This is an example itinerary suggested by the BeBlue skippers who are experts in the navigation area. The route can be planned on the needs of the group before departure or during navigation.
Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 5 p.m. at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you can take your seat in the cabins and board the galley before enjoy some relaxation in the beach clubs and numerous pools. In the evening you have the chance to enjoy a delicious dinner at one of the many restaurants at the yacht club.
The next morning, after breakfast, ditch your moorings to make your way southeast to Highbourne Cay where the water is always crystal clear and you can snorkel at one of the most beautiful locations in this atoll. You can explore Allen's Cay and see the iguanas that populate this area. We recommend an afternoon of relaxing at the beach and enjoying an anchor dinner at the colourful sunset lights at Highbourne Cay where you will spend the night.
After breakfast, and a toning dip, sail up to Warderick Wells Cay; we recommend taking advantage of the opportunity to go fishing on the high seas or let yourself be lulled by the gentle rocking of the waves. Once you arrive, visit Exumas Land and Sea Park and explore the island along its verdant paths surrounded by lush nature. You can visit more than 30 beaches of fine and brilliant sand that surround the island or snorkel to admire the beautiful corals and colorful fish. We suggest you get to the top of Boo Boo to enjoy a wonderful view at sunset, before returning to the board for dinner.
Sail to Staniel Cay: the Big Major Spot beach populated by the famous "swimming pigs" is a must. Legend has it that the pigs were brought there by some sailors with the intention of eating them after sailing on other islands; the sailors never returned and the pigs survived to become the local fauna. We recommend a snorkeling session in the mystical Thunderball cave, which has become famous thanks to the James Bond film and thanks to its natural features: the stalacted that surround its open vault. In the afternoon visit the picturesque village of Staniel Cay and enjoy a drink in one of the yacht club's many bars in the evening.
Today sail to Shroud Cay where you can explore the mangrove river by climbing back in a dinghy or kayak and swim in the enchanting lagoon of this paradise. The characteristic of the landscape of this uninhabited archipelago is its ability to change depending on the winds and waves of the sea, creating a scenario that is always new and different with each passing year.
After breakfast set sail for a short voyage to Norman's Cay where you can swim and snorkel around the picturesque wreckage of a sunken plane. In the afternoon we recommend visiting the ruins of the 80s drug-smuggling den or fishing for fish and lobsters with a Hawaiian slingshot on the coral banks or spending time walking on the white-sand beach. You will be able to fully immerse yourself in the local lifestyle and leave stress and thoughts behind.
After breakfast leave the fonda to sail to the port of departure: Palm Cay in Nassau. In the afternoon you have the opportunity to enjoy all the 5-star services of the island. Return to the Marina at 6 p.m. with overnight stay in the port included. and the opportunity to spend the evening on Paradise Island at the Atlantis hotel with aquariums, casinos and many restaurants.
Day 8: Check-out
Disembarkation is scheduled after breakfast at 09:00 on Saturday.
The itinerary might be subject to variations due to weather conditions, safety and technical evaluations of the Captain of the boat. This programming is intended as indicative and non-binding.
|Da non perdere||
Un missable a stop to Pig Beach in Staniel Cay. You will see a scenery that cannot be found elsewhere: wild pigs swimming in the crystal clear waters and socializing with tourists. Fun guaranteed!
One of the most picturesque islands in the Bahamas is Shroud Cay, an uninhabited archipelago with wild and rocky beaches. Inside the island you can find a mangrove forest, which can only be visited by navigating the river that crosses it. A different and original show that has nothing to do with postcard Bahamas!
