Bahamas

Spread over 100,000 square miles, incorporating over 700 islands and cays, the Bahamas have a wealth of variety to offer those seeking luxury superyacht charters in these beautiful waters. You will not be crowded out or forced to leave that perfect anchorage.

The main airport for the region is the Capital Nassau, and a cruise may start here on the wonderfully named Paradise Island. Meet your superyacht here, then cruise to the North-east to the Abocos, known as Nantucket under the Palms, where you can visit Green Turtle Bay, Elbow Cay, the underwater wonders at Pelican Bay National Park, or the fabulous beaches of Treasure Isle.

Alternatively cruise to the South-east into the waters of the Exumas, 120 miles long with 365 cays – deserted beaches, swimming with not another soul in sight, snorkeling while schools of fish, depicting the colours of the rainbow, brush past you. For dive enthusiasts, a visit to Waderick Wells, headquarters of the Exuma National Land and Sea Park is a must.

Exploring ashore should include a visit to the outdoor market in George Town on Great Exuma. Or, perhaps set up a beach barbecue lunch on the beach at Stocking Island, with the crew preparing and serving lunch, you have all the watersports equipment in the aquamarine water. There is so much more: Thunderball Cave on Staniel Cay – the setting for the James Bond movie; Elentherea, famous for amongst other things, its pineapple rum; the excellent reef diving at Snow Bay on San Salvador; Andros, bonefishing capital of the world; and Bimini, a favoured spot for many famous artists and writers.
