In October of 2015, the strongest Atlantic storm since 2010, Hurricane Joaquin, devastated the Central and Southern Bahamas. The damage to the region’s infrastructure was enormous: at least $60 million in property damage, hundreds of homes destroyed, storefronts and resorts washed away.

The Bahamas Stop Off and Drop Off Campaign supports the combined efforts of visiting captains and local residents to rebuild the Central and Southern Islands better than ever.

Captains sailing to the Central and Southern Islands can donate much-needed tools, supplies and food items in exchange for a free night of slip space.


Thanks to Stop Off and Drop Off donations, the Bahamas have seen renewed construction and restoration in the months following Hurricane Joaquin. Local volunteers across the Central and Southern Bahamas will assist captains in receiving and distributing relief items throughout the islands’ settlement communities.
