​We sail the island chain that stretches out to the east of Nassau and includes gorgeous beaching, fantastic reefs for snorkeling, as well as sailing & cruising through our beautiful turquoise water!

Our daytime cruises & charters come in 3 1/4 hour, 4 1/4 hour and 6 hour lengths, and can also be customized for other cruise durations. The rates within the brackets are our peak season rates, which apply during dates over USA Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year's, and also dates in Feb/March/April.

Here are detailed descriptions of what we offer -

#1 - Rose Island Day Cruise - This is usually from 10am until 4pm with great sailing, beautiful Rose Island beaching and fantastic snorkeling, snacks, drinks and a very tasty freshly grilled BBQ lunch - this is a great day out! The rate for this is $140pp ($160pp), $1,510.00 ($1,710.00) as a private charter aboard our 41' 12 person sailing yacht, and $3,100.00 ($3,640.00) as a private charter aboard our 56' 26 passenger sailing yacht.
Itinerary - The cruise stops for snorkeling and/or beaching for about 2 1/2- 3 hours, and there are about 2 1/2 - 3 hours of actual sailing time. The beach is gorgeous, and is at a secluded location, at nearby Rose Island. With this cruise the snorkeling is at a fantastic reef in a shallow reef location. You can snorkel from the sailboat, in 10-12' of water, or you can snorkel from the beach, so this is good for both experienced and beginner snorkelers. We bring a tender/small boat along as well, so you can also actually ride to the beach and not get wet at all, which is nice if you'd like to bring a towel or camera ashore, or if you can't swim.
Snorkeling - We have lots of great snorkel gear on board which is included. There is also instruction in snorkeling, or refresher pointers, given by the crew upon request. There are swim waist belts (required) on board, and also life jackets are available (upon request).
Snacks, lunch - we include coffee with danish, cakes & pastries in the morning, and fruit & chocolate platters in the afternoon. Our lunch is not catered - it is freshly prepared on board and grilled over charcoal with generous servings of our "secret recipe" BBQ Chicken & Ribs, Bahamian Baked Beans, Captain Randy's Famous Cole Slaw, and fresh dinner rolls from our local bakery, baked that same morning.
Drinks - You are not allowed to bring your own drinks. There are complimentary drinks - unlimited Rum Punch during the sail home, as well as unlimited fruit punch, iced tea, lemonade & bottled water during the entire cruise. In addition to the drinks which are complimentary (as described above) aboard our various cruises, we do have a very affordably priced cash bar. Sodas and juices are $2 and everything else (beers, standard cocktails, wine, Rum Punch) is usually $5-$8. With a private charter, if you have any special requests from the bar, let us know and we will provision accordingly.

#2 - Our 4 1/4 hour Rose Island Half Day Cruise includes snacks, drinks, great sailing, beautiful Rose Island beaching and fantastic snorkeling! The rate for this is $115pp ($130pp), $1,240.00 ($1,450.00) as a private charter aboard our 41' sailing yacht, and $2,540.00 ($2,850.00) as a private charter aboard our 56' sailing yacht.
Itinerary - This usually begins at 9am or 1pm. The cruise stops for snorkeling and beaching for about 1 3/4 hours, and there are about 2 or 2 1/2 hours of actual sailing time. The beach is gorgeous, and is at a secluded location, at nearby Rose Island. With this cruise the snorkeling is at a fantastic reef in a shallow reef location. You can snorkel from the sailboat, in 10-12' of water, or you can snorkel from the beach, so this is good for both experienced and beginner snorkelers. We bring a tender/small
boat along as well, so you can also actually ride to the beach and not get wet at all, which is nice if you'd like to bring a towel or camera ashore, or if you can't swim.
Snacks - we include generous cheese, salami, olive & cracker trays, along with fruit & chocolate snack platters, passed around by the crew several
times during the sail home. You may bring additional snacks and/or boxed lunches with you.
Drinks - You are not allowed to bring your own drinks. There are complimentary drinks - unlimited Rum Punch during the sail home, as well as unlimited fruit punch, iced tea, lemonade & bottled water during the entire cruise. In addition to the drinks which are complimentary (as described above) aboard our various cruises, we do have a very affordably priced cash bar. Sodas and juices are $2 and everything else (beers, standard cocktails, wine, Rum Punch) is usually $5-$8. With a private charter, if you have any special requests from the bar, let us know and we will provision accordingly.

