Why choose Nassau Sailing:
This is by far the most intimate experience in Nassau. You likely are surrounded by large crowds throughout your trip, but when you step aboard you will be in a small group and you can sit back and relax. Your safety is the primary concern of the crew. Our friendly and experienced Bahamian crew are there to ensure your safety and enjoyment is unmatched throughout your time with us.
What if I usually get seasick on a boat:
We understand that not everyone is made out to be a sailor, however the waters in and around Nassau are very protected. Our experience has shown that any queasiness that you may have initially quickly gives way to the excitement of sailing on Nassau Harbor.
We always have the safety of our passengers and crew at heart so if we deem that on the odd occasion that it is too rough to go out, we will cancel. We leave it to the discretion of the captain regarding the weather once we leave the dock.
