Events & Packages

Marsh Harbour and Schooner Bay are alive with never-ending events. From world-class billfishing tournaments to health and spa weekends to festive Junkanoo celebrations, there’s always something special to enjoy. Schooner Bay offers a variety of vacation packages designed to match your interests while you’re on island. Here is just a sampling:

The “Island Chill” is dedicated to leisure. Itinerary-light, it leaves room to enjoy our beaches, stroll about, eat gourmet meals, and hang loose at Pete’s Pub, perhaps the most sought-after watering hole in the Bahamas.

The “Wellness” Discovery Visit suggests beach walks and early-morning bike rides, swimming and yoga by the sea. Tour our organic farm with a chef to pick items he’ll cook for your evening meal. For a digestif, try stargazing from the dunes.

The “Eco-Explorer” invites you into the full wonder of South Abaco. Day tours with guides, support boats and the necessary safety gear will have you exploring blue holes, old ruins and caves (bats, orchids, stalactites!). Kayaking, spearfishing and snorkeling will build an appetite for the delicious and plentiful meals.

“The Spirit of Cuisine” features a champagne breakfast served en suite, followed, necessarily, by a day of leisure. Beach Club? Harbour stroll? Your choice. Then come home to your verandah for a chef-prepared lunch. Later, it’s dinner at The Delphi Club. And this, make note, is only your first day.

“The Full Angler” showcases the unparalleled fishing on the nearby flats and blue-water charters, allowing you to enjoy an angler’s paradise blessed with unpressured waters and fish waiting to surprise you. As will the genius of the chef who prepares the day’s catch.
