BOATING IN THE BAHAMAS
There is no finer journey than the one that leads you to paradise. Whether you’re planning a quick getaway to Bimini, a cruise along the chain of islands in The Abacos or The Exumas, or a weeklong voyage to Nassau/Paradise Island, the waters of The Bahamas are waiting for you.
Since the mid-195os, Bahamians on various islands in the archipelago have celebrated various significant events with a regatta. These events celebrate the skill of Bahamian boat builders and the sailors that man them. Racing rules require that competing vessels must be Bahamian designed, built, owned, and sailed. There are sometimes restrictions on materials used to preserve the traditions that the events are intended to celebrate.
Official Ports of Entry
Boaters and sailors traveling to The Bahamas can enter the country at numerous ports scattered throughout our islands.
Boaters entering and/or exiting The Bahamas must follow certain protocol, such as filling out forms and registering their vessels.
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.
