Eleuthera ?

Thinking about putting the boat in a slip at Cape Eleuthera resort at Powell Point on Eleuthera. Does anyone have experience with this harbor or Eleuthera generally?

Thanks. Mike Graham. Island Packet 44. Spike.

Nice people, nice place ... BUT ... no wind protection from those winter fronts. The good news is, you can watch the sunset from your slip. The bad news is, there's nothing between you and the wide ocean horizon, just a low strip of beach. The fairly deep entry can let enough wave action into the basin in the worst of a NW frontal passage to make the boats bounce around quite a bit, especially those on the east side of the basin. We spent about 2 weeks there hiding from an endless series of fronts about 2 years ago. For all its problems, we'd go back again next time we are in the region.

Great diving and snorkeling, beachcombing. I got the sense it was more of a powerboat/sportfisher place than a sailboat haven, but nice nevertheless. Grocery store nearby with a very good selection, feels like what you'd find in the States. If you're interested in ecology research, check out the institute (I forgot its name, but its contiguous with Cape Eleuthera Resort) next door. Hydroponics, solar energy, etc.

Re: Eleuthera ?

Eleuthra is amazing. Have anchored in rock sound, govenors harbour, and palmetto point. Moored at Hatchet Bay and Spanish Wells. Explorer chart forum has good info.
Rock sound great town, excellent anchorage. Most other anchorages are fair weather only. Recommend rent a car and tour whole island, lots to see and ocean beaches are amazing, including a world class surfer beach. Some great caves, excellemnt restaurants (local places) and good provisioning.
