609  Crewed Luxury Yachts for Charter in the Bahamas

Bahamas Yacht Charter

A Bahamas yacht charter promises guests a slice of tropical perfection and unparalleled escapism. The idyllic chain of islands that form the Bahamas provides yacht charter guests with a decadent cocktail of sun-drenched sands (even pink ones), crystalline waters teeming with marine life, and diverse topography.

Comprising more than 700 heavenly islands with precious few inhabited, the cruising grounds of the Bahamas archipelago offer a fascinating mixture of seclusion and connectedness. Expect a gloriously slower pace of life that harmonizes with the gentle tide, blended with a fiesta of blazing color and soft-calypso: an endearingly exotic charter experience.

Silhouetted by coral cays, aquamarine shallows are garlanded with glistening coves and iridescent bays are often only three or four meters deep, making the Bahamas both a perennial family favorite and a jet-setter's paradise. It's ideal territory for shallow draft yachts or catamarans, who can cozy up to seldom-visited anchorages and soak up their celestial calm, or delve deeper for an aquatic adventure.

Bahamas Yacht Charters: At a Glance

  • Constant sunshine Its sun-drenched shores amid cinematic landscapes charm yacht charter guests all-year-round. A blissful sanctuary awaits you when you reach these islands.
  • 700 islands, cays, and islets Make up the achingly beautiful jigsaw that is the Bahamas archipelago; expect beaches and bays that make your heart sing as par for the course. You'll be spoilt for choice with stunning anchorages.
  • 4% cruising fee Attractively low fees help to make the Bahamas an enduringly popular yacht charter destination.
  • Easily accessible Reaching the Bahamas is a mere hours flight from Florida or three hours from New York and Toronto. The Bahamas also has excellent transport links to other worldwide destinations.
  • Tropical thrills The Bahamas is a place of endless adventure and intrigue: from swimming with inquisitive pigs and gliding alongside friendly nurse sharks; to strolling otherworldly pink beaches and diving into coral-filled caves that once appeared in a James Bond film. The list really does go on and on.
  • Shallow waters The Bahamas' alluringly clear waters aren't deep, so shallow draught motor yachts, sailing yachts or catamarans provide guests with more opportunities to admire the Bahamas' natural splendor.

Where to Charter a Yacht in the Bahamas

Sensationally beautiful cays dapple every part of this glittering archipelago, so Bahamas yacht charter guests can take their pick of destinations to venture to. Every kind of possible itinerary can be catered to here; from simply recalibrating on silky sanded beaches lapped by gentle waves of unearthly blue: to shimmying the night away at twinkling bars until dawn; to whiling away sun-kissed afternoons golfing, snorkeling, fishing, and even horseback riding.

Types of Charter Yachts in the Bahamas

Crewed motor yacht charters and luxury catamaran charters are undoubtedly the best way to discover the Bahamas.

As one of the most popular destinations for yacht charters in the Caribbean , guests have countless fleet options when it comes to a Bahamas crewed charter. If you are unsure whether to opt for a motor yacht, sailing yacht or catamaran to cruise Bahamian waters, here are some main points to consider:

Shallow Cruising Grounds

The waters all around the Bahamas are fairly shallow, often no more than 4 meters deep, and even less in some places. Therefore, yachts with shallow drafts make the ideal choice for luxury charters around this enchanting region.

Most sailing charter yachts come equipped with a retractable keel, facilitating access to the beautiful turquoise shallows, although larger sailing yachts may still find their draft too deep for some areas, even with their keel up!

To get around this, some of the larger luxury yachts drop their anchor further out into the deeper waters and use their onboard tenders to explore the area, where guests can experience the thrill of getting up close and personal with the archipelago’s astonishing marine fauna, including rays, sharks and inquisitive swimming pigs. The yachts’ tenders also enable even greater access to the Bahamas' myriad exquisite island reefs and blue lagoons.

Motor yacht charter in the Bahamas

A luxury motor yacht provides guests with a tranquil haven to uncover the startling beauty of the Bahamas. Whether you want to peacefully bronze under Bahamian rays or get out the jet skis and whizz around deserted islands, a crewed motor yacht charter in the Bahamas provides you with boundless itinerary options. 

Sailing Yacht Charter in the Bahamas

Chartering a sailing yacht in the Bahamas means you can embrace all that these substantially beautiful islands have to offer. Cruising further afield to otherwise inaccessible sleepy villages with chalk-white beaches and waters suffused with a pale aqua glow is worth incorporating into any itinerary.

Catamaran Charter in the Bahamas

Given that the majority of catamarans have shallow drafts, crewed catamaran charters are a highly popular choice for Bahamas vacations. As you can cruise close to the cays, guests can savor the liberating feeling of being able to jump off-board at almost any point. Whether it's to dive amid sunken shipwrecks and admire shoals of fish that shimmy through fronds of coral in a kaleidoscope of color or to dance the night away at a private island under a blanket of stars; the choice is all yours.

How Much Does It Cost To Charter a Yacht in the Bahamas?

Bahamas yacht charters are plentiful, which means there are a vast array of motor yacht and catamaran charters to suit every type of budget. The average prices for motor and sailing yacht charters in the Bahamas are as follows;

For motor yacht rentals in Bahamas, prices can range from $42,100 to $1.47m per week, plus expenses

For luxury sailing yacht rentals in Bahamas, prices can go from $30,000 to $343,476 weekly, plus expenses

Tax for Yacht Charters in the Bahamas

What is the cost of tax for yacht charters in the Bahamas? From the 1st of July 2022, a new 10% VAT rate will be levied on the total charter fee, and is applicable to all yachts cruising in Bahamian waters. The new 10% levy does not replace the current 4% cruising fee which remains payable to the Port Department. 

All yachts wishing to cruise within the archipelago must now register for VAT in the Bahamas and receive a Bahamian TIN number. 

Please consult your chosen yacht charter broker who will be able to offer personalized advice on VAT and any other business for your next Bahamas yacht charter.

Foreign-Flagged Yachts in US Waters

There are strict and complicated rules governing commercial yacht charters (non-private) cruising US waters, which in general means that only US-flagged yachts or US built yachts with a coastwise endorsement can conduct yacht charters in the US. Furthermore, yachts that are available for charter are considered to be "engaging in a trade" and thus ineligible for a US cruising licence. Most luxury charter yachts are also not US duty paid.

As the majority of the charter fleet are foreign-flagged yachts, Bahamas yacht charters will likely begin outside of the US, usually in the Bahamian capital of Nassau where there is a large busy international airport.

That said, it is possible to pick-up charter guests in the US so long as the yacht's next port of call is outside of US waters. This can be a good option for those wishing to meet the boat in Florida and cruise down to the Bahamas from here.

Where Should I Begin My Yacht Charter in the Bahamas?

The vast majority of yacht charters in the Bahamas embark and disembark in the country's picturesque capital  Nassau , which is home to its best-known international ports, dotted with top-rung marinas all along its azure waters. The city is justly renowned for its throng of fine-dining options, boutiques, hip eateries, and casinos fringed by towering palm trees. Nassau is also conveniently located for cruising to the Exumas and beyond.

Atlantis Resort, Nassau

For a real respite from the crowds, it's common for yacht charter guests to embark their vessel at Marsh Harbor on the  Abaco Islands ,  where you can trace the mesmerizing string of sandy cays that can be found here. Its shores, a serene and shimmering topaz, are perfect for dropping anchor and taking the toys for a spin.

When is the Best Time to Visit the Bahamas by Yacht?

One of the great joys of choosing a Bahamas yacht charter is that its balmy climes and shallow waters make it more or less ideal to cruise all-year-round* .  But the Bahamas does have a peak season from mid-December to mid-April. The average temperatures of both Bahamian summers and winters are unsurprisingly tropical: hovering between 24-29 degrees and rarely dipping below this. 

Palm tree lined beach in the Bahamas

During the summertime (from May until October), guests can expect endless sunshine and some humidity, while from November until April, the Bahamas has a slightly cooler temperature and colder waters.

*However, whilst Bahamian weather is pleasingly warm all-year the islands do fall within the hurricane belt, running from June until the end of November along the US East Coast and the Caribbean. The Western Caribbean's own hurricane season usually starts from mid-September until early November.

Nevertheless, it is worth keeping in mind that hurricanes in the Bahamas are fairly infrequent, and even less so than on the US East Coast.

Marinas in the Bahamas

It is not hyperbole to say that the Bahamas offers some of the most spectacular marinas in the world: from glamorous hotspots replete with award-winning restaurants, designer stores, and buzzing beach bars, to the exquisite barefoot luxury that emanates from the less frequented.

