We had great time. Gave them a 20% tip. As a matter of fact if they are still available in the Caribbean this Christmas we will probably charter her again.”

It’s Not Only Better in the Bahamas… It’s Better on a Mega Yacht Charter in the Bahamas

badgirl18

A pristine yacht charter destination. The Exuma Cays, known as the out islands of The Bahamas, are a 100-mile long necklace of small off-the-beaten track islands, lying about 50 miles south and east of Nassau. In fact, there is an island for every day of the year – 365 of them. The crystalline waters are among the most beautiful in the world, shimmering a rainbow of aqua, teal, emerald, indigo and sapphire. The local people are warm and welcoming.

When we first cruised here, we had spent years and years in the Caribbean so we expected more of the same. How wrong we were! Although you can access the Exumas by a 40 minute flight from the U.S., they feel miles away. You can be the first one to make footprints in the sand every day. Often, your yacht is the only one in the anchorage. The coral reefs are teeming with a kaleidoscope of fish. The sport fishing is world class, and the beaches are pristine and inviting. They are a snorkeler’s and diver’s paradise.

Numerous celebrities have vacation hideaways here – Johnny Depp, country singers Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and David Copperfield whose Musha Cay is nothing short of magical… and available for rent. This is a great destination for a celebrity or high profile person who doesn’t want to be seen or heard. And our discreet captains and crews are privileged to sign confidentiality agreements.
