Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina is the Top Choice in This Island Nation

South Florida is a top yachting city in the world, and yachts and superyachts are a way of life along Fort Lauderdale and Miami. But this area of the Sunshine State is also closer than you might expect to another yachting haven: The Bahamas. The distance from Miami to this island nation is less than 200 miles, so it’s not all that surprising that taking a boat or yacht between the two is a popular travel route. When people are looking for the best Bahamas marinas for Florida visitors, one top facility is a clear choice: Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina.

So what makes this world-class marina in the heart of The Bahamas the best? Top amenities for yacht captains and crew members, a great location on Paradise Island, and all kinds of shopping and dining options right near the marina all help make Hurricane Hole the winner. And there’s another thing: this marina has slips available for even the largest yachts. Let’s explore some of the many reasons why Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina might be the right place to rent a slip and stay a while if you’re making the voyage from Florida to The Bahamas.

All Kinds of Amenities Are Available

When looking for Bahamas marinas for Florida visitors, it’s important to consider the basics, such as the location of the marina. Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina has that covered. Its location on Paradise Island brings visitors conveniently close to the world-famous Atlantis resort and casino, and people who stay here are close to the populous capital city of Nassau, accessible by boat or bridge from Paradise Island.

But don’t forget to also check into available amenities at the facility. This is where Hurricane Hole shines. For yacht captains and crew members, Hurricane Hole represents a secure, top-notch facility with all of the bells and whistles that could be desired — and so much more.

Let’s start with a newer amenity: The Captain’s Lounge and Crew Gym, a two-story facility that opened in the summer of 2023. The dockside facility is the place to go for yacht captains to get away and relax in comfort on the upper floor, where they can take in the views from a glass-railed deck, while on the ground floor, captains and yacht crew members can exercise and enjoy time off the yacht in a gym just for them.

Hurricane Hole made the news late in 2022 when it became the first and only marina in The Bahamas to offer in-slip fueling. This state-of-the-art and cutting-edge amenity offers unparalleled convenience for large yachts because refueling can happen right where a yacht is docked, with no need to wait in line or monitor refueling.

As part of a world-class redesign and expansion project that wrapped up in 2022, Hurricane Hole gained new infrastructure that makes it the best marina in The Bahamas for yachts and superyachts. With slips up to 420 feet, as well as 6,100 linear feet of deep-water docks — including floating docks that rise and fall with the tides — there’s room for even the largest vessels here.

Add to that things like 24/7 security, internet and communications connections for the modern age, and on-site concierge services, and it’s no wonder why Hurricane Hole Superyacht Marina has become the country’s go-to marina for yacht captains and crews.

If you’re in the mood to book some excursions on the island, line up transportation to get around, make reservations at restaurants or golf courses, or get help with laundry services, Hurricane Hole’s on-site concierge services can help make just about anything happen that you want.
