8 Days / 7 Nights Exumas Bahamas Yacht Charter Itinerary
Sail the Great Exumas and Cays on one of our private yacht charters. Here is a Sample Itinerary for your Exumas Bahamas Yacht Charter adventure.
Day 1 – Warderick Wells
Join your yacht in the spectacular Atlantis Marina on Nassau’s Paradise Island after a short flight from home. Stop at the famous Straw Market to pick up a wide-brimmed hat and woven tote for shelling. Later, you’ll anchor off Warderick Wells to explore the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, a marine preserve with brilliant coral reefs. What a way to start your trip!
Day 2 – Staniel Cay
En route to Staniel Cay you may want to stop at Big Major’s Spot, a protected anchorage perfect for watersports, and don’t forget to feed the wild swimming pigs. Then it’s off to Thunderball Grotto, where James Bond escaped the bad guys in the movie. Now it’s filled with much friendlier tropical fish. This is a great place to snorkel!
Day 3 – Compass Cay
At the dingy dock on Compass Cay Marina, you’ll find friendly nurse sharks that wiggle onto the dock for you to pet them. Visit Rachel’s Bubble Bath, a natural pool full of bubbles from the ocean waves that spill over its edge.
Day 4 – Shroud Cay
This uninhabited cay is part of the Land & Sea Park, and it’s a nursery for sea turtles, conch, and zillions of fish. Explore the tidal creek by tender to view the wildlife, and then enjoy an icy piña colada on the soft sand beach. At night, savor the spa pool under the stars.
Day 5 – Highbourne Cay
On the way to Highbourne Cay, a must-stop is Allan’s Cay. Go ashore to feed fruit to the tame iguanas–dragon-like throwbacks to prehistoric times. Swing past Norman’s Cay, once a hideaway for drug smugglers whose wrecked plane lies on the reef. Once at Highbourne Cay, formerly a watermelon plantation, there are fascinating ruins to explore.
Day 6 – Harbour Island
You’ll want to pick up a pilot to navigate the tricky Devil’s Backbone and then enjoy the marina at “Bri’land.” Rent a golf cart and explore the narrow streets lined with pastel-colored houses. Have a drink at the Pink Sands Resort and then wiggle your toes in the aptly-named sands.
Day 7 – Nassau
Back at Nassau, you’ll want to leave time to explore the Atlantis Marine Habitat and stroll through its clear tunnel surrounded by sharks. Or, Tee off at the Ocean Club Golf Course and enjoy invigorating play on a championship course with spectacular views of the beautiful Bahamian coastline.
Whether it is deep-sea diving, snorkeling, or on-land sight seeing that interest you most, we will build an Exumas Bahamas yacht charter itinerary that best suits your interests and desires. This is just a sample of what your yacht charter adventure in the Bahamas may look like. Furthermore, weather – or other outside factors – may require your Captain to set an alternative course for the duration of your trip. “As the wind blows, so shall the sail”.
