CORAL HARBOUR / NASSAU AREA
DAY 1: CORAL HARBOUR / NASSAU / WEST BAY
Fly in to Nassau International Airport. A short 10 minute taxi brings you to your yacht, SOLSTICE, at a private dock. Cast off for nearby Southwest Reef, a premiere area for snorkeling and scuba diving. Explore beautiful reefs, walls, and wrecks that have been made famous in movies for years. Anchor in West Bay, a large peaceful anchorage for the evening. Relax with dinner al fresco while watching the setting sun. Enjoy the stars in the distance as you sip after-dinner drinks on your private yacht.
2: ROSE ISLAND
Enjoy a morning swim, kayak to the beach for a breakfast picnic, or participate in a Resort Scuba Course led by Captain Cliff. Sail around the island past Nassau Harbour, fishing along the way. The historic lighthouse at the harbour entrance welcomes us to this side of the island. Continue East to Rose Island, a wonderful place to escape for that "out-island" feeling, with many opportunities for adventures and relaxation. A beautiful beach and fantastic reef make this anchorage a great spot for us to spend the evening. In the afternoon, you can choose to take Solstice for a sail, go fishing, explore several nearby dive sites, or just stay put and relax in this beautiful anchorage. Sail on to Green Cay, a different evening anchorage.
DAY 3: GREEN CAY / PARADISE ISLAND
After enjoying breakfast al fresco, we'll sail on to nearby Green Cay. The deserted beaches and beautiful crystalline water will keep you both relaxed and inspired. Today's adventure options include more snorkeling, diving, kayaking, fishing, and beach combing. You may not see any other people or boats here, and the only beach footprints are often your own! Spend your last night anchored in solitude here, or sail back to Nassau in the late afternoon, and visit Paradise Island. Hit happy hour at a pub, enjoy nightlife at the various resorts and casinos, or simply stroll through magical aquariums or charming shopping and café areas.
4: CORAL HARBOUR / NASSAU
Enjoy a final breakfast aboard, disembark the same hour you boarded, and fly home! Realize that in just a few short days, you've had an experience of a lifetime!
