16 Islands, 16 Experiences
As we always remind you, we have 16 different islands in The Bahamas for you to explore. Each with its own unique history, character and experiences. Here's an example of how easy it is to travel from one island to another.
Do you have clients that are yearning to experience the real Bahamas? Who want to interact with locals and learn about Bahamian history and how to cook authentic cuisine from them?
Our People-To-People Experience is the perfect program for your clients to get a real taste of local island life. Let us know which island(s) your clients would like to visit and what their interests are. We will use this unique information to pair your clients with a Bahamian Ambassador who will enhance their vacation experience by sharing our way of life with them.
The Bahamas Specialist Program
Become a Bahamas Specialist!
We have an interactive and educational Bahamas Specialist Program that will help make you a specialist in selling The Islands of The Bahamas. The three-step program will take you on a journey teaching you about the uniqueness of each of our 16 islands, our diverse accommodation options, and the vast range of activities in The Bahamas to help you tailor your recommendations based on your client's needs.
