On a well found boat your voyage should take 8 or 9 days staying east of the Bahamas until you reach the North East, North West Providence channel, then zip through that directly to Ft Lauderdale or points north. If you are heading for Miami or the Keys you would use the Old Bahama channel. Virtually nowhere along either route is there a good hurricane anchorage, so it would not be prudent to consider being near any of the islands you are passing for that reason.
At that time of the year, I would make it a "mad dash" trip and forget about sightseeing.
