Experience

The Exumas

 

Experience all that The Exumas has to offer as we take you to some of the popular locations as well as some of the not so popular stops.

The cay is inhabitated with iguanas and other wildlife which make it great for snorkeling. Or you can take a hike through the large rocks and get a picturesque view of the sea.

See swimming pigs (don’t worry they are domesticated) on Major Spot’s Cay. Visit the isolated Bahamian National Park, Allans Cay, only reachable by boat!

les-iles-exumasOther island stops on The Exumas yacht charter include Warderick Wells, the hub of recreation and relaxation on the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. Highbourne Cay offers eight beaches all within walking distance of the marina. Highbourne’s East beach is renowned world-wide for its beauty and is ranked as one of the best beaches in the Bahamas.

 

Sample Itinerary:

relicJust as a sneak peak, one day on the yacht consists of waking up to the delicious smell of breakfast. After a morning swim or spending time on a stand up paddle board, we hoist the sails for a relaxing trip to Norman Cay. Norman Cay is very unique in its history as it once was owned by Carlos Lehder, a known leader of a drug cartel who used the island for smuggling.

Fun fact: it was featured in the 2001 movie, “Blow” starring Johnny Depp. It is here where you can see the scene of a plane crash and take a look for yourself what lies beneath the sea…

 

After lunch, we make a short sail to Shroud Cay. Shroud Cay is a slow paced, uninhabited cay owned by Exuma Park. It is a slow paced cay due to the shallowness of the water and in respect for the abundance of plant and wildlife. There is also a short river ride we will take by dinghy where there is an exotic opening to the sea at the other end!

The Exumas all-inclusive package is the perfect opportunity to escape the winter blues with family or friends.

Sea of Cortez, Baja California – Mexico

24330031Mexico combines stunning desert vistas with perfect sailing in the Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California. The famous French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once defined the waters of this region “the world’s aquarium,” and “the Galapagos of North America,” because of the wide variety of undersea marine life found in these calm bays and unspoiled offshore islands.

A fleet of 5 catamarans and 1 monohull sailboat lies at the exclusive Costa Baja resort in La Paz, in a top-class marina with dive shop, supermarket, restaurants, a fine golf course and a beach club.

La Paz means “peace” in Spanish, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in this laid back coastal city that lies at 24 degrees 8 minutes north latitude and 110 degrees 18 minutes west longitude.

119041Although it is the region’s commercial and political center, La Paz remains a relaxed, easy-to-love port with a provincial atmosphere. Set amid ancient laurel trees and coconut and date palms, La Paz is surrounded by ochre colored desert.22735122

Streets radiate from the city’s northwest facing waterfront, the Paseo Alvaro Obregon. Running parallel to Paseo Obregon is the city’s stunning malecon, or waterfront promenade. Several blocks inland is the city’s main square, which features a pink quartz gazebo, tiled walkways and 19th century cathedral.

The city also features an assortment of resort hotels, golf courses, fine restaurants, as well as museums and restored colonial-era buildings.
