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.
