Re: Heading to the Keys!

Are you guys divers? If so then google some good dive locations and consider visiting them. If not(is so disregard the following)... How the hell did you buy a boat and go to the Caribbean and NOT learn how to dive!?!?

In the Bahama's, personally, I like the less populated islands much better than the touristy areas. Less to do, though, if night life is your thing. If you're OK with something more laid back(less touristy) try the Abacos. They are East of Grand Bahama and pretty nice. Marsh Harbor is the main town if memory serves, it should be big enough to have any supplies you need and near enough to some remote areas to make easy hops from there. Just a thought, enjoy your trip.

Kivalo - We don't have any set plans for the bahamas. I think the Dry Tortugas sound great. So that is on the list.

any recommendations?

Cheers y'all
