The WPT Voyage starts on the 31st of March 2024 and runs until the 6th of April, with three full days at sea and two exciting destinations in the Bahamas. The Valiant Lady sets sail from Miami, Florida, and returns a week later.
The first stop is the Cayman Islands, where you can golf, snorkel, and check out what these beautiful islands have to offer. You can explore the seven-mile beach, Stingray City, Cayman Crysta Caves, and more. The Valiant Lady will be docked at the Cayman Islands from 9 am the morning to 6 pm the evening, so it gives you an entire day to enjoy the gorgeous locale.
The second stop is Bimini, which is a chain of islands located in the westernmost district of the Bahamas.
Here you can enjoy another day of water activities or just explore more beautiful islands. Once again you have plenty of time, as the boat is docked from 8 am to 8 pm. Places of note you can experience in Bimini are the Dolphin House Museum, Radio Beach, Rainbow Reef, and more.
