Welcome to Nassau - the capital of theBahamas, a must-see city for any tropical vacation lover. Thy crystal blue sea, relaxing beaches, laid-back yet fun atmosphere, and delicious dining options make it a place you’ll never forget.
Whether you’re looking to do a land-and-sea vacation and stay at one of its famous resorts before climbing aboard a daily boat rental in Nassau, or if you want to spend over an entire week sailing around New Providence Island and surrounding destinations, you’ll find the perfect yacht charter for your tropical paradise vacation on Sailo.
How to find the perfect charter for you
The boat rental from Nassau, Bahamas you choose for your trip will primarily depend on how long you plan to sail during your vacation. Is sailing the main focus of your trip where you plan to book one of our boat charters for a week or more? Do you want to live on the water for a few days, or do you just want to go on a day trip?
On Sailo you can find your perfect Bahamas boat rental for the day, as well as multi-day, and weekly trips from Nassau, so you can easily choose the option that fits best with your vacation plans, whether it’s a sailboat, motor boat, or catamaran.
A daily yacht rental from Nassau, Bahamas is the perfect add-on to any trip in the area, and is very popular for weekenders or for those who are just starting out with boating. Multi-day charters are a great happy medium between daily and weekly. You can choose a boat rental for a 3-6 day period during a shorter trip or a long weekend.
Whether you choose a daily or multi-day rental, make sure you contact the owner by clicking the Message Owner blue button, so you can coordinate your travel plans and explore all of your options.
Of course, a great way to explore the islands is by on a beautiful sailboat, motor yacht or catamaran, so we also recommend a week-long sailing vacation when traveling to this tropical paradise.
A Weekly Yacht Charter from Nassau, Bahamas
Renting a boat for one week or more will give you plenty of time to visit every destination on your bucket list, take part in water sports like snorkeling and diving, stop by some of the most beautiful spots in the entire archipelago, and even come across the hidden gems that you may not notice on a vacation that’s entirely on land.
One reason why so many travelers prefer to book a weekly Bahamas boat rental is the ability to reserve for free. Within the first 24 hours, you can reserve it (no credit card required), modify the reservation, add customizations like a skipper or booking it as bareboat if you don’t need a captain, and cancel the reservation if it isn’t the right fit.
The option to reserve for free for 24 hours is only available for weekly boat charters in Nassau, so be sure to take advantage of this amenity if you plan to sail for one week or more.
Tips for visiting Nassau
With its own international airport, the capital city is one of the most convenient destinations to travel to from all of the Bahamian islands. You can book a direct flight and then add transportation to and from the marina using Sailo’s convenient booking platform.
You should also be mindful of the weather, since the best time of year to go is late winter and spring to avoid the peak hurricane seasons from summer through fall. Although the islands are beautiful year-round, you will find the best sailing conditions during the earlier half of the year.
One-week sailing itinerary
Before starting off your trip on a Sailo boat rental from Nassau, we recommend taking a couple of days to explore the city on land. Dine on delicious local food, check out the shopping and entertainment scene, and the extravagant resorts nearby. After you’ve taken in all that this beautiful city has to offer, it’s time to set course for the other islands on your vacation’s must-see list.
On this week-long sailing trip, you’ll be heading from Nassau to the Out Islands - the Exumas - an absolutely stunning array of little pieces of paradise. Your first stop will be Rose Island, where you can get your group on and try snorkeling and fishing off the island’s coast (if it is available, you can add the equipment as a booking request).
Your next stops will be the palm-lined beaches of Norman’s Cay, the historic land-and-sea park at Wardrick Wells, and the iguana-populated island of Allen’s Cay. You can even spend a couple of days in one or more of these stops if you truly fall in love with this paradise like we did. Finally, head back on your boat rental to Nassau, to enjoy everything you may have missed before you embarked on your Caribbean sailing adventure.
