Bahamas sailing tours https://12knots.com/storage/app/media/seo_yachtcharter/bahamas-cabin-charters-1.jpg

The Bahamas archipelago consists of about 700 islands and 2,000  coral reefs, with total area of more than 250 thousand square miles  where only 30 islands are inhabited. Most of the population is  concentrated on the island of New Providence with it’s capital Nassau  and Grand Bahama Island with the second largest city – Freeport. The  largest island of the archipelago is Andros.

Bahamas stateroom charter

Taking one of our sailing tours in The Bahamas, you will not be  disappointed. The climate in the Bahamas varies from north to south,  from tropical to subtropical. Most of the rainfall occurs at the end of  spring or early summer (May-June) and autumn (September-October). The  average temperature in the summer varies from + 26 ± 32 ° C, and in the  winter is around + 18-22 ° C.

Winter is the dry season with rare  rains mostly in the form of short and strong precipitations. October –  November is the period of tropical storms and hurricanes, accompanied by  strong winds.

The average temperature in coastal waters is +27 °C in  summer and about +23 ° C in winter.  The best time to charter a cabin  on one of our Bahamas sailing tours is from December to June, when the  heat is softened by the trade winds but the sea is still warm.

Bahamas/ Places of Interest

New Providence and Paradise Islands. Nassau, the nation's  capital, is the cultural, social, political and economic center of the  Bahamas. It comprises two separate islands. Nassau sits on the shore of  21-mile Long Island of New Providence, while tiny Paradise Island,  connected to its larger neighbor by bridges, actually shields Nassau  harbor for 3-mile (5 km) stretch.

Paradise Island represents some of the Bahamas's priciest vacation  homes and upscale resorts, with entertainment complex to satisfy every  whim and fancy. Still you can find several quite getaway spots. The  north shore is lined with white-sand beaches, and the protected south  shore, lining Nassau Harbor, is a haven for yachts. Nassau is packed  with amazing mansions, churches, gardens, forts and monuments, many with  a distinct British touch left from the old colonial days.

It also offers sophisticated shopping and dining, flashy casinos and hot nightlife.

Grand Bahama Island

Grand Bahama Island (known as GBI) is the second most popular  yacht charter destination. Although it can't match Nassau's colonial  charm or Paradise Island's upmarket chic, it offers a growing list of  soft-adventure and ecotours, including kayaking, bird-watching and  exploring old fishing settlements.

Inagua https://12knots.com/storage/app/media/seo_yachtcharter/bahamas-cabin-charters-2.jpg

Great Inagua, the Bahamas's third largest island, is 25 mi wide  and 45 mi long. An unusual climate of little rainfall and continual  trade winds has created rich salt ponds, which have brought prosperity  to the island over the years. The Morton Salt Company harvests a million  tons of salt annually here. Rent a boat and sail to Inagua, that is  best known for the huge flocks of pink flamingos and largest populations  of the rare Bahamian parrot, as well as other species of birds.

The Abacos

If you are sailing or yachting, the Abacos is the place to  be.  Slim string of small cays, the Abacos island was once the nation's  boat-building capital. Today shallow translucent waters and top-notch  marinas make it a hot spot for pleasure boating and fishing. Idle  sailing between cays is a popular pastime. It is perfect for vacationers  who seek isolated beaches by day and unmatched stargazing by night.

Eleuthera and the Exumas

Chic but still friendly, popular but still intimate, this area  with its famous pink sandy beaches, has grown into something of a  celebrity magnet. Hundreds of little cays that make up the Exumas are  prime ground for yachting.

Beaches

The Bahamas has more than 800 mi of beachfront, more than any  other Atlantic or Caribbean nation. Theoretically, it's all yours to  explore, since all Bahamian beaches are public up to the high-water  mark. In practice, private homes and resorts can make it difficult to  reach some stretches of sand, unless you arrive by a boat.

Activities

For all of its dining, golfing, gambling, botanical gardens,  shopping and nightlife possibilities the Bahamas Islands, with flawless  weather nearly year-round, remain the natural delight for water  sports. Though many may think of sailing and fishing first, snorkeling  and scuba diving are just as good as well - exploring a vast system of  coral reefs, sea gardens, blue holes and drop-offs. And do not forget  about water-skiing, parasailing, windsurfing, kayaking, wave running and  more.
