Bahamas – Exuma Cays
Overview of the Exuma Cays
The string of 365 unspoiled islands and cays Southeast of Nassau referred to as the “Out Islands” and stretch over a 120 mile-long archipelago is Exuma.
These laid back and uncrowded cruising waters is absolutely ideal for island hopping and exploring long stretches of pristine beaches when you charter a private fully crewed sailing or power boat. Just like the Caribbean, we suggest an itinerary and anchorages which we recommend to make your Bahama vacation unforgettable.
With favorable weather year round, these islands have become very popular over recent years and more clients have asked about other destinations. Winter is a little cooler with temperatures ranging between 70-75F September to May and anchorages are generally less crowded, but the aquamarine waters and the deserted beaches provide for a beautiful private breakaway. Summer is warmer and average around 80-85F with the steady tradewinds blowing all day long making sailing a pleasure. Due to the North-South layout of these exotic chain of cays, it makes sailing up and down the Exumas very desirable and there are always protected anchorages.
