Bahamas Poker Run

Date:
Saturday, May 25, 2019 - 7:00am

This annual charity event, the first of its kind for local maritime sport, benefits the Bahamas National Trust, specifically the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. It initially started in 2016 with 26 participating boats and has now grown to over 70 boats.

Hundreds of boating enthusiasts — personal boat owners, commercial boat charters, engineers and mechanics, captains, and beach-goers — ride in a day-long convoy of powerboats from New Providence to the Exuma Cays. There are multiple island stops along the way, including places like Allen’s Cay to feed native iguanas. The participants play cards and collect prizes along the way to the final destination of Compass Cay Marina.
