ASA 105 & ASA 106 – Gulf Stream Adventure Flotilla

Guana Cay, Man-O-War, Hope Town and more…

ASA is delighted to offer special ASA Flotilla charters in conjunction with Cruise Abaco. These by the cabin charters will allow ASA Members to experience a bareboat charter experience while having the opportunity to obtain ASA sailing certifications.

ASA 105 & ASA 106 – Gulf Stream Adventure Flotilla

Cruise Abaco are pleased to offer our Gulf Stream Adventure charter October 31 – November 7 (arrival dates approximate) aboard either our Leopard 44 ft. catamaran or our Helia 44 ft. catamaran; both of which offer 4 cabins and 4 heads, as well as one of our Jeanneau 41 ft. sloops which offer 3 cabins and 2 heads. Our ASA Captain will require one cabin so we will have 3 cabins total per catamaran and 2 cabins total per monohull available. 

Rates for this charter will run $3,850 per cabin for the catamaran (single or double) and $3,425 per cabin for the monohull (single or double). The rates include the Captain’s fees, fuel, water and any dockage/mooring necessary for the charter. Rates do not include ASA courses (to be added to the charter rate as booked), provisions or alcoholic beverages during the charter. Since the charter originates in Florida we are not charging the 4% Bahamian tax, and since the Captain will be aboard for the entire journey we will not require a damage deposit for this charter.

The Gulfstream adventure will offer all levels of ASA courses up to 106. We depart Port Canaveral Oct 31st. and depending on weather.  Passengers need to be flexible.  The journey may head straight down coast and then across or down coast to Ft. Pierce or West Palm beach and then across to West End on Grand Bahama or run to Spanish Cay, from there we island hop with final destination at our base at Great Abaco Beach Resort/ Boat Harbour marina.

PLEASE NOTE:  The quoted rates are based on full occupancy of each boat; to guarantee rates we must have full occupancy of each boat and all cabins booked prior to sailing.

All guests aboard each boat must be fully vaccinated at least 14 days prior to the charter.  Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the Bahamian Government requires all visitors to obtain a Health Visa for entry into the Bahamas.  The cost of the visa depends on your length of stay in the Bahamas ($40 to $60 per person) and includes expenses for Covid Health Insurance and rapid antigen testing as appropriate.  Guests who have been vaccinated at least 14 days prior to arrival will be exempt from testing but are still required to obtain a Health Visa for entry into the Bahamas.  Currently, the U.S. requires a negative rapid-antigen test taken within 3 days of your return flight to the U.S.; this test is included in your Health Visa and unless you extend your stay in the Bahamas will suffice as the test required for re-entry to the states.

  • Arabella Testimonial Marge

    “Steering a 157 foot schooner under full canvas in 20-25 plus winds was exciting, with the wind tearing at my hair. With beautiful blue skies and turquoise seas in 80 degrees, what could be better?”

    Marge Benning, Denver CO

  • Arabella Testimonial Tracy Kosbau

    “Everything is taken care of. You don’t have to worry about anything. You just sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery, fresh sea air and fantastic ports of call to explore. In a very short time, we all got to know each other and everyone felt like family to me. I learned a lot, and enjoyed sharing this brief moment in time and space on this lovely boat called the Arabella.”

    Tracy Kosbau

  • Arabella Testimonial Tim Shuman

    “What do a film producer, a tech consultant, a dad and his son have in common with a group of Puritans? They all boarded a boat named Arabella bound for Massachusetts, albeit 385 years apart. Unlike John Winthrop and crew the modern passengers sailed in comfort on an ASA sponsored voyage to Martha’s Vinyard, Nantucket and Cuttyhunk islands!”

    Tim Shuman

  • Arabella Testimonial Fred Wyckoff and Gerri Haan

    “Absolutely no better way to relax… A full day of sailing aboard the “melts my heart” Arabella, lobster for dinner and slow trip back to the schooner during golden hour. Fantastic!”

    Fred Wyckoff and Gerri Haan

Everyone deserves this type of mega yacht sailing experience at some point in their lives, but few can afford it until now. ASA is giving you an opportunity to join us on this unique, and unforgettable, sailing vacation.