Marina in the Bahamas

A slew of activities is on offer here, including bonefishing, ocean fishing, dolphin watching, golfing, and snorkeling. And that's not even to mention the dizzying array of casinos, water parks, and marine reserves you can also find. Simply put, marinas in the Bahamas are simply of the finest caliber.

But which marinas are the best? Below are some charter favorites:

  • Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina : the newly renovated marina at Paradise Landing close to the famous Atlantis Resort in Nassau offers a raft of 5-star amenities, wellness facilities and world-class retail outlets, not to mention exclusive restaurants and bars, alongside an on-site customs facility and slips catering to yachts up to 420ft (128m) LOA.
  • Treasure Cay Beach, Marina and Golf Resort (The Abacos): well-protected deep water marina, with excellent provisioning. Features an outstanding golf course, as well a spa for an extra dose of pampering. Excursions to see the delightful water-bound pigs can also be arranged here. It offers a 164-berth capacity up to 46m.
  • Green Turtle Club and Marina (The Abacos): tranquil and conveniently located to Abaco's hotspots as well as a perfect spot for beach hikes and land-based activities. Accommodates 40 berths up to 39m.
  • Atlantis Marina: iconic megayacht marina featuring a protected harbor with 63 berths up to 67m. Has an extensive number of facilities including a golf course, casino, spa, water park, and more. You can also arrange swimming with dolphins excursions here.
  • Emerald Bay Marina (The Exumas): large superyacht marina that has a berth capacity of 150 for yachts up to 79m. Within easy reach of many mesmerizing cays, including Cave Cay and Staniel Cay.
  • Palm Cay Marina (Nassau): ideal jumping point for exploring Paradise Island and the Exumas, with state-of-the-art facilities and amenities. 194 berth capacity up to 33m.
  • Highbourne Cay Marina: exclusive marina on a privately owned island, seen as the gateway to the Exumas. Accommodates up to 26 berths.

Popular Anchorages in the Bahamas

The Bahamas has jaw-dropping anchorages in abundance, flecked all along the 590-mile-long archipelago.

In the Exumas , you must cruise towards Leaf Cay to meet the colony of stocky but amiable Iguanas who call it home. You won't miss them: they'll be ready and waiting to greet you when you drop anchor. You should also pay a visit to  Staniel Cay, where the famed  Thunderball Grotto ( named after the 1965 James Bond film) is located, to see a cave illuminated by light and flourishes of angelfish. Closeby, you'll find Big Major Cay's  swimming pigs, who have a seemingly never-ending capacity for treats, and Shroud Cay's sea turtles contently floating amid a dramatic underwater backdrop. Simply put, it's a wildlife lover's paradise.

In the Abacos, head south to the isolated Great Guana Cay and  spend an afternoon snorkeling around the marine park, or alternatively, head straight to its golf course. Further north, you'll find Green Turtle Cay : where fishing boats stand charmingly in front of timber houses in a perfectly graduated shade of pastels. Swimming pigs (yes, there's even more here!) are located in nearby Noname Cay . And last but not least, bathe in the calm, warm shores of  Treasure Cay,  where you will find some of the best beaches in the world.

Elsewhere, other popular anchorages include those in  Eleuthera , an island steeped in cultural significance but manages to retain its erstwhile charm. Set towards  St. George's Cay to drink up the peaceful ambiance of Spanish Wells beach  and meander the historic  Governor's Harbor.

Best Airports in the Bahamas for Yacht Charters

airplane flying past palm trees Bahamas

Reaching your crewed yacht charter in the Bahamas is a breeze, with more than 20 international airports at your disposal, plus myriad smaller private and public airports. However, some are more conveniently located to popular yacht charter destinations than others. Here are the most popular airports for yacht charters in the Bahamas:

  • Nassau Lyndon-Pindling International Airport: best for charters starting in vibrant Nassau, as it is conveniently located to the docks of many world-class marinas and can be a quick tender ride from the airport. 
  • Georgetown, Great Exuma Airport : ideally located to reach the world-famous swimming pigs in the Exumas. Daily international flights are available.
  • North Eleuthera Airport: an international airport that is best for reaching the quaint Eleuthera and Harbor Island.
  • Marsh Harbor International Airport: ideal for charters commencing on the crystal clear shores of Abacos, being only 7.9km away.
  • Treasure Cay Airport : smaller than Marsh Harbor International Airport, this one is perfect for Northern Abacos yacht charters, taking a short water taxi ride to Green Turtle Cay to reach your destination.

Booking Advice from the Experts

We strongly recommend booking with your yacht charter broker at least three to six months in advance, as the Bahamas is a highly popular Caribbean luxury yacht charter destination. By doing so, you will increase the likelihood of securing your preferred dates and you will have a greater selection of yachts on offer to choose from.

This also ensures your broker has enough time to craft a personalized itinerary and secure a berth at a popular marina.

Local Insight

Diving in the Bahamas

  • Keep in mind that the endless sunshine from mid-December until April attracts a high number of visitors to this idyllic location, and this is when the Bahamas is usually at its busiest.
  • New Providence Island (where Nassau and the extraordinary Atlantis Resort and Marina are situated) tends to be heaving with cruise ships. If you are looking for a calmer charter, this is worth taking into consideration.
  • Weather conditions and wind strength play a crucial role in anchorage spots in the Bahamas, so plan any overnight anchorages accordingly.
  • Some anchorages can be a bit of a challenge to set: it's common for heavy grass to cover a large section of some of the better spots to drop anchor 
  • Anchorages that appear to have a sandy bottom can oftentimes be just a thin layer of sand over a coral reef or rock, making it difficult to dig the anchor in. Don't be misled by them!

Most Popular Superyacht Hotspots in the Bahamas

Treasure Cay Abaco Bahamas beach

In the north of the archipelago you'll find the Abacos : widely considered to be the boating capital of the Bahamas thanks to its unique geography. Epitomising laid-back Bahamian living, an Abacos yacht charter is ideal for those in search of stillness and solitude. Soak up its subtle alchemy at the vast 2,100 marine reserve in Pelican Cay,  fringed by blossoming coral, tame sea turtles, and dancing angelfish, or explore the superb surfing opportunities at Fowl Cays . For a journey through vivid color, pass a leisurely morning in nearby  Hope Tow n, admiring crayon-hued Bahamian architecture and  Elbow Cay's candy-striped lighthouse whilst drinking in their unpretentious ambiance.

After an afternoon spent floating on a late-summer heat haze, further on to Green Turtle Cay and sip on that famous Bahamian cocktail, the Goombay Smash, by a seafront taverna as the sun casts a peachy glow. Of course, no visit to the Abacos would be complete without a trip to the acclaimed  Treasure Cay Beach : its milky white sands and cyan shallows see it routinely end up on the world's most beautiful beaches list.

Home to 365 cays, days here could easily drift by diving off burnished rocks until the sun slowly slinks away. Life truly does revolve around the water in the Exumas, so think every watersport you could possibly imagine is a go here. Plus, it's the perfect shallow cruising ground for yacht charters, with no cruise ships in sight making it a discerning choice for those looking for repose.

Sailing towards Big Major's Cay is love at first sight for most: it's where you will find Pig Beach ,  and its utterly charming piggies gliding surprisingly effortlessly across the water. Nearby, plunge into the sea with nurse sharks at Compass Cay before ending the day sauntering along the remote  Three Sisters Beach as the sunsets. Whilst you are here, go onshore and absorb Bahamian culture to its fullest in  Georgetown.

An Eleuthera yacht charter has come to encapsulate the island's name, which in Greek means 'freedom'. Secluded, slender, and over 100 miles long, Eleuthera is unquestionably the prettiest out of the Out Islands, fully earning its name as the Nantucket of the Caribbean. With the island's soft, salmon-colored sandy beaches and pastel-painted houses set among pineapple fields, it's hard not to become infatuated by its perfectly-packaged tropical charms.

Make sure you also visit the historic capital  Governor's Harbor  and the verdant  Hatchet Bay whilst you are cruising its unspoiled shores.

Harbour Island

stunning pink sandy beach in bahamas

Situated in the northwest of Eleuthera, Harbor Island is renowned for its astonishing Pink Sand Beach , which gets its unique rosy hue from the presence of millions of tiny crushed coral seashells. Packing a powerful punch to the senses, this seemingly endless stretch of sand which is cool-to-the-touch (and ideal for barefoot walking) extends over three miles and adored by the well-heeled. And you'll understand in an instant why when you visit.  Languid afternoons spent upon its long arc of soft sugar-textured sand, hugged by pale-blue waters and bathed in golden light will linger long in your memory.

