Places not to miss in the Bahamas?
So my Bahamas trip is starting to come together. Thanks so far for all the advice I've gotten from members on here. Now I'm looking for a little more.
Here's the outline of the trip -- I'm looking to fill in the details -- well, at least have suggestions of places to go anyways.
We'll leave from Mobile in Mid-may and make a passage to the Dry Tortugas.
After a few days exploring there and weather permitting, it'll be over to either Key West for a day, or straight on around and up to either E. coast of Florida or straight to Bimini.
Any advice on the best route to do this? Key West isn't required, and I've had Bimini recommended as a good port of entry for the Bahamas, but that's not set in stone.
About 16 - 18 days after leaving Mobile we'll need to arrive at Nassau (or some other good airport). We're going to exchange some crew memebers (some flying down, some flying back).
Then we've got about 15 - 18 days to explore again, and need to come back to Nassau for another crew exchange.
After that drop off, the plan is: have fun, explore, and arrive in Mobile by the end of June (probably another 15 - 18 days again)
So, given our time constraints, and our resulting cruising radius - are there any suggestions on places to visit?
Also, Nassau just seems to be the most convenient and reasonably priced airport, but if there are other suggestions as a pick-up / drop-off point in the Bahamas, that'd be useful information as well.
Thanks for all your suggestions and help so far!
