Bahamas yacht charter itinerary
A Bahamas yacht charter is the ideal location for luxury yacht holidays in the Caribbean. The area consists of three different island chains, each of which offers a variety of crystal-clear waters, world-class fishing and spectacular diving locations to enjoy on your yacht charter in the Bahamas. Read our sample itinerary to get a taste of your Caribbean yacht charter in the Bahamas.
day 1 Begin at Nassau Paradise Island
Begin your Bahamas yacht charter at Nassau Paradise Island, where you depart from for the Exuma Islands. These islands form a string of pearls that include a variety of natural harbours and secluded beaches that span over a hundred miles of clear blue water. For breakfast pull into the secluded Allan's Cay Group where you may catch a glimpse of the Bahamian Dragon, a critically endangered species of iguana. Spend the evening anchored off the western shore of Highborne Cay.
day 2 The Harbour Club Restaurant, Caves and Beaches at Bell Island
On the second day of your yacht charter in the Caribbean, set sail for Fowl Cay where you can enjoy a fine lunch and maybe even a cocktail at the Harbour Club Restaurant. During the afternoon you might choose to visit the Caves at Rocky Dondas, which provide a great location for snorkeling. If you fancy relaxing, visit Bell Island, a simply gorgeous location, where chances are you'll have the beaches all to yourself.
day 3 Staniel Cay and Thunderball Grotto
Staniel Cay is the cruising headquarters for the Exuma Cays. The island is well known for the friendliness of its people, its beautiful clear waters and its secluded beaches. Staniel Cay is a also a great location for bone, reef and deep-sea fishing, but it is perhaps best known as the location for the James Bond movies Thunderball and Never Say Never Again. The 'Thunderball Grotto' is one of the most outstanding snorkelling locations of the entire Bahamas and is not to be missed!
day 4 Great Guana Cay
In the morning head for Great Guana Cay, a 9 mile long islet where you will find a five and a half mile long beach, the longest in the Bahamas. In the afternoon, why not head to the Farmer's Cay Yacht Club and Marina, with its beautiful surroundings, intimate atmosphere and its warm and friendly people.
day 5 Wardrick Wells
Wardrick Wells is the destination for the fifth day of your Bahamas superyacht vacation in the Caribbean and it is likely to provide memories that will last you a lifetime. Established as a Land and Sea Park in the mid-1980s, Wardrick Wells is a paradise to behold. It offers miles of hiking trails for walkers and its crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkeling.
day 6 Wildlife at Shroud Cay
Head for Shroud Cay, an uninhabited island comprised of an archipelago of small cays and rocks surrounding a shallow mangrove salina. Owned by Exuma Park, Shroud Cay provides a unique nursery for a huge variety of wildlife, including sea turtles, conch and crawfish. Most of the waterways and creeks at Shroud Cay are only accessible by dinghy or waverunner and tourists should be careful to maintain a low speed when exploring the northern creek.
day 7 Amazing Atlantis
On the final day of your luxury yacht charter why not head to Paradise Island and explore the Atlantis, the Bahamas' very own 'Vegas-by-the-sea'. While this may not be the place for architectural purists, one cannot fail to be impressed by its scale and grandeur and in terms of entertainment there really is something for everyone. Atlantis has a large Casino, great restaurants and clubs, amazing aquariums and arguably some of the most spectacular waterslides in the world!
