Flying Cloud Special Cruise
Duration: Half Day
The only thing better than being in the Bahamas, is actually enjoying an afternoon sailing around this beautiful archipelago. Made up of 700 islands and over 2000 cays, the Bahamas’ sub-tropical climate, miles of powdery white sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise waters attract thousands of tourists to this part of the Caribbean every year.
This exhilarating Flying Cloud cruise will take you sailing off the coast of Paradise Island and past surrounding Out Islands. Feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face as you glide through the Atlantic Ocean at high speed, hearing nothing but the splash of the waves and the wind in the sails of the luxury 57-foot catamaran that you will be travelling on. Sit back and relax as the friendly crew do all the work and ensure that your trip is as fun and enjoyable as possible. A holiday in the Bahamas doesn’t get much better than this.
You will spend either a morning or an afternoon sailing out to a beautiful secluded beach where you can swim and snorkel in the warm, crystal clear sea at your leisure. Free snorkelling gear is provided, as well as professional lessons if needed. While the boat is anchored, cool off with refreshing tropical drinks, including complimentary Bahamian rum punch.
Visit the beautiful, uninhabited Rose Island, famous for its stunning white sandy beach and spectacular coral reefs. Choose an activity whilst you are there, such as snorkeling, exploring the island, sunbathing on the beach or playing volley-ball and other beach games. If you decide to go snorkelling, you will see an abundance of brightly-coloured tropical fish here, swimming alongside you and darting in and out of the lush coral reef. Blue-green parrot fish, yellowtail snapper, vibrant blue tangs, sergeant majors and Nassau groupers are just some of the species found in these tropical waters, accompanied by many other marine creatures such as eagle rays, moray eels, sting rays, octopus, starfish and possibly even sea turtles. The vivid colours of the lush coral formations are a breathtaking sight. You will find many different species within the coral gardens, including brain coral, elkhorn coral, black coral and purple sea fans. This particular area of the Bahamas is a snorkeling paradise.
After all that action, you can enjoy a delicious barbeque prepared by the crew. Savour the taste of fresh, local food such as BBQ ribs, chicken buffet, Bahamian peas and rice, salads and tropical fruits. This is a fun and memorable experience for both families and couples – a highlight of any holiday in the Bahamas.
