Snorkeling off Great Guana Cay, Abacos

We spent June 20th lingering about in Marsh Harbor until midday.  Our lingering about included a few additional hours of terrestrial exploration and a fuel stop at one of the local marinas.  Lunch in hand we sailed out of the harbor on a broad reach.   Pleasant sailing brought us to Baker’s Bay, on the northern end of Great Guana Cay, for the evening. 

Forecasts for light winds and calm seas beckoned us to explore the reefs along ocean side. On low, rising tide we snuck C’est la Vie trough the small rock outcrops and reefs to find a anchorage within a few hundred yards of reefs the lie along the outside of Great Guana Cay.  After diving on the anchor to ensure it’s set, we loaded up Rosebud and began our exploration.

The area is a popular dive spot and fortunately someone has placed small boat moorings among the reefs.

Feeling sedated from our morning of snorkeling we returned to Baker’s Bay in the afternoon and spend another night in the same anchorage.
