We left you hangin’ since last spring as we were leaving the Exumas & beginning our trek back north. On our way from the Bahamas to Florida, we traveled thru the Berry Islands via an unusual, shallow route. This banks route is a bit of a shortcut which takes you about 20 miles from Bonds Cay to Great Harbour Cay.
Without a chart plotter you’d have no idea where to go, as the bottom everywhere looks just like this. However most of the banks are only 1′ – 3′ deep! On our chartplotter, Explorer Charts shows a little dotted line to safely bring you thru a narrow path of slightly deeper water. This was our second trip via this route, but we decided to kick things up a notch & anchor overnight right in the midst of it all.
Of course, I had to paddleboard into the sunset. Lori was probably doing some planning . . .
I did make it back & then we did make it the approximately 1,200 miles back to New England for the summer without any real issues or problems.
