Boating in The Berry Islands

Boating

The water's depth is seldom more than 20 feet here. Grass patches and an occasional coral head or flat coral patch dot the light-sand bottom. You might spot the odd turtle, and if you care to jump over the boat's side with a mask, you might also pick up a conch or two in the grass. Especially good snorkeling and bonefishing, and peaceful anchorages, can be found on the lee shores of the Hoffmans and Little Harbour cays. When it's open, Flo's Conch Bar, at the southern end of Little Harbour Cay, serves fresh conch prepared every way you can imagine.

Great Harbour Cay Marina. In the upper Berry Islands, the full-service Great Harbour Cay Marina has 80 slips that can handle boats up to 150 feet. Accessible through an 80-foot-wide channel from the bank side, the marina has one of the Bahamas' most pristine beaches running along its east side. The marina is also one of the best hurricane holes in the Bahamas. Fuel can be obtained at a separate dock west of the marina. 242/367–8005.

Happy People. At Great Harbour Cy Marina, Happy People has boats available for exploring the island. They also rent golf carts and jeeps. Great Harbour Cy Marina, Great Harbour Cay. 242/367–8117.
