Abacos Yacht Charter Itinerary
Welcome to the beautiful Abaco islands in the Bahamas. Far removed from the hustle and bustle of Nassau and Freeport. Also known as the Out-Islands. This is the start of your personal Abacos Yacht Charter Itinerary.
During your stay, you’ll discover many Cays. And you’ll have the opportunity to meet many interesting people, as each cay has its own character.
The Sea of Abaco is widely known as one of the world’s premier sailing destinations with its protected waters. You will see: “It’s always better in the Bahamas!”
Transfer from Marsh Harbour airport (10min) and board your yacht. Discover your cabin, relax, and then the captain will proceed with a short briefing about the daily routine and safety on board. Set sail and then anchor at nice spot for the evening. Enjoy welcome drinks at sunset followed by our gourmet dinner at anchor.
After your breakfast in the cockpit, we will raise the sail and we will go to Hope Town. Known for its candy-stripped lighthouse built in 1864which is the last one still hand-wound by the lighthouse keepers. You will have the opportunity to climb on top of the lighthouse (101 steps –but the view over the region and the ocean are well worth the effort).
Hope Town streets are narrow concrete paths set between houses painted in true tropical color combinations: pinks, greens, turquoise, salmon, yellow, blue are all there with gingerbread eaves and picket fences carved with hearts, whales, and pineapples.
You can rent a bike or a golf cart to explore south Elbow Cay. We could organize a picnic basket for you to enjoy the day at the beach if you would like to. And before testing a “Hammer Jack” at the famous Capt. Jack bar with a view of Dream Ketcher, go shopping and visit the local museum to learn more about the first loyalists who founded the settlement. Then, upon your return, aperitif and dinner will be served on board, while waiting to see the lighthouse being lit.
You will leave Hope Town to enjoy Fowl Cay Preserve, the national underwater sea park, a paradise for snorkelers, only 2-hour away. Watercolor is just stunning and you will see groupers, rays, and all the other tropical species.
We will anchor the boat close to the sites we will be visiting and once in the water…you won’t want to leave this place! But to have you out of the water, we promise you the most incredible sunset you have ever seen from Grabbers’ beach in Fisher’s Bay…absolutely fantastic (only 1 ½ hour to get there)!
We will spend the morning in Guana Cay. Enjoying this nice settlement and exploring the reef on Atlantic Beach. Then why not have a great lunch at Nippers? Then, we will sail towards Man-o-War, which will only take 1 ½ hour to discover this special settlement, proudly building boats. The beach is great too and the waters around the anchorage are crystal clear. Kayaking here is fun. In the evening, drinks will be served to enjoy the view over the Sea of Abaco before you taste the last gourmet dinner on board.
In the morning, we will sail back to Marsh Harbour with a stop if we got time for a last swim in our turquoise waters. We anchor in the bay, tendered to the shore where a taxi will transfer you to the airport.
