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.
