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.
