Eleuthera Yacht Charter
This two-mile-wide island, which is as thin as a pencil, boasts kilometers of beaches with pink and white sand and turquoise, clear water. This isn’t just sand and water, to be clear. The eastern side of Eleuthera yacht charter Island in the Bahamas is surrounded by tall cliffs where the Atlantic Ocean rushes against the granite. On the peaceful, welcoming island of Eleuthera, where fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and simply relaxing are popular pastimes, of course, this is the most noise you’ll ever hear.
Greek meaning “freedom,” Eleuthera is an appropriate name for a Caribbean island free of tourists, cruise ships, and casinos. Eleuthera moves more slowly than the majority of people are used to. Leave your watch at home, and put your cell and Blackberry in storage. Fortunately for you, the majority won’t apply here.
North Eleuthera and South Eleuthera are the two parts of the island. One of the most popular places is Harbour Island, which is known for its white sand and pink beaches. The Nantucket of the Caribbean is how many people refer to Harbour Island. There are historical sites and history lessons wherever you look, in addition to the beach, of course—all within a tropical paradise.
The 110-mile-long Eleuthera Island is home to a number of charming, hospitable fishing and colonial communities, including Tarpum Bay, Bannerman Town, and Hatchet Bay. The first republic in the “New World” was founded on this island in the Caribbean. The Devil’s Backbone, a shallow and rocky reef that runs along Eleuthera’s northern coast, is home to more natural wrecks than any other island in the Bahamas. More ships have had their bottoms torn off by it than by any other reef in the country.
Few yachts are available for charter on Eleuthera itself; the majority of yacht charters in the Bahamas start in Nassau or the Abacos. In light of this, Eleuthera is a location that is worth a few days of your time on a weekly charter, or even longer if you have the leisure. You might opt for a boat hire in Eleuthera, leaving from Nassau and arriving back there.
Arrive in Nassau and travel to Paradise Island. Enjoy an exotic cocktail and a warm welcome as you settle into your new home and way of life. The world’s largest artificial marine habitat, Atlantis, has a maze-like network of aquariums and swimming areas that you may spend the afternoon exploring.
St. George’s Cay and Spanish Wells After a delightfully fresh tropical breakfast, we take a boat ride over the clear waters to the historic settlement of Spanish Wells on St. George’s Cay. While anchored along the route, you may make use of the upper deck for a leisurely meal and go swimming or snorkeling.
Harbour Island – As we enter Harbour Island through the shallow seas of the Devil’s Backbone, a local pilot directs us just yards from the shore. The island is well known for its vividly-hued homes and elegant white picket fences. It’s a wonderful location to experience the vibrant island culture. If you love to fish or dive, local knowledge of some of the most stunning reefs in the world will guarantee you a catch of the day that can be cooked for supper. Divers can explore an interesting railroad wreck or dive quickly through a current cut while drifting with the tide.
Harbour Island – Colored pink by millions of coral fragments, a wide three mile long sandy beach awaits you for an exciting day of water sports and sunbathing. Whilst enjoying the beach we serve you a spectacular buffet style picnic lunch. Golf carts are the means of transportation around Harbour Island and will allow you to explore the many narrow streets. Take the opportunity to dine at one of the many unique restaurants and experiencing the night life with a little local flare is a must.
Eleuthera – After a great evening of dining and dancing, we sail the glistening shallow seas off Eleuthera’s western coast. On the jet skis and tender, spend the afternoon exploring the shoreline. For those who are more daring, the nearby seas offer a fantastic opportunity to water ski or even snorkel the vibrant coral heads teeming with schools of tropical fish. Atop the top deck, beneath the sparkling, starry sky, you may enjoy an Australian-style barbecue with a touch of elegance while the boat is anchored for the night.
Nassau –On the top deck, lunch is provided while traveling to Nassau. The afternoon is spent lazily strolling the main street and neighborhood craft market in search of last-minute mementos or unwinding in one of Atlantis’ several pools. You can raise a glass in the evening to your upcoming voyage.
We’ll be pleased to assist you in deciding which activities suit your personality and interests the best. Your crew and captain are experts. They are familiar with the locale and the greatest things to do. They can give advice on where to go fishing, diving, or snorkeling. They are aware of the locations of the remotest beaches. They can give advice on the top boutiques, eateries, or nightclubs.
We’ll provide you a food choice survey to fill out so we can figure out what kinds of meals you and your visitors would like to eat while you’re away. Along with your preferences, the form will ask about any dietary requirements, medical restrictions, or food allergies that any members of your party may have. Prior to your departure, you will also get the chance to ask any questions of a crew member. The team will next make your favorite cocktails and fresh, gourmet meals for the rest of the voyage.
Running costs are not included in the rates given for motor yacht charters and must be paid separately. Catamarans for sailing must be all-inclusive. The costs are determined by the number of people and cover all meals, drinks (including the typical ship’s bar), fuel, ice, and aquatic activities. Taxes, dockage fees, and communication expenses must all be paid individually.
Food, alcohol, fuel, dockage, port fees, and any other costs associated with the charter are considered running costs.
Typically, the operating costs represent 35% of the base charter fee. A 35% Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) will be paid in advance of your departure, giving the crew time to stock the yacht. A detailed breakdown of all costs will be provided to you at the conclusion of the charter. If there is still a balance, you will get a refund; however, if expenses are higher than the APA, you will have to pay the outstanding balance before disembarking.
Florida’s tax ranges from 6-7%, depending on the port of embarkation, while the Bahamian tax is 14%. The charter cost also includes tax.
What to anticipate if you have to cancel your vacation is covered in your charter agreement. To protect yourself in the event that unavoidable circumstances force you to cancel your trip, we advise buying cancellation insurance.
A luxury yacht rental is made to meet all of your requirements for the entirety of your journey. The skipper and crew will do everything possible to meet and exceed your expectations. The captain’s first priority, however, is the security of his crew and the boat. He has the last say on anything that could affect the safety of passengers.
Yes. Although not required, leaving a tip is encouraged, especially if your yacht rental experience left you feeling especially satisfied. At the completion of your charter, you should give the captain a 15% gratuity.
Once you’ve decided on a yacht, we’ll place an “option” on it, securing it for 48 hours while you finish the paperwork. Then, a yacht charter agreement must be read and signed. We are happy to answer any queries you may have and thoroughly explain the terms. You must send your completed contract together with a deposit for the charter.
50% of the charter cost is required as a down payment; however, if there are less than 30 days to departure, the whole amount is due. The deposit is made via bank wire transfer and is kept in an escrow account by the principal agent of the yacht until just before the charter date. You have secured the yacht once we get your signed contract and down payment.
We’ll start collaborating with you to customize your charter. Your food and exercise preference survey will be delivered to you. We’ll set up a phone call for you and the crew. We will assist you in planning all charter-related details, including transportation in a limousine and flights.
If you are renting a motor boat, the APA funds and the remaining balance of the charter are due 30 days before the start of your trip.
