Explore the Bahamas this winter

26th September 2019
Picture a quintessential yacht escape, and the Bahamas will tick all of the boxes. It is not for nothing that the Bahamas have long proved one of the most popular yachting destinations. Visiting the Bahamas this winter is the perfect way to ensure a special charter experience, while also providing all-important support for the Bahamian community following the impact of September 2019’s Hurricane Dorian.

Although parts of the Northwestern Bahamas, particularly the Abacos Islands and Great Bahama, were badly hit, over 90% of the Bahamas remain pristine and open for business. The Bahamas relies heavily on tourism for economic stability and making sure that yacht charter tourism continues is crucial.

Let IYC tempt you into a Bahamas yacht charter this winter, by showcasing some of the top reasons why this destination is so exceptional. Spread across 700 miles, and home to more than a quarter of the world’s natural reefs, the Bahamas are an incredible yachting destination.

The People and Culture

Expect to receive a warm welcome wherever you go in the Bahamas. The Bahamian people will greet you with a smile, and entice you to visit all the best spots and sample the best and most vibrant local flavours. From bustling ports, like Nassau, to tiny islands with only a few inhabitants, there is plenty to see and do, and there are often festivals and music events around the islands.


Stunning Scenery

The Bahamas offers picture-perfect surroundings that look like they are straight off a postcard. Over 700 islands and nearly 3000 coral cays mean there is endless variety, and often your yacht will be the only one in sight. Take a stroll on a deserted white sand beach, and pick a shell for a special souvenir, or simply soak in the views of endless blue skies and tropical beauty.

Warm weather all year round make this the perfect destination for soaking up some sunshine – make sure you pick a yacht with plenty of outdoor space to make the most of your surroundings. Enjoy al fresco meals, relaxing in the warm air and with views to die for.


World Class Dive Spots

The Bahamas are a diver’s delight with countless dive spots to choose from, to suit divers of all levels. The sheltered waters are teeming with life, with hundreds of species to see. Dive down to sunken wrecks, explore caves flickering with light, and marvel at the rainbow of colours from shoals of fish. If you have never dived before, this is the ideal place to learn and many of the IYC fleet have qualified dive instructors on board.


Total Relaxation

A laid back vibe paired with the beautiful surroundings make the Bahamas a top choice for those looking to totally relax. Indulge in some morning yoga as the sun rises, luxuriate on sun loungers, or for the full relaxation experience make sure to choose a yacht with its own dedicated wellness hub. Relax with family, or enjoy a romantic retreat.
