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

Nurse Sharks at Compass Cay

Ooooh Compass Cay you are beautiful! We anchored here for one night before making our way up the Land & Sea park. The entrance channels getting here are rather unique but very well marked, maintained, and dredged – which is highly unusual in the Bahamas. But the main attraction here is swi

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

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

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

Boat work – Before & After

Our time at the marina has flown by! Since moving aboard we immediately jumped into our long list of project to-dos. Starting with organizing, cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning. It’s been non-stop updates to the boat interior – decor, painting, wood staining, installing, repairing, a
