New to the Bahamas

Hello everyone. What a great idea this forum is! I just found it today..obviously. I am not only a new captain, but I am new to the Bahamas. Any advise on good places to take my boss? I am on New Providence Island and usually we'll only have 3-4 days to travel.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Christine

New captain? Recent upgrade to the rank of captain from chief or first mate?
Or you mean new to boating and/or sailing?

You're close to the Berry Islands, Abacos, Exumas, and even Eleuthera, but with only 3 or 4 days at a shot ....... Anyway, Inkwell is right - you need a good cruising guide(s) and you will have a blast. These are some of the most spectacular waters in the world.

The Bahamas has a lot of different things to offer. Get a(several) guides and see what he would like to do?

Aloha Captain Christine,
Welcome aboard!! I can't help you a bit with your questions about the Bahamas but I hope all your questions will be answered by others here on the forum.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Bahamas

Hey all. Thanks for the replies. I know the Bahamas are not the best place for such a short period of time..I am a new captain on this 52' sloop and I just want to make the best of the owners' time while he's here.
I think the Exumas are the best bet, especially if he can fly in or out of Highbourne Cay. We'll see.
If anyone has questions about phones here....I can now answer every one..

Cheers,
Christine

Christine...if you are headed to the Exumas for a short stay...2 things spring to mind:
1. Visit the Exumas Land Sea Park
2. Visit Staniel Cay and the Thunderball Grotto
