Nassau to Georgetown or visa versa

Starting to plan our annual charter in the Bahamas for May. Considering a charter starting in Nassau and ending in Georgetown Exumas. Or starting in Georgetown and ending in Nassau. Stopping at Snorkeling spots will be a priority for the trip. Any reason to choose one direction over the other in May?

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know

Wow ! Four pots in a row with speeling errors

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

I can relate. I'm a dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac. It often keeps me awake at night, wondering if there really is a doG.

Re: Nassau to Georgetown or visa versa

I would start at the location you want to do most

Nassau - party, shop, be in the people scene
GT - gunk hole beach’s and snorkeling

Yes the SE wind on paper make going GT to Nassau easier ........ on paper. But a charter trip is a schedule and it’s 50/50 at best it works out.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

We've done a number of Charters in the Exumas. Most starting off in Georgetown and one where we flew from Nassau to Staniel Cay and started there then flew back to Nassau from Norman's Cay. For my gal the charters are all about the snorkeling. We've certainly got our favorite spots. Shopping is not on the agenda. We plan to get off the boat in Nassau and head right to the airport.
