Greetings Everyone!
Its been a while since I've blogged. I have no idea why.
So I'm trying to put together an exploratory kayak expedition to the Exuma islands. I'm trying to get it together for April 20-28, 2008 or some where near that date. If I don't get enough folks by then it will have to run in November 2008. I don't have any photos of the place (never been there), however, a google image search will get you drooling. I have heard incredible stories of these islands, hundreds of islands.
Below is an itinerary I found and plan to use upon arriving in the islands.......

On this expedition we will visit a number of islands, marine habitats, coral reef, blow holes, blue holes, and incredible isolated beaches. Includes 5 days kayaking with 4 nights camping under the stars, guided island to island sea kayak trip in the Exumas, first and last nights lodging, most meals, beverages, boats, camping and snorkeling gear, round trip airport transfers and all internal transportation, services of Adventures in Florida staff.

Day 1
Arrival date, stay at Barre Terre Bonefish Lodge, a quaint lodge located 50 feet from the water on the northern Exumas (D).

Day 2-6
We’ll spend five days exploring the numerous remote cays surrounding the northern end of the Exumas. Each day we’ll pack a picnic lunch, take along the snorkeling gear, and set off to uncover new treasures and sights. We’ll plan to paddle about 4-6 hours a day but of course we’ll be flexible to the desires of the group. So if you want to relax under a palm tree on the white sandy beaches, snorkel along the reefs and coves, or leisurely paddle through the mangroves, we’ll make it happen. We’ll camp on pristine white beaches each night, watching the sunset over the water, enjoying hearty gourmet meals, and gazing at the star-filled night sky. (B, L, D)

Day 7
After a hearty breakfast, we’ll pack up, paddle back to Barre Terre and catch a ride to Georgetown for our final night stay at one of the local Inns. We will have some time in the afternoon to do a little sight-seeing on our own, visit the handful of shops, or take the ferry to nearby Stocking Island, known for its crystal clear waters, white sands and blue holes. Stocking Island is a long thin island about 1 mile across the harbor from Georgetown. It is accessible by ferry service from Georgetown and is worth the visit. At the end of the day, we’ll indulge in some delicious Bahamian fare at a nearby restaurant, tell tales of the week’s adventures, and say our goodbyes. (B, L)

Day 8
Depart for home.

Cost $1300. pp. Double occupancy
