The island of Eleuthera offers some of the most consistent and powerful surf in the Bahamas. Point breaks, reef breaks and beach breaks, Eleuthera has it all. The island is surrounded by deep Atlantic Ocean on its North and East sides, and that is where the best breaks are located. North coast breaks work on anything from N through NE, East coast breaks on anything from N to SE, predominantly lefts but there are some rights. A 3000-foot drop in the ocean floor, one mile offshore, acts as a swell magnet that can channel in swells from as far away as Africa and the Azores.
The best season for surf is October through April for size and consistency.
When strong cold fronts go off the east coast of the US, winds typically
switch offshore and the surf gets GOOD! From May through July, it's
typically small, and then the months of August, September and October bring
the possibility of hurricane surf in warm, clear water.
Bahamas Out-Island Adventures is the first company to offer 1 day, 2
day/1night, 3 day/2 night and 4 day/3 night guided camping surfaris, seeking
out and surfing the best waves on the island every day. Our surf guides know
where all the best breaks are and under what swell, tide and wind conditions
they work best. More often than not we have these breaks all to ourselves.
At night we camp by firelight under the stars and sleep in comfortable tents
listening to the surf roll in. All our meals are healthy, interesting and
delicious! When the surf is flat or for a change of pace, we go snorkeling,
fishing, kayaking, or exploring caves, blue holes and beautiful beaches.
Learn to Surf!
We also offer “Learn to surf” programs. Instructors stress safety, fun and learning in good beginner conditions and with good beginner equipment. Group lessons and private lessons are available. Half of your 5-hour day goes towards putting into practice what you’ve learned that day on longboards or shortboards. The other half goes toward learning surfing skills like paddling, entry and exit techniques, duck-diving, wave selection, and catching and riding waves. Learn to surf trips generally depart at 10 am and return at 2:30 pm but allowances will be made for tides and surf conditions. Group lessons begin at $60 per person. Learn to surf packages also available. Call or email for more information.
