Some good vibes from the number one industry, as The Bahamas is attracting more leisure cruise visitors and boaters. The Ministry of Tourism hosted the boat and charter show this weekend, attracting some 23 yachts. More than 100 captains, and 86 travel brokers from the United States, New Zealand and England participated.
Tourism officials say the cruise, and marine travel market is untapped and under-served. They now view the boating event as the start of many initiatives to explore this multi-billion dollar industry.
