Some of the world’s most beautiful stretches of sea surround Grand Bahama Island, which may account for the high number of visitors who arrive here the old-fashioned way—by sailing into port. The island has several marinas, most of them fully equipped with electricity hubs, waste-disposal units and fuel stations. Old Bahama Bay in West End, Port Lucaya Marina in Lucaya and Deep Water Cay Club off the east end are official ports of entry. Additional docking facilities are at Blue Marlin Cove in Bootle Bay, Sunrise Resort & Marina in Freeport, and Ocean Reef Resort & Yacht Club and Flamingo Bay Hotel & Marina in Lucaya. A number of day and evening boat tours are available via catamaran, party boat, powerboat or sailboat. Boaters and those who like to watch magnificent sloops sail will enjoy the annual Grand Bahama Sailing Regatta held at Taino Beach.
