Man O War Bay, Great Inagua, Bahamas

April 19-20, 2017

Beaching the Dink - GI MOWMOW Bay - GI MOW

Why, oh why, did we not move to this anchorage sooner?? This bay has redeemed Great Inagua of the unending surge, constant boat movement, and no place to land the dink that we have been experiencing for the past 2 weeks.

Church Ruins, GI MOW Work is never done - GI MOW

The beaches are accessible. You can walk on them and explore an old church ruin.  There is a mangrove you can explore, better to be done at high tide. We went at low tide and didn’t get very far until the dinghy bottomed out.  A cell tower provides service and data.  You could haul your kayak and paddleboards  and explore the miles of salt pond waterways and mangroves. There are some coral heads with color (60% dead) and reefs with fish!  We took our few days and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  I don’t know how many hours we spent towing each other up and down the mile long  bay’s coral ribbons  behind the dinghy and dinghy swim snorkeling, looking at all of the beautiful underwater life.

We are heading to Bonaire sometime this upcoming weekend to make this first 7 day “doable” weather window.  It could be another month before another one opens up. So, with great regret, we have to go back to Victoria Bay to stage for checking out.
