Scattered over a 100,000 square miles of iridescent blue shoal waters, more than 700 low-lying Bahamian islands and cays lie just 50 miles south of the US coast of Florida. Most of the cays are deserted and surrounded by breath-taking dive sites as beautiful marine life fills the warm, shallow waters, perfect for anyone looking for glorious sunshine, picture-postcard settings and sporting adventure.
The Bahamas have a fantastic reputation as a winter cruising destination, providing style, charm and shores that not only gleam with white sands but are brimming with fascinating history and Bohemian living. New Providence Island and Paradise Island are bustling neighbours with vibrant nightlife and an abundance of boutiques, casinos and restaurants. For a few days of beach rest and relaxation head further south to the natural paradise of Compass Cay with 450 acres and 15 beaches, the most spectacular being the long Crescent Ocean Beach.
The Abacos are a chain of islands located 185 miles north of the Exumas and therefore ideal for a charter that incorporates both island groups. The islands of the small boomerang-shaped archipelago, are a world apart from the vibrant capital of Nassau, offering a pace of life that almost drops to a standstill and bicycles and dinghies far outnumber cars.
