    Water Cay, Jumentos

    March 13, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 5 °C

    We made a quick lay over at Water Cay. Anchored in front of a huge wall of limestone and sandtone. A great eastern wind protection in about 15ft clear blue gorgeous water. The spearfishing is great! Bob speared his fish Hog fish. The snorkeling was phenomenal. It looked like a huge aquarium with big beautiful nature's reef. There's a blue hole but the seas were rough to visit. We had sundowner with a few other friend sailors. The beach was background was more tropical than others. And there was a shark swimming along the shore, we actually could only see the fins but still kinda creapy!Read more

    Flamingo Cay, Jumentos Islands

    March 14, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    This anchorage is an excellent protection from SW-SE in over 2 meters off the beach.  We were surrounded by plenty  coral heads. Only three sailboats anchored at this spot. We had our own sandy curved beach. Great spot for snorkeling and spearfishing. Water was so clear about 10ft deep. We saw a huge barracuda and 8ft shark swimming around our boat. We also caught a 25-30 pound Jack fish with our trolling line along side of our boat, really funny!Read more

    Hog Cay, Ragged Islands

    March 20, 2016 on the Bahamas ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We anchored at Middle Pen Bay. Its a good eastern wind protected anchorage but with some poor holding areas. Our anchor dragged again! We had about 20kt wind with unexpected Northern winds. Although, Bob had his best spearfishing day ever at a point nearby. He speared 2 large yellow snappers, a large grouper and a lobster within less than an hour.  We made a trip to Duncan Town which is the only settlement on the Ragged Islands. The town is small as you can imagine with only about 70 residents.  We had lunch at Silver Tail Logging. They also have great free wifi. The only grocery store available was closed. Cruisers are able to order their grocery via the mail boat from Georgetown but it takes about a week or two to arrive. Coming well prepared and provisioned is essential since very little or any is available here. The cruisers along with resident support have built this phenomenal Hog Cay Yacht Club for us cruisers. Cruisers have left behind their boat names all around the inside of the club. We did a bonfire and celebrated Bob's birthday. There are also many well marked trails along this entire cay. All of them take you to the Atlantic side. The high top views are amazing!Read more

    Coco Cay Bahamas

    November 15, 2014 on the Bahamas ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Well this must be the fourth or fifth time I've been to Coco Cay, and still not got off.
    Not really interested in beaches and that's all that's here.
    So that means we've not been off the ship once on this cruise, luckily I like sea days, lol.
    We've got four ports next week on the Oasis, so will probably get off at those.Read more
