Sailing in the Bahamas on a Sailo yacht charter
Hello from the beautiful Bahamas! One of the most charming destinations in all of the Caribbean, the Bahamian islands are true gems located in crystal blue seas. From epic adventures to relaxing white-sand beaches, this place has it all, and there’s no better way to experience their beauty than by sailboat or catamaran rental.
Best time to visit
The stunning 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 go there is December through May, which is considered the country’s peak season for tourism. This is because the islands commonly experience hurricanes during 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.
Get your Bahamas yacht charter from Sailo
We offer daily, multi-day, and weekly charters, so there is an option for every traveler. While some travelers like to book a yacht by the day, as an add-on to their trip, many prefer to extend and book a multi-day sailboat or one of our catamaran charters. If you’re interested in a yacht rental by the day, make sure to use our Message the Owner feature on the boat page to coordinate your plans with the owner and explore your options.
In the Bahamas 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 such as a long weekend, or for the traveler who wants to have a vacation on land and sea to explore the islands from both perspectives.
Week-long sailing vacations
Weekly rentals are our favorite ways to explore this yachting paradise as they truly give you more than enough time to get to know the islands by boat charter. In the Bahamas you can choose from numerous weekly itineraries and explore world-famous destinations such as trips from the capital Nassau, the beautiful Abacos, and unforgettable Bimini. No matter where you explore or what adventures you get up to, a weekly rental will give you plenty of options for your Caribbean sailing vacation.
One of the perks of booking a Sailo yacht rental in the Bahamas for one week or more is our option to reserve for free. When you book a weekly rental, you have a 24-hour reservation period during which you can submit the booking, modify, initiate a conversation with the boat representative via Sailo platform, or cancel your reservation, all at no extra cost to you. The flexibility and convenience of reserving for free (not to mention the benefits of getting to explore this amazing getaway for at least a week) is why so many vacationers choose to book a weekly rental on Sailo.
Find the boat that’s right for you
Once you decide how many days you would like to rent a boat for your trip, you can choose from plenty of options to find the one that’s right for you. Sailo offers sailboats, motor yachts, and catamaran charters, so you have more than enough to choose from depending on your party size, vacation preferences, budget, and the things on your must-do list. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or this is your first time sailing, there is a boat charter in the Bahamas for everyone. Choose your rental based on the number of guests, whether you want to hire a skipper or rent bareboat, how far you will be traveling, and the activities you would like to add on, like snorkeling or other water sports.
One week itinerary by boat charter
There are plenty of options for where to start your yacht rental 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 this tropical yachting playground 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 sailboat or catamaran rental in the Bahamas 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.
