Been there a quite a few times (but not recently). The charter
service we used several times offered boards as an add on to the
charter, but they were pretty much P.O.S. We opted for a higher H.P.
tender so that we could expedite goofing off after dropping the hooks
(you always use two in the Abacos). With the right gear, you could
have some really good times. But it just wasn't that kind of
destination back then. I suspect things haven't changed.
Take snorkeling gear. Especially if you can get over to Guana or
Elbow Cay. The Abacos have the 2nd best barrier reef in the world.
And it's only about 4 feet down when the tide is right. The wind
that time of year isn't that great anyway.
Take the ferry to Hopetown. Climb the lighthouse. Tre Cool.
Eat Conch Fritters.... Anywhere. Don't think, just eat.
Drink the Guana Grabber at the resort on Guana.
Rum is cheap. Take advantage of that.
Avoid Treasure Cay... Unless you like golf course mentalities.
The mercantile on Green Turtle has THE coolest t-shirts.
There's no booze on Man '0 War. But it has one really cool shipyard.
The sand is the nicest I've ever seen. Especially on Elbow.
The Abacos defined "island time" for me. Everywhere else is hyper
compared to them. Go with it or don't go.
Have fun. I'm jealous.
