Bahamas Yacht Charter – Enjoying An Exumas Yacht Charter

Bahamas Yacht Charters

Exploring the Exumas one cay at a time

The Exumas, which are part of the Bahamas, are a collection of 365 cays and islands stretching over 120 miles.  Two main islands, Great Exuma, and Little Exuma, form the southern tip.  Hidden coves, bays, and harbours throughout are magnets for yachts and sport-fisherman.  The waters are so shallow in the Exumas, that cruise ships and many sailing yachts cannot get there.  But private charter yachts available through Churchill Yacht Partners can take you to a place so rich in colors and secluded.  The Exumas are a perfect destination for your Bahamas yacht charter.

Located in the center of the map above, courtesy of, lies Great Exuma.  The cays and islands from Nassau to the Southeast to Great Exuma is an excellent region to charter a yacht.  Other great itineraries are the following:  1) to the north in the Abacos, 2) Andros/Nassau/Eleuthera and 3) for the more serious of charterers, spend 10 to 14-days down in Acklins where it is just the you, the yacht and the fish.

The following is a sample itinerary from an experienced charter captain for a week long Bahamas yacht charter in the Exumas.  We kept it brief on purpose – the captain and CYP charter specialist will work with you to create a more detailed itinerary or for those who just want to “wing-it” based on where you are having fun, then a basic itinerary like this one works just fine!

One of the benefits of a luxury yacht charter is having the freedom to work with the Captain and Churchill Yacht Partners to create the perfect itinerary for you and your guests.  We take great pride is listening to your desires and creating a yachting vacation that you will thoroughly enjoy.  This isn’t our vacation, this isn’t the crew’s vacation – this is YOUR vacation! That’s why we listen to what you want to see and do and at what pace you want to go.  From there we can recommend yachts that are a perfect fit for you.
