Within 1000 NM?? Not bad for a WAG.

Saba has the clearest water we've ever seen, but no shallow water like that, and no sand.
obelisk likes this.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Saba is a nice try. Would be nicer if it was correct


Hints:
Known for very clear water
Less than 1,000 miles from Barbuda
Not Saba

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, correct. Exhumas, Bahamas.
Hopefully you didnt need to look at my website to see the photos.

Your go

The water that day was very clear and no wind. I jumped into the dink to go somewhere and the clarity of the water made the water 'disappear' it was like riding a magic carpet 10 feet above the ground as all I could see was the sand. Quite un-nerving for the first few minutes and then quite exhilarating.

Hey, EBS, get your photo up. A quick game is a good game!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Might need a bit of helpful hinting with this one. Other than presumaby somewhere in the Bahamas, Florida Keys or Florida Gulf Coast I have no idea. Then again I could be completely wring and its over Baja way.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nice white sandy beaches.
I saw that sort of scene all the way down the Atlantic coast of the USA.

But I don't know them well enough to pinpoint it at all.

I will have a stab and say that's just south of ft Lauderdale .

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Mark, when the waters on the left looking North it has to be have to be a West coast.

You have the right state and the approximate right latitude.
