The crew will prepare your appetizers on board, with coffee, pastries and fresh fruit in the morning. Lunch is a hearty and delicious feast, prepared over charcoal with generous lashings of our ‘secret recipe’ BBQ sauce.

Rose Island

Set sail from Nassau to Rose Island, just a short trip from the capital. With its beautiful beaches and spectacular corals, you’ll get the chance to dive in from the deck of your yacht charter or head ashore to swim out at your leisure. There is a teeming variety of sea life right below those gentle waves, so make sure to get your snorkeling gear at hand. You don’t even need to worry about bringing your own snorkel. Your crew will bring everything you need to have a great day out with your private sailing trip in Nassau. 

If you prefer to stay on dry land, your crew will ferry you to the beach to enjoy this paradise island vibes at your leisure.

With just 1 hr 30 mins sailing each way, you can be on the serene and beautiful Rose Island and ready to make the most of a day away from the hubbub of the capital. Don’t worry, it’s usually pretty smooth sailing with a Nassau yacht charter to this beautiful island.

Once we reach our destinationf or the day, your crew will make sure you get the most out of your visit and will do their best to accommodate your preferences. Whether you want to explore the island or if you prefer to laze on deck, you call the shots. Rose island is home to a small inland lagoon, a string of gorgeous beaches and several independent resorts and restaurants.


Swimming with the pigs

The famous swimming pigs of the Bahamas can be found on several islands across the archipelago, and Rose Island is the closest place to Nassau to see them. If you want to visit the swimming pigs, let your crew know before you set off on your Bahamas sailing trip. The Rose Island swimming pigs are actually kept by a local resort, so they’re not wild animals.

But if you’re on a Sailo yacht charter from Nassau, why not come and say hello?! 


Snorkelling on Rose Island

If you’ve never been snorkelling before, or if you’re already a fan, then Rose Island is an excellent place to dive in (literally). Swim out from the beach or, if you prefer to dive straight in off the boat then you’ll be able to see plenty of sea life. Keep an eye out for sea turtles, conch and starfish, and plenty of colorful tropical fish.


On average at least 2-3 hours of your sailing trip in the Bahamas will be spent on the beach or in the water (or, both!), so you can make a splash at your leisure. What are you waiting for? The sea is calling your name! Book your Bahamas yacht charter today!