#3 - Our 3 1/4 hour Sailing & Snorkeling Half Day Cruise includes snacks, drinks, great sailing, and fantastic snorkeling! This cruise usually stops for snorkeling for about 1 1/4 hours, and there are about 1 3/4 hours of actual sailing time. The price for this cruise is $90pp ($105pp), or $1,990.00 ($2,300.00) as a private charter aboard our 56' 26 passenger sailing yacht, and it is $970.00 ($1,100.00) as a private charter aboard our 41' 12 passenger sailing yacht.
Itinerary: With this cruise you snorkel directly from the sailboat, in 10-12' of water, so very nice shallow water snorkeling, with the water even somewhat shallower over the coral. This is in an area at the Eastern end of Atholl Island, known as the Sea Gardens. You are actually anchored quite close to shore, to the island, however this is a coral/rocky shore line so there is no beaching on this cruise.
Snacks - we include generous cheese & cracker snack platters, passed around by the crew several times during the sail home. You may bring additional snacks and/or boxed lunches with you.
Drinks - You are not allowed to bring your own drinks. There are complimentary drinks - unlimited Rum Punch during the sail home, as well as unlimited fruit punch, iced tea, lemonade & bottled water during the entire cruise. In addition to the drinks which are complimentary (as described above) aboard our various cruises, we do have a very affordably priced cash bar. Sodas and juices are $2 and everything else (beers, standard cocktails, wine, Rum Punch) is usually $5-$8. With a private charter, if you have any special requests from the bar, let us know and we will provision accordingly.

Options for Customizing Private Charters - We also often do customize the cruises in other ways - for example by
1 - Adding an hour or two to an all day charter, if you would like more time for exploring or snorkeling, or if you'd like to add one or two of the things, below, without reducing your beach stop time.
2 - We can also often change the start time, if something different is needed and/or to work around your schedule.
3 - For smaller groups with daytime hours - 4 1/4 or 6 hour cruises only, or longer -we can often include a turtle encounter where you can watch turtles in quite shallow water, and/or swim and snorkel with them. This is more weather dependent than the other things we do, due to the location of the turtles, but is often something we can include.
4 - Depending on the tide, and the weather, there is a shallow wreck (20-25') we can go to for snorkeling. We recommend this more for stronger swimmers and experienced snorkelers.
5 - Additional water sports may be added on to the 4 or 6 hour cruises. We include snorkeling but we can also arrange a private company to provide - jet skis ($230 per hour per jet ski, parasailing ($120pp - 6 person minimum) and/or banana boat rides ($35pp - 8 person minimum). These activities are brought out to you, privately, at Rose Island.
Note: With a 4 1/4 hour charter, only one of #2, #3 or #4 may be incorporated into the cruise. With a 6 hour charter, two of these options may be included.
Also, keep in mind that adding different stops to your itinerary increases your sailing/cruising time between locations, so it does depend on the wind conditions, however this most likely will decrease the amount of time you can actually spend sailing, with more time motoring required.

    Eryn was excellent with our communication and plans leading up to this trip - quickly responsive and very helpful, accommodating for lunch options for our vegetarian friends.
    Skipper Travis, Jordan, and Roger were all very friendly and helpful - they helped us feel at home and we had a wonderful day. Unfortunately the wind didn't cooperate with us, but we had a great time snorkeling, enjoyed the beaches, and a lovely day out on the water. And the food was fantastic!

    The day trip was amazing as were the crew. Our party of four was upgraded from a 41’ sailboat to a larger one with no extra cost. The sail to the private island was the best for snorkeling and hanging out on the beach, followed by lunch more relaxing and a long sail back to the marina. Lunch was delicious and that Cole slaw recipe is a must share!! The trip was a birthday present for my husband who could not have been more pleased. Thank you again for the wonderful experience.

    Sincerely,
    Crystal & Ron Bauer

    I was beyond pleased with the day charter on this Morgan! The owner was quick to respond to my questions, the boat was in great condition and obviously well maintained. They surprised us by offering pick up from the hotel as well as returning us.
    The crew knew what they were doing both in regards to sailing/handling the boat as well as related to serving us breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. The crew was friendly, happy to answer questions, and had several suggestions which we could choose from in terms of snorkeling and enjoying the beach for a while.
    I recommend them highly and if I return to Nassau I will definitely book a trip with them again.