But that's not all Harbor Island has to offer. It would be remiss not to mention Harbor Island's lively night scene, and the number of sophisticated boutiques huddled here: with Dunmore Town the ultimate go-to destination for designer wear.

Don't Miss:

Andros Barrier Reef: delve into shipwrecks and be greeted with a vast array of marine life at the third longest reef in the world. If you fancy bonefishing, this is among the world's best locations.

Warderick Wells: tether here to discover some of the rarest life forms on earth, as well as lobsters, turtles, and parrotfish.

Wax Cay: grab your jet skis for a thrilling trip through the cay's myriad of mangroves.

Lucayan National Park: a stunning park that is also home to the world's longest underwater cave system.

Walker's Cay: if you love sport-fishing, then this spot should be your prime choice.

Junkanoo: be serenaded by island-inspired calypso and flamboyant dance troupes in this vibrant street parade held every Boxing Day.

Glass Window Bridge: drink in the majestic panoramas here, with views of the rich, sapphire-tinted waters of the Atlantic to the left, and the aqua Caribbean to the right.

John Watling’s Distillery: set in a former plantation house, sample a traditional rum cocktail at the Red Turtle Tavern, bordered by leafy black olive trees.

Clifton Heritage National Park: snorkel around the largest underwater sculpture in the world — an 18-foot statue of a Bahamian girl.

Bimini: less-frequented, this island is one of only a handful of places in the world where you can swim with wild dolphins, so make the most of it.

Bahamas Yacht Charter Q&A

Your vessel will need to have a shallow draft (no more than 4m) as Bahamas waters aren't deep. If you would like to visit the Bahamas by superyacht, it will need to have a shallow draft below 4m or a retractable keel to cruise comfortably and make the most of the idyllic anchorages found here.

Browse with ease on our site a wide-ranging selection of motor yachts, sailing yachts, and catamarans for charter in the Bahamas. Select by your chosen dates, number of guests, yacht type, features, and preferred onboard toys and we'll show you what's available.

If you decide to make an enquiry, a yacht charter broker will then contact you to provide you with a custom charter proposal based on your needs.

You can also reach out to your yacht charter broker directly, and they will be able to research for you the ideal yacht charter in the Bahamas.

Mid-December to mid-April is the Bahamas' peak season, characterized by endless sunshine and pleasingly warm waters.

Nassau is the invariably popular choice to begin a Bahamas yacht charter. Not only is the city astoundingly beautiful and replete with world-class marinas, hip boutiques, restaurants, and more, but reaching other Bahamas destinations like the Exumas is a breeze.

In most cases, a completed charter agreement and 50% of the charter fee is required as a deposit to secure your luxury yacht charter, which is payable once the contract has been signed.

The Bahamas is a highly popular yacht charter destination, which for guests means there is a yacht to suit practically every budget.

When booking, keep in mind the additional costs that aren't included in the base rate, namely tax and the APA (Advance Provisioning Allowance). Typically set at 30% of the charter fee, the APA is paid in advance and covers expenses such as fuel, berthing, food,  drinks, as well as any special requests (such as for tenders that are not carried by yacht, equipment hire, etc.)

The Bahamas Yacht Charter Reviews with 12knots

United States

“Great experience”

Great experience round trip Nassau to Georgetown on a Moorings 46 PCE power cat. Moorings base now very well run. Boat performed well with no significant issues. Returned Norman Cay to Nassau in 2 meter seas as a good test. 12 Knots provide excel…

“I've used 12 Knots twice”

I've used 12 Knots twice now and everything has gone smooth, their site is easy to navigate, and the prices have been tough to beat.

Patrick Oliver

Booking with 12 Knots was a great experience, they helped answer all our questions ahead of time. Would use them again to find a bareboat charter. Looking forward to many more travels using them.

“The sailing was great. The Exuma Islands were amazing.”

I apologize for the delay. We have been out of the country for almost a month. The sailing was great. The Exuma Islands were amazing. The staff at Navtours were helpful and professional. On the last day (on the crossing back)—the impeller went bad. W…

Chartering in the Bahamas, a Destination for Every Season

The Bahamas are a year-round yacht charter destination with weather patterns that closely mirror South Florida, making for an incredible climate for vacationing with a boat charter. Bahamas winters are cooler than the rest of the Caribbean, and temperatures can occasionally drop to the mid-to-low 60s, especially between December and February. Late spring and early summer have the best weather for boat rentals, with warm temperatures, calmer waters, sunny skies, and fair winds.

Bahamas Crewed Motor Yacht Charters

Chartering your own private motor yacht is the best way to see the islands of the Bahamas. Crewed motor yachts are the perfect way to island-hop, seeing as many attractions as possible and then relaxing offshore to enjoy water sports and beachside activities. Motor boats are the most popular type of yacht charter in the Bahamas. Crewed motor yachts also carry a wide range of recreational gear, from wakeboards and standup paddleboards to kayaks and Jet Skis, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Bahamas Crewed Catamaran Charters

Why choose a crewed catamaran for a luxury yacht rental? Bahamas daydreams conjure up images of lounging in the sun, and with a chartered catamaran, you can make the dream a reality on your own portable island! These wide-bodied vessels offer generous deck space and are more stable than motor yachts. What better way for both the sun-worshipper and the avid snorkeler to explore the reefs and sea life? With well-appointed living conditions, catamaran charters are perfect not only for the first-time sailor but for anyone wishing to relax with plenty of room to spread out.

Explore with a Boat Charter: The Bahamas

Manjack Cay Abacos

Want to learn more about the excitement you’ll find on your Bahamas yacht charter? These are the main cruising areas and yacht charter itineraries with our favorite stops, exhilarating adventures, and unforgettable experiences you won’t want to miss on your private crewed boat charter in the Bahamas.

Worldwide Boat and our experienced captains can help customize the perfect mix of must-see destinations and unique adventures with your boat rental. Nassau, Bahamas, and other exciting destinations will be yours to explore!

This stretch of stunning islands and cays is the perfect spot for Bahamas yacht charters. Idyllic beaches, hidden coves, and dozens of world-class ports make the Exumas some of the country’s top cruising grounds.

Here, you can swim with the pigs at Pig Beach on Big Major Cay or swim with nurse sharks at Compass Cay: They’ll be so close you can touch them!

The Exuma’s protected waters also offer a calm location to paddleboard, kayak, and Jet Ski around the islands. Don’t forget to visit Staniel Cay and nearby Thunderball Grotto! This fantastic underwater cave system is teeming with exotic marine life and is such an amazing location for snorkeling, diving, and wading that it was a location for two James Bond movies!

Nassau is the starting and ending port for most yacht charters in the Bahamas. Once dubbed “The Republic of Pirates,” Nassau today features world-class marinas, upscale hotels, resorts, and golf courses. In addition, it is also a great destination on its own, with beautiful beaches and great snorkeling

The Atlantis

The famed Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island is a world of its own, offering spas, world-class restaurants, nightclubs, and more! Snorkel alongside tropical fish in the man-made Ruins of Atlantis, stroll the bottom of the shark exhibit, feed stingrays in the lagoon, or just relax at one of 11 different swimming pools.

Don’t start your charter without spending a day at the Atlantis and enjoying all of the amenities this luxury resort offers, from swimming with dolphins to trying your luck at the best casino in the Caribbean.

With architecture inspired by British settlers, Eleuthera is a casual island of rocky bluffs and low-lying wetlands with magnificent coral reef backdrops. Eleuthera’s beaches are world-famous. Surfer’s Beach is just two miles south of Gregory Town, where southwest winds blow breaks in from the Atlantic. It’s a surfing and kite-surfing mecca! Even if you just want to watch, the two-mile stretch of beach has some of the best sugary-soft white sand in the Bahamas.

Harbour Island

Northwest of Eleuthera lies Harbour Island, which was named by Travel + Leisure magazine as “the best island in the Caribbean” not once but twice. Known for its romantic pink-sand beaches, upscale shore-side accommodations, and picturesque scenery, Harbour Island offers plenty for charter guests to explore.

Located just south of Miami, the two main islands, Great Abaco and Little Abaco, as well as picturesque cays offer the adventurer truly incredible beaches and plenty to do, from deep-sea fishing to snorkeling in six amazing national parks. This is the boating capital of the Bahamas, and sailing on a luxury yacht through its mangrove-covered islands and cays will leave you with the quintessential Caribbean memory.

