The yachting season in the Bahamas runs from September to May. It is popular because of its natural beauty and care-free attitude to life. Everything seems to move a little bit slower than elsewhere, which is what makes it so attractive. Hence, many people consider a Bahamas yacht charter for their next vacation. If you are thinking of this as well, make sure you plan your trip properly. Below are some of the marinas you could consider to go to.
The Abaco’s – The Bluff House
This marina was renovated in 2004 to a multimillion dollar price tag. It has 40 slips and is known as the best full-service harbor in The Abaco’s. There is a Texaco on site and the entrance has been fully dredged for easy access. The docks, meanwhile, have been fitted with Ipe, a type of Brazilian teak. It comes with bathing quarters and a laundry facility. Furthermore, it is one of the best spots for bonefishing.
Grand Bahama Island – Grand Bahama Yacht Club
The Grand Bahama Yacht Club has a reputation for elegance and exclusivity. It is one of the world’s most luxurious destinations, with 150 slips. It has all concrete docks, where superyachts of up to 175 feet can moor. It comes with fuel services and high speed pumps, and the marina is linked to the Pelican Bay Hotel for those who would prefer to spend a night on dry land. It also has complimentary shuttles to other hotels, clean shower rooms, and modern laundry facilities.
Paradise Island – Hurricane Hole Marina
The name “Hurricane Hole” is perhaps not so attractive, but this marina is the place to go for superyachts. It is in Paradise Island’s most beautiful location, enabling people to easily walk to the Atlantis resort, the many nightclubs, casinos, championship golf courses, shopping, and restaurants. It has 90 spaces and can take on superyachts of up to 200 feet. It also hosts events such as the Bahamas Billfish Championship Tournament, which people from all over the world flock to.
Furthermore, the marina is linked to the Holiday Inn next door, where room rates are negotiated at discounted rates. This is the newest property on Paradise Island that faces the water and the service is second to none. It comes with spa and fitness facilities, which are accessible to those in the marina. They also offer condos for rentals. Hurricane Hole Marina truly is one of the most beautiful in the Bahamas, with crew members, captains, an charterers all loving it.
The beauty of the Bahamas is that it is an archipelago. This means that there is no need for you to stay on just one island, particularly if you have a yacht at your disposal. By water, you will have the opportunity to go to any of the islands, choosing the ones that you like the most yourself. Each of the islands has something special to offer in terms of natural beauty, activities, and cultures. And each of the islands has at least one marina to dock at.
