You're talking about the bar that used to be (or is now?) here? (see map below)... thanks!

It was nice but overpriced. We grabbed a Pain Killer and headed up the road in the back. Met a really nice fellow named Achilles and spent a couple of hours talking and shooting the 20 knot breeze with him.

Saw that we did and went back for it. Thank God it was just sitting there bobbing, Weight in for us. Save me a tone of money.

Absolute bestest painkiller is the one served at The Baths. I sampled a lot. That's the one that I still long for.

Skip the lobster. Have a great time. I highly suggest playing shut-the-box at the bar on Cooper Island Resort, drinking painkillers during happy hour.

No, I was giving a tip (be at the front of the line to get off the boat) not suggesting you tip anyone.

Your bags go off the boat without you. You first get in the customs building, then pick your bag out of a sea of luggage.

Brings me to another tip. I always carry on the airplane, so there is no chance I lose luggage or miss a ferry waiting for checked luggage. If that's all you have, you can carry it aboard the ferry, but the luggage guy will be all over you at St T to have him take it for you in the hot sun, while he is looking for a gratuity to do it. This tip has nothing to do with saving money, it's just nerve wracking to lose track of your luggage in a third world country, especially if there is anything of value within.

Re: Pirates bight at norman island reopens after “make over”

Bring as little as possible. Nothing formal needed. Being a New England lobster guy, the southern lobsters do nothing for me. I skip them. However, restaurants are a bit pricey, no way around it. Eat some on the boat and some on shore. Who are you chartering with?
