The Berry Island Club on the eastern end of Frazer's Hog Cay was closed for quite a few years. It was a favorite stopping place for sailing cruisers in the Bahamas
until it closed. Over on the the western end (actually on a different Cay) the Chub Cay Club is the center for the Sport Fishermen power yachts that come over from Florida
off the eastern wall of Andros Island and the Joulters Cays. They were never known to be friendly to boats/cruisers who were not "big-spending" sport fishermen.
- - It is wonderful to hear that the Frazer's Hog Island Club is back and operating. I will certainly make a point of stopping there on my way back west from the Caribbean
- - Culebra
in the Spanish Virgins is also a favorite stop when I am in the area. Usually when sailing from St Thomas to Fajardo, P.R. to get some supplies and a "Walmart" fix. I usually stop there on the return trip back to St Thomas and eastbound. Anchoring
off the little town of Dewey is easy and there are some favorite little haunts like the Dinghy Dock
. Also the little bakery store on the street to the Ferry
terminal. We tied up our dinghy to the concrete "city pier" west of the canal
through the island. If you Google Earth
Dewey you will see our dinghy on the north side of the Pier. From the pier walk up the street and turn right. At the end of this next block turn left to go to the Ferry
Terminal on the west side of Dewey. Walking and exploring the area is never boring. Also I always like to dinghy completely around Ensenada Honda
and up into the mangrove swamps and finally out to the Ensenada Dakity mooring
area. Great reefs
and fun exploring.
- - Culebrita was not very interesting and because it was a weekend and the "Puerto Rican Navy" (nickname for small power boats from Fajardo) had what seemed like 30,000 boats anchored there. Maybe during the mid weekdays it is nicer.
