Bahamas sailing holidays December 2021

Escape to the beach paradise of the Bahamas

The Bahamas is made up of roughly 700 islands in the South Atlantic Ocean. This heavenly archipelago is easy to reach with plenty of international and smaller airports.

Lined with endless white beaches, the Bahamas offer the perfect opportunity to escape daily life and reconnect with the beauty of nature.

The Bahamas have almost become our second home. Our skippers are happy to show you sights and experiences that you won't find in any travel brochure. The Bahamas is full of hidden wonders, and we also discover something new every time.

We're not interested in mass tourism, so it's important to us to have only smaller groups on board our yachts. An unforgettable two-week adventure with good company in one of the most beautiful places on Earth awaits you.
