Charter a yacht to the Bahamas and get away from the mainland with an adventure to Bimini, a chain of small islands situated just west of the Bahamas that are only a three hour boat ride away from Miami and South Beach. Bimini is known for its laid back lifestyle, with its pristine white sand beaches and picturesque nature trails waiting to be explored. For divers and snorkelers, Bimini offers the finest possible experience. Swim up close with dolphins and stingrays, or explore the mysterious remains of a shipwreck. Bimini is also rich in culture and history and is home to many landmarks that can be visited by boat.
One of the most well known is the Bimini Road, an unusual underwater rock formation that dates back centuries and is believed by some to be the remnants of an ancient human-created road. Located near the underwater Bimini Road is what some believe to be Ponce de Leon’s Foundation of Youth. This pool, which locals call the Healing Hole, lies at the end of a network of underground tunnels that pump out cool, fresh water during outgoing tides. Charter a motor yacht with us to explore this beautiful island chain for a vacation you’ll never forget.
We recommend spending at least two days in order to soak in the full atmosphere of the island, as well as staying at Bimini Bay Resort & Marina (www.biminibayresort.com)

MAJOR CAY – PIG ISLAND
The Bahamas is the ‘Official Home of the Swimming Pigs’. Visitors to the islands are happily embracing the unique and special experience of swimming with the pigs on the uninhabited island of Big Major Cay, which is home to these special creatures and affectionately called “Pig Beach”. The swimming pigs join the vast selection of aquatic activities already popular with visitors to The Bahamas, from snorkeling with tropical fish and sea turtles to shark and eel sightings to scuba diving.
The family of pigs, dubbed ‘adorable’ by tourists, locals and media alike, have become incredibly popular. They live freely on the sandy beaches, and after basking in the sun for hours, they swim in the surf. The pigs, though feral, are exceptionally friendly, running from under the shade of the almond trees to greet visitors that bring them treats. They are also fed by the crews of passing yachts and vessels. The swimming pigs are truly a sight to behold and have become so popular that they have inspired a children’s book, “The Secret of Pig’s Island,” by Jennifer R. Nolan, and a song by children’s author Sandra Boynton.
