Cost of living on a sailboat?

The big question. Before we decided on becoming full time cruisers we did hours worth of research on sailing forums hoping to find a “magical” number. Quitting jobs and selling belongs is a big decision and if you’re in the research phase it’s totally normal to be questioning

Bumper boats at Staniel Cay Yacht Club

Staniel Cay Yacht Club is one of the busiest marinas we’ve been to in the Bahamas. Full functioning hotel with water front cottages, a gift shop, guided tour boats, they also have the nicest dinghy dock I’ve ever seen, and a bar/restaurant with 3 dining rooms for breakfast, lunch, and di

Thunderball Grotto! A Beautiful surprise

Thunderball Grotto lies west of Staniel Cay. We were anchored off of Big Major Cay, next to Staniel, and dinghied over at low tide. Very popular time to go, so there were lots of guided tour boats but we anchored our dinghy off to the far right by some rocks (about waist high at low tide), [&hellip

When Pigs Swim

Big Major Cay, what’s commonly referred to as “Pig Beach” in the Exumas. An uninhabited island home to about 10-20 swimming piggies!! These guys aren’t shy at all, as we pulled up to the island they dived right in to greet us. We also brought some sliced apples and grapes along with us, the

Ahhh Exumaaaa!

We made it to the E-X-U-M-A-S!! Our sights have been on this place since the beginning! After a week in Nassau, it was good to finally be on the move towards these beautiful islands. We had a new crew member join us from NYC, who made the crossing with us over to Norman’s Cay. Rough […]

Great Bahama Bank + Birds Cay

Wow are we seeing the Bahamas in an entirely different light lately! After an adventurous Gulf crossing to Bimini, this particular passage had us really excited because we got to cross the Great Bahama Bank! The Great Bank is made of limestone deposits and, scientists believe, was exposed to the ai

Bimini…Spring Break 2018

Our original plan was to start traveling in February, but with some additional projects, boat work, etc it didn’t work out that way and we didn’t want to rush the process. Instead our Gulf stream crossing just happen to align with Spring Break. Now I didn’t think of Bimini as a Spring Brea

Maiden Voyage of S/V Sea Duction

We’re officially cruisers! I cannot believe it’s been almost two weeks since making our first crossing! We sailed her from Royal Palm Marina in Dania Beach, FL  and over to Bimini, Bahamas! Our first stop in our Bahamas adventure. The trip over is a fairly easy sail, however weather win

A beautiful day at the office

We are going somewhere, people! The Coast Guard finally sent us our paper work 🙂 Beyond excited, as we’ve been anxiously waiting for this moment. After 58 days, we’ve finally taken the boat out of the slip. Sea trials are meant to test the “seaworthiness” of the boat, electronics
