Short overview of the islands

A Bahamas charter yacht vacation is an unforgettable adventure among a scattering of magnificent nature and leisure for every taste. Going on a yacht voyage in the Bahama region, tourists will experience this place differently. The most attractive experiences that tourists can encounter are:

The archipelago has over 700 islands and about two thousand coral reefs in the Atlantic. People inhabit around thirty islands. The Bahamas charter yachts services are attractive for yachters as they provide a wide selection of options, a warm climate, cozy marinas, and a selection of yachts for rent. 

The Bahamas is a well-developed region for boat trips. An airport accepting international flights is located on New Providence Island, in the city of Nassau. 

General knowledge about the Bahamas: 

  • It is an island nation in the warm Atlantic region, not far from the coastline of North America. 

  • The climate varies from subtropical to tropical. 

  • The best season for yacht tourism is from December to May. 

  • From May to November, strong winds, precipitation, and storms can occur. 

  • English is the most widespread language on the isles. 

The Bahama Isles are of coral origin. They are predominantly low and flat, the elevation over the sea level is 15–20 meters. Shallow reefs surround the islands. Most of the reefs have dense bushes and mangroves on the shores. Shallow, warm waters and coral reefs make yachting in these waters challenging from a navigation point of view. Still, the rapid evolution of satellite navigation and electronic maps has made Bahama motor yacht charter accessible to many tourists.
