Overview

Owner operated charter company offering day sails and multiple day live aboard charters on boats ranging from 30 to 45 feet in length. Boats available for bareboat charter or try our unique "Captain by day, Bareboat by night" option if you lack boating experience. The Captain is with you by day, sailing, exploring, snorkeling and each evening leaves you safely moored , anchored or docked to enjoy the evening to yourself. You have a dingy with outboard to explore on your own and the Captain returns the next morning and off you go to a different destination and adventure. We also offer American sailing Association courses with certified Instructors so you may learn and come back and bareboat next time! Many students return year after year and charter from us. We take your vacation seriously and treat it like it is our own, we strive to make sure everyone has a great time!

We typically charter sailing yachts. I did notice Cruise Abaco now has motor catamarans. Looks like fun for anyone who doesn’t want to sail.
