South Andros, Bahamas trip with Kite Club NY
Kiteboarding Trip to South Andros, Bahamas!
February 23th -March 2th, 2013
South Andros Island is a very special place, distinctly different from the well-traveled and highly-frequented tourism destinations in the Bahamas. It’s far less inhabited, and the folks who live there are some of the nicest, most laid-back, carefree and gentle people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. The sand is bone-white, firm, and the water is gin clear.
The waters surrounding South Andros are so shallow (only 1ft-4ft at low tide), that they create a safe and fun environment for newbie kiteboarders, but also provide an amazing playground for advanced riders. Combined with the famous Easterly trade winds, which blow from morning till evening (powered by a local thermal effect created through a reef separation of the warm shallow waters from the colder deep sea), this makes for a perfect spot for an amazing kiteboarding experience.
Here is the deal:
Beginner Kiteboarder Camp All inclusive Package: $850.00.
- 7 nights accommodations
- 3 days of Lessons (total 9 hours in semi-private groups)
- Equipment rental for the rest of the trip
Or choose your options:
Kiteboarding Lessons : 3hr – $250-private/$185 semi-private
Accommodations Only: For 7 nights – $300.00 per person (based on 2 person per room occupancy)
* Also we can have a Housekeeping person who will cook us lunch, keep the house tidy and do our grocery shopping so we can maximize our time on the beach. The cost is $50 day + grocery cost which will be shared between the participants of the trip.
The accommodations offer beachfront splendor in an unsurpassed atmosphere of privacy, located on the shoreline of a picturesque and secluded six-mile beach that extends infinitely toward the horizon. The beachhouse rests amongst 100 swaying palm trees, in a quiet, out-of-the-way setting, but one that is still just minutes away from quaint convenience stores, wonderfully small restaurants, and Jeffrey’s Fresh Vegetable Stand!
The easiest way to get to our island is from Nassau. Several discount carriers (JetBlue, etc.) now fly to Nassau and airfares have decreased substantially this year; Western Air (242-377-2222), has two flights each day from Nassau to the South Andros Airport at Congotown, at 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. ($120 round trip), though these times vary slightly from season to season. You will need either a passport or a birth certificate to enter the Bahamas
