PASSAGES: DR North Coast & Mona Passage

With weather finally favorable and our despacho in hand it was time to leave聽Luper贸n! We spent over two weeks here thinking we may never get a good weather window to leave so saying goodbye to this perfect hurricane hole and cheap street food was bittersweet. Can’t say we weren’t dread

Hola! Get comfy there’s LOTS to cover here! It’s been 3 weeks since we crossed over to the Dominican Republic.聽Luper贸n to be exact! A cruising destination I once said, “Ooh, we are not going there!” Last season so-and-so聽said “customs people with large guns will boar

Passages: Turks & Caicos to the DR!

Down the ‘Thorny’ path we go! It’s a rite of passage for any cruiser making their way to the Caribbean, and this particular passage is considered the roughest leg of the journey due to harsh seas and the wind generally coming from the wrong direction.聽Not gonna lie, knowing this m

Eleuthera means 鈥渇reedom鈥

Eleuthera is a gem! It’s remote but easily reached, gorgeous, and it’s not very touristy. Eleuthera has this unique combo of pristine beach + outdoor adventure. It’s a nature lovers dream! It kept us intrigued and excited to keep moving south to discover what these islands had to o

Boat work…in Paradise

Happy 2019! 馃檪 I once read that owning a boat and full-time cruising means doing a lot of boat work in exotic places…well, it’s 100% true! Half the battle is just 鈥渄iagnosing鈥 the problem. Then you add limited resources in the islands on top of that and it gets stressful real quick
