Sailboat rentals in The Bahamas with Nautal

On Nautal, you'll find a wide choice of sailboat charters in the Bahamas: you can quickly and safely rent a boat to discover the Bahamas. And for a more relaxing vacation, you can rent your sailboat in the Bahamas with a skipper. The Bahamas is one of the top chartering destinations, with almost 700 caves, islands, and islets, of which only 30 or 40 are inhabited.

Gliding around the Caribbean islands on a sailboat rental is the ultimate way to explore true nature, wildlife, and beauty. The capital, Nassau, is located on the island of New Providence, where we have many charter boats waiting for you! But there are also boats available in other islands and marinas in the Bahamas, like the Abaco Islands, Great Exuma, Andros Island, and the Bimini Islands. Sailboat charters in the Bahamas are easy to organize and plan, not to mention a whole lot of fun.

How much does it cost to rent a sailboat in The Bahamas?

The price of chartering a boat in the Bahamas can vary depending on the length of the charter, the number of people on board, the size of the boat, and the additional services you wish to add to your charter. On average, you can find sailboats for $375 to $800 per day. However, a more luxurious sailboat can cost $1,500 or more per day.

There may be additional fees not included in the rental price, such as skipper fees. You can contact the boat owner directly through Nautal to ask about the price details.

When is the best time to go?

If you're a fan of warm weather and vibrant festivals, the peak season from December to April is the ideal time to go. During these months, temperatures hover around 70 to 80°F, and the sun shines brightly, making it perfect for soaking up the sun on the deck. Plus, you'll have the chance to join in the excitement of events like Junkanoo, a traditional Bahamian street parade filled with music, dance, and colorful costumes.

For those seeking a quieter and more budget-friendly experience, consider visiting during the shoulder seasons of May to June and October to November. The weather remains pleasant, with temperatures averaging around 75 to 85°F. You'll find fewer crowds, which means more secluded anchorages and a chance to truly connect with the serene beauty of the islands. It's an excellent time for snorkeling, diving, and exploring the natural wonders of the Bahamas without the hustle and bustle of peak tourism.

Where to sail to in The Bahamas

The Bahamas is made up of several islands filled with white sand beaches (some are even pink sand beaches!), turquoise waters, and endless sights to discover. Rent a boat and get ready to set sail, dive, and snorkel your way through the Bahamas!

Great Exuma is an absolute gem when it comes to sightseeing and sailing. You will find stunning beaches, friendly iguanas, and those adorable swimming sea pigs! It's like a real-life paradise filled with unique and incredible wonders that'll make your jaw drop.

The Green Turtle Cay is another popular island to visit in the Bahamas. As the name suggests, this island is famous for spotting green turtles at Coco Bay.

Treasure Cay, in the Abaco Islands, is probably one of the most stunning places in the world. The water is an exceptional turquoise and the sand is almost snow-white, glistening in the sun.

Not far away, you'll find a water sports center, as well as a bar/restaurant, where you can enjoy a typical cocktail and some local dishes while admiring the spectacular scenery all around you.

You can pick up your charter boat in the Bahamas at Treasure Cay's nearest port, Harbour View Marina Marsh Harbour. The Mermaid Reef dive spot here is world-famous, and the beaches here are generally quieter.

The Eastern Shore is located at the tip of Grand Abaco Island. Here you'll see the most beautiful houses, which you can also rent and stay in for a night if you feel like spending some time on the mainland. Most of these homes also have their own access to the sea via a private pontoon.

For your taste buds...

Bahamian cuisine is spicy and tangy (lemon, garlic, pepper, curry), with an emphasis on seafood. Grilled fish and stews are local favorites.

Don't leave without sampling the cocktails the Bahamas have to offer, including the Bahama Mama, made with rum and coconut rum, grenadine, lime juice, pineapple, and orange!

Rent with or without a skipper

If you want to enjoy a relaxing stay in the region, you can also rent a boat in the Bahamas with a skipper. This option is ideal if you want to enjoy the authenticity of a sailboat but don't feel experienced enough to maneuver one. Or if you want to enjoy your vacation, you can realy on a skipper's expertise and knowledge of the sailboat and region.

The harbors in The Bahamas

Although around half of our sailboat rentals are based in Nassau, there are many other locations where you can choose to start your boat charter.

Some of these other locations include:

  • Palm Cay Marina
  • Albany Marina
  • Harbour View Marina Marsh Harbour
  • George Town
  • Great Exuma
  • Abaco Island

There are also usually free buoys available, which can help avoid the costly fees of marinas in the north of the Bahamas.

Thanks to the beautifully transparent sea here, anchoring is easy and also means you have no excuse to not see the coral reef! Please remember to respect the wondrous sea life that the Bahamas are blessed with and to anchor carefully.

How to get to your sailboat rental in the Bahamas

The Bahamas has over 20 airports spread across its many islands. Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) in Nassau and Leonard M. Thompson International Airport (MHH) in Marsh Harbour, Great Abaco are both big international airports with direct flights, as well as connections to Miami. From here, you can find even more destination connections.
