Bahamas Sailing Charters

Visit us at Sail Away, Abaco Bahamas

Explore the pristine waters of the Abacos aboard a performance-oriented Catamaran! Experience the cruising lifestyle in these well protected shallow waters, all while staying in the lap of luxury!

Sail Away Catamarans Bahamas Charters

Sail Away Charters start in Little Harbour on Great Abaco Island. This is a great jumping off point to visit the other islands of the Abacos including Elbow Cay, Man-O-War Cay, Great Guana Cay and many more.  These islands are much less crowded compared to other major island destinations – you can enjoy secluded sandy beaches and commune with nature if you wish or wander amongst the small villages where the locals could not be any more friendly and hospitable.

Suggested Itinerary

Obviously, weather and conditions may dictate where you want to go and when.  There are many options to choose from, so make it a vacation you and your crew will never forget!
