Private Yacht Charter: Bahamas, here you come

Scattered like dabs of possibility on an adventurer’s palette, the Bahamas are ready-made for exploration and there is no better way to explore than on a Bahamas luxury yacht charter.

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 Nina, 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 why travel by private yacht charter? The Bahamas almost demands it. There’s sailing to Abacos. Diving Andros’ blue holes. Kayaking the countless cays around Exumas. Lounging on Eleuthera’s beaches. Pondering pirates in Nassau. Indeed, there’s a Bahamian island to match most every water-and-sand-based compulsion on a Bahamas luxury yacht charter. Each of them framed by a backdrop of gorgeous, mesmerizing blues and greens. All this means that once you know how to charter a yacht, there’s no excuse not to. Paint your own adventure, the palette awaits.

The Exumas

Whether snorkeling, exploring the uninhabited cays, or enjoying a cocktail onboard, the Exumas’ crisp palette of ocean blues provides the perfect backdrop for  creating memories With 365 cays extending over 100 miles, there is more than enough adventure to go around on a private yacht charter. Bahamas favourite Staniel Cay is an activity hub 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 Crusoe for the day in the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park. Swim in bath-like waters with friendly sea pigs on Pig Beach. The Exumas offer a Bahamas luxury yacht charter vacation with a difference.

Abaco Islands

The largely uninhabited Abaco Islands lie less than 200 miles east of South Florida, and are easily accessible by flying into Marsh Harbour. Great Abaco and Little Abaco, along with smaller barrier cays make up the island chain. They are protected by the third largest barrier reef in the world and are an excellent destination for fishing, diving and water sports. Your superyacht crew will recommend some excellent spots to visit, including Great Guana Cay, Man-O-War Cay, Spanish Cay, Green Turle Cay, and Hope Town on Elbow Cay. With similar weather to South Florida, the Abaco Islands are the perfect spot to escape with friends and family onboard a Bahamas luxury yacht charter.

Eleuthra

You haven’t experienced a real escape until you’ve vacationed in Eleuthera, one of our all-time favourite yacht charter destinations. Simple breathtaking views are the norm, deserted expanses of white- or pink-sand beaches are your playground, and islanders are genuinely friendly. The low-key, relax-and-relax-some-more island vacation isn’t for everyone, but when you need to recharge your batteries on a private yacht charter, Bahamas  sun and seclusion in Eleuthera is just what the doctor ordered. Make sure to stop at Harbour Island, often called the Nantucket of the Caribbean, offering 3 miles 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 –  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 Out Islands are begging to be explored by the adventurous or those who want to just get away from the hustle and bustle on a Bahamas luxury yacht charter.
