Pink sand beaches and bright sunny days are beckoning to you from the Bahamas, so take along friends and family for a luxury charter aboard Lady J and divide your time between spotless beaches fringed by palm trees and topaz waters, activities on land and in the sea, art galleries and boutiques, or an electric party scene after dark. Nassau is the heart of all things modern, but far from the only place in the Bahamas for spa massage services and other treats, so set yourself free to explore it all knowing that there’s always something to satisfy everyone.
Luxury yacht LADY J is timeless in her surroundings, offering up a touch of nautical charm with plush contemporary furnishings and all the modern comforts for birthday celebrations, girly getaways, romantic breaks or just some quality time catching up with family and friends. Gather the group together for great conversation and a film before a multi-course dinner is served by your professional on board chef. After, guests can settle into the skylounge for drinks and games as the stars emerge to sparkle on the water.
Life outdoors couldn’t be better with three ample decks and a swim platform to choose from: The luscious sundeck will draw everyone in from Day One with its tempting Jacuzzi and sun-drenched sun loungers along the stern. A bimini shade is available for the hottest hours of the day with a selection of fruity cocktails and other refreshments available from the bar, and the widescreen TV will showcase the latest films and sports, day and night. The lower deck swim platform provides easy access to the water via a ladder, and this will be the base of operations for hours of fun on the water toys. Once everyone has worked up an appetite, both the upper deck aft and main deck aft offer elegant tables for shaded alfresco dining.
In contrast to the wealth of sunbathing spaces and other indulgences on board, the available activities are designed to satisfy active lifestyles. The list of water toys, beach toys and other equipment is exhaustive, but some of the highlights of the collection include jet skis, mountain bikes, an inflatable trampoline and Scuba diving equipment (available to certified divers only). The Scuba diving programme on board is exceptional, and whether you and your group are novice Open Water 1 divers or raring to go for the challenge of eerie caverns and night dives drifting with the current, your Dive Master knows where to take you. The waters surrounding Nassau are teeming with wrecks and coral reefs but one of the most popular is Runway Wall, also known as Shark Arena, in Stuart Cove. Visitors of all ages can swim with placid reef sharks, and the brave in the group can stay around for feeding time.
If you fancy seeing some Hollywood magic up close, the southwestern coast is also home to the wrecks that starred in multiple James Bond films. There are two advantages to diving in the Bahamas: The crystal clear water provides excellent visibility and the water is rarely very deep. Both dive sites are in just 12m/40ft of water, making them accessible to all ages and experience levels – even snorkelers can enjoy the view from above.
Those who count fishing amongst their hobbies will feel right at home aboard M/Y LADY J, which specialises in the activity along with Scuba diving. Even beginners can have a go at catching their dinner on a lazy, cloudless Bahamian afternoon. What’s more, you can enjoy six-star service with your refreshments brought to you, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Bonefishing is popular in the shallows or you can head out to sea for big game fish such as marlin, tuna and much more.
Although you can fish throughout the Bahamas, the Out Islands are the go-to destination for many for the sheer number of fishing grounds and bounty on offer. When you want to leave the rest of the world behind, escape south to Crooked Island and Acklins. Not only is the Bight of Acklins a wonderful place to snorkel, Long Island to the north west is home to the world’s deepest blue hole as well as some magnificent white sand beaches, and wildlife lovers have Mayaguana and the Inagua Islands to the south for sea turtles and rare and endemic bird life.
The accommodation aboard LADY J is designed for up to 12 guests over 5 en-suite cabins: 1 King suite, 2 Queen staterooms and 2 twin cabins that can be converted to Kings. Each of the Twin staterooms also has a trundle berth available for small children. This versatility also extends to your group arrangement so that everyone can comfortably join the adventure.
If your group is looking for a holiday with plenty of options and locations from day-to-day, all taken care of by an attentive crew, then consider luxury yacht LADY J for your next Bahamas charter.
