    Stephen chartered in Abaco in March 2005Review written on March 2, 2008 Abaco SB2K4

    Excellent destination for an introduction to chartering a sailboat. Abaco is known for easy line-of-site navigation, shallow waters, white sandy beaches and turquoise water. Abaco is not highly developed so expect a relaxing trip with the usual tropical paradise attractions of snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, floating, eating, and drinking!



    I highly recommend the Nipper's Bar Sunday Bar-B-Q, catching the Gully Roosters (the reggae band of the Caribbean), the beaches of Treasure Cay, Kalik (the beer of the Bahamas), and Captain Jack's restaurant and bar in Hope Town.

    Brett chartered in Abaco in March 2005Review written on February 28, 2008 Depends what you're looking for

    Going as a group of 12 college students on our spring break, we were probably looking for something completely different than the rest of the sailors in the Bahamas at the time. That said, we weren't disappointed with what we encountered as we ended up with a spring break different from the norm, full of memorable adventures. Not sure how the weather normally is in March, but we were hoping for (and packed for) warm weather. A couple of days saw heavy cloud cover and a sprinkle here and there. When the sun was out though, conditions couldn't have been better. We were able to get some spear-fishing, regular fishing, and snorkeling in, with great sites including tropical fish and a sea turtle. Once ashore, we spent a good amount of time inhabiting the local bars. To get the complaints out of the way, beer was incredibly overpriced ($35+ for a case of local Kalik) and the locals weren't all that friendly, and that was decided before we got stuck into the beers and became a reason for them to dislike us! Other than that, the rum was cheaper than water, the bars all had their own appeal, and each night was more fun than the previous one. Not a whole lot to do on land, but when college kids can rent out golf carts, you really don't need much more to preoccupy us! All in all a good stay. I'd go back, but not before checking out somewhere new.

    Matt chartered in Abaco in March 2005Review written on December 28, 2007 Beautiful blue water, a few good attractions

    Overall a great destination. Beautiful place with the brightest blue water I've ever seen. Good: Nipper's Sunday pig roast, Treasure Cay beach, lobster fishing, Hopetown lighthouse, Key Lime pie from Vernon's. Bad: few moorings, quieter crowd (not filled with partygoers like BVI), okay snorkeling but have seen better, colder weather in spring subject to cold fronts coming off North America, shallow cruising grounds make you constantly worry about running aground.
