Yacht Charter in the Bahamas and the Beautiful Exuma Islands

Written by Missy Johnston

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.

Bahamas Charter Itinerary: Out Islands


Written by Missy Johnston


Harbor Island

Cruise on this yacht charter itinerary through the Bahamas Out Islands on a motor yacht or sailing catamaran through Bahamas Out Islands that were settled during the Colonial Bahamian Period.  While perhaps more historic ashore, these Bahamas Out Islands have the same beautiful long expanses of beach along with terrific snorkeling and scuba diving locations, that are a signature of all of the Bahamas Out Islands.

Board your yacht in Harbour Island.  Enjoy the streets of Dunmore Town that the glossy magazines are labeling as the “new St Barths”. Renowned for brightly colored houses and white picket fences, this elegant little town has art galleries, restaurants, boutiques and straw work to offer. Golf carts are the means of transportation around Harbour Island and will allow you to explore the many narrow streets. Diving enthusiasts will enjoy the sight of an unusual underwater train wreck.  Harbour Island is renowned for the pink sand beaches; find an isolated anchorage around the island for a relaxing swim. Overnight.

Itinerary; Bahamas Yacht Charters out of Harbour Island


Written by Missy Johnston

Bahamas Harbour Island

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.

Harbor Island, Bahamas

To see true pink sand on your crewed yacht charter in the Bahamas, be sure to include Harbour Island, rated one of the Best Beaches in the Bahamas by many travel advisors. There are over 3.5 miles of beautiful pink sand beaches, which you may have, in certain locations, all to yourself. The pink sand beaches are found along the east side of the island and are colored by coral bits and small shells from the coral reef right offshore. Harbour Island was one of the first stops in the colonization of the Bahamas by the Europeans, and has always been prized as a vacation location. In the late 1700’s, Harbour Island was the location of summer residence of John Murray, 4th Earl of Dunmore, Governor of the Bahamas from 1786 to 1798. Harbour Island has always rated as a terrific location in the Bahamas to stop while on a crewed yacht charter in the Bahamian Out Islands

Iguana at Allan’s Cay

In the Exuma Island chain on a small deserted cay called Allan’s Cay is a colony of the rare black iguanas, called the Bahamian Rock Iguana, or the Bahamian Dragon. The adults of this iguana subspecies are a dull gray black and can be found on around 7 cays in the Exuma Islands. Allan’s Cay is a easy cruise from Staniel Cay a good location to stop for night on your yacht charter itinerary for the Exuma Islands in the Bahamas, and is actually a group of 3 small islets with an anchorage in the middle. Seeing this rare iguana at Allan’s Cay is a great and easy stop during your yacht charter. There are a large number of iguanas on this cay, and they look forward to visits. Anchoring nearby and taking the yacht tender to the beach usually brings iguanas down to the beach area to investigate. They are surprisingly friendly, however this may be from knowledge over the years that visiting yachtsmen usually bring food, so be sure to bring a snack or two to give to these rare creatures.

Written by Missy Johnston

Luxury yacht, Luxury yacht charter, Bahamas Stalking the Bonefish


Bonefishing is a sport unlike any other, even unlike any other type of fishing. And there are only a few perfect bonefishing areas, one of which is Andros Island in the Bahamas. To try your hand at bonefishing, it is easy to visit Andros Island on a yacht charter in the Bahamas. As the largest island in the Bahamas, Andros Island is also the least populated, unless you count bonefish and there are thousands of these tough fighting fish. And, Andros Island bonefish are reputed to be some of the largest bonefish in the world, so it is even possible to catch a trophy sized bonefish on a fishing expedition during your charter. Include Andros Island in your Bahamas yacht charter itinerary and stalk the wild bonefish on your next charter.
