Dream Yacht Charter’s Bahamian base is located on Great Abaco Island at Marsh Harbor, and serves as our gateway to the stellar sailing grounds the islands have to offer.
The Abacos chain forms in a boomerang shape that stretches nearly 130 miles – from Walkers Cay in the North to Hole-in-the-Wall in the South. The islands lie roughly 175 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida, and 106 miles north of Nassau.
This Bahamian getaway has a barrier of outer cays and islands, which create naturally protected waters often called the Sea of Abaco. There you’ll find shallow, easy-to-sail waters in shimmering shades of blue: exactly what you expect from a Dream Yacht Charter vacation.
