The Bahamas is once again opening its borders, ready to welcome travellers to its Paradise-like Islands, balmy weather and azure waters.
You and your loved ones can be amongst the first to return for an incredible vacation aboard the beautiful, first-class luxury charter yacht REMEMBER WHEN.
This fantastic vessel can accommodate up to 12 guests in six large en-suite cabins, and although guests might be reluctant to leave their sumptuous air-conditioned surroundings with TV entertainment, there are plenty of other amenities to entice everyone up in the morning. Among the crew is a Dive instructor and a massage therapist for adventuring and pampering in equal measure, and the highly trained chef will create delectable meals while catering to any and all dietary requirements.
The timeless interiors use dark wooden panelling to create a sophisticated ambience perfect for special occasions and evening soirees, while families with young children will feel equally at home with the plush furnishings, cosy nooks and social spaces inside and out.
Of note is that the main salon has a piano for guests to entertain their guests while dining, meanwhile the sky lounge is ready to hold any gatherings, with a large wet bar, ample seating and a widescreen TV to show the latest sports and blockbusters.
Sun worshipers have the marvellous sundeck at their disposal wherever you travel, and it comes equipped with a raised forward Jacuzzi with bar seating, a spongy sun pad, and sun loungers aft. The shaded central section provides an alfresco dining area, wet bar with barbeque grill and TV entertainment, and gym equipment to ease any guilty consciences after all of the flavoursome cocktails and multi-course meals.
Both the upper deck and main deck offer alfresco dining and lounging areas with bars close by for efficient service, and the deep swim platform is the perfect place to sunbathe next to the clear water and watch the fish swim by or get the water toys ready for an adrenaline-filled afternoon.
M/Y REMEMBER WHEN has status as a PADI Certified Dive Centre, so guests can learn new skills such as night diving on the journey. Even if diving doesn’t appeal to all guests there is a wealth of water toys to choose from, including jet skis, Seabobs and a Laser Pico sailing dinghy.
The Out Islands
The Out Islands are an exceptional destination for outdoor adventures and wildlife encounters, with just enough settlements along the way to satisfy culture seekers and shoppers looking for hand-crafted items from local markets or unique boutique looks.
Eleuthera & Harbour Island
Eleuthera & Harbour Island are considered by many to be the best of the Out Islands for their historic towns in New England style – which were adopted by the rest of the Bahamas – and amazing water sports along unspoiled coasts.
Harbour Island is the most well-known of the Bahamas pink sand beaches and welcomes visitors year-round. Savour a fresh pineapple cocktail from the island and let your cares to slip away.
Shallow Scuba dive sites such as the steam locomotive at Devil’s Backbone and Glass Window Bridge will become treasured memories for beginners, while the more experienced can enjoy the wonders of Current Cut, the Cathedral and myriad wreck dives around Rock Sound.
Cat Island, Conception Island & Rum Cay
There are myriad dive sites to discover around Cat Island and guests can immerse themselves in a colourful world of corals, cave dives and the Tartar Bank wall dive, which drops off from 18m/60ft to 914m/3,000ft.
Conception Island has its own wonders, such as a lake home to stingrays and green turtles that will enchant children and guests alike.
Rum Cay is distant enough from the main charter routes to keep most away, leaving you completely free to zoom through the crystal clear seas with the water toys. The wreck of the HMS CONQUEROR is more than 150 years old, and you have one dive site after the next to explore before relaxing on the blissful white shores.
Stunning white cliffs rise out of turquoise water at Long Island, and this popular destination has excellent fishing and diving spots, beautiful beaches and attractions like Dean’s Blue Hole, the world’s deepest blue hole. Novice Scuba divers can swim with reef sharks at a depth of just 12m/39ft at the north end of the island, and the pink sand beaches make for a romantic setting to propose or celebrate an anniversary together.
The Acklins & Crooked Island
The Bight of Acklins is a sheltered shallow lagoon ideal for snorkelling and Scuba diving, while families with younger children will be more than happy to splash along its crystal clear shores.
Limestone caves, coral gardens and small settlements await the avid explorer, with remnants of old cotton plantations as a reminder of a less peaceful past. The bonefishing is sensational around these islands, and the professional chef aboard M/Y REMEMBER WHEN can turn your prize catch into a savoury lunch seasoned to perfection.
Nature is at its most resplendent on Inagua, a haven for birdwatchers who come to see the 80,000 Indian Flamingos, the burrowing owl and an endemic hummingbird called the Inagua woodstar. Great Inagua is 45% national park and Little Inagua is a protected sea turtle breeding ground surrounded by dense reef. Snorkel and kayak along the shores and find a warm white sand beach for an afternoon of games, dining and sunbathing while listening to birdsong and the waves.
Consider luxury yacht REMEMBER WHEN for your next holiday in the Bahamas and enjoy the benefits of a tried and tested vessel and crew providing excellent value with plenty of entertainment options – even for the most distant Out Islands.
