Sailing the Bahamas
Just off the Florida coast, there is a turquoise piece of heaven waiting for you. The famous Bahamas are an archipelago consisting of over 700 islands resting in the Atlantic Ocean. Even Christopher Columbus could not resist their beauty, as he is considered “the first tourist” of the Bahamas, after his visit to San Salvador Island in 1492.
The perfect starting point with two airports nearby are the Abaco Islands, which are a magnet for sailors due to their gentle trade winds, pleasant anchoring and unreal-looking beaches. A wide variety of sailing boats is at your disposal at Marsh Harbour there, with several full-service marinas.
Sail with SailingEurope to these stunning subtropical islands, either on a sailing yacht or a catamaran, crewed or bareboat, and treat yourself to a dream vacation in the bluest water on the planet!
Choose a Boat
The Bahamas offer countless activities, depending on whether you are in the mood for historic sightseeing, trying out exciting new water sports or enjoying the local cuisine. The most fun is definitely swimming with feral pigs on the appropriately nicknamed Pig Island near the Exuma Cays. Or, you can explore the amazing underwater cave system of the Lucayan National Park on Grand Bahama Island, whose surface extends to almost 10 kilometers. Whatever you decide to do, get ready for an unforgettable sailing holiday!
