Bahamas Sailing Vacations

The Bahamas is a large archipelago that’s just a 90-minute flight from the coast of Florida. Sail the Bahamas to follow the path of ancient pirates, visiting the low-lying Abaco and Exuma island chains with their sparkling sands and shallow, azure water.

Abaco has 120 miles of cays and islands, showcasing some of the finest beaches, sheltered anchorages, coves and British colonial architecture. Head to the 365 cays of the Exumas during your Bahamas charter and stroll the famous sandbar, explore endless white beaches or sail a magnificent marine park.

If you want to get closer to nature, you can see iguanas, sharks, dolphins, rays and tropical fish, as well as green parrots. You can even meet the famous swimming pigs of the bahamas. 

Feeling adventurous? The Bahamas is great for kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, snorkeling and diving in the warm clear waters of the Bahamas. But, whether you want to relax, enjoy the marine life, enjoy the delicious local cuisine or just relax on a beautiful beach, our Bahamas yacht charters will have something for everyone.

Just returned from another fantastic sailing week at your base in Pula and I would like to thank everyone involved for making this possible on such short notice and without any problems.

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”

Jonathan

Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.

David

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.

Charlie

British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.
