I’ve sailed by the Bahamas on the Pineapple Cup route from Fort Lauderdale to Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was gorgeous and I look forward to just hanging out there. We had to be very careful because our draft was 17’Nantucket is nice, particularly this time of year after the tourist season. But what MarkofSeaLife is describing is a whole 'nother level of clarity and color. The attached sailing pic shows some of the blue, and the nurse sharks in the other pic are on the bottom in 12' of water.
We've sailed around the entire Caribbean Sea and some of the Med, and have never seen water like the Bahamas. The water there more than makes up for the flat, dry, ugly land parts.
