Abacos Sample Itinerary

DAY 1 Treasure Cay, Great Abaco to Baker’s Bay, Guana IslandBahamas Lundy Charters Treasure Cay Captain Jim Baker sailing scuba abaco
 
You will be greeted by your Lundy Charters Crew at the airport in Great Abaco. Then we will head down to the Treasure Cay Hotel and Resort where we will have lunch and get you settled aboard the yacht. After a brief orientation by the Captain and Crew we will set sail for Baker’s Bay, Great Guana. Miles of virtually deserted white sand beaches over look the sea of Abaco. A sunset sail and supper aboard the yacht will bring our evening to close.  
 
 

Green Turtle Cay Captain Jim Baker Lundy Charters Bahamas AbacoDAY 2 Green Turtle Cay
 
An early morning snorkel and scenic day sail will bring us to Green Turtle Cay. This island is a blend between a New England Seaside village and a pastel Abaconian settlement. Although the island boasts great beaches, deep-sea fishing, and diving; it also offers a number of historical sights. There is a cemetery that is over two hundred years old, a Loyalist Memorial Garden, and the island's original jail.

 

 

DAY 3 Man-O-War CayBahamas Beach Charter yacht lundy charters bareboat
 
The undisputed capital of the Bahamas’ boat-building industry for over two hundred years, this stop is sure to peak the interest of any boating enthusiast.   You can drop in to the boat builders and see some of the boats still being made by hand. This car-less island is dissected by the “Queen’s Highway” which is actually a double wide sidewalk. Most shops on the island focus on supporting the boat building industry. It is certainly a choice destination for anything nautical. (You’ll probably see your captain and crew stocking up while there) We will have supper at the Marina Pavilion, bring cash (no credit cards accepted) and any alcoholic beverages you might want (the island is dry but BYOB is acceptable).

 

Elbow Cay Hopetown Lundy Charters Bahamas Sailing Charter YachtDAY 4 White Sound, Elbow Cay
 
Elbow Cay hosts one of the most protected harbors in the Bahamas and has only one settlement, Hope Town. Captain Jim Baker considers it his favorite stop in all of the Bahamas. The village itself surrounds the harbor and is a pastel version of a 1700’s New England fishing village. The islanders are the most welcoming in all of the Bahamas and have a full gamut of services. The historical museum and lighthouse are popular sights if you can manage to get away from the cold Kalik and beautiful beach on the east side of the island.
 
 

 

DAY 5 Marsh HarbourMarsh Harbour Bahamas BVI Yacht Charter Lundy Charters
 
Surrounded by dozens of small deserted islands, we usually snorkel and island-hop our way into this bustling harbor (third largest in the Bahamas).  Marsh Harbour is also a center for shipbuilding, but its economy relies mostly on tourism. You will be able to enjoy all the amenities of being on the mainland. You might even be lucky enough to be on land during a Junkanoo festival or Emancipation Day celebration. Be sure to challenge your Lundy Charters captain and crew to “the ring game” at the Conch Inn Hotel Bar overlooking the Marina.

DAY 6 Great Guana Cay
 
Great Guana Cay is a little more than seven miles long, and has a spectacular beach that runs the length of the island on the ocean side. The famous Nipper’s Beach Bar and Grill calls this beach home and is the perfect place to spend the afternoon. You can snorkel a reef that is a little more than a hundred feet from shore, take a dip in the freshwater pool, and enjoy great food and drinks. Guests have called this “The best ocean view in the Bahamas”, and we agree.
 


DAY 7 Treasure Cay
 
The Lundy Charters crew will get an early start to the day and have the yacht to Treasure Cay by midmorning. We do this so that you can take full advantage of your last day in the Bahamas. Some guest choose to spend their time before the flight getting in a full round of golf. Others choose to shop. Some even stroll up to the Tipsy Seagull for some drinks, a famous bar and pizzeria. Many of our guests will choose to take a half day deep sea fishing trip to cap off their vacation. This spot could not be more perfect for going after that once in a lifetime blue marlin. By 1988, Treasure Cay had established itself as the #1 spot for catching blue marlin in the Bahamas. In 1996, a 1,030 lb. blue marlin, the second largest ever in the Bahamas, was caught off Treasure Cay.
