Bahamas Marinas

Looking for current advice on marina costs in the Bahamas. Checked the older threads and most are very old. I draw 6'-8" and plan to visit the Bahamas this fall for a couple months. Looking for economical slips for much of the time and will anchor out some too or use moorings.
Any suggestions or links would be appreciated!
Thanks.

Re: Bahamas Marinas

Where in the Bahamas? Costs for marinas in the Abacos fall between $300 a month to thousands of dollars a month.

Re: Bahamas Marinas

Economical and Bahamas are mutually exclusive terms, but there are marinas in the more developed areas in the Bahamas.

Ive been into marinas at: Bimini, Chub Cay, Georgetown, Staniel Cay, Highborne Cay, Clarence Town, Rum Cay, Andros,....but that was many years ago.

Take a look at Active Captain/Navionics, or any Bahamas cruising guide....should be many listed.

Re: Bahamas Marinas

Check Active Captain. With your draft, you are going to have difficulties finding marinas with enough water. Source: I sailed the Exumas Winter before last with a 6'6" draft.
