Jump Into a New Summer "Fling" With Bahamas Boating Excursions

Summer Boating Flings Offer Fun, Simple Group Journeys to The Islands Of The Bahamas

NASSAU, BAHAMAS--(Marketwired - June 15, 2015) - Perhaps there is no better way to visit the Islands Of The Bahamas than under the guidance of an experienced Bahamian mariner so this summer visitors of all ages are encouraged to embrace their adventurous side and experience the wonders of boating at the many marinas on the islands with an armada of boat enthusiasts during a Boating Fling. Participants in a Bahamas Boating Fling are provided with one of a kind opportunity to explore the islands in a unique way. The flings are especially attractive to novice boaters.

Boating Flings run from June to July and boaters will be able to journey across the Gulf Stream to access the beautiful islands in The Bahamas. With nothing but white-powder sand and crystal blue water surrounding the boats, there are picturesque views to delight as each 'fling' has one lead boat that is captained and the captain will happily share stories on how boating helped shape the identity of these islands.

It has been said that a Boating Fling is not unlike a fun-filled road trip except this is in the blue Caribbean with copious amounts of sun, sand and sea to go around. Fling participants will receive an itinerary of entertaining group activities, but of course participants can venture off to sunbathe, snorkel, scuba dive, fish and stock up on Bahamian bread, Johnny cake and Guava Duff as they please.

Registration has already begun so you are encouraged to register as soon as possible because spots are reserved on a first come, first serve basis.
