Abacos Cruise + Fly / Hotel plans
April 15, 2015 - May 6, 2015
Hello MBYC cruisers:
Attached is a tentative float plan for our Abacos cruise next year. Dianne and I have been visiting these islands since 1981 and have chosen our favorite places. Mileages are listed. As you can see, it takes a while to get there, but then all the good harbors are just a few miles apart.
Every destination is a marina, but we will probably do some lunch anchoring with a beach picnic on days that we are moving. Every Abaco stop also has a great “Marco Island” class beach and at least one great restaurant and bar (plus a few dives). All stops have fuel.
Also included is a companion hotel cruise. Several members have asked me about flying out and staying in hotels.
See http://www.abacolife.com/ for lots of good info and photos of the places we will be visiting. Read the E-magazine after expanding it to normal size.
Let me have your thoughts on this itinerary. I won’t make any reservations until this Fall; so changes are fine.
