When Adventure Calls
Take To The Water
One of the best things about owning a home or vacationing on an island is that you’re surrounded by water. In the case of The Abaco Club, that water just happens to constitute one of the most treasured areas for boating and sailing in the world. The small, offshore barrier islands and cays that surround Great Abaco create the protected Sea of Abaco, making it an ideal location for boating and sailing. The azure waters around Abaco are reputed to host the fourth-largest reef system in the world, stretching for more than 120 miles in all, and are home to innumerable species of spectacular sea life, from dolphins to sea turtles to brightly colored tropical fish. From your Abaco Club home base, you can cruise to Hope Town on Elbow Cay for lunch. Venture to Great Guana Cay for the famous Sunday pig roast at Nipper’s Beach Bar & Grill. Explore the historic village of New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay. Or just stop off on Treasure Cay, or any of the dozens of smaller deserted cays, for a barefoot walk or a private picnic on a beach.
To make your boating adventures even easier and more enjoyable, you can schedule excursions one of the club’s boats: Paradise – a 54-foot luxury motor yacht, perfect for smooth cruises, cocktail hour, and island picnicking; Parrotfish – 33-foot Intrepid Center Console boat, ideal for a day of fishing and snorkeling around the Bahamian waters; and Finnegan’s Wake – 39-foot Contender Center Console boat, also ideal for fishing, snorkeling, and island hopping with slightly larger groups.
