Great Abaco Island is the home of Dream Yacht Charter’s base in the Bahamas, located at Marsh Harbour, the capital. This spot offers the ideal gateway to exploring the Abacos Islands. Laid out in a half moon shape, the Abacos Islands extend approximately nearly 130 miles in length. The northernmost point is Walkers Cay in the north with Hole-in-the-Wall bringing up the southern tail. The ocean waters surrounding the islands are blessed with serenity, due to the natural protection offered by the outermost islands and cays.
