Bahamas Poker Run

The Fourth Annual Bahamas Poker Run, in benefit of the Bahamas Nation Trust Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park, sets course for The Exumas on Saturday, June 1, 2019.

This annual charity event, the first of its kind for local maritime sport, benefits the Bahamas National Trust. 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 convoy of powerboats departing from Nassau Harbour (New Providence) and traveling to the northern islands of Eleuthera.

This full-day experience includes multiple island stops along the route, where participants collect playing cards and prizes, including a $5,000 Grand Prize. It ends with food, drinks, and a beach party.

Advance registration is required and will begin 36 hours prior to the event.

Cost:

  • $100 per person (includes food and drinks)
  • $160 per person (includes food, drinks, Tervis Tumbler, and UV shirt)
