July 14 – 21, 2018.
Join us this summer in the beautiful Abaco Islands – part of the Bahama Out Islands! From July 14 to the 21st, we will be sailing on a spacious Lagoon 45 ft sailing catamaran in the Sea of Abaco – a protected body of water with colors that can not be described! The islands have pristine beaches, some with small towns and other uninhabited.
Where we will be cruising:
The boomerang-shaped Abacos span from Walkers Cay in the north to Hole-in-the-Wall in the south, just 175 miles east of Florida’s Palm Beach and 106 miles north of Nassau. Explore Elbow Cay’s candy-colored architecture, snorkel Great Guana Cay’s seven-mile beach and enjoy a cocktail at Nippers Bar. Relax at Treasure Cay, often voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, or take in the relaxed atmosphere at Man-O-War Cay. Take a dip at Gillam Bay and Coco Bay at Green Turtle Cay or swim with wild pigs on No Name Cay!
A sample Itinerary:
Day 1: Board at 5.30pm and overnight at the dock.
Day 2: In the morning after breakfast, we will sail away and cruise toward Great Guana Cay and drop anchor off a lovely cay in Fishers Bay. Great Guana is the home of the world famous Nippers Bar with its equally famous Sunday hog roast. Set against a backdrop of a beautiful white beach, Great Guana Cay is perfect for taking long beach walks, beach combing, snorkeling, diving or sunbathing – there is something for everyone.
Day 3: In the morning, set sail to Green Turtle Cay with a lunch stop at No Name Cay to swim with the wild pigs! On Green Turtle – Visit the island by foot or bicycle and visit the local museum or the Memorial Sculpture Garden, which features bronze busts from Bahamian history. We will dine at one of the excellent restaurants and enjoy some snorkeling.
Day 4: Just after breakfast, we will set sail for Treasure Cay, which is listed in National Geographic’s “Top 10 Beaches in the World”. The sand is incredible and you’ll find excellent bars and restaurants, as well as tennis, golf, swimming and a few shops.
Day 5: In the morning, we head for Man-O-War Cay, a sleepy, prosperous settlement. The Albury family, famous for their Bahamian work boats, continue to build both small and larger vessels in the town. Snorkeling can be found on the ocean side of the island.
Day 6: Head down for Tahiti Beach and and wade through azure waters straight onto the beach. After a swim, sail up to Hope Town for a wide selection of shops, restaurants, historic museums and homes.
Day 7: After a delicious breakfast, we can visit the famous lighthouse and count the steps to the top! Then head back towards Marsh Harbour stopping at Matt Lowes Cay. You enjoy a last swim and snorkel in the Sea of Abaco before heading back to our marina for dinner and celebrating a fantastic week by listening to local bands nearby.
