Travel to the Exuma Cays, Bahamas aboard your own private charter yacht
Looking for a unique family vacation? A journey that the kids will be talking about for years to come but that will also please everyone in the family with lots of options and flexibility in activities? Picture yourself on a fully-crewed, private chartered yacht exploring remote islands in the Bahamas. Parents can relax, leaving meal and activity planning to the captain and crew, but also have the flexibility to customize the voyage to keep everyone happy while bringing the family together in a way you never thought possible (and without breaking the bank.)
The sailing vessel, Cat Ppalu, heads from Nassau to the Exuma Cays for week long voyages, the same as All Star Liveaboard’s Aqua Cat and Blackbeard charters, but when your family and friends have chartered the Cat Ppalu you have the freedom to explore the Exuma’s how you want. You are in control to customize your trip to perfectly cater to your family’s desires for an idyllic vacation.
If you really liked that last dive site you can stay for another dive or more snorkeling. If you want to spend the day kayaking and stand up paddle boarding, you can choose to do that. Want dinner on an uninhabited beach? That can also be arranged. The remote islands of the Exumas become your personal playground, allowing you to come and go as you please, with the support of a full yacht crew to meet your every need. Go where and when you please (of course, you do have to get your family or group to agree.) But who would disagree to more epic diving, snorkeling, or relaxing on your personal sailboat over the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas?
How many kids can return to school and tell their friends they spent a week on a private yacht in the Bahamas for their family vacation? Turn a normal family trip into an exciting adventure and make endless memories the whole family will remember for the rest of their lives. The 65ft Cat Ppalu sailboat can be your floating hotel with six double cabins allowing for up to 12 passengers and shared bathrooms. Spacious enough to provide ultimate comfort and privacy, but intimate enough to bring your family and friends together for a family holiday like no other. Plus there’s enough room for big families or to bring along the relatives and close family friends.
Learn To Dive On Your Next Family Vacation
While diving is one of All Star’s specialties, these sailing charters are all about you. Trips do not have to be diving orientated and you can create your own personal bespoke itinerary. Cat Ppalu provides an excellent base to dive from but there are also plenty of other activities for the whole family. Many families come out and take advantage of the private yacht experience focusing on snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, beachcombing, relaxing and other land-based activities. Explore white sand beaches with no other people around with the freedom to decide if you want to stay longer in one place or move on to another.
Not a diver but curious to try? We can do that too. With top of the line rental dive equipment onboard and trained instructors we can take your family diving for the first time. Want to get your kids certified? Our dive instructors can make the week a family adventure in learning how to dive, getting kids advanced certified or work on specialty courses together as a family. For those already certified the
Exumas offer excellent diving with many different types including healthy reefs with plenty of fish and marine life. There are ship wrecks and underwater planes to dives, a blue hole to visit, drift dives and more to help kids gain experience while having fun with the whole family. Our famous shark dives can be included too for the adventurous family, although sharks of several species are common sights on most dives in the Exumas. Up to 19 dives and all shore activities included.
Chartering the Cat Ppalu can allow you to personally customize your family dive trip to meet whatever experiences you were hoping for. For example you can choose to only do a few dives and the rest of each day can be filled with hiking at Warderick Wells Park, kayaking in mangroves, beaches, or open water, beach combing and looking for shells, stand up paddle boarding, and of course, meeting the swimming pigs of the Exumas.
