Your Itinerary

    1Embark in Nassau

    2Spanish Wells
    We'll depart Nassau this morning on our way to the Spanish Wells. Off the northern tip of Eleuthera island, Spanish Wells is one of the hidden gems of the Bahamas. It was the last stop for refilling fresh water before Spanish ships would cross the Atlantic for home. Across town, you'll find a white sandy beach and warm, shallow water - perfect for swimming or spending a relaxed day on the beach!

    3Spanish Wells and Russel Island
    Today you have options. Stay and explore Spanish Wells, where you can probably have much of the beach to yourself. Take the small bridge from Spanish Wells to Russel Island. Or ride the ferry to Harbour Island, famous for its pineapple fields and pink beaches.

    4Exumas and Hawksbill Cay
    Today you'll sail for the Exumas Archipelago - water so blue, you can see it from space! The ship will anchor at the uninhabited island of Hawksbill Cay. Walk the trails or the beaches, or get out the kayaking or snorkeling gear for some active fun.

    5Gailliot Cay and White Point Anchorage
    Today you'll be cruising within the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. You'll briefly stop at Galliot Cay to enjoy the beauty before continuing on to White Point Anchorage. Fishing in the park is prohibited, which means the water is abundantly full of marine life. The beautifully clear water makes today a great day for kayaking or snorkeling with the fishes. If you'd rather stay on land, wander the island's trails and beaches with your eyes open for iguanas and hutia.

    6Compass Cay
    You'll want to be on deck as the boat comes in to Compass Cay. The harbor is protected, forming a natural aquarium. There are tropical fish and nurse sharks swimming around. You can snorkel with them, or watch from the dock.

    7Compass Cay
    On the north end of the island is a lagoon known as Rachel's Bubble Bath. Or climb to Compass Peak (elevation of 92 feet) to take in the view of the entire Exumas Land and Sea Park.

    8Warderick Wells
    At the center of Exumas Land and Sea Park is Warderick Wells. After enjoying your day of exploring, its party night! The boat will celebrate with a pirate-themed party, with a delicious caribbean punch to toast to our fun cruise with.

    9Warderick Wells
    The Exumas Land and Sea Park headquarters is located on Warderick Wells Cay, where you can learn about the history and current work of the park to protect the region. Photo Op: On the beach next to the headquarters is a preserved whale skeleton.

    10Hawksbill Cay
    We're back to the uninhabited island of Hawksbill Cay! You'll feel like the island belongs to you as you explore the land and sea around you.

    11Shroud Cay
    We'll make a brief stop at Shroud Cay, one island north of Hawksbill, before continuing on to Nassau. For your final night, we'll celebrate with a special farewell dinner and reminisce about the Bahamian fun we had together.

Go Where the Big Ships Cannot

Blount carries on the tradition of ship builder and company founder, Luther Blount, who made it his mission to build boats that could take vacationers to the same destinations he wanted to go to. One of his biggest achievements was the creation of the retractable pilot house. Mr. Blount created it specifically for ships to cruise the Erie Canal. He also created the patented bow ramp that makes it possible for passengers to walk from the ship directly to shore.


Blount ships have a Bring Your Own Bottle policy. The ship provides the mixers and the bartender; you bring your favorite alcohol, and you can enjoy the cocktails of your choice without overpriced bar tabs.
