Great Guana Key, Bahamas

Community Fish Cleaning Action At Great Guana Cay
Sunshine, clear waters, fresh fish, friendly people - it doesn't get much better. Unless of course you also like messing around in boats, in which case all your dreams can come true here at Great Guana Cay in the Bahamas. I guess it must be a little frantic at peak tourist season, but right now its extra laid back and friendly. We arrived here yesterday after a quick 3 hour passage from Green Turtle Cay, and have settled into the anchorage to sit out the front that is expected later today.  We're in 3 meters of water with 27 meters of chain out, so we're not planning on going anywhere soon.

This morning we took the (fast) ferry 16nm to Marsh Harbor, where the Admiral found a hair dresser and we both searched the hardware and marine stores for parts we needed. That search turned up nothing of value, so we headed back to Great Guana in the early afternoon. This afternoon, before the weather deteriorated, we spent a few minutes testing our new aerial camera system, with great results. Click the play button below to view.


  1. Gidday Neil. I like the video you took at the end of your blog. What is this new aerial camera system you have? BTW I chose to spend the winter down under this year and have been enjoying fabulous weather. It is also noticable how much easier to live here compared to north America. I enjoy following your blog. After all these years you still maintain a high standard. Cheers Peter (Onapua)

    1. Hi Peter, thanks for the comment, glad to here you're relaxing in Oz - this being Australia Day etc. The camera platform is a DJI Spark drone, cheapest model they make, but never the less an excellent little imaging system.
