Sailing in the Bahamas

Sailing in Abaco the BahamasNowhere in the world offers anything quite like the sailing in the Bahamas. If sailing is what you love to do, heaven is the pale blue waters of the Out Islands. The Abacos have been called by many the "Sailing Capital of the World," and the Bahamas are also considered to be one of the top places for inexperienced sailors. Close enough to the U.S. mainland, you can set sail in the morning and be in the Biminis by afternoon. In the Bahamas, there are plenty of ports, tiny coastal villages, and easy-to-find secluded sites. You can sail to the Bahamas on multi-million dollar yacht, or you can do on a lowly Hobie Cat: I've seen it done. In fact, there are any number of ways you can get out on the water, from chartering a boat for a day (or more) to hiring the services of a party boat. Most often chartered by the week in Nassau or Freeport, yachts can be chartered as bareboat, skippered bareboat, or crewed charter. The options are endless.

Getting There:

For visitors arriving by air, the Bahamas are served through Nassau by most US airlines and by international airlines from Canada and Europe, and to a slightly more limited degree through Freeport.

The Out Islands are served mainly by Bahamas Air via connections in Nassau and Freeport.

The Bahamas is also a major destination for the cruise ship industry
