whale trail

Set off towards Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, stopping off first at Norman's Cay for an unmissable wreck dive. At the park, explore the trails around this nature sanctuary and see the skeleton of a 53ft whale. Follow in tradition by writing your charter yacht’s name on a piece of driftwood and leaving it atop Boo Boo Hill, as an offering to the gods.

A charter in the Bahamas is the perfect mix of total relaxation, relaxed island hospitality and discovering wildlife from sea pigs and iguanas to tropical fish and turtles.

disembark

Return to the Marina at Atlantis Paradise Island, where you can shop for souvenirs, take the kids for a few more rides down the waterslides or place one last wager at the gaming tables. Otherwise, relax onboard your charter yacht with a Caribbean-themed buffet breakfast before heading to the airport for your flight home.

Quite possibly the most beautiful waters in the world, with great drifts of clear turquoise waters, powdery pink-tinged sand and hundreds of coral islands.
