Experience

Life Aboard Bonnie Lynn

Living on the water is a special experience.  Not only are you able to travel to places that are inaccessible by land, but you also become intimate with your environment: the winds that carry you from place to place, the waters that keep your vessel afloat, the creatures that you share the ocean with.  Life becomes simpler, and as time goes on you realize that your biggest dilemmas become increasingly tangible: what are we going to eat today? Should I wear an extra layer in case the weather changes? Would I like to snorkel before or after lunch?

 

The social experience on a sailboat is also unique.  While we are fortunate that Bonnie Lynn was designed to offer privacy for everyone aboard, ultimately, we are sharing a 72-foot by 15-foot space.  Everyone will become “shipmates” by the end of your trip, which is a special bond unlike any other.  The friends and family members you choose to sail with are going to become your closest companions for the length of your stay.  Keep this in mind while planning for your trip.

Sailing

Sailing on Bonnie Lynn is fun for novices and professionals alike. Most days we sail for a few hours to get from one destination to another. For those who really love sailing, let's spend the day tacking around and see how many of the 11 sails we can set!

Hiking

Want to stretch your legs on land? A New England charter has great hiking to offer in places such as Block Island and Maine.  In the Bahamas, there are dozens of islands that have meandering trails for all levels of hikers.

Kayaking & Sailing Dinghy

Snorkeling

What is better than "simply messing about in boats"?  We carry two single kayaks and an 11-foot sailing dinghy aboard that you are welcome to use.  A great way to explore shorelines or develop your sailing skills.

Relaxing

Stretch out in one of the hammocks on deck, curl up with a good book or grab a float and enjoy the crystal clear water.  There is plenty of time to unwind and soak up the simplicity of life afloat.

Get underwater and experience incredible snorkeling and/or free diving in the Bahamas.  We carry masks, fins, and snorkels for all guests. Erick is a professional diver and is happy to introduce you to the underwater eco-system, while helping you improve your snorkeling skills.

Food & Drink

Food & Drink

We take great pride and joy in providing fresh, healthy, and fulfilling meals for our guests.  With an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients, we incorporate techniques and tastes from cooking regions around the world.  Prior to your charter, we will send out a thorough preference sheet for you to fill out that will help us prepare our menu according to your individual needs and preferences.

 All of our multi-day charters include three meals a day, plus unlimited snacks, daily happy hour nibbles & cocktails, and a standard ship's bar (local rum, beer, house wine, soft drinks).  We promise you will not go hungry or thirsty!  We are also happy to stock the bar with speciality liquors & wines at an additional cost.
