BOATING ON ABACO IN THE BAHAMAS
Information and E-Mail for Cruisers
We think Abaco in the Bahamas is a superb spot for boating and all water related activities - and our many visitors agree. Here are links to Abaco pages that should interest all boaters.
Note the Boat Rental sites here on Abaco. Instead of Hertz or Avis for rental cars, we rent boats here to get around between the cays, to explore, to fish, to picnic, and to enjoy the beautiful reefs, beaches, and bays of Abaco.
Important Boat rental here is by the day. Don't expect a partial day rate for picking up a boat at 2PM or bringing one back at 11AM. Any other arrangement is a special case and you must have that documented before you take the boat to avoid misunderstandings.
