Or, you may want to do something more active like fishing, biking, golfing, snorkeling, or diving. Whatever you choose to do, you are guaranteed to enjoy gorgeous scenery at every turn.

Exuma Cays

The Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park is an archipelago located in central Exuma, Bahamas. These cays are one of two locations where swimming with dolphins is permitted in The Bahamas. The park also has a variety of other activities for tourists to enjoy including hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling.

Enjoy the stunning views of turquoise waters and white sand beaches as you sail around on your private Bahamas yacht charter.

One of the most popular attractions in the Bahamas is swimming with the pigs at Big Major Cay. visit the amazing marine life that exists just below the surface of the water by snorkeling or scuba diving.

Staniel Cay

Be sure to check out Staniel Cay, a tiny island off Great Exuma Island that boasts shops, restaurants, and hotels. It’s only accessible by boat or plane so you’ll need your own yacht charter from Nassau if you want to visit. One of the best ways to experience the true beauty of Staniel Cay is by going on an excursion out into the ocean. You can go parasailing, kayaking, snorkeling or just exploring the beautiful reefs around this area.

New Providence Island

In addition, we recommend visiting New Providence Island. With its cosmopolitan vibe, it’s one of our favorite places in The Bahamas! There's so much to see and do, from snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins, to exploring historical sites like Fort Charlotte. And of course, while visiting you can't forget to enjoy the delicious food and rum!

What's more, you can go fishing or snorkeling, visit one of many nature preserves or learn about local history at a museum.
Nassau is also home to Fort Fincastle, which was built by British soldiers in 1793. It's now a public park that's covered with pink flamingos and other native species. You can even do birdwatching here if you're so inclined.

Bahamas Yacht Charter | History

Christopher Columbus first made landfall in the Bahamas in 1492, upon which he encountered a subgroup of Arawakan-speaking Taino people. These native inhabitants were known as the Lucayans, and are believed to be the first inhabitants of the Bahamas. After the Spanish conquest, the British began to settle the islands in 1647. The Bahamas gained independence from Britain in 1973, but the British government retained responsibility for defense and foreign affairs.

Thus, many Bahamians have ties to Britain, and there are political parties supporting secession from the Commonwealth of Nations. In addition to sugar, molasses, rum, fresh fish (caught locally), nickel ore (a raw material source), sisal, and hemp, the country's capital city is located on the island of New Providence. The tourism industry has replaced fishing as one of the major economic activities, with about two million tourists visiting each year.

Ninety percent of its visitors come from the United States. About one-third of the population lives in Nassau or within 25 miles of Nassau. Manufacturing accounts for a significant part of the economy, producing clothing and other goods such as cigarettes, paintbrushes, plastics, furniture, aluminum foil, toys, shoes, and clothing.

Bahamas Yacht Charter | Marinas

There are marinas on nearly every significant island. Some marinas include Bay Street Marina, Albany Marina, Lyford Cay Club Marina, Palm Cay Marina in Nassau, Emerald Bay Marina in Great Exuma, Port Lucaya Marina in Freeport, and Highbourne Cay Marina in Highbourne Cay. Also, the new Norman Cay Marina in the Exumas as of 2022.
