Beaches, bays, blissed-out sailing
Scattered like jewels over the ocean just southeast of Florida, The Bahamas offer endless possibilities for sailors. With 700 islands and thousands of cays to explore in The Bahamas, you’d be hard pressed to find a place closer to paradise on Earth. Warm, gentle trade winds consistently caress the sheltered waters around The Bahamas, making it a perfect choice for families and novice sailors.
Just below the surface of the warm waters lies almost a quarter of the Earth’s coral, home to a spectacular array of tropical marine life swimming in the jewel-hued sea. Divers will find one of the most complete diving destinations in the world, with choices ranging from sunken Spanish galleons to massive blue holes, forest-like coral reefs to underwater caves. Head for famous dive sites including the Abacos Train Wreck, the USS Adirondack or the Tongue of the Ocean for an unforgettable diving experience.
From our base in Marsh Harbour, Great Abaco, you’ll find a Bahamian island to match every mood, each set against the backdrop of the mesmerising turquoise sea. Head to Green Turtle Cay for hidden coves and deserted beaches, or visit Elbow Cay, where the toughest decision you’ll make is where to snorkel first. Fish for big game species including marlin, tuna and shark from the deck of your yacht, or surf some of The Bahamas' best surf spots on Elbow and Great Guana cays.
