Destination

Marsh Harbour

Welcome to the north of the Bahamas and Marsh Harbour. You are going to board the catamaran for the first time at 6 p.m. Look forward to an exciting time on board in a family atmosphere with exquisite destinations. Enjoy your first dinner on board.

7 nights aboard the Lagoon 620 in a double cabin including full board, Marsh Harbour, Bahamas.

You are going to slowly make your way toward Great Guana Cay. The anchor will be dropped in charming Fishers Bay. In Great Guana you'll find the world-famous Nippers Beach Bar, which offers fresh juices and suckling pig on Sundays with relaxing music in a cozy atmosphere. With long walks on the white sandy beaches, you will surely find ideal photo spots for the first vacation pictures.

You can use the morning to snorkel, swim, relax or take another walk - the tour will proceed only after lunch.

Man-O-War holds an enticing surprise: one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world, according to National Geographic. The island awaits your with exquisite restaurants and bars as well as golf courses. Time will fly by in this wonderful place. But don't worry: Since you will sail on tomorrow, you still have enough time.

Fortified by your meal, it's time to sail to Hope Town. The sleepy yet beautifully preserved settlement invites you to linger. Watch the inhabitants build typical Bahamian work boats. After a 15-minute walk, you are going to reach the north coast of the island, where you can explore the underwater world while snorkeling.

In the morning, sail on to Sandy Cay National Park, easily accessible due to the catamaran's shallow draft. Wade through the crystal clear waters to reach land. The national park serves as an important nesting ground for several species of turtles and birds. Use the time to relax or snorkel before lunch. Then it's time to pull the anchor again and set sail until you reach picturesque Little Harbour, which awaits you with numerous art galleries, restaurants and museums.

Your journey continues in the morning. Today you will reach Tahiti Beach in the south of Abaco. On its own small deserted island, the beach belongs only to you and your fellow travelers. Enjoy the tranquility and take the time to relax or explore the underwater world. Watch the sun disappear behind the ocean during cocktail hour.

The last full day on board is dawning and we are slowly heading back towards the starting point. But before that, a stopover is arranged in Matt Lowes Cay. Once again swim, snorkel and enjoy the time. Enjoy dinner back at the home port. But the day is not over yet: Celebrate the past few days with local music.

After breakfast, you are going to be sent home with wonderful memories in your luggage. An unforgettable time has come to an end.

However, your trip does not have to end here: We will be happy to advise you about possible beach extensions and arrange an extended stay tailored to your wishes.
