Departing from Marsh Harbour, your Abacos adventure starts on the Southern Sea of Abaco; anchor up in Little Harbour Bay or the Bight of Old Robinson Bay. A sheltered paradise, the Bay is home to the Abaco Yacht Club. Come ashore and view the bronze sculptures by artist Randolph Johnson who originally settled on the island in 1951. Experience the laid-back Pete’s Pub for delicious and creative cocktails or some fresh seafood. Take in the sunset with a paddle behind Channel Cay.
SOUTHERN SEA OF ABACO
Visit Robinson’s Creek in the morning, exploring the mangroves and blue holes, in the company of stingrays, mangroves, and tropical fish. Snorkel in O’Neil creek and swim with three different varieties of endangered sea turtles – a truly special experience. Continue your adventures in the water on Lynyard Cay and Goole Cay, diving for conches, or simply relaxing on one of the many stunning beaches.
ELBOW CAY / LIGHTHOUSE
Once home to British loyalists in the 18th century, the Cay’s main village, Hopetown, boasts a sheltered harbour and is overlooked by a striking red and white striped lighthouse. Spend the morning wandering around Hopetown, a characterful town full of charm, before enjoying lunch on a nearby sandbank with the ocean lapping at your feet.
Man O’ War Cay is home to just 200 residents, with a long boatbuilding heritage – visit the island’s tiny museum dedicated to this history. Enjoy a swim in the vibrant blue waters before taking the tender to Fowl Cays National Park and its protected reef that is rich with life. This is the perfect spot to enjoy some snorkelling or some beach time on nearby Scotland Cay.
