DESERTED SUGAR SAND BEACHES, SHALLOW REEFS TEEMING WITH COLORFUL UNDERSEA LIFE, AND ENDLESS CRYSTALLINE TURQUOISE WATERS.
Just 45 miles from Miami, the Bahamian island chain begins with Bimini and meanders 500 miles to the southwest, comprising over 700 islands and 2400 cays. Rimmed by one of the world's great barrier reefs, these sheltered waters offer myriad opportunities for relaxed cruising, undersea exploration, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, water sports and plenty of on-land hiking and discovery. Whether you're in the mood for adventure or serenity, The Bahamas caters to every whim. But, to experience the true magnificence of this largely uninhabited area, it is ideal to visit by private yacht.
This winter, indulge in the quintessential Bahamian experience with a charter aboard any of Fleet Miami's private yachts. Ranging in size and style from 31 to 154 feet, these vessels are perfectly suited for shallow water cruising and include plenty of toys to discover the world in and above these spectacular waters. Fleet Miami's personal concierge can work with you to select the best boat and the perfect itinerary to suit your preferences.
The Bahamas' proximity to the U.S. mainland makes this island chain the ideal destination for a weekend or long weekend yacht charter. Those seeking a touch of true Bahamian culture, with a flair that harkens back to its British colonial roots, will enjoy the islands of The Abacos, to the north. Hope Town, on the island of Elbow Cay, offers visitors a quintessentially Bahamian experience, where golf carts are the preferred mode of transport, the locals know one another by name, the breadmaker is a town icon, and an island Tiki bar accessible only by boat provides the perfect tropical island cocktail experience. Restaurants and nightlife are the attraction of the Middle Bahamas and Berry Islands. But for an idyllic retreat, look no further than the Exumas, a small island chain that offers both natural wonders and magnificent luxury.
