ICW – Northbound P2

Part-two of our ICW adventure is about all of the land fun we had along the way! Part-one was more about navigation, bridges, and stories as first-time ICW travelers. But our favorite part of cruising the ICW was taking our time to explore parts of the coast of Florida that we hadn’t seen since we

ICW – Northbound P1

Proudly checking off sailing The Intracoastal Waterway, a.k.a “ICW”, a.k.a “The Ditch”. Check. 🙂 The ICW is basically the superhighway for boats! This waterway allows cruisers to travel along the east coast without having to enter the Atlantic Ocean. The plus side to this

Exuma Land & Sea Park – Boo Boo Hill

This place is insanely g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s! So glad we were able to stop here on the way back up North because we sadly missed it on our way south. Warderick wells is the headquarters of the National Exuma Land & Sea Park, a 22 miles stretch of cays that promotes the saying “take only photos,

There are two mooring fields available here, we anchored at the North end to be closer to the trails and beaches we wanted to see. The charts show that there were 4 mooring balls here however when we arrived there was one and it was broken. We spoke with the park warden when he came […]

Exuma Land & Sea Park – O’Brien’s Cay

Our second stop in the Exuma Land and Sea Park! This beautiful small cay is just North of Cambridge, offers great protection, and gin clear waters! It’s also adjacent to Little Halls Cay, aka, Johnny Depp’s private island…but no sign of Johnny during our stay, lol. We explored the

Adventures in George Town

The capital of the Exumas is George town, the largest island in the chain where cruisers congregate through out the sailing season. This town has become our “home” away from home over the past month. Mainly because we’ve had THREE boat guest fly in to visit us from April to May an
