We are open!!!!
Effective November 1, 2020 the Bahamian Government requires all visitors to obtain a Health Visa for entry into the Bahamas. This is easily obtained via email and basically entails each guest providing a negative RT-PCT Covid 19 test no more than 7 days prior to your arrival in the Bahamas.
Please keep in mind the entry requirements will fluctuate as further knowledge about the virus is obtained and pertinent safety measures are adopted.
The Great Abaco Beach Resort in Marsh Harbor is home to the Cruise Annapolis Bahamas charter affiliate. We can deliver an amazing island-hopping adventure, from Guana Cay to snorkeling at Foul Cay Underwater Park, simply choose the sites you want to visit and Waypoints will arrange everything else.
Weeklong charters, ASA instructional charters, and bareboat charters are all available, as well as a unique concept of “Captained by Day, Bareboat by Night.” Your Captain is onboard to guide you through the crystal waters by day, stopping to snorkel and enjoy the beautiful beaches, and then leaves you safely moored in a settlement or secluded cove each evening, every night in a different location. This is the best of both worlds of chartering.
Sample Cruise Itinerary
A day sail can be any one of the days below, or just a day of sailing! If you are on a Captained by day charter, your Captain will meet you aboard each morning and depart each afternoon from that day’s destination. Your group will have the evening to enjoy the boat to yourselves. You will have a nice outboard powered dingy for your use each evening. Our captains are either picked up and dropped off each day or take the ferry to come and go at day’s end.
Meet at Great Abaco Beach Resort also known as Boat Harbour Marina. After settling you into your boat, looking at the charts of the area, and getting weather forecasts, we will come up with a cruise plan that fits your wants and the weather perfectly. Then, an afternoon swim or walk on the beach, with the first evening stargazing from the cockpit!
Set sail to Guana Cay and get a mooring or a dock. Then you’re off to the beaches for snorkeling, sunning and swimming, later that day (Sunday) there is a pig roast on the beach at Nippers.
Sail south stopping at Foul Cay Underwater Park, then out to the reef for some snorkeling. An afternoon sail south to Man-O-War Cay and go dockside or take a mooring in the settlement. Spend the next day exploring the sail shop, boat builders, and shops of the Cay, before a swim at the beach. Later on, sail to Hope Town and get a mooring.
A short sail from Man-O-War, you will arrive in Hope Town with plenty of time to explore this charming settlement. Go out to lunch, climb the historic lighthouse, visit the museum and shops, or just hit the beach if that is all you desire. A nice dinner or drinks can be had in town at one of the handful of local restaurants.
Sail south to Tahiti Beach – beachcomb, swim, snorkel and do some fishing before a nice dinner onboard or dingy to a close by restaurant. This is a great anchorage for dingy exploring, kayaking, or paddle boarding. If you’ve never tried stand up paddle boarding this is the perfect spot to give it a go.
Explore further south, snorkel or dive Sandy Cay Park, or explore the artists settlement at Little Harbour and grab lunch at Pete’s Pub. Moor or anchor at Lynard Cay, Tilloo Cay or Tahiti Beach.
Kayak, snorkel and paddle board the crystal-clear waters of Tilloo bank, shelling and sand dollar hunting. Relax and enjoy a late afternoon sail to your departure destination.
Awake relaxed and enjoy a leisurely breakfast prior to your departure at 10am.
