These islands are a great cruising ground and have charter boat options too. So if you want to try Bahamas cruising this might just be the spot!

UPDATE: We revisited these islands summer 2014 and hauled out at the excellent Green Turtle Cay - Abaco Yacht services. Here are links to our newsletters.
