Christmas in the Bahamas is not complete without the annual Christmas Junkanoo Festival that takes place on December 26. Thousands of locals and tourists dress in colourful costumes and come out in the streets of Bahamas to dance to the rhythmic bands playing soca, reggae, roots and other genres of Caribbean music. The Junkanoo parade can be witnessed in Grand Bahama, Eleuthera, Bimini and Abaco.
Sailing a private yacht charter in the Bahamas is ideal during the winter months. Unless a strong cold front approaches (which it does from time-to-time), you can pretty much expect to have 15 to 20 knots from the Eastern direction.
Keep in mind, sailing the Bahamas in the winter will be busier. Everyone is escaping the cold weather in the northern US states, but with over 700 islands that make up the Bahamas you are sure to find a great spot to anchor!
Yes! Many people have asked about the island of swimming pigs in the Bahamas. This is in fact a place that exists!
The pigs live on Big Major Cay one of the 365 islands that make up Exuma; a district in the Bahamas. The island (also known as Pig Beach) is 82 miles from Nassau and 50 miles from Georgetown.
The island is only inhabited by these pigs which were left behind back in the 1990s when a pig farm was supposed to be established (and then abandoned) by a group of businessmen.
You can charter to the area and swim with the pigs year-round although during hurricane season (June-November) if there is any threat to the island a local tour group will take them to shelter.
Whether you want to swim with the pigs or just cruise by and view the island, it may be worth a day trip to this area of the Bahamas on your charter vacation!
