The Bahamas are so close to home that they are often overlooked as a vacation destination. After all, if you can fly to a place in three hours from New York City or boat there in two hours from Fort Lauderdale, then how secluded and magical can it really be?
Plenty! The Bahamas are one of the best-kept secrets in cruising
thanks to their protected, shallow waters that are inaccessible to cruise ships. Only yachties are in the know about the true beauty of the place because only yachts can access the majority of the islands. Various Bahamian archipelagos, including the Abacos and Exumas, offer some of the world’s best fishing, snorkeling, and beaches. They just don’t get advertised as often as, say, the Caribbean because many of them are accessible only by private yacht.

That’s great news if you want to do one of our Caribbean yacht charters in the Bahamas this summer, which is prime time in terms of seasonal water and air temperatures. The water rarely drops below 80 degrees Fahrenheit between June and October, while the air temperature stays between about 75 and 90 degrees. Days are filled with sunshine and water sports while evenings are enjoyed in light wraps and shirtsleeves under starry skies.
Some highlights of a Bahamas yacht charter can include snorkeling in Thunderball Cave (yes, the one that 007 Sean Connery escaped from in the movie Thunderball), feeding carrots to longtime local Emily the Pig as your yacht’s tender cruises to Big Major Island, and touring Hope Town’s red-and-white-striped lighthouse, which is one of the last kerosene-powered lighthouses working anywhere in the world.
