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!

The Jib Room
The Jib Room

Upon arrival in Marsh Harbour airport where your taxi will be waiting, head to Maxwells Grocery to provision for your trip if needed. The Jib Room Restaurant located at the marina is more than happy to welcome you with a cold beverage and satisfying meal! Wednesday and Saturday evenings you will find dinner specials with live music. A short walk from the marina is a small beach and Mermaid Reef where you can spend time swimming amongst the tropical fish.

catamaran in blue watersSet sail north to Green Turtle Cay where there are beautiful, secluded beaches and surrounding cays that have long stretches of natural, white sand where you’re likely to have the entire beach to yourself. You can reach Gillam Bay, Ocean Beach, Bita Bay and many other beaches on Green Turtle Cay by golf cart and/or boat. Don’t miss other Cays like Manjack (where the stingrays and turtles come out to play), “No Name, where the swimming pigs swim, “Fiddle Cay,” where the famed “Cheeseburger in Paradise” event takes place annually.

Nippers Bahamas
Nipper's Beach Bar & Grill (Facebook)

Set sail for Treasure Cay and grab a mooring ball to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the Bahamas OR sail off to Great Guana Cay and anchor off of Fisher Bay or Great Cay Harbour.  Guana is home to two legendary tiki bar/restaurants - Nippers and Grabbers.  Enjoy a meal or take a dip in their pools or dive the third largest reef in the world just off the beach at Nippers.

Elbow Reef Lighthouse (bahamas.com)

Upon leaving either of the chosen destinations above, make way to either the protected waters of Man-O-War Cay to wander their quaint, quiet village OR head for Elbow Cay where you can grab a mooring ball in Hope Town Harbour or anchor off the cay to dinghy in for your days activities.  Explore the historic light house and harbour shops and restaurants. If you need fuel, gas, water, ice, or provisions you can find it all in the harbour area. Consider renting a golf cart to see the entire island where you can explore the beaches or visit some of our favorite spots like Firefly, Abaco Inn, or On Da Beach!

tahiti beach
Tahiti Beach (bahamas.com)

Anchor off of famous Tahiti Beach at the South end of Elbow Cay or anchor off of Tilloo or Lubbers Quarter Cay.  Dinghy in to have a cold drink or meal at Lubber’s Landing or spend the day swimming or sunbathing at the beach. 

Pete's Pub Bahamas
Pete's Pub

Head to historical Little Harbor, where you can take a short dinghy ride in from your mooring ball or anchorage and visit Pete’s Pub to unwind, grab a drink and a fresh catch meal.  While you are there, take time to wander the grounds and see the bronze statues made there at the foundry, visit the gallery, and head to the beach on the ocean side to collect shells, or swim in the shallow sandy waters of the harbour. Take a short hike to the old lighthouse ruins and if there is a big ocean swell running, walk down to the cliff where you'll find a blowhole known as the Dragon. 

 Leave plenty of time to return to the charter base to check out at the assigned time. Have one last visit to Jib Room Restaurant before departing for the airport.

Getting Here

The fleet of boats are located in Marsh Harbor, Abacos at the Marsh Harbor Marina/Jib Room Restaurant. It’s about a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport to the marina.
