Getting to the Bahamas by Private Boat

The Islands of the Bahamas have, since the dawn of recorded history, held a special interest for sailors. Spanish explorers, pirates and privateers and blockade runners have plied these waters.

Today, private watercraft make up the bulk of traffic. Yachts and cruisers in all sizes range from little Hobie Cats to multi-million-dollar mega-yachts.

The close proximity to the Florida mainland makes the crossing possible for sailors of even limited experience. Boating facilities are plentiful, diverse, and spread throughout the islands. You’ll find marinas and anchorages listed throughout this website
