The Exumas offer the best sailing conditions found anywhere. The long chain of islands just south of Nassau are easily explored in a large catamaran with 3.5 foot draft.
Elizabeth Harbor, Georgetown is a large body of water between Exuma and Stocking island, where you can enjoy a sunset sail. If the wind dies, the twin diesel engines get you to your destination.
Book a day sail today, so when you arrive on Exuma you are all set to board the yacht and cruise off into the sunset. Departure point is in Georgetown, a 15 minute taxi ride south from the airport, code GGT. A small boat will pick you up and bring you out to the cat for the trip. We have three different adventures for you to enjoy.
Maximum capacity: 10 people
Harbour tour: (11:00 to 3:00)

Pickup at Exuma Market's dock behind the supermarket. A unique way to see the harbor without loud engines droning in your ear. Bring your own lunch or eat at the Hamburger beach club where the boat stops for 45 minutes at 12:30. On the rare day there is little or no wind, the boat is powered by twin 27 hp Yanmar diesel engines that produce a low hum. The great thing about sailing on Rubicon is you get to travel in comfort and shade while learning how to sail as well. The cockpit of the vessel can seat 10 people, some no doubt wanting to enjoy the hot sun on the spacious deck area.
Sunset Sail (3:30 to 5:30)

Pickup at Hamburger Beach Club. 10 min. water taxi ride from the Government dock. Call for info. No doubt the prettiest spot in the harbor. It is directly across from Augusta Bay and Palm Bay Resort under the tallest point on the island, the Monument. Ask your taxi driver about it when you arrive and he will point it out to you on your way into George Town. You can't miss it across the harbor, a steep hill with a pointed cement structure atop. A very popular cruise. Bahamas sunsets are breathtaking, you will notice the clean air out here away from mainland big cities providing brilliant colors!

Pickup at Exuma Market's dock behind the supermarket. Come explore Elizabeth harbor while relaxing onboard this comfortable catamaran. Bring your own lunch or eat at the Hamburger Beach Club where there are two amazing beaches, one with breaking surf on the norhern side of Stocking Island, a 5 min walk ,or enjoy the quiet, shallow water on the inside beach right in front of the bar. Then we will be sailing to the other end of the harbor, about an hour's sail. Here there are huge shallow sandbar areas only inches above water. You can also enjoy snorkling.