Bahamas Yacht Charters: What To See & Do

The Bahamas is one of the world’s most revered destinations for yacht rentals. The Bahamas are a paradise of postcard-worthy beaches, beautiful tropical weather, and amazing island adventures.

Some of the Greatest Beaches in the World

The beaches of the Bahamas form such an extraordinary collection of sand and warm turquoise waters that astronauts have praised them from space.

Whether you’d like to swim or snorkel, truly relax on a deserted beach, or head to the waves for some water sports, the Bahamas has plenty of stretches of sand for fun and adventure. Favorites include Pig Beach on Big Major Cay, Dean’s Blue Hole in the Exumas, Rose Island near Nassau, Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island, Surfer’s Beach on Eleuthera, and Guana Cay and Tahiti Beach in the Abacos.

When you think you’ve tried them all, find your own deserted stretch of sand along an unnamed island to enjoy sunset cocktails or even a private beach picnic.

Crystal-Clear, Aquamarine Waters

The waters of the Bahamas are bathwater-warm year-round, hovering in the low 80s most of the year. Yet beyond their beckoning warmth, they’re also the clearest in all of the Caribbean. Expect 100-foot visibility in most seasons. That makes this the perfect destination for a cruising adventure. Whether you’d like to explore the vibrant and colorful corals, swim with sharks, or dive a blue hole, the islands’ inviting waters are the perfect setting.

Amazing Marine Life

The waters of the Bahamas boast a variety of marine ecosystems and an unparalleled opportunity to experience sea life. Witness massive humpbacks breaking surface waters, or swim with exotic tropical reef fish at James Bond’s Thunderball Grotto. Find world-class marlins and sailfish while deep-sea fishing in the Abacos. Stand at the bottom of the awe-inspiring shark exhibit at Atlantis, or feed stingrays in the lagoon on Paradise Island. Find Dolphin Cay and swim with dolphins at one of the largest marine habitats and animal rescue facilities in the world. With a Bahamas yacht charter, you can swim with the pigs at Pig Beach at Big Major Cay or dive into Compass Cay and get so close to nurse sharks that you can touch them!

World-Class Sporting Adventures

The warm turquoise seas of the Bahamas offer more than just wildlife. The clear, shallow waters are also the world’s largest playground. You can really do it all in the water: paddle-boarding, Jet Ski tours, kayaking hidden coves, wakeboarding, knee-boarding, and water-skiing. Plus, most crewed charter yachts include a garage of gear to help you have fun in the water.

Head to Surfer’s Beach in Eleuthera for big wintertime swells; it’s perfect for surfing or kitesurfing. Staniel Cay is a great paddleboarding and kayaking spot, thanks to its protected, calm waters. And taking a Jet Ski jaunt around the islands is always fun.

Great Golfing

Test your land legs at the Ocean Club Golf Course on Paradise Island, recognized as one of the top ten resort courses in North America and the Caribbean by Golf Digest. Or set sail to Emerald Bay to play a round at its Greg Norman-designed course.

Bahamas Bucket List

  • Swim with nurse sharks at Compass Cay
  • Make friends with the famous beach-dwelling pigs at Big Major Cay
  • Take a romantic stroll on Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island
  • Enjoy sunset cocktails or a beach picnic on a deserted stretch of sand
  • Share a drink with the A-listers and celebrities at Staniel Yacht Club
  • Play a round of golf at the Greg Norman-designed oceanfront golf course at Emerald Bay
  • Snorkel the Thunderball Grotto, the underground cave made famous in the James Bond movie Thunderball

Everything You Need to Know About a Bahamian Yacht Charter

Are the exuma islands worth exploring on a yacht charter in the bahamas.

The Exumas are most certainly worth exploring during a luxury yacht vacation in The Bahamas. This stunning archipelago is the most popular cruising area during a Bahamas yacht charter, but don’t let the moniker “popular” make you think they are crowded, as they are anything but. Comprising 365 islands, islets, and cays with anchorages from an hour to seven hours apart, there is plenty of space to find privacy, even during the peak cruising season, so where you go depends on how many islands you want to visit. Once you experience a boat charter in The Bahamas, you’ll see why people come back again and again.

Why charter a motor yacht in The Bahamas?

A crewed luxury motor yacht is a great way to cruise the crystal-clear waters of The Bahamas. Motor yachts offer great interior volume and superb onboard amenities. Motor yachts are also more accessible than sailing vessels, with many boasting elevators that ensure easy access to all decks. Large motor yachts often include a large garage, enabling them to carry a tender, or in some cases, several tenders, as well as a superb selection of water toys. On larger motor yachts and superyachts, expect to find amenities such as a cinema, swimming pool, hot tub, a spa, gym, beach club, and multiple deck areas for sunbathing, relaxation, and entertaining. Superyachts may also include a helipad and submersibles. The wide range of amenities and voluminous interior spaces of a motor yacht make them a popular choice with families and large groups of friends. For the best choice of motor yacht charters in The Bahamas, contact Northrop & Johnson.

Why charter a sailing yacht in The Bahamas?

Sailing yachts offer a thrilling way to explore The Bahamas and are a great choice for those seeking an eco-friendly way to cruise. Hoist up the sails and harness the power of Mother Nature; nothing matches the thrill of sailing and the deeper connection that it fosters with the ocean and the environment. Modern luxury sailing yachts boast clever and flexible layouts and fantastic onboard amenities coupled with stunning interiors. Of course, on a crewed sailing yacht charter, you will also benefit from incredible service levels courtesy of a dedicated and highly professional, and knowledgeable crew. Contact Northrop & Johnson if you want to enjoy a luxury Bahamas sailing vacation.

You can find yacht rentals in the Bahamas and in different dream destinations around the world on the Nautal website. Flexible cancellation or changes up to 15 days before check-in is allowed on selected boats. Check the conditions established with each boat owner. 

A yacht trip in the Bahamas offers sun, sand, sea and so much relaxation. You will experience freedom like never before when you charter a yacht in the Bahamas, with the licence to explore wherever and whenever you want without restrictions, at a scale and pace that suits you and your party. You can travel from port to port, enjoying adventures and excursions in your own time and at your own speed. 

With temperatures above 68ºF the whole year round and over 700 beautiful islands, cays and atolls forming spectacular archipelagos for exploring and relaxing in paradise, yacht vacations in the Bahamas are the optimal choice for seeing the best of both worlds. View the islands from a constant panoramic point of view, as you cruise by and admire the spectacular scenery while sunbathing on the comfortable sun pads with a cocktail. The crystal-clear water surrounding your Bahamas yacht rental is a sublime temperature for cooling off and swimming with stingrays and beautiful tropical fish by the coral reefs. 

What is the price of a yacht charter in the Bahamas? 

Chartering a yacht in the Bahamas costs from $4,140 per day in high season and from $24,500 per week. Yachts are generally rented with a captain and the most luxurious vessels come with a crew. Check the mandatory and included extras with the owner. Some factors that can influence the price are the type of boat, length, age, capacity, season, duration of charter, with or without a skipper, extras, etc. 

Charter a yacht with a skipper 

Do not worry if you are not confident in your navigation skills: you are easily able to embark on a skippered yacht trip in the Bahamas. Your skipper will likely be a local who will get you safely where you want to go and back again. While the sailing conditions in and around the Bahamas are generally mild with steady winds and calm seas, there are moments when storms can blow in, which is where the beauty of having a practised skipper in charge is beneficial. You can head to the cabin to stay dry and cosy while the captain expertly returns you all safely to dry land. 

If you choose to charter a yacht with a crew as well, you are guaranteed a trip of luxury.  A crew will typically consist of a couple of hostesses, a cook, and a couple of deckhands, all of whom will work their hardest to ensure that you have an amazing trip in which you don’t have to worry about anything other than relaxing.

What weather and sailing conditions can you expect when you charter a yacht in the Bahamas? 

The weather in the Bahamas is subject to great seasonal variation. You will typically see the hottest temperatures for your yacht trip in the Bahamas in August when the temperature can get as high as 88°F.  In contrast, January is the coldest month, with temperatures dipping as low as 70°F. 

The wettest month in the Bahamas, which usually sees around 1.9 inches of rain, is October .  On the other hand, if you go in December , which usually sees just 0.4 inches, you are guaranteed plenty of sun.  November is the windiest month, with wind speeds getting as high as 14.9 mph.  September is usually the calmest month for your Bahamas yacht trip, with wind speeds reaching just 11.8 mph.

When is the best time to charter a yacht in the Bahamas? 

