Exuma Bahamas Overview & Highlights

Discover top highlights and embark on an unforgettable Exuma Bahamas yacht charter sailing trip.

A typical lunch stop and snorkel, all to ourselves | this one at Fowl Cay

The Exumas might be my favorite yacht charter destination. It's nothing like other areas in the Caribbean, such as the British Virgin Islands, and that's part of the reason we love it. It's has a character completely unique to anywhere else.

So why do we keep returning year after year?
  • Unbelievable shades of blue - some of the prettiest water you'll find on this planet
  • Protected sailing - the Exuma Bank is well-protected and you can often sail to windward in relative comfort
  • Solitude - you can choose to anchor almost every night, all by yourself if you wish
  • Great fishing potential - the Exuma Sound drop is literally just a stone's throw away in some places, where you can catch wahoo, mahi mahi, and tuna
  • Sandbars - cocktails, lunch, and swimming, what else could you want?
  • Logistics - it's close to the US mainland with many direct flights - you'll be on your yacht with a cocktail in time to catch an epic sunset
