Black Point Settlement

We departed Staniel Cay for Black Point Settlement on the 28th of April to ride out a storm in their well protected anchorage.

Low tide

After dropping anchor and securing the boat, we took the dogs to shore to do some exploring.

We found an amazing blowhole that gets pretty extreme during rough seas.  


We made a video of the blowhole, but for some reason I can't get it to post here, so if you follow this link you can view it on my You Tube page.

The town proper is a cruisers’ paradise.  Restaurants, bars, a well stocked grocery store, and an inn that offers laundry and hot showers!

We stocked up, did laundry, and returned to the boat to wait for the storm to arrive.

The rain started that night and continued for two days, finally ceasing the afternoon of the 30th.

Everyone (dogs included) were getting stir crazy on board, so when we woke up to sunshine on the second day we were ecstatic!  Time for a hike!

Black Point has to be our favorite town in the Bahamas.  The island has a really good vibe to it.  We made some friends, both locals and cruisers, and crossed paths with old friends from Waredrick Wells.
