I prefer the quieter places so the northern cays appeal to me more than the "hub" area around Marsh Harbour and Hopetown. But for first timers Man-o-War and Hopetown are must sees.

There are lots of charter boats sailing south of "the Whale" but once you get north of Green Turtle it's a lot quieter. So whatever you're looking for, you'll probably find it in the Abacos.
Interesting. I really want to go to Green Turtle, so I'm sure we'll brave The Whale, unless the weather for the whole week turns out terrible, which I guess is possible if a nasty prolonged front comes through.
