The Destination | Bahamas

You can’t go wrong with a yacht charter in the Bahama Islands. These stunning islands are close to the United States and have fantastic year-round weather. There is an activity for everyone in your group, no matter their age or interests.

In addition, outdoor enthusiasts will be thrilled by all the water sports, hiking trails, and golf courses. Children will be contented on the powder-soft sand beaches with shallow water, perfect for making sand castles. Adults will love the romantic evenings aboard the yacht or on shore at a lively beach bar.

Whatever your interests, there is something for you in the Bahamas. A few highlights to consider for your vacation are:

  • Nassau, New Providence. Pools, beaches, nightlife, spas, and entertainment are just a few things to enjoy at the Atlantis Resort. Indeed, you could spend an entire day exploring all this resort offers.
  • Abaco Islands. These out islands are defined by uninterrupted beauty, miles of nearly deserted beaches, and warm sunshine. Although the Abaco Islands are still recovering from 2019’s devastating Hurricane Dorian, there is much to see and do here. The Abacos are fantastic for fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and beach combing.
  • Bimini. Since Bimini is also known as the sportfishing capital of the world, you will have to cast a line and see if you can catch the big one.
  • Berry Islands. The Berry Islands are called “The Fish Bowl of the Bahamas.” Moreover, you’ll see why they received this nickname when you snorkel or scuba dive here.

The Destination | South Florida

South Florida is close to home, but aboard a luxury yacht, you will feel worlds away from the stresses of daily life. Relax in sublime surroundings and let your yacht crew attend to your every need.

Highlights of a South Florida charter include West Palm Beach, Ft Lauderdale, Miami, South Beach, and Key Largo.

These are just samplings of Bahamas motor-yacht charter vacation options to enjoy a Private Yacht Charter in the Bahamas and the Abacos Islands, Exumas, or Harbour Island with Eleuthera.
