There's no better way to get lost in paradise than our Eleuthera and Harbour Island Adventure. The Eleutheras are a long, thin strip of tropical beauty that stretch 110 miles. Flanked by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and shallower Great Bahama Bank on the west, the Eleutheras are famous for vast pink sand beaches. At the northern end of the archipelago, you'll find the casual urban elegance of Harbour Island.
The islands are named for the Eleutherian Adventurers, a group of Puritan colonists who settled there in 1648. Derived from the Greek word for "free", Eleuthera was the central hub of the Bahamas in the early colonial period, with Harbour Island serving as the capital. English loyalists bolstered the population after the American Revolution and brought with them the architecture and customs of New England.
Bahamian history is still on display in Harbour Island, Spanish Wells, and the remaining pineapple fields that once dominated the Eleutheras economy. The 12,000 residents of the present-day Eleutheras blend with a natural landscape that includes miles of empty beaches, picturesque bluffs, and lush wetlands. The local flora is showcased in the Leon Levy Native Plant Reserve, which includes an educational center.
With so many spectacular sites to sample, your biggest challenge will be narrowing down your options. Whatever you choose, our crew is ready to help you enjoy your favorites water activities. If snorkeling is your passion, we have the gear and guides available, along with an underwater camera. For deep-sea fishing, there are two rods aboard. There are also kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, and wakeboards.
Make sure you leave plenty of time for unhurried island-hopping and private beach parties. Each evening offers a protected anchorage at a new location, and another opportunity to enjoy a sundowner and the fresh catch of the day.
Although we're happy to provide a suggested itinerary, the decision belongs to you. We invite you to learn more about the many attractions of the Eleuthera Islands
and Harbour Island
. Set the course and we'll do the rest.
When you book your tour with us, you can be assured that you are reserving directly with the operator of your excursion, not with a distant reseller. You'll receive the personalized attention that comes naturally from a two-person crew with many years of experience on the water.
Likewise, our Lagoon 560 catamarans were built with luxury in mind, with well-appointed cabins, private bathrooms, showers, ample seating, panoramic windows, and first-rate entertainment systems. (Separate quarters for the crew members are located in the forepeaks of the boat.) You and your guests have easy access to the water from two step-off platforms built into the stern of the boat. A dinghy with an outboard motor is available for shore excursions. There is also a deck shower and BBQ.
We are fortunate to have a seasoned chef aboard who specializes in international cuisine. You can look forward to meals that are not only delicious, but presented with a natural beauty and elegance to match your surroundings. Snacks, featuring local fresh fruit, are always available for our guests, as well as a full range of beverages. We're also happy to customize menus for vegetarian and gluten-free meals, and accommodate other special requests.