Although you can sail in the Bahamas throughout the year, we recommend that you book your Bahamas yacht charter for some time between December and April.  During this period, the weather is warm and it falls outside of the hurricane season, which runs from June until November.  This guarantees that you will encounter mostly calm waters, perfect for setting sail.  If you want to avoid the crowds, we recommend that you go towards the end of this period, from March to April, as during these months, there will also be lower prices and more boat availability. 

What can I do with a yacht charter in the Bahamas? 

Schooner Cays are 100% on our list. Explore this gorgeous sand bank and clear water area or alternatively, organise a private helicopter or jet experience and view this spectacular natural beauty from above.  

The southeast of the Bahamas is fairly empty in comparison to other island zones, so if you are looking to cruise the crystal seas on a tranquil and exclusive yacht charter, this can be done best here. 

On the other hand, if you are looking to stay close to civilisation, Great Exuma has touristic beaches and locations with all sorts of wildlife such as swimming pigs (yes, really!!), iguanas and other fascinating species.  

Nassau the capital of the island chain, offers wonderful shopping opportunities, crisp white sandy beaches and stunning diving locations offshore where you can marvel at coral reefs, marine life and the beauty of the aquamarine sea. It is probably one of the largest communities in the Bahamas, with most of our yacht rentals based there. Delve into its vibrant culture and ample local delicacies in bars and restaurants waiting to prove how delicious this Caribbean cuisine really is!  

Treasure Cay on Great Abaco Island is a remote and truly breathtaking place where there are hardly any crowds. The turquoise sea and the snow-white sand are truly a pleasure to admire from your yacht rental.  

The Mermaid Reef diving spot near the Harbour View Marina Marsh Harbour is very reputable and a fantastic place for exploring the underwater sea world and delightfully peculiar coral reef. 

At the tip of Great Abaco, Eastern Shores is picture-perfect with its stunning houses lining the coastline. You can rent these fabulous houses, as well. Many of them have their own exclusive access to the sea through a private pontoon. 

Green Cay Island is only accessible by boat – there is no airport – so travelling to the island on your rental yacht is a great way to explore the area and enjoy the sight of green turtles getting on with their lives and ignoring the intrusion of people into their domain.  

Paradise Cove is a little slice of heaven on earth, close to the stunning Deadman's Reef which is best seen from a boat. Make sure your camera is waterproof: you will not want to lose these photos!  

Then move around the island to beautiful Port Lucaya, where you can explore the market and admire Bahaman life at its leisurely best. 

The Bahamas have a treat in store for you with its spectacular cuisine and cooling cocktails full of fruity flavour! The Bahama Mama is our favourite cocktail with an overwhelmingly good combination of rum, coconut rum, lime juice, pineapple, orange and grenadine!  

The cuisine on these paradisiac islands is uplifting and spicy with seafood playing a special part and lemon, pepper, garlic and curry doing their important bit, too. 

Lobster, stews and grilled fish are all local delicacies served here and “the conch” is a mollusc dish which can be cooked in various ways. 

What ports are in the Bahamas? 

You can rent a yacht in the Bahamas in several different locations. Our most popular being Nassau. 

Here is a list of other yachts rentals in the Bahamas: 

  • Albany Marina
  • Abaco Island
  • George Town
  • Harbour View Marina Marsh Harbour
  • Nicholls Town 
  • Bimini Islands 

How to Get to the Bahamas? 

Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) is Nassau’s international airport with plenty of external and direct flights.  

Leonard M. Thompson International Airport (MHH) is Great Abaco’s biggest airport and one of the biggest in the Bahamas in general.  

The Bahamas has over 20 airports and may have connections to Miami airport, where many direct flights from all around the world land daily.

The Bahamas is a large archipelago that’s just a 90-minute flight from the coast of Florida. Charter in the Bahamas to follow the path of ancient pirates , visiting the low-lying Abaco and Exuma island chains with their sparkling sands and shallow, azure water. Abaco has 120 miles of cays and islands , showcasing some of the finest beaches, sheltered anchorages, coves and British colonial architecture. Head to the 365 cays of the Exumas during your Bahamas yacht charter and stroll the famous sandbar, explore endless pristine beaches or sail a magnificent marine park , witnessing all sorts of nature’s wonders including the world-famous swimming pigs . While in the Exumas you’ll be able to island hop to the famous Big Major Cay (AKA Pig Beach, known for its swimming pigs), Norman’s Cay (once owned by Pablo Escobar and the site of a sunken airplane ), and Thunderball Grotto (made famous by the James Bond film, Thunderball).

In the Bahamas, crewed catamaran charters are the ideal charter yacht to explore the archipelago, as their low drafts enable you to navigate the shallow waters and anchor only meters off desert island white sand beaches . The perfect platform for family and friends , a crewed catamaran charter yacht boasts plenty of space for sunbathing, dining, and relaxing.

Top 10 Bahamas Catamaran Yacht Charters

Having examined the trends over the previous few seasons, we present these 10 Catamarans available for charter in the Bahamas. These choices are based on our own experience, and feedback from previous guests , who loved these particular charters and always left positive feedback.

10. SERENDIPITY  |  62ft

Serendipity, a 62 ft l uxury yacht charter catamaran is best suited for 6 adults and 2 small children in its three cabins and two bunk beds. She features an 8-person motor dinghy , 4 SUPs, also fishing and snorkeling gear.

Her two-person crew consists of US-born captain Matthew, an erstwhile professional musician and bartender, who has been sailing in the Exuma Cays for over twelve years and has become intimately familiar with some truly prime spots. His favorite place on earth to sail is the Bahamas, especially the Exumas, which showcases the clearest water in the world and every shade of blue. Chef/ mate Jennica is from Sweden, and has been travelling and learning new things all over the world, including cooking, which she explores to perfection aboard Serendipity.

GUEST EXPERIENCE

“From the first meeting with our captain and first mate, we knew we were in good hands. Jennica’s food and love of the ocean made her a huge hit with all, especially my nieces that are 9 and 13. Movie nights on the deck were a huge hit but snorkeling took it to a whole new level. They took care of all our needs without us even noticing, they made it seamless. We have already started saving for our next trip!”

“Indi did a fantastic job of skippering the boat. He provided great recommendations when the weather made us change our itinerary and always had our safety and comfort as a priority. Tiger Lily was very comfortable for our family and her condition was excellent. The selection of water toys was endless. We thoroughly enjoyed every stop during our week at sea. Although weather conditions required us to modify our initial itinerary, the suggestions provided by Indi were perfect. Overall the trip was excellent and we hope to be able to do it again next year.”

The 55 Bali was great as we were the first paying customers. Beautiful boat with plenty of room. The Captain and first mate were great. Food was top notch and so good that we opted to not do 1 shore dinner and just ate on the boat. We saw and did everything that we set out to see. I would repeat in a heartbeat.

Frequenty Asked Questions

When is the best time to go on a bahamas yacht charter.

The optimal time to charter a motor yacht in the Bahamas aligns with the region’s peak season, spanning from  late November to early May . During these months, the Bahamas experience  mild temperatures ,  minimal rainfall , and favorable sea conditions, creating an ideal setting for a seamless and enjoyable yachting experience. This timeframe ensures that charter clients can fully appreciate the stunning beauty of the Bahamas, explore its diverse islands, and indulge in the pleasures of cruising in optimal weather conditions.

Make sure to book your Bahamas yacht charter well in advance. Ideally, you would inquire about your coming charter 12 months in advance .  WHY?  The best motor yachts are often  fully booked  long in advance and it’s not unusual to see popular dates booked  2 summers ahead  for a Bahamas yacht charter . Inquiring less than 6 months ahead often means that your first choice is unavailable for charter.

Where should I start my Bahamas yacht charter?

Most of our charters  start and end in  Nassau , The Capital city of The Bahamas. This is where the airport is located, and it is here you will find the best provisioning to get ready for your Bahamas yacht charter.

After leaving Nassau most of our clients choose a route heading south along the Exumas, stopping at locations such as  Highborne Cay, Norman’s Cay, Warderick Wells Cay,  and  Staniel Cay ,  and then doing an anticlockwise loop up to  Eleuthera before ending in Nassau again at the end of their Bahamas yacht charter.

Also, check out our 7-day Bahamas Yacht Charter Itinerary as well as our article about the top 5 yacht charter destinations in the Bahamas .

The Bahamas Yacht Charter

Introducing Flat-rate discounted charters in the award-winning Caribbean, eligible for departures through August 2024!

Why Charter in the Bahamas?

