Sail along the southern coast of Grand Bahama, enjoying spectacular tropical views and perhaps stopping along a coral reef to swim and snorkel.
After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief drive across Freeport to the Flamingo Bay Hotel and Marina, which overlooks Bell Channel Bay on the southern shore of Grand Bahama. Here you will board a sleek 50-foot sailboat and head into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Sit back, settle in and enjoy the experience. Before long, you will be skirting past Taino Beach, a palm-dotted stretch of sand lined with exclusive resorts. The views will be wonderful in every direction, as the sea is always stunningly beautiful in the tropics.
If the weather and conditions are agreeable, the captain will anchor at one of the many ideal spots for swimming and snorkeling. Marine life thrives in the Bahamas’ crystal-clear waters. You might spot four-eyed butterfly fish, blue parrotfish and yellowtail snapper. Sea turtles are also abundant and the sight of a loggerhead gracefully swimming by is unforgettable.
Later you will enjoy a sumptuous buffet. Although the menu varies, it usually includes traditional Bahamian dishes, garden-fresh salads and seasonal fruits. Seafood is always a favorite so you should expect to find a local grilled fish such as snapper on the menu. After dining, feel free to relax on the deck and watch the world go by as you return to the pier.
