The story of the Bahamas isn’t the story of just one island. It’s the story of 700 islands and cays, and how they complement one another. Island hopping, as it’s known, is simply the best way of understanding that story. It’s like sight-seeing by boat.

Eleuthera and Harbour Island are surrounded by a handful of islands and cays, which make them perfect for an island hopping adventure. Blue waters connect them, unique animal encounters fill them, and the many secrets of low tide lay between them.

Meet the captain

Captain Ryan was born in Spanish Wells, Bahamas. He knows the waters, because he grew up on them. He knows the people. They are his family and his friends. Most importantly, he knows what travellers are going to enjoy. Even if they can’t quite put it into words.
