Am going to be in the Keys for winter and heading out to the Bahamas in the Spring. Have no idea where to check in or where to go. Would like to be in at least 8' of water and within reasonable distance of water and groceries at least every 2-3 weeks.
Suggestions....?

Looking for recommendations for places to not miss and those to definitely miss. Have the books.
Where do YOU like to go and why?
Where do YOU avoid and why?

The Bahamas are mostly about the water. The “don't miss” things lots of times are only that because the water there really inst much.

But do Thurdeball grotto.

Do you scuba ?

Cruising books give you all the information you could ever want about an area. What one likes to do or see is usually a personal choice, so it's pretty hard for someone who doesn't know you to make recommendations.
Spend your time in the Keys learning to navigate your boat by the color of the water, not the charts, as the Bahamas has taken a few hurricane hits recently and some of the sand banks could have shifted or built up and the charts have not been updated yet.

To see where we go and why, look at my wife's blogs of our twelve trips to the Bahamas. irish-eyes-to-the-bahamas.blogspot.com In addition to carrying the three guidebooks mentioned previously, read a couple of books on Bahamian history, carry guides to the plants and animals both ashore and underwater, and get a copy of Neil Sealey's "Bahamian Landscapes". Then, get off the boat and talk to the people.