The Abacos have been The Bahamas’ boating capital since colonial times, and whether you are a sailing purist, willing to tack until the last gasp of wind, or just a sun worshiper joining the adventure to relax and explore with fins and snorkel, this is your paradise.

https://navigare-yachting.com/Discover The Bahamas with a Sailing Charter

About Our Location

While reconstruction efforts continue in the Abacos following the devastation caused by hurricane Dorian in 2019, Navigare is excited and proud to be a part of the recovery with a new charter base opened in 2021.

The Navigare base is located in Marsh Harbor on site at the Conch Inn Hotel and Marina , only 10 minutes from the Leonard Thompson Airport.

Explore our base!

Cruisers and charterers in the Abaco will enjoy a steadily warm climate with sustained trade winds; similar to southern Florida, generally sunny with slightly colder temperatures from December through February.

Local Considerations

cost to charter yacht in bahamas

The official currency for the Bahamas is the Bahamian Dollar, which, like the US dollar, is denoted with a dollar sign. The denotation B$ is used to distinguish it from other Dollar currencies. The U.S. dollar is on par with the Bahamian dollar and is accepted all over the Bahamas, so there is no need to change to Bahamian if you are able to pay in USD.

Fleet Size / Boats Offered

The Navigare fleet in the Bahamas consists of sailing catamarans and power catamarans:

  • Sailing catamarans 40 to 50 ft from Bali and Lagoon
  • Power catamarans 36 to 48 ft from Aquila

Charter Services Offered

• Bareboat charters

• All-inclusive charters

Check-in days

In the Bahamas, the minimum charter duration is 3 days, and there are no set check-in or checkout days.

Check-in: 4:00 PM Checkout: 10:00 AM

Carefree Pack

Navigare Carefree includes damage waiver insurance with full coverage, welcome package, final cleaning, bed sheets & towels, dinghy, outboard engine & fuel, propane gas, full water tanks, and snorkeling equipment.

Yacht Fuel is not included – the fuel tank will be full when your charter starts and you are responsible for topping off the fuel tank at the end of your charter. The price of the Carefree Pack varies by boat size and is a flat fee for bookings up to one week. A surcharge applies for bookings of 2+ weeks.

Review what's included onboard.

Optional Extras

How much does a Bahamas yacht vacation cost?

We at Your Boat Holiday are a leading charter company in the rental of yachts and private boats all over the world. Our goal is to provide assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to our customers, making use of extremely qualified professionals and always reserving the most competitive offers to our customers.

During our work, one of the most frequently asked questions is: how much does a sailing or yacht vacation cost? What is included in the rental prices and what is not?

Since Your Boat Holiday pays great attention to offering its customers extreme professionalism and transparency, we have prepared this article dedicated to this topic, focusing on a sailing holiday in the Bahamas.

SEND YOUR ENQUIRY FOR CHARTER IN THE BAHAMAS

boat-charter-cost-bahamas

In order to answer this question, several aspects and factors must first be evaluated.

Knowing the type of rental that the customer wants is certainly the most important (and primary) point to allow us to assist him adequately. Our managers will thus be able to work for you by selecting the most suitable boats for your requests, evaluating alternatives, and answering all your related questions.

Let’s see what these aspects are:

cost-prices-yacht-for-rent-in-the-bahamas

When do you intend to travel to the Bahamas?

A first fundamental factor in determining the cost of a rental in the Bahamas is certainly the time of year in which you want to take your vacation.

In this regard, it must be considered that the high season (i.e. the most expensive) in the Bahamas is from mid-November to mid-March since in this period the climate is ideal and the weather conditions are optimal for navigating these waters.

This does not mean that you cannot choose different periods, such as spring or summer, but the risk of running into some passing thunderstorms increases.

yacht-prices-bahamas

What type of boat can be rented in the Bahamas?

Equally important in order to determine the price of a sailing holiday in the Bahamas is certainly the boat type choice.

The type of boat you want to charter must meet your needs, both in terms of comfort and in terms of space required based on the number of guests expected.

In general, there are four main types, as follows:

Motor yacht

Each boat has its own characteristics and comforts, its advantages, and its trade-offs to keep in mind. Catamarans and motor yachts certainly offer more comfort in terms of indoor and outdoor spaces, entertainment, and water games and for this reason, they are usually more expensive than classic monohulls.

VIEW ALL THE YACHTS FOR CHARTER IN THE BAHAMAS

bahamas-yacht-charter-price

Do you need a skipper or a crew on board?

Closely related to the choice of the boat is the choice of the crew on board. Let’s see what are the options:

Choosing a crewed charter means chartering a yacht (sailing or motor) with crew members on board, not just the captain. The number of crew members depends on the boat size and the client’s needs. It can be very numerous but generally consists of at least one skipper, a sailor, a hostess (who usually takes care of the internal cleaning), and a cook.

The difference between the full crew and skippered charter (bareboat + skipper) is that a crewed yacht has a stable crew on board, who work there regularly just as a team, while a skipper is hired by you to your specific rental. Of course, travel brokers like Your Boat Holiday are able to provide their customers with the best skippers. So you don’t need to find one by yourself.

cost-of-boat-skipper-bahamas

The cost of a skipper is around 180.00 / 200.00 dollars (+ food) per day in the Bahamas.

If, on the other hand, you already have a valid boat license and you are an experienced sailor, then the bareboat is the one for you, that is, renting a boat without a skipper.

Generally, this possibility is valid for sailing boats or catamarans, up to 50/52 feet in length, because a crew on board is usually required for larger boats.

Finally, if you want to combine this charter with the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy new experiences, then you can simply rent a cabin, share the boat with other people and share the costs. This option is often chosen by those who love to travel alone and is called “cabin charter”.

how-much-to-charter-a-yacht-in-the-bahamas

Where do you intend to cruise once you arrive in the Bahamas?

Another very important aspect to consider is the chosen itinerary.

The Bahamas is an archipelago of hundreds of islands that offer endless routes and alternatives as destinations for your charter. Hidden coves and bays, deserted islands and beaches, atolls lost in the crystalline sea, are at home in the Bahamas.

A destination example could be the Bimini archipelago, easily accessible from nearby Miami . Or the wonderful Exuma Cays , reachable starting from Nassau and sailing south.

cost-for-chartering-a-yacht-in-the-bahamas

How many days do you need to rent the yacht for?

When planning your Bahamas sailing vacation, don’t forget that the minimum number of charter days is 5 and that during the Christmas and New Year periods it is very likely that operators require a minimum of 10 charter days.

Recommended: 7 Nights / 8 Days Yacht Charter Itinerary from Nassau

bahamas-catamaran-charter-prices

What expenses are NOT included in the rental cost?

Chartering a crewed yacht price usually includes the use of the boat for the booked period and the services of the crew (in some cases also the mooring in the port at the main base).

Among the extra costs, the main ones concern the A.P.A. and VAT, to be considered in addition to the rental rate. (A.P.A. means Advanced Provisioning Allowance and is a lump sum payment that covers all of your onboard expenses during your yacht charter like fuel, ports, food, drinks, etc.).

To these costs must be added the security deposit (on bareboat rental) and tips for the crew (at the customer’s discretion)

Now that we have focused on the main aspects to consider when estimating the cost of chartering a boat in the Bahamas, we are ready to make concrete cost estimates, depending on the type of boat chosen.

A Bahamas Yacht Charter - Where to start from.

You have come to the right place to learn about options to consider on a private yacht charter in the Bahamas, what type of yacht might work best, what’s involved in choosing and booking a private yachts, and how unique your Bahamas charter can be.

Charter a yacht in Nassau

Central Bahamas

Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. Nassau is the quintessential Bahamas hot spot! The town of Nassau is centrally located on New Providence Island with a large International airport and major resorts. Many Bahamas charters start here for its convenience to both the Exumas and Eleuthera. Eleuthera is a Bahamian island bordering the Atlantic to the east, and it is a dream Bahamas destination. The sand is pink and the houses are painted in picture perfect bright colors. Eleuthera is warm and inviting, and one can start a vacation there or ideally start in Nassau.

Charter a yacht in the Exumas

Southern Bahamas

The islands of the Exumas are picture book perfect in every way and one of the most popular destinations for Bahamas yacht charters, with a typical boarding in Nassau. The beaches are beautiful, the area is secluded, and the natural wildlife is exotic and plentiful. The Exuma Land and Sea Park is part of what allows this part of the Bahamas to remain so perfect. Further south would be the Turks and Caicos which are not common for bahamas charters with few yachts based there, if any.

