Explore the best the Maldives has to offer as you sail around this pristine paradise

10 Nights: Various dates January - December

The natural beauty of the Abacos, Bahamas awaits you on our 8-day/7-night cabin yacht charter. Aboard a spacious catamaran, you’ll have a double cabin with a private bathroom. Your sailing adventure begins at Marsh Harbour, after which you sail over waters so calm and clear that you’ll see the sandy bottom below. Experience the best of these islands with stops at Nipper’s Bar to enjoy the world-famous hog roast, Hope Town to stroll the cobblestone streets and of course to visit Sandy Cay National Park for amazing shallow-water snorkelling.

Superior cabin upgrades available.

Day 1 – Saturday: Marsh Harbour

Boarding at 06:00 pm. Dinner and overnight onboard in Conch Inn & Marina.

Day 2 – Sunday: Marsh Harbour – Great Guana Cay

We will cruise toward Great Guana Cay where we will drop anchor off at a lovely cay in Fishers Bay. Great Guana is the home of the world-famous Nippers Bar, with its equally famous Sunday hog roast, as well as Grabbers Bar and Grill. Set against a backdrop of a beautiful Atlantic long white beach, Great Guana Cay is perfect for taking long walks.

This is also the ideal place to snap some of those iconic white sand beach shots that grace the pages of travel magazines. The island has something for everyone, from beach combing, snorkelling, and diving (with extra charge) to simple walks along the beach.

Day 3 – Monday: Great Guana Cay – Man-O-War

After lunch, we will set off to the sleepy, but prosperous and beautifully maintained Man-O-War Cay. Visit the sail shop to purchase souvenirs, then see the famous Albury family’s Bahamian work boats and boat building facility. Snorkelling sites can be found on the north ocean side of the island, just a short 15-minute walk away.

Day 4 – Tuesday: Man-O-War Cay – Hope Town

Cruise to Elbow Cay where you’ll be greeted by the iconic white-striped lighthouse – one of only three kerosene-lighted, manned lighthouses remaining in the world. Stroll the cobblestone streets where you can find restaurants, markets, boutiques and the local dive shop. Visit the local attractions like a small museum and one of the many restaurants surrounding the harbour. You can also rent a golf cart to explore the island.

Day 5 – Wednesday: Hope Town to Little Harbour – on the way stop at Sandy Cay National Park – Little Harbour South of Abaco

Because we use shallow draft catamarans you are able to step off the boat and wade through crystal blue waters where you can have lunch and enjoy snorkelling at Sandy Cay National Park. After lunch, we sail up to Little Harbour, which is one of the most picturesque harbours in the Bahamas. Go ashore at Little Harbour to enjoy a visit to the famous beach bar, Pete’s Pub & Gallery, and art gallery.

Day 6 – Thursday: South of Abaco – Tahiti Beach

Get up early so we can sail down to Tahiti Beach South of Abaco to find our own secluded island. Spend the day lying on the beach or snorkelling the reefs with their abundance of enchanting sea life. There is nothing like having an island all to yourself. Spend your early evening drinking cocktails whilst watching the sunset.

Day 7 – Friday: Tahiti Beach – Matt Lowe’s Cay – Marsh Harbour

After a delicious breakfast, we head back toward Marsh Harbour, stopping at Matt Lowe’s Cay. Swim in the Sea of Abaco before heading back to the marina for dinner and a celebration with the locals whilst listening to local bands nearby.

Day 8 – Saturday: Disembarkation at 10:00 a.m

After breakfast, we swap emails and photos and we send you home with great memories and anticipation for your next sailing vacation.
