The Bahamas are situated east of Florida, about one hour's flying time from Miami. Consisting of around 700 islands, they have long been revered for their superb sailing conditions, crystal clear waters and white sand beaches.
The Bahamas offer a holiday of contrasts. From the glitz and casinos around the more developed resorts in New Providence and Grand Bahama, it is just a few miles to the unspoilt islands and cays of the Out Islands. Here, you will find a more traditional Bahamas with a slower pace of life. There are perfect white sand beaches to explore, excellent fishing and sailing and friendly, helpful locals.

Best time to travel
December - March
The best time to travel to the Bahamas is during our winter and spring months of December to March. The islands enjoy an idyllic climate with the temperature seldom dropping below 70 degrees and with most of the rain coming in brief summer showers.
The organisation was superb. We were able to fit so much into each day without feeling hurried.