Charter a yacht in the Abacos

Northern Bahamas

The Abacos Islands are amoungst the more Northern part of the Bahamas and are a much less travelled Bahamas yacht charter destination. When you leave the quiet comfort of your charter yacht, you will be pleasantly surprised to find the warm atmosphere of the islands itself. There are smaller cays to the east and north such as Treasure Cay, Man O'War, Green Turtle, and Elbow Cay to name a few - who could resist names such as these? The Abacos, while not as popular a Bahamas yacht destination, can be an option. Freeport and Grand Bahama are much more popular for land based vacations than charters.

Be Confident Booking Your Bahamas Yacht charter.

When planning a vacation of this magnitude confidence is of the utmost importance. You need to feel confident in the people you are working with, so that you can relax and enjoy your vacation and the time leading up to it.

How Much Does it Cost to Charter a Yacht in Bahamas?

Cost to charter yacht in Bahamas

Are you dreaming of sailing through the crystal-clear waters of the Bahamas aboard your own private yacht? The allure of pristine beaches, vibrant marine life, and secluded coves awaits you. But before you set sail, let’s dive into one of the most pressing questions: How much does it cost to charter a yacht in the Bahamas?

Understanding Yacht Charter Costs:

Chartering a yacht in the Bahamas offers a luxurious and personalized experience, but it comes with a price tag. The cost of chartering a yacht can vary significantly depending on several factors:

  • Type and Size of Yacht: Yacht charter costs are influenced by the type and size of the vessel. Larger yachts with more amenities and higher crew capacity generally command higher prices. From sleek motor yachts to classic sailing vessels, the Bahamas offers a wide range of options to suit your preferences and budget.
  • Duration of Charter: Yacht charters can be booked for varying durations, ranging from a day to several weeks or even months. Longer charters typically offer better value per day compared to shorter ones.
  • Seasonality: The time of year you choose to charter a yacht can also impact the cost. The Bahamas experience high and low seasons, with peak demand during the winter months when the weather is mild and dry. Expect higher prices and limited availability during this time.
  • Additional Expenses: Beyond the base charter fee, there are additional expenses to consider, such as fuel, provisions, crew gratuities, dockage fees, and optional extras like water toys or onboard chefs. These costs can add up and should be factored into your budget.

Average Costs of Chartering a Yacht in the Bahamas:

While exact prices can vary, here’s a rough estimate of what you can expect to pay for chartering a yacht in the Bahamas:

  • Day Charters: For a day charter on a smaller yacht suitable for a group of up to 12 guests, prices typically start at around $2,000 to $5,000. This usually includes the yacht, crew, fuel, and basic amenities.
  • Week-Long Charters: Week-long charters on mid-sized yachts can range from $15,000 to $50,000 or more, depending on the season, yacht size, and amenities. Luxury yachts with extensive features and top-notch service can command prices upwards of $100,000 per week.

Tips for Getting the Best Value:

  • Book in Advance: Secure your charter well in advance, especially if you’re planning to visit during the peak season. This allows you to access a wider selection of yachts and potentially negotiate better rates.
  • Be Flexible: Consider traveling during the shoulder seasons or opting for a shorter charter to save on costs. Flexibility with your travel dates and yacht preferences can help you find better deals.
  • Compare Offers: Don’t settle for the first quote you receive. Shop around and compare offers from different charter companies to find the best value for your budget.
  • Communicate Your Needs: Clearly communicate your preferences, itinerary, and any special requests to the charter company. This ensures that they can tailor the experience to meet your expectations.

Chartering a yacht in the Bahamas is a luxurious yet attainable experience that offers unparalleled freedom and adventure. While the cost may seem daunting at first, careful planning and consideration can help you find a charter option that fits your budget without compromising on quality. So, what are you waiting for? Embark on your Bahamian yachting journey and create unforgettable memories amidst the breathtaking beauty of these tropical islands.

With the speed of these vessels, you’ll be able to see everything on your wish list in no time.

If you’re planning a longer charter of a week or more, you should choose a vessel that includes amenities you’ll need during your stay.

For a more luxurious holiday, you might consider a gulet, and for an authentic sailing experience a sailboat.

What does this include?

There are a lot of options for what to do and see when renting a luxury yacht charter in the Bahamas, and here is an example of an itinerary of what to do when you are on the Bahamas private boat charter — start your sailing from Abaco and explore the beautiful islands on the way to Nassau.

To get to the Abacos islands, fly from Nassau to Marsh Harbour Airport and then transfer to the marina. Once you’re ready, board your sailboat or catamaran rental and set sail for Treasure Cay Beach, one of the most stunning points on the island of Abaco. After enjoying the atmosphere of the white sands and turquoise waters, head to Green Turtle Cay, which offers plenty of highlights that locals enjoy from deep sea fishing and diving to exploring the historic sites by golf cart.

Over the next few days set course for some of the other smaller Bahamian islands, like Guana Cay for delicious seafood and scenic reefs, Dickies Cay for a day on the beach and exploring a fascinating shipwreck, Sandy Cay for diving, and Harbour Island for pink sand beaches. You can even stop by Rose Island for snorkelling amid some gorgeous sea critters before heading to Nassau, where you can give yourself a few days to explore by land before heading home.

What are you waiting for? The sea is calling your name! Book your Bahamas luxury yacht charter today!

Have you been dreaming of sailing around the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean? With Océans Evasion, this dream can quickly become reality! Look through our many options for charters in the Bahamas and set sail to your dreams.

The Bahamas is an archipelago made up of over 700 islands and is located just north of Cuba and south of Miami, Florida. Known for its pink sand beach on Harbour Island , its exotic landscape, and its breathtaking turquoise waters, the Bahamas is the perfect getaway.

We recommend making Nassau , the capital of the Bahamas, the start of your yacht holiday. Here you’ll be able to experience the tropical ambiance, dreamy beaches, as well as luxury resorts before setting off on your boating trip. The locals in the Bahamas are known for their hospitality and welcoming attitude and are sure to make you feel right at home during your charter experience while sailing around the numerous isolated islets and unexplored coves.

Where to sail in The Bahamas?

Choosing where to sail your private yacht in the Bahamas can sometimes feel overwhelming, with its 700 islands, it’s normal to feel a bit confused. A few popular locations to start your luxury yacht charter from are Nassau, Marsh Harbour, and Freeport.

For some ideas on where to sail during your charter experience, check out the list below:

  • The Great Abaco – this island group is a great place to explore and the perfect place for diving aficionados. While here make sure to also visit Green Turtle Cay, Tahiti Beach, and Elbow Cay.
  • Eleuthera – known for its pink beaches, this island is the best place to go if you’re looking for a visually stunning beach experience. You can drop your anchor at Windemere Island, a popular destination with celebrities.
  • Big Major Cay - this uninhibited island in Exuma is famous for its swimming pigs! Never heard of them? Now is the time to see this fascinating phenomenon! You can also head to Staniel Cay to see them.
  • Thunderball Grotto – located just west of Staniel Cay, this underwater cave system is the perfect location for people who are looking to go snorkeling, diving, or wading. The area is teeming with exotic marine life that will leave you stunned.
  • Dean’s Blue Hole - this charter destination is located off of Long Island, this hole is one of the deepest blue holes in the world, measuring about 663 feet in depth!

For people looking for a longer adventure on their private yacht, start your trip either in Fort Lauderdale or Miami and set sail towards the Bahamas. The journey is around 50 nautical miles long and can be completed in a day or even in a few hours depending on the type of boat you choose to rent.

How much does it cost to rent a boat in The Bahamas?

The cost of a boat rental in the bahamas will vary depending on several different factors. some of these factors include the type, size, and model of the boat, the duration of the rental, gas price, as well as additional services such as hiring a captain and/or crew. choosing to add other amenities such as water toys will influence the final rental cost. below are a few example rental costs by boat type:.

  • Catamaran with accommodation for 12 people: $1,258/day
  • Motorboat with or without a captain, $4,079/day
  • Luxury motor yacht: $10,479/day

The harbors in The Bahamas

With over 700 islands and many well-known coastal cities and towns, you can bet that finding a harbor or marina in the Bahamas is a pretty simple task. That being said, we do recommend scouting out a few before the start of your charter as it will help you orient yourself better.

Here are some in the area:

  • Nassau Harbour
  • Bay Street Marina
  • The Marina at Atlantis
  • Compass Cay
  • Harbour Bary Marina
  • Great Harbour Cay Marina

What can you see/do in The Bahamas?

If you’re looking to relax and for a good time, the Bahamas is the place for you! During your sailing trip, take some time to dock your boat and explore the islands on foot.

