Summer lovin’

Summer should get a speeding ticket, seriously! Our summer/hurricane season break was filled with lots of fun adventures! Feeling grateful that we were able to have this time to freely travel the country, stopping along the way to see friends and family. But what we loved most about this summer was

Gulf Stream Crossing – Take two!

After an unforgettable 3 months sailing through the Bahamas we crossed the Gulf Stream back to Florida! Our first sailing season has been a crazy, fun, sometimes difficult, but mostly awesome adventure. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time passed. Wow. We’ve grown and learned so muc

The Blue Hole

The Blue Hole

While working our way up the Berry Islands we stopped at Hoffman’s Cay for one night (a little tricky to get to with 5-7 foot depths in some places, but it was totally worth it!) so we could see the “blue hole,” which are basically underwater sinkholes/vertical caves. It’s about 600-ft wide

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,

Exuma Land & Sea Park – Hawksbill Cay

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

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

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

Cost of living on a sailboat?

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
