    Here is a video of Norman’s Galleon point / saddle Cay area... the abandoned day trip resort is cool. Lots of shade, great for a picnic

    Thank you for posting this. I'd prefer to dig in here as opposed to Highborne again.

    The approach has about 6 1/2 MLW and you have about 7’ in the anchorage. As usual explorer charts are spot on

    Aquamap is a must in the Bahamas as it uses explorer charts. Navionics is awful in the Bahamas with dozens of errors.

    I'm very familiar with these areas, cruise them often, and still enjoyed watching the entire video. Well done!

    I agree Navionics is horrible in the Bahamas and Aquamap is better.

    But I hate the shading of the Aquamap in the U.S. and prefer Navionics there. I REALLY miss the old Garmin blue chart app, it was perfect everywhere.

    True. I still have Blue chart on my old iPad. Great in the us or Bahamas. Yes she shading on Aquamap in the US makes it harder to read

    Here are videos from trips I've done in the Exumas. Taken and edited by the owners son with a djia mavic pro. The Shroud Cay one is my favorite.

    The Staniel Cay video is fantastic. Noticed the landing strip at Cave Cay!
