Exumas

New fuel and dockage survey

We just completed a survey of most of the marinas offering fuel and dockage in the Bahamas. Some we were unable to contact at the present time. More diesel and gas prices were down than up.

Please go to our website www.explorercharts.com under Fuel and Dockage Prices to check our latest findings. We will be updating continuously as we get new information.

Staniel Cay Yacht Club Temporary Closing

SCYC doesn’t normally close in the fall, but we will be closing most of the SCYC facilities in October, 2017 for renovations.

The Hotel and Restaurant will close Oct. 6 and reopen November 2.

During that time, the Marina will be open for dockage, fuel, ice, and bait. However, the Marina will also be having work done on various parts so any boaters should expect construction noise if they chose to tie up.

The Bar will also be open, but in a limited capacity (no food).

Both the hotel property and the marina will be receiving significant improvements.

• All bungalows will be completely refreshed, both interiors and exteriors.
• Property walkways are being redone as well as upgrading landscaping and outdoor lighting.
• The restaurant will also be receiving expanded kitchen space to allow for greater capacity and quicker service.
• The marina docks will be completely refurbished and resurfaced.

New touring fee at Highbourne Cay

Highbourne Cay is now charging a $25 landing fee for persons who are not registered at the marina to tour the cay. This fee does not apply to persons just going to the store, the restaurant, or getting fuel.

Waypoint Correction

Correct the Emerald Bay waypoint on Chart EX29A, page 47, Exumas and Ragged Island Chartbook, to read 23° 38.29′ N/75° 54.75′ W. The waypoint is correct on page 46,Chart EX 29, and page 17, Chart EX 7.

Little Farmers Cay update

TY’s Sunset grill has been on our must stop list for a few years. Now that they have built a 120′ dock it’s even easier to stop for lunch and enjoy home made Bahamian cooking.

The face dock has 5’5 to 6′ depth at MLW, is new and in great shape, more space, although less depth on the main pier behind the face dock.

Coach and his team always go out of our way for us and our guests, always friendly and helpful. Beer is cold, drinks and food are resonably priced.

They also sell ice and have excellent free wifi.

Give it a try!

Nothern Exumas cell service

we spend more time in the southern Exumas (Gtown to staniel) and this was our first time stopping around Normans and shroud since the hurricane. Don’t know if it’s related but cell service was worst than before, either no bars or a couple of bars but no connection.

Much better coverage in staniel, farmers, barraterre and Gtown

Normans cay update

Looks like work has restarted on the marina project. We were there yesterday and dozers were working (on a Sunday…) on opening the access to the new marina basin, they had big generator powered lights indicating they may even be working late in the evening.

Exuma Yacht club update

Good news, they are fixing up the docks at Exuma Yacht Club. We were there a week ago (late February) and new planks had been installed on the main dock and there were making progress on the finger piers. Power working at some pedestals and both gas and diesel pumps working. Restaurant open as well.
