Bahamas yacht charters allow lucky travelers to explore first hand the islands made famous by Hemingway. The Great Man, drawn by landscape lush and the fish big, resided for some time in this secluded, gorgeous part of the world, and finally emerged with "To Have and Have Not." The Bimini area is still considered the big game fishing capitol of the world. Fisherman flock year round to fish on the reefs, in streams, and in the flats of the Bahamas.

Bahamas Yacht Charters: To Have, and Have Yacht

Bahamas yacht charters are an obvious vacation option for those that want to try their hand at this popular sport. Even if you don't have a lot of fishing experience, chances are your yacht charter crew will be happy to teach you. However, if fishing isn't your style, but snorkeling or scuba diving is, the underwater world of the Bahamas offers breakthtaking viewing.

For underwater exploration, the waters around Bimini in particular, are extraordinary beautiful and filled with lush, colorful life. There are black coral reefs and wrecks to explore. There's even a spooky stone formation, now laced with tropical fish, conch and lobster, that some believe to be evidence of the lost city of Atlantis. Also near Bimini, the continental shelf shears away, and drops a dramatic 600 feet, a breathtaking sight underwater.

Bahamas yacht charters allow you to explore all this wonder, and still pull into dock for dancing and dining in popular tropical hotspots. And unlike "organized" tours, you set your schedule day by day, as you feel like it. Lazy days spent fishing, drinking cool beverages, discovering rich underwater mysteries, and then dancing til the sun comes up...Papa Hemingway himself would be pleased.
