Amarok Sailing Charters

Bahamas Sailing Charters

Bahamas sailing is enjoying the crystal clear waters, beautiful white sand beaches, excellent sailing and spectacular snorkeling that only the Bahamas can offer.  Choices of destinations on your cruise can be the Exuma, Eleuthera, and Berry Islands.  With a longer cruise, more remote Outislands can be reached.  Choices of departure ports are Nassau; Staniel Cay, Exuma; and Georgetown, Exuma. Our itinerary is flexible and based on the current weather pattern for your cruise.  We try to play the weather so we can sail as much as possible.  A typical day consists of sailing (usually 3-6 hours) after breakfast to a new location then exploring and snorkeling.  Options are discussed at breakfast and your specific desires discussed.  

The Bahamas Outislands offer:  deserted islands and beaches with no footprints, caves to snorkel in (as featured in "Thunderball 007"), quaint villages with friendly people, shopping in native straw markets, visiting the swimming pigs at Big Major's Spot, trying your luck in the casinos, photographing endangered rock iguanas, seeking the mysterious "blue holes" in the interior of some islands, numerous wrecks to snorkel and trolling for big game fish such as mahi-mahi and tuna.  The AMAROK has also served as a mobile base for flyfishing and bonefishing trips.  There are also many rare and seldom seen migratory ocean birds. Occasionally whales are seen in the deep blue.   

All Bahamas sailing charters are 6 or 13 days long.  Embarkation is at 0830 on Sunday mornings, with a return at 1600 on Friday afternoons.  A 6-day cruise is 6 days and 5 nights.  A 13-day cruise is 13 days and 12 nights.  


What to Bring


Identification for Immigration are passports only.  Soft luggage only please, no suitcases.  Try to limit your gear to one bag per person.  Wardrobe should include:  swimsuit, sunglasses, hat, long-sleeve shirts and pants for sun protection, shorts, jacket or sweater for cool evenings, and old sneakers or swim shoes for beach combing.  Only shoes with non-marking soles are permitted on board.  Most restaurants in the islands allow casual dress.  Other items are suntan lotion, personal snorkeling gear (if you have your own), and toilet articles.  Sheets and towels are provided.  Most of our guests find they have packed too much.  So from experience, pack light.

Breakfast:  Hot bagels, cereals, fresh fruits, coffee, tea, pastry, yoghurt and such creations as lobster omelette.
