Christmas time in Bahamas

Hello everyone.
We bought our boat, 45' Leopard catamaran, and survived our shakedown cruise. We went from Fort Lauderdale to Key West, hoping we could get to Bahamas but Noel (sp) prevented the trip. Christmas day we fly back to Fort Lauderdale and will try again. Our plan is to sail down to No Name Harbor and then over to Bimini. Our goal is to sail for about 6-8 hours per day, stop for a while and then off again to the next destination. We're not yet interested in an overnighter so we want to sail during the day only. We're hoping to be in a warm enough climate that we can snorkle, dive and just generally enjoy the sun's warmth. We have about a month. Any suggestions regarding route, destinations, activities would be greatly appreciated. We have Frommer's guide but would love some other input. Additionally, we'd like to keep the boat in the Bahamas for a while (months) so we can go back and enjoy it again in April. I've heard that Marsh Harbor has reasonably priced slips. Any other ideas?
