The Bahamas are a popular yacht charter destination, and within the Bahamas, the Exumas are a real gem. They’re the group of islands just south of Nassau, where flights typically land from Florida and other airports. Yacht crews can collect guests at the airport on Nassau for the quick drive to one of several marinas where an Exumas yacht charter itinerary can begin.
One of those marinas is the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort, for charter clients interested in a few days on land either before or after their yacht charter itinerary. Atlantis has shopping, restaurants, water slides and a world-famous casino, all making for a nice addition to a charter in the islands.
The Exumas themselves are a string of small islands full of conch shacks, rum bars and white sandy beaches. The region is shallow, which makes it impossible for large cruise ships to enter. Charter yachts dominate the landscape, and they are available at all sizes and price points, from family-friendly catamarans to true superyachts.
Some highlights of an Exumas yacht charter can include swimming with the wild pigs at Big Major Cay, snorkeling in the Thunderball Cave that became in the James Bond film and relaxing on a beach at a place like Staniel Cay with no other human beings in sight.
