The Island of Andros, Bahamas

The Island of Andros

Adventure and beauty are calling your name on the island of Andros—an island located in the Bahamas. This nearly untouched island is the largest of the Bahamas, at roughly 100 miles long. It is easily accessed by private yacht charter. The island is stunning, as most of it is uninhabited. There are many stretches of unspoiled land on the island, including free-flowing creeks, deserted beaches, and exotic wildlife. A trip to Andros Island offers a rare opportunity to become connected to nature in a way that you probably haven’t done before. 

Snorkeling in the Bahamas

There is no shortage of mystery and wonder that surrounds Andros as well. There is believed to be an underwater 75-foot monster, Lusca, who dwells in the ocean waters. There’s Morgan’s Bluff—the presumed location of a hidden buried treasure from one of the Caribbean’s most feared pirates, Sir Henry Morgan. Perhaps one of the most beautiful wonders of the island though available for snorkeling from your private charter yacht, is the Andros Barrier Reef—the third largest living organism on the planet. Because this island is almost completely uninhabited, this 190-mile reef is in pristine condition with an abundance of fish, whales, and coral for you to explore.

The Elusive Bonefish

For the fisherman looking for great sport, bonefishing is at its finest in the saltwater flats around Andros Island, considered a world class bonefishing destination. From your anchored charter yacht, head out with a local bonefishing guide who will supply a flat bottomed boat, and all of the gear needed to stalk this elusive fish.

Luxury private crewed yacht charter - Florida and the Bahama islands

Beautiful Bahamas

Written by Missy Johnston

As you know, in September 2019, Hurricane Dorian caused significant damage to the Bahamas. The Abacos Islands, along with other popular Bahamas Out Island destinations north of Nassau, sustained a direct hit from the Category 5 storm. However, other Bahama islands remained untouched and still open for business, including the Exumas. The Bahamas Out Islands stretch over a very large area, so that while one island chain can sustain damage, other island areas are untouched. These islands are very dependent on tourism revenue, and the Exumas are still as beautiful as ever. If you are considering a private yacht charter in this region, this is a perfect time to go on a yacht charter in the Exuma Islands.

Yacht Charter in the Bahamas can be arranged for any one of many island chains in this country with far flung islands sprinkled across the Atlantic, however a favorite, and with good reason, are the Exuma Islands. Once known as Yumey and Suma, the Exumas were first settled by British Loyalists that flocked to these beautiful cays after the American Revolutionary War.  Today, beginning just 35 miles south of Nassau and stretching 130 miles, The Exumas are more a playground that can be enjoyed by land, however are  far more spectacular when enjoyed by sea on a yacht charter in the Bahamas.

Harbour Island, Bahamas

Charter a yacht choosing from one of the many private yachts for charter in the Bahamas, and enjoy a luxury yacht charter out of Harbour Island. The yacht charter cruise area around Harbour Island, including Spanish Wells, is the heart of the Colonial Bahamas era, as this was the first area that Europeans settled in the Bahamas by sailing from Bermuda in search of religious freedom. In fact the largest island anchoring the area is Eleuthera, which is the Greek word for freedom. This is a luxury yacht cruising area where not only will you enjoy the beautiful crystal clear waters for snorkeling and scuba diving, and the unique pink sand beaches for which this area is famous, but you can also explore villages and see excellent examples of Bahamian Colonial architecture. Most of the crewed yachts for rent in the Bahamas are motor yachts due to the shallow waters, and there is a very nice selection available for your yacht charter.
