Old Bahama Bay
West End, Grand Bahama Island
Located just 55 miles from Palm Beach, Florida, Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour is the perfect pit stop for boaters. The 72-slip full-service marina provides on-site customs and immigration and lighted markers for night navigation. At the tranquil beachfront resort, you can refuel, re-provision and enjoy a night – or several – in the spacious, luxury suites. Spend your days shore-side relaxing in the infinity pool, or get your adrenaline fix on a shark dive, paddleboarding, sailing or snorkelling.
Bitter End Yacht Club
British Virgin Islands
With the sheltered waters of Virgin Gorda’s North Sound on its doorstep, the Bitter End Yacht Club is the ultimate playground for watersports enthusiasts. Visiting yachtsmen are welcome to dock at the recently upgraded marina and enjoy the resort’s shore-based facilities, or step ashore and stay in the beachfront cottages where there is a dizzying array of water toys to play with, as well as hiking trails, scuba diving, a spa and fine dining.
British Virgin Islands
When you have over 60 islands and cays to choose from, picking a destination within BVI can be tough. A luxury crewed yacht charter allows you the freedom to cruise around the bays and anchorages, stopping at beach bars and snorkel spots, diving and fishing, without a care in the world. The professional captain and crew attend to your every whim, lavishing you with gourmet meals and attentive service, while you relax and revel in privacy, comfort and ever-changing views. Celebrating over 40 years sailing the Caribbean, The Moorings know how to craft the trip of a lifetime.
Tucked away between rainforest-clad mountains, Marigot Bay is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. Equipped with every conceivable amenity, the boutique Capella Marigot Bay Hotel offers contemporary luxury from its vantage point above the exclusive Marigot Bay marina. Combine your hotel stay with exploring the southern Caribbean by boat, or simply take advantage of the complimentary ferry service to cruise around the bay visiting the marina village’s boutiques, bars and restaurants.
