Boating Flings/Slips


Boating flings are the Bahamian equivalent of a road trip. A lead boat pilots the way for a caravan of boaters across the Gulf Stream to The Bahamas.

Flings begin on Thursdays. Wednesdays are our Mandatory Captain’s meetings. Trips end on Sundays during June and July. 30-boat limit. Dockage space is on a first-come first-served basis. Minimum boat length for all flings is 22 feet.



Register for one of our exciting boating flings. Remember, spaces fill up quickly!



Call 1-800-32SPORT (7678) for further information.
All flings depart on Thursday & return on Sunday.
Dates are subject to change.

Boating Flings, sponsored by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation, are like road trips but with lots and lots of water…and boats. A lead boat breaks the waves for the caravan of participants and a sweep at the rear of the flotilla ensures that no one gets left behind. Time on island is unstructured to allow freedom to fish, dive, explore or laze in the sun as preferred.
