I usually check in at Bimini.
We reward ourselves for actually going someplace with a night at the Big Game
Club Marina, which is where Customs is located, and Immigration is right down the street. Or the other way around, I don't remember.
I've also checked in at Cat Cay and Chub Cay, both of which are nice but expensive.
I typically stop in Nassau on the way south for fuel
, provisions, etc. and usually stay at Nassau Harbor Club or sometimes Yacht Haven. I've also stayed at Hurricane
Hole Marina and at Atlantis. Everything in Nassau is expensive.
Bahamas C&I will come to your boat at both Nassau Harbor Club and Yacht Haven, and probably the other marinas
in Nassau. That is for clearing in purposes, not extensions.
Nassau Harbor Club is convenient to a good grocery store, drugstore, booze store, and even a Starbucks complete with wi-fi. And a Dominos Pizza lol.
Yacht Haven is convenient to the Poop Deck
restaurant/bar. Yacht Haven gets my award
for lowest water
pressure in the showers I've ever seen.
supplies/parts are in between the two (1/2 a mile from Nassau Harbor Club to Yacht Haven?)
It's all worth while when you get to Shroud
Cay, drop the hook, and decompress.
Have a great time.
