ABOUT YACHT CHARTER BAHAMAS
Did you know that the Bahamas form a 100,000-sq-mile archipelago that extends more than 500 miles of the clearest water in the world.
There are 700 islands, including uninhabited cays and large rocks, with an estimated land area of 5,382 sq. miles. The highest land elevation is on Cat island at just 206 ft.
All these islands are encircled by cays and some of these are further surrounded by uninhabited rocks, so can be hazardous when sailing.
Did you know that the Bahamas has the world's third longest barrier reef and around 14. 5% of all the world's coral can be found in these waters.
Each island within the Bahamas has its own bio diverse environment. Each island is worth exploring.
Each island has its own unique people and heritage and culture with a population around 305,000 islanders.
The Bahamas lies around 100 miles to the South East of Florida.
It is the perfect place for yacht charters and places such as the Exuma Sound in the relatively quiet South East is a favorite destination for cruisers.
If its socialisation you are after then there are many yacht clubs. Or just chill out and befriend those anchored closest, if they want your company that is. Personally I avoid the clubs and seek out like minded sailors. Often they will drop a valuable hint on some quiet cove or place to visit. It can get busy out there, and quiet places are my favorite ones.
When voyage planning remember June to November is hurricane season. One thing you dont want is to get caught out, and even in 2020, the year of COVID there have been some serious strength storms.
So for your next Bahamas Charter think of the islands that you will visit. Get out the map, read the cruising guides and make a plan. Of course dont be to ambitious, there is nothing worse than trying to sail to a schedule.
There is Exuma, Big Farmer's Cay, Ragged Island, Rum Cay, Crooked Island, Conception Island and Great Sayle Cay. Yacht Charter Bahamas
