The Islands of the Bahamas, off the Florida coast, form an archipelago that extends over 500 miles of the clearest water in the world. The Islands are home to the third longest barrier reef in the world and nearly one quarter of the world’s coral.
The Bahamas are semi-tropical, low-lying Islands, that offer protected sailing behind cays and reefs. In the heart of the Bahamas, the reef-protected oasis known as the Sea of Abaco features mile after mile of sheltered cruising grounds.

Children and adults alike will cherish memories of snorkeling in safe, clean waters with plenty of underwater life to explore.
