Re: Need a Bahamas Cruise Itinerary

A total of 9 days (allow 4 for the crossing and wx windows) will leave you only with 4-5 'easy' days in the Abacos.
All depends on the weather and the general 'flow' that will delay a safe/easy crossing of the Gulf Stream.
Going west to Ft. L will require bucking against the GS ... I think it better to cross to Lk. Worth inlet and then either take the small countercurrent down along close to the beach or take the dreaded ICW south from Palm Beach.
