Scattered like dabs of possibility on an adventurer’s palette, the Bahamas are ready-made for exploration. Just ask Christopher Columbus, he bumped against these limestone landscapes in 1492 and changed the course of history. But adventure didn’t end with the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. From pirates to blockade dodgers to rum smugglers, wily go-getters have converged and caroused on the country’s 700 islands and 2400 cays for centuries.

So what’s in it for a Yachtsmen? There’s sailing to Abacos. Diving Andros' blue holes. Kayaking the countless cays around Exumas. Lounging on Eleuthera's beaches. Pondering pirates in Nassua. Indeed, there’s a Bahamian island to match most every water-and-sand-based compulsion. Each of them framed by a backdrop of gorgeous, mesmerizing blues and greens. Paint your own adventure, the palette awaits.

Exumas

Life’s is just better in the Exumas. Whether Snorkeling, Exploring the uninhabited cays, or enjoying a cocktail while cruising, a crisp palette of ocean blues creates a memory every day. With 365 cays extending over 100 miles, there is more than enough adventure to go around. Staniel Cay is the activity hub in the cays, and a favorite destination of yachters. Across from Staniel Cay is the James Bond famous Thunderball Grotto a great place to snorkel or scuba. Pretend to be Robinson Crusoes for the day in the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park. The Family Island Regatta is the perfect time for a gregarious yachtsmen to mix their way to the perfect on-deck cocktail. The Exumas offer the perfect yachting vacation.

Eleuthera

You haven't experienced a real escape until you've vacationed in Eleuthera. Simple breath-taking views are the norm, deserted expanses of white- or pink-sand beaches are your playground, and islanders are genuinely friendly. Although the low-key, relax-and-relax-some-more island vacation isn't for everyone, Eleuthera is the place to go when you need to recharge your batteries. Seclusion, sun, and leisure are just what the doctor ordered. Make sure to stop at Harbour Island, often called the Nantucket of the Caribbean it has 3 miles worth of pink beaches. North of Eleuthera is the fishing community of Spanish Wells which resembles a tropical New England town.

Out Islands

East of the Exumas and South of Eleuthera, the Southern Bahamas feels unspoiled by the modern world. Cat Island is dotted with relics of old Pineapple plantations from early colonial times. Cat Island is also home to the highest point in the Bahamas complete with a stone abbey hermitage at the peak. South of Cat Island, San Salvador rises up out of the ocean and the location of Christopher Columbus’ landfall. San Salvador is surrounded by a steep drop off of the ocean floor perfect for fishing and diving. The Southern Bahamas is begging to be explored by the adventurous or those who want to just get away from the hustle and bustle.
