Congratulations, you made it to the Bahamas! Now there are over 700 islands waiting for you to decide where to go and what to do. After a month exploring the Abacos you get restless and start looking at points south—but when you check the charts for Little Harbour you grow a bit nervous, and it only gets worse when you hear horror stories of The Whale and Don’t Rock and Devil’s Backbone and Current Cut.

This class is for you, and John’s navigating strategies will help you no matter your direction of travel.

Take a bird’s-eye trip through the Bahamas, as you navigate from the Abacos to Eleuthera, Long Island, and Conception Island. Learn about Current Cut, Fleeming Channel, Devil’s Backbone, Cave Cay cut, and the Whale. Anchor inside Hogsty Reef and learn what you can expect in the Raggeds.
