Great Guana is home to the famous Nippers Bar, known all over the world for its famous 'hog roast', a local specialty. Great Guana Cay is the perfect place for long walks on the white sand beach. There is something for everyone - snorkeling, swimming, diving (extra charge), beach combing and tanning are all available to you.

Day 5-Wednesday: Man of War – Tahiti Beach – Hope Town
Thanks to the shallow draught of your catamaran, you will be able to land directly on Tahiti Beach and swim in crystal clear waters. Transparent shallow water and incredibly soft sand - could there be a better way to access such a beautiful beach? After lunch, you will sail to Hope Town, one of the most picturesque bays in the Bahamas. Its famous Lighthouse emblazoned with red and white stripes dominates the town. It is one of the last three in the world that still operates with kerosene, it is still in service and used by all sailors in the Bahamas.

There is nothing like having an island all to yourself! Enjoy your evening drinking cocktails and watching the sunset.

Why Caitlin Henney chose Marsh Harbour
With 29 islands, 661 cays and nearly 2,400 islets, The Bahamas is a true sailor's paradise steeped in both history and lore. This is a truly glorious area to experience a By The Cabin Charter and all it has to offer.
Dream Yacht Charter's Bahamian base is located on Great Abaco Island at Marsh Harbor, and serves as our gateway to the stellar sailing grounds of the Bahamas.
On a Dream Yacht Cabin Charter, you'll leave the overload of modern life behind and adopt a more humane pace: one that allows you to follow the rhythms of the sea and tropical trade winds.
We can introduce you to private anchorages and special snorkeling spots that the operators of large cruise ships can only dream of sharing with their passengers. On our crewed catamarans, you will experience a far more intimate vacation and explore unspoiled lagoons, pristine beaches, and reefs teeming with sea life, as well as splendid anchorages and bays.
What makes this boat unique
If you want to travel to destinations like the Bahamas, Seychelles or Mauritius but are concerned you might not be able to manage the boat or just want to go along for the ride, then, book a Dream By The Cabin Vacation aboard one of our large and stable catamarans almost everywhere we have a base. Take a hassle free vacation and enjoy some of the world's most breathtaking scenery worry free, in a totally catered environment.
Perfect for novice or non-sailors wishing to explore exotic destinations as well as experienced sailors who want to relax and be guided. You will follow a fixed route with daily stops that will allow you to explore unique places accessible only from the sea.
Thanks to short sails, you will have the opportunity to relax in the sun on board or indulge in water sports such as swimming, snorkeling and kayaking (all activities are included). You’ll
also be able to go for walks during stopovers and discover more and more about these beautiful and exotic destinations.
Here is how it works. You rent a stateroom or cabin with your own private bathroom, just as you would on a cruise ship. But Instead of a thousand new best friends, you’ll be among just a handful, while our professional crew manages all aspects of the yacht, and a gourmet chef prepares all the meals.
