Re: Bahamas in the Summer

Thanks to all for the info as well. Any advice on converting an "above Hatteras during Hurricane Season" to an all season policy? I just got the quote from my agent and it about doubled my current policy to stay during hurricane season.

Re: Bahamas in the Summer

Summer is great. You can recieve good weather forcasts and there are many more places to hide and moorings available if a storm approaches. In fla there are too many restrictions on anchoring and too much stuff flying around!!

Re: Bahamas in the Summer

I spent a whole year swatting mosquitos one summer night in the Berry's! The ONLY time I go to the Bahamas is in summer!

Re: Bahamas in the Summer

we love summer in the bahamas---few boats thus uncrowded anchorages/ warm water/lower winds/the locals have more time to play w/ us....hurricanes?..been in 6 and only one in the islands after 15 yrs of summers in the out islands...plenty of hurricane holes and some protected marinas...c'mon down---you'll love it too...
