Places I've Never Been Before

I mentioned in my last post that I recently finished working a really fun, awesome charter. We went to some of our regular spots - the Drowned Cayes, Caye Caulker, and San Pedro - but we also made some new (for me) stops along the way...

Coral Gardens
I'm sure we've stopped here plenty of times before, it's just a bit north of Caye Caulker, but I was probably either cooking lunch or cleaning up and didn't have time to check it out.
This time, though, I had all of my work done and I decided to jump in and do some snorkeling.. and some floating:


Sergeant's Caye
Sergeant's Caye looks more like a little sand bar than an island - but, apparently, there used to be a little more to it until a hurricane came and took out the palm trees and small outhouse that was there



Bannister Bow Caye
Recently purchased, Bannister Caye is now a private island and outside guests are no longer welcome to visit the property - I don't know if it will ever re-open to the public and cruise ship guests or not, all I could find out about it was that a caretaker was murdered there in 2009
Can someone just hire me to go out to remote islands and find out what their deal is - PLEASE?




Unknown Caye
Ok, I'm sure someone knows the name of this little island that is just on the other side of Bannister, but I have no idea what it is or what's going on there. It looks private to me, but I didn't get close enough to check out the entire property. I could see two or three big houses, what looks like a caretaker's house, a dock with palapa, and I noticed a wind turbine...
Again, can someone please just hire me to go to remote little islands to find out what their deal is?!?



Does anyone else know anything about these cayes??

  1. I don't know anything about those cayes, but I do know that your sunset (sunrise?) photo is AMAZING. Thanks for sharing!
