Nassau – Exumas – Nassau, Bahamas Sample 7 day Itinerary
Day 1 – Arrive at the Nassau Airport on Grand Bahama Island, greeted by members of the Mirage Crew and proceed to Mirage, docked at Atlantis. Spend the day and evening enjoying the many diversions of Atlantis, or explore Nassau.
Day 2 – Leaving Nassau behind, arrive at Normans Cay in time for lunch. After lunch there will be plenty of time to snorkel the plane wreck that is near by. Experience the wonderful island atmosphere with dinner at Big Major’s Spot.
Day 3 – After a leisurely breakfast, arrive at Thunder Ball Grotto. The snorkeling is so beautiful here, you will easily imagine yourself in a giant aquarium. After your refreshing snorkel, you will proceed on to Sandy Cay where lunch will be served as a beach-side picnic. Mirage’s shallow draft allows the Captain to pull her up very close to the beach. Chairs will be placed in the shallow water, for the ultimate picnics n the water! Play off your lunch by participating in the underwater treasure hunt that will be held, or perhaps now is the time to check out the exercise equipment on Mirage. Finish the day by heading to Georgetown, Great Exuma for dinner.
Day 4 – Start your day by snorkeling the amazing Blue Hole, which your Captain will introduce you to. Indulge in a leisurely lunch at Stocking Island, with plenty of time to explore ashore, followed by a quick dip to cool off. Mirage will then continue your odyssey by moving on to friendly Sampson Cay in time for dinner.
Day 5 – This is a day you will remember forever. Wardrick Wells will be your destination for this morning. This could well be the inspiration for Jimmy Buffet’s song about One Particular Harbor. Established as a Land and Sea Park in the mid-1980s, it is a paradise, whether hiking the trails or snorkeling the limpid waters. After an active morning, you will leave and arrive at Fowl Cay in time for lunch. Following lunch, it’s time to hop into the water again, this time to snorkel the Caves at Rocky Dondas. You will be in Allen’s Cay for dinner, which will surely lively, as you discuss all you saw and did that day.
Day 6 – Put your hiking shoes on and pretend you are Charles Darwin! You get the opportunity to do just that when you go ashore at Allen’s Cay to feed the iguanas. No, don’t save any of the iguana snacks for lunch, as you will be going to Shroud Cay for a beach picnic. Need for speed by now, and some cool exploring? Now is your chance to jet ski through the mangroves and rivers of Shroud Cay.
Day 7 – Return to Atlantis with plenty of time to enjoy the giant aquarium, water slides, shops and casinos. After a full week of relaxing, indulging in the incredible cuisine prepared by Chef Leslie Bore, snorkeling and exploring, you can return home refreshed and looking forward to your next charter adventure on board the M/Y Mirage!
