1 - Saturday: Marsh Harbour
Boarding at 18:00. Dinner and over night onboard in Conch Inn & Marina.
Day 2 - Sunday: Marsh Harbour – Great Guana Cay
We will gently cruise toward Great Guana Cay where we will drop anchor off a lovely cay in Fishers Bay. Great Guana is the home of the world famous Nippers Bar with its equally famous Sunday hog roast as well as Grabbers Bar and Grill. Set with a back drop of a beautiful Atlantic long white beach, Great Guana Cay is perfect for taking long walks and those iconic white sand beach shots that grace the pages of glossy travel magazines. Beach combing, snorkelling, diving (with extra charge) or just walking along the beach – there is something for everyone.
Day 3 - Monday: Great Guana Cay – Man .O. War
After lunch we will set off to Man .O. War which is a sleepy, but prosperous and beautifully maintained settlement. Visit the sail shop to purchase souvenirs, t-shirts and Man .O. War Sail bags. Then, see the famous Albury family’s Bahamian work boats and boat building facility, which continues to manufacture both small and larger vessels in the town. Snorkeling can be found on the north ocean side of the island, a short 15-minute walk away.
Day 4 – Tuesday: Man .O. War – Hope Town
Cruise to Elbow Cay where you’ll be greeted by the well-photographed red and white striped lighthouse – one of only three kerosene lighted, manned lighthouses remaining in the world. Stroll the quaint cobblestone streets where you can find restaurants, markets, boutiques and the local dive shop. Visit the small museum and then eat at one of the many restaurants surrounding the harbor. Or choose to rent a golf cart to explore the island.
Day 5 – Wednesday: Hope Town to Little Harbour – on the way stop to Sandy Cay National Park – Little Harbour South of Abaco
Because we use shallow draft catamarans you are able to step off the boat and wade through crystal blue waters onto Sandy Cay National Park where you can have lunch and enjoy snorkeling. The crystal-clear waters are shallow and the sand is very soft – is there a better way to get to such a beautiful beach and snorkel site? After lunch, we sail up to Little Harbour, which is one of the most picturesque harbours in the Bahamas. Go ashore at Little Harbour to enjoy a visit to Pete’s Pub & Gallery, the famous beach bar and art gallery.
Day 6 – Thursday: South of Abaco – Tahiti Beach
Get up early so we can sail down to Tahiti Beach South of Abaco to find our own secluded island. Spend the day lying on the beach or snorkelling the reefs with its abundance of sea. There is nothing like having an island all to yourself. Spend your early evening drinking cocktails whilst watching the sunset.
Day 7 - Friday: Tahiti Beach – Matt Lowes Cay – Marsh Harbour
A delicious breakfast and we head back toward Marsh Harbour stopping at Matt Lowes Cay. We enjoy swimming in the Sea of Abaco before heading back to our marina for dinner and then perhaps celebrating our fantastic week with the local people whilst listening to local bands nearby.
Day 8 - Saturday: Disembarkation at 10:00
After breakfast, we swap emails and photos and we send you home with great memories and anticipation for your next sailing vacation with Dream yacht Charter and our By the Cabin Vacations team.
