Sample Highlights of Your Trip
Awesome visibility and a vibrant underwater ecosystem.
Erick has dived in these waters for over 30 years and will happily share his knowledge with you!
Bahamians are some of the friendliest folks on the planet. Want to visit a local settlement? Enjoy local fare? We'll show you the right spots!
Soft, white sand and crystal clear water lends to endless opportunities for beach walks and combing.
Best part about it -- you'll most likely have the beach to yourself!
Hannah and Erick take joy in cooking, and strive to create fulfilling meals onboard! We focus on sourcing local foods, with an emphasis on freshly-caught seafood.
The Exuma Cays offer protection from prevailing Easterlies, which allows us to sail almost every day. Protected water and steady breezes make for delightful sailing.
For the animal lovers out there, we will introduce you to the swimming pigs and endemic iguanas that exist only on certain islands in the Exumas.
