Upon arrival at the Marsh Harbour Airport, take a short taxi into town on your way to our home base at Harbour View Marina in Marsh Harbour. Arrive early to explore the Marsh Harbour town. Originally the sponging center of the Bahamas before becoming an agriculture hub, Marsh Harbour is now one of the main settlements in the northern islands. The islands include several restaurants and some of the best night life in the Bahamian chain, as well as great shopping for local arts and gifts. Later on that evening we’ll enjoy dinner on the yacht and discuss the week’s agenda.
Day 1 – Saturday: Marsh Harbour
Boarding at 18:00. Dinner and overnight on board in Harbour View Marina.
Day 2 – Sunday: Marsh Harbour – Great Guana Cay
We will gently cruise toward Great Guana Cay where we will drop anchor off a lovely cay in Fishers Bay. Great Guana is the home of the world famous Nippers Bar with its equally famous Sunday hog roast. Set with a backdrop of a beautiful Atlantic long white beach, Great Guana Cay is perfect for
taking long walks and those iconic white sand beach shots that grace the pages of glossy travel magazines. Beach
combing, snorkeling, diving (with extra charge) or just walking along the beach – there is something for everyone.
Day 3 – Monday: Great Guana Cay – Treasure Cay
After lunch we will set off to Treasure Cay which is listed in National Geographic’s Top 10 beaches in the World! The sand is incredible. It also has every convenience one could desire including excellent bars and restaurants as well as tennis, golf, swimming and a few shops.
Day 4 – Tuesday: Treasure Cay – Man O’ War
In the morning we set sail for Man O’ War. Man O’ War is a sleepy, but prosperous and beautifully maintained settlement. The Albury family, famous for their Bahamian work boats, continue to build both small and larger vessels in the town. Snorkeling can be found on the ocean side of the island.
Day 5 – Wednesday: Man O’ War – Tahiti Beach – Hope Town
Because we use shallow draft catamarans you are able to step off the boat and wade through crystal blue waters onto Tahiti Beach. The crystal clear waters are shallow and the sand is very soft – is there a better way to get to such a beautiful beach? After lunch, we sail up to Hope Town, which is one of the most picturesque harbors in the Bahamas. Dominating the town is the well-photographed red and white striped lighthouse, which is one of only three kerosene lighted, manned lighthouses in the world and still in use by sailors in the Bahamas. It also provides amazing panoramic views of your cruising grounds. Hope Town is a charming settlement with a wide selection of shops, restaurants historic museums and homes.
Day 6 – Thursday: Hope Town – South of Abaco
Get up early so we can sail down to the South of Abaco to find our own secluded island. Spend the day laying on the beach or snorkeling the reefs with its abundance of sea life or going down deeper for those who want to dive (with extra charge). There is nothing like having an island all to yourself. Spend your early evening drinking cocktails whilst watching the sunset.
Day 7 – Friday: South of Abaco – Matt Lowe’s Cay – Marsh Harbour
A delicious breakfast and we head back toward Marsh Harbour stopping at Matt Lowe’s Cay. We enjoy swimming in the Sea of Abaco before heading back to our marina for dinner and then perhaps celebrating our fantastic week with the local people whilst listening to local bands nearby.
Day 8 – Saturday : Disembarkation at 9:00
After breakfast it’s time to head home with great memories and anticipation for your next sailing vacation with Dream Yacht Charter and our by the cabin vacations team.
