Sailing Charters Overview
Our sailing catamaran Ubuntu will be your floating home during your charter with us. We provide the service and environment for an experience of a lifetime — relax and enjoy!
The Bahamas and Bahamians are truly special . . . from crystal clear waters, beautiful marine life, soft white sand beaches sometimes all to yourself . . . to the Bahamians’ friendly and relaxed approach to life. You will leave with an appreciation of what an incredible paradise this is and what island time is all about!
Ubuntu’s cruising grounds vary by season. We charter out of Nassau, New Providence, from December to March. Then we focus on the Sea of Abaco to mid July. The Abaco islands are protected by the 4th largest barrier reef system in the world. Your charter in the Abacos begins and ends in Marsh Harbour, which is in the northern Bahamas.
ISLAND HOPPING ACTIVITIES
Every charter includes daily sailing, reef visits, island and beach exploration, and overnight anchorages with amazing sunrises and sunsets. We have quality snorkeling gear, 2 paddle boards, a kayak for 2-3, and transportation to and from the various islands via our tender. If you wish to ensure a perfect fit for snorkeling, by all means bring your own gear. Don't forget your underwater camera! We will provide hands-on sailing instruction to those interested and assistance with reef snorkeling. We want your experience to be memorable!
Whichever charter you choose, we suggest you have a meal or two ashore to take in the local flavors. We will recommend some wonderful restaurants on the various cays that we sail to.
In addition to the longer term charters we also offer:

- We swam with dolphins, saw a few sharks, ate great food on-board and at the ports, met very interesting people, and most importantly thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. ~ Neil
