From epic adventures to relaxing white-sand beaches, the Bahamas have it all, and there’s no better way to experience their beauty than by boat.
About the Bahamas
The stunning Bahamas archipelago is conveniently nestled off the coast of Florida, so it’s very easy to fly here from the continental U.S. Many vacationers young and young at heart love to travel here because of the amazing weather, gorgeous waters, and a variety of activities both for the adventurer and the leisurely visitor. So dive in and discover what your Bahamas yacht charter has in store.
The best time of year to visit the Bahamas is December through May, which is considered the country’s peak season for tourism. This is because the islands commonly experience hurricanes form the summer through fall, so you don’t want adverse weather conditions to affect your boating trip. You’ll typically be met with sunny skies and occasional rain in the spring, and the lovely temperatures make this a great time of year to visit.
Bahamas yacht charters on Sailo
Sailo offers daily, multi-day, and weekly charters, so there is an option for every traveler. While some travelers like to book a yacht charter for just one day in the Bahamas as an add-on to their trip, many prefer to extend and book a multi-day boat rental. Sailo offers yacht charters for multiple days, meaning you can rent a boat for a 3-6 day period, depending on your travel preferences. This is ideal for a shorter trip to the Bahamas like a long weekend, or for the traveler who wants to have a vacation on land and sea to explore the islands from both perspectives.
If you’re interested in a charter for less than one week, make sure to utilize our Message the Owner amenity on the boat page to coordinate your plans with the owner and explore your rental options.

One week itinerary for exploring the Bahamas by boat
There are plenty of options for where to start your yacht charter in the Bahamas, but one of the best ways to see some of the most beautiful island destinations is by starting out in Abaco and touring for one week by boat before ending your charter in the capital of Nassau. Here is an example of a one week itinerary for exploring the Bahamas from Abaco to Nassau and everything in between.
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 boat 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 snorkeling amid some gorgeous sea critters before heading to Nassau, where you can give yourself a few days to explore by land before heading home.
