Guide to The Exumas

The Bahamian Playground

Spread over a grand total of around 365 islands, cays and islets there are enough locations here for you to try a new island every day of the year.

Taking your charter around the Exumas will give you the best experience of the Bahamian way of life. Visiting a whole host of different environments throughout the islands, you can really see why the Exumas are such a popular playground for the rich and famous.

The region is famous for its water, which is crystal-clear and as bright blue as a polished gemstone. The tides are gentle, the water is shallow and the cruising grounds are littered with remote islets and sandbars that are primed for exploring. Everywhere you look, you will be met with long swathes and swirls of white sand rising up out of the ocean, and the silky-soft texture means you'll want to walk along the shores for hours enjoying the feeling of sand between your toes. 

Island hopping through the Exuma chain will also allow you to see some rare and exotic creatures, including the stromatolites at Warderick Wells and some friendly nurse sharks at Compass Cay.

If you're looking for incredible diving sites the Exumas do not disappoint. Heading over to one of the most famous dives in the Exumas, Staniel Cay plays host to Thunderball Grotto, which as the name suggests, was featured in the James Bond films. In addition to film sets, the Exumas also have a host of reef dives like the one at Highbourne Cay.

The Exumas is no stranger to A-listers, and regularly pulls in the SuperyachtSet with its abundance of Instagram-worthy attractions and chic eateries. On shore, expect bars which are buzzing with colour, flavour and friendly Caribbean hospitality.

With other experiences including swimming pigs, historical ruins and an abundance of fishing and watersports activities, the Exumas will show you how Bahamians live life to the full. Start planning your tour around the Exumas by viewing all of the crewed superyachts available for Bahamas yacht charters.
