Exumas Yacht Charter
The Exumas Islands are located within the greater Bahamas Island chain of the Caribbean Sea. An Exumas yacht charter vacation is about natural beauty and untouched isolated ecology. The Islands stretch over 100 miles and are made up of 365 Cays and they remain reasonably untouched by man. They are one of the most pristine yacht charter cruising grounds in the world for luxury yachts, both motor and sailing, and are certainly one of the best in the Caribbean.
The Exumas are the site of the world’s first marine replenishment nursery established in 1958. The Exumas Land and Sea Park is 175 square miles and the host dozens of superb reef sites. The area has outstanding anchorages and even more outstanding dive sites making it a superb choice for a charter vacation.
With a population of just 3,540 people most of the islands within the Exumas chain are actually uninhabited (apart from the sunbathing Iguanas). This stunning chain of islands is surrounded by crystal clear waters, shallow sandy shoals and spectacular reefs teeming with wildlife. A lot of the islands have beautiful white sand beaches. Whilst there are not any bareboats to rent in the Exumas there are a bunch of luxury Crewed Sailing Yachts and Power Yachts available and a crewed charter is a magnificent way of seeing this beautiful and remote destination.
On a luxury yacht charter you can visit the 400ft deep blue hole on the Atlantic side of the chain and see what is said to be one of the only living intertidal Stromatolite reefs in the world, a living fossil dating back three and a half million years. Also, you can see the Grotto on Staniel Cay made famous by the James Bond movies Thunderball and Never Say Never again.
An Exumas yacht charter can be reached by flying into Nassau in the Bahamas. Embarkation is easiest here and you will be at the Northern most Cay of the Exumas just a couple of hours after departing from Nassau. The main administrative centre of the chain is Georgetown on Great Exuma at the southern end of the chain.
The Exumas are best known for their crystal clear waters which are perfect for snorkeling, diving, kayaking and sailing. The area is also well know for Bonefishing and guided trips can be arranged
by your personal crew or your CharterWorld Consultant.
