Situated to the east of Florida and to the north of Cuba, the islands form an archipelago that covers over five hundred miles of crystal clear water. A haven for sailors, this paradisiac part of the world is ideal for boat charter with Nautal.

The weather is warm, the gentle trade winds and line-of-sight navigation make The Abacos Islands a great destination for novice sailors and families to sail. Or there is always the option of having a skipper, allowing guests to relax whilst being taken to the best spots not to be missed.

The Abacos Islands are great a destination to rent a boat for either a half day, full day or week charter. Another factor to take into consideration is what type of boat to choose. A speedy motorboat is a great option to visit several places in a short amount of time and can provide a thrilling experience. However, there is just something really special about gliding along the sparkling water with a sailboat. Depending on the length of the charter, budget and size of the crew Nautal can guide you in finding the perfect charter boat at the best price to enjoy the ultimate holiday.

If diving is your thing then the Abacos Islands really are the ultimate destination for you to begin your adventure. There are several sites here to experience breathtaking underwater life first hand including; Pelican Cays Land and The Sea Park. Within these locations you will discover underwater caves and and colourfulest coral reefs you ever did see.

Compared to their better known neighbours Eleuthera, Exuma and Nassau, the Abacos and islands surrounding them remained largely unexplored until the late 18th century. The great thing about these islands is that they are all similar yet different. If your charter is for more than a day be sure to moor up at the beautiful Elbow Cay. If there isn’t enough space there, then don’t worry, Marsh Harbour is close by with frequent water taxis coming and going between the two. Upon arrival you will instantly notice the picturesque village of white and pastel-coloured clapboard houses, as if Santorini had suddenly been teleported to another continent.

You may have already heard about the famous Treasure Cay. It’s notorious for being frequently voted for having the most beautiful beaches in the whole world making it a solid bucket list destination. You can spend hours or even days here enjoying pure tranquility. Other must see spots in The Abacos Islands are; Man-O-War Cay, Gilliam Bay, Coco Bay and Green Turtle Cay.

Throughout your time in The Bahamas it’s safe to say you should keep your expectations high and let them be exceeded upon tasting these islands’ scrumptious seafood dishes, spicy flavours and fruity cocktails. Grilled fish, lobster and stews are all frequent dishes on the menus here, seasoned with favourite flavours such as lemon, garlic, curry and pepper. A mollusc dish called ‘the conch’ is a must-try and is cooked in different ways, too.

Dare we mention how wonderful the cocktails in the Bahamas are? Our go-to sweet treat is the Bahama Mama: a rum, coconut rum, pineapple, orange, lime juice and grenadine wonder which pleases all!

Arriving in the Bahamas is easier than you think! Leonard M. Thompson International Airport (MHH) in Great Abaco and Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in New Providence (Nassau) are the largest airports in the Bahamas, with direct flights, as well as connections to Miami Airport. There are over 20 airports in the Bahamas, so finding a connection shouldn’t be too tricky!
