As a youth, Adam would disappear into hidden coves with his brother, trolling for fish while handling a sailing dinghy. He explored everywhere and is familiar with every island. His passion for the Bahamas is evident.

Adam's parents, along with his younger brother Warren, all set off for a world cruise on their sailing boat once the boys reached teenage years, so Adam is also very widely travelled to many exotic parts of the world. When they reached Australia the boys went to school and college the...

Comments from the Broker - July 28 - Aug 4, 2021 ~ Georgetown, Exumas

They had a wonderful charter, and Capt. Adam was kind enough to send me a picture of them lounging on the foredeck, and let me know they arrived. I’m very grateful for his communications with us as well as with the Charterer.

Boat was well maintained for age and clean. Food was well prepared, diverse and tasty, light and met our expectations. We enjoyed the areas we cruised. The most memorable was Kiteboarding in Elizabeth Harbor, and the beautiful beaches. We would definitely recommend this charter to our friends and family. The services were excellent!