Check out some of the following places and things to do in the Bahamas:

  • Shop at the Port Lucaya Marketplace
  • Enjoy a Bahamian Fish Fry on Arawak Cay

Renting a boat with a skipper

Skip the cruise ships and set sail at your own pace with your own private boat rental. With Océans Evasion, you can choose to rent with or without a captain and/or crew. Having a local in your midst while sailing in The Bahamas is a great opportunity to discover different anchorages and sites that you might not otherwise have visited; like Abacos, Exuma, Biminis, San Salvador, and Cat Island can not be missed.

So sit back and relax while the skipper and crew take care of everything: docking, anchoring, navigating, etc. Your charter in The Bahamas will be one to remember!

What boat should I rent?

The boat you rent will depend on the types of activities you would like to do and the duration of your rental. Some boats are better for water sports, for example, while others are better for overnight charters. When choosing your boat, make sure to take into account how many people will be onboard, what activities you would like to do, what extra amenities you will need, etc.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the boat owner directly for any specifications you may need.

When is the best time to go?

The great thing about sailing in the Bahamas is that you can do it year-round! The archipelago’s consistently warm weather makes it a perfect winter getaway with temperatures as high as 80°F and no lower than 60°F.

January tends to be one of the best months to visit the islands as they’re not to busy and the dry season has just started. May and June are when temperatures start to reach the 90s and the start of the rainy season. From September on, it's the off-season and a nice time to travel, but beware of possible weather conditions like hurricanes!

A yacht rental in the Bahamas combines the best of paradise with a luxurious floating resort. With idyllic beauty, crystal-clear waters, and miles of white sandy beaches, the allure of the Bahamas is undeniable. However, it’s crucial to grasp the financial aspects of this adventure. In this guide, we will navigate factors that influence the cost of yacht rentals in the Bahamas.

A Bahamas yacht charter offers the flexibility to tailor your experience. Depending on your preferences, it can be modest and simple or opulent and extravagant.

yacht rental bahamas

Unique Costs Associated with a Yacht Rental Bahamas

When planning your yacht rental in the Bahamas, consider some unique costs. These often-overlooked costs can have a substantial impact on your overall budget. Here’s a closer look at these unique expenses and why they matter:

Bahamas Value Added Tax for Charters

Currently, this is 10% of the charter fee. This is subject to change.

Bahamas Charter Fee

The Bahamas requires all private vessels, including yachts, to obtain a charter license. The fees for these permits can vary based on the yacht’s size and length of stay. The current Bahamas Charter Tax is 4% of the charter fee.

Fuel and Provisioning Costs

Yacht rentals in the Bahamas come with two unique expenses: fuel and provisioning. Since many of the Bahamas’ islands are far away from each other, fuel can be more expensive than on the mainland.

More Expensive Islands

The islands with more infrastructure and attractions tend to be more expensive.

Nassau and Paradise Island

The capital city, Nassau, and the nearby Paradise Island are popular. However, these places also tend to be more expensive. That’s because of their high-end resorts, upscale amenities, and nightlife. Demand for yacht rentals is generally higher in this region, contributing to higher prices.

The Exumas | Yacht Rental Bahamas

The Exumas are exclusive and remote and favored by those seeking privacy and pristine natural beauty. However, the exclusivity often comes with a higher price tag. Since these more remote islands have limited accessibility, provisioning and maintenance are more expensive.

The Abacos is a sailing hub with many picturesque marinas. While these marinas provide excellent amenities, it’s important to note that the cost of staying in these marinas can add to your budget.

Some of the luxurious, world-class marinas in the Abacos are

  • Abaco Beach Resort
  • Walker’s Cay
  • Hope Town Inn & Marina

The Abacos also have delightful restaurants and dining options from casual to upscale. Prices for dining out can vary, so you can choose options that fit your budget and preferences.

Less Expensive Islands

Andros, the biggest island in The Bahamas, is like a hidden gem, mostly untouched and full of exciting outdoor activities. Scuba dive, go deep-sea or fly fishing, explore national forests, and discover intriguing blue holes.

For an untouched and tranquil paradise, Andros is an affordable alternative. Its undeveloped nature and limited tourist infrastructure make it a budget-friendly choice.

Eleuthera and Cat Island | Yacht Rental Bahamas

These islands offer a quieter, less crowded atmosphere with fewer high-end facilities. As a result, you can find inexpensive experiences.

Long Island

Known for its affordability, Long Island provides budget-friendly, authentic Bahamian experiences. Its lack of extensive resort development keeps costs in check.

Additional Costs and Considerations for a Yacht Rental Bahamas

Beyond the initial yacht rental cost, there are several other expenses to consider:

Crew Gratuity

Tipping the crew on a yacht is customary and an important part of yachting etiquette. On average, plan to tip the crew between 15% to 20% of the total charter fee . This amount is typically shared among the crew members.

The quality of service provided by the crew should also influence your decision. If the crew has gone above and beyond to make your experience exceptional, you may consider tipping on the higher end of the range.

Scuba Diving

You can still enjoy world-class diving if your yacht rental in the Bahamas does not include scuba equipment. If you’re a diver, you won’t want to miss the marine life in the Bahamas.

Scuba diving fees can vary based on location, the number of dives, and renting gear. Here are some key considerations:

  • Per Dive Fee: Scuba diving fees are often calculated on a per-dive basis. The cost per dive can range from approximately $50 to $100 or more, depending on the dive site and the dive operator. Some locations, particularly those near renowned dive spots or shipwrecks, may charge higher fees.
  • Equipment Rental: The rental fee typically covers items like the scuba tank, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD), and wetsuit. Rental fees can range from $30 to $60 per dive.
  • Guided Dives: You may prefer guided dives, particularly if you’re not familiar with the local underwater terrain. Guided dives come with an additional cost for the services of a certified dive instructor or divemaster.
  • Certification Courses: If you’re not a certified diver, you may consider taking a certification course . Currently, these courses can cost between $300 to $600.

Custom Excursions for Your Yacht Rental in the Bahamas

Custom excursions, such as ATV or Jeep tours, fishing charters, or personalized experiences, may come at an extra cost. Before your charter, we will discuss your desires and associated costs. Go to our Frequently Asked Questions page for additional information.

A luxury yacht charter in the Bahamas provides an opportunity to explore the beauty of these islands. Understanding the factors that influence the cost will help you plan an unforgettable Bahamian yachting adventure that suits your budget.

Denison Yachting is pleased to announce that two of its charter yachts, 135′ Horizon STAY SALTY and 120′ Sovereign Yachts REAL SUMMERTIME , will now offer all-inclusive yacht charter packages , starting in the British Virgin Islands and the Bahamas . Unlike traditional charter offerings that have separate rates for high and low seasons along with additional fees for taxes, advanced provisioning allowances, and other costs, this new simplified option provides a single, all-inclusive price. This flat rate covers the charter fee and all associated expenses, ensuring a straightforward and transparent pricing experience.

Charter Yacht STAY SALTY

Denison Yachting began offering charters in 2008 and has since grown to include a dedicated team of charter specialists who help clients build the yacht charter vacations of their dreams. While Denison will continue to offer regular bespoke charters, where guests can customize every single element of their yacht vacation, the new all-inclusive charter program on these select yachts offers an effortless alternative.

“This is an exciting initiative to simplify and encourage new charter clients to try one of the most epic travel experiences imaginable!” stated Ben Farnborough , Denison’s Chief Operating Officer. “Often we’re made aware that there’s a perception outside of the yachting industry that chartering a yacht is inherently complex. Our goal here is to change that. These all-inclusive Denison charter options are straightforward and seamless.”

Charter Yacht REAL SUMMERTIME

These curated vacations feature a fixed itinerary and menu, eliminating the hassle of filling out lengthy preference sheets and allowing professionals to plan the trip seamlessly. With a fixed itinerary, all the guesswork is eliminated, enabling charter guests to sit back and relax. Denison has collaborated with these charter yachts’ owners and crew to determine defined dates, docking prices, fuel costs, and set cocktail lists and menus. This ensures that packaged charter vacations are not only possible but also effortless for interested clients.

Additionally, through its partnership with Magellan Jets , Denison is extending this concept of simplicity and price transparency beyond the yacht charter experience. Magellan Jets provides seamless, private flying from any point of origin directly to the yacht’s location, with every detail meticulously coordinated with Denison. Jet Card clients fly with the certainty of fixed, transparent pricing for every trip as part of the industry’s most flexible and customizable Jet Card. For instance, private travel for 12 passengers from Teterboro, New Jersey to Nassau, Bahamas is available to Magellan Jets card holders for $48,000 with as little as seven days’ notice.
