At one with nature in the Bahamas

Just a short journey from Miami lies the Bahamas. Experienced yacht charter broker Jennifer Saia reveals why they are such a fantastic place to charter a yacht. The Bahamas are, in my opinion, the best calm cruising areas for charter yachts. One of my favorite hidden spots is Compass Cay, a charming island in the middle of the Exuma chain owned by Tucker Rolle, a lifelong resident and conservationist.

The island is named after Tucker’s great grandfather, ‘Old Compass,’ because of his ability to read the stars for navigation. Compass is in the no-take zone of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, so you have the opportunity to interact with a variety of undersea life.

Paint a piece of driftwood as a memoire at the end of Tucker’s dock, swim with the nurse sharks, drink a Khalik… life is good.

Rachel’s Bubble Bath is one of the best swimming holes in the Caribbean. It’s a magical pool of water in which you can wade, with a swirling whirlpool that whisks you off into a quiet lagoon. It’s like your own private Idaho.

A great way to see the Bahamas is to rent a villa on Compass Cay as a home base and explore the Exumas from there. You can only get to Compass via boat, but it is well worth the trip.
