Day 1 Embark in Nassau
Arrive in Nassau on your independent international flight. Catch a cab from the airport for boarding of your sailing vessel, the Liberty Clipper, at 5pm. Enjoy a Captains Welcome Reception this evening and get settled in for your Caribbean sailing adventure.
Days 2-6 Sailing the Bahamas
Set sail the following morning to begin your island hopping adventure!
The principal islands that the ship will visit during your cruise may include the Berry Islands, Andros Island, Eleuthera Island and Abaco Island. The Captain will determine the ultimate course based upon the wind direction and any exciting events known of in the area. Each sailing cruise is unique and special in this aspect. The islands are all known for something special:
Andros Island: Andros Island is the Bahamas' natural wonder. This island is home to the world's 3rd larges barrier reef; is a migratory bird paradise and lies along the "Tongue of the Ocean" (a large protected sea to the East) where whales, marlin and dolphin abound. Andros Island is the largest Island of the Bahamas and where the Liberty Clipper spends a large portion of her time cruising. This island offers amazing wildlife and is steeped in history while still providing charming coastal towns that present opportunities to explore and pick up some local-made gifts and souvenirs.
Berry Islands: This cluster of 30 cays is very secluded and offers amazing "swim ashore" beaches and spectacular snorkeling on these largely uninhabited islands.
The Abacos: The Abacos are locally considered the "sailing capital of the world." When the winds are favorable, the Liberty Clipper will sail these islands moving from island to island. The Cays of the Abacos were settled by English colonists and still remain a very New England look and feel with while embracing a Bahamian flair of pastel colors.
Eleuthera Island: Eleuthera Island extends in a North-South direction and is 110-miles long while only two miles wide! It's endless white beaches, colonial villages and pineapple fields always charm visitors.

The Liberty Clipper is a 125-foot beautifully renovated gaff-rigged schooner, a replica of the renowned Baltimore Clippers, made famous over a century ago for their speedy and safe rounding of Cape Horn on expeditions to the California Gold Rush. Her authentic design is exceeded only by a state-of-the-art galley, modern accommodations for up to 24 guests, and a beautifully adorned grand salon.
The Liberty Clipper is rigged as a traditional gaff-rigged schooner. She carries three head-sails, or jibs. In addition, the sailing ship has a fore-sail and main-sail. The Liberty Clipper's size ensures safety and comfort aboard during a sailing vacation. Enjoy time on the main deck during the day without having to worry about the sails. If shade is preferred, there is plenty of space on the vessel in the shadow of a sail or spar.
