    I'm looking into the Bahamas for our DW, but I'd prefer to do it on a more private beach where there won't be other people all up in my ceremony. I'm also considering doing a 3-day Bahamas cruise where one of the days is an excursion to go to the wedding. (I'm not worried about legal formalities, I can always take care of that here in Ohio if need be.) I was wondering if anyone had any research/experience with weddings where you charter a boat to go to a private island?

    Some possibilities I've found while searching online are:

    unique wedding ceremonies, wedding locations and bahamas weddings on private islands in the exumas
    (i've done this as an excursion before, and had a total blast! i was probably 16 when we did it (now 25) and we still talk about how unique and fun it was. however, 15k is a little more than i was looking to spend, and i'm not sure about mixing wedding with iguanas and sharks and stingrays. haha. however, i know it's a totally gorgeous location, even if the adventure part was left out.)


    Seahorse Sailing Adventures Daily Excursions from Atlantis, Nassau Paradise Island Bahamas


    Sea Island Adventures, Nassau, Bahamas, private island, beach, watersports, snorkel, lunch, coral reefs, historical sightseeing cruises


    Barefoot Sailing Cruises, Nassau, Bahamas, sail, cruise, snorkel, evening, dinner, barefoot, private charter, Bahamas
    (this doesn't look ideal b/c i think i will have more than 26 guests)


    Nassau Paradise Island Bahamas snorkel, party cruise, Bahamas beach party
    (Skeptical of the name "Party cat." lol)

    Please let me know if any of you have and experience/research info you can share about these trips or any other options I haven't discovered yet.

    Thanks so much!

        What a great idea!! Have you checked out Compass Pointe for a wedding? From some pictures I have seen, the resort looks much more secluded than others.

          Great Information! I really like the idea of a sunset cruise! I wish I knew how many people were coming so I could book it!

            Don't know if you're interested, but there are also some small resorts on private islands (or mostly private islands) that offer wedding packages. I was looking into Small Hope Bay Lodge for a while, but vetoed it because of the variety of people I have coming.
            21 people + Bride & Groom booked!!

              Harbour Island is a really nice getaway location. Many celebrities vacation there because of the seclusion. I know that Sasha Souza's book features a destination wedding in Harbour Island. Bahamas Fast Ferries does a day excursion to Harbour Island from Nassau. Check out their website bahamasferries.com for details.
