Chub Cay Marina

We arrived at Chub Cay March 20th and we are leaving Saturday morning for Bimini.  While here we enjoyed the pool met new friends and old friends La Rive Bob and Jane we met in Mackinaw City, Charlevoix and on the river.  Went for drinks and story telling.

Bill and Nancy on Moon Dance and we shared a golf cart and had a tour of the island by one of the workers.100_8570 (2).JPG

Lots of construction going on as well.  They recruit people from other islands who are well respected and everyone has a job.  They also have lodging for them and do everything  as well as furnish their lodgings.  They do not take married couples singles only and they make good money.

They have 4 big generators and make all their own fresh water.  Only one generator is being used for the whole island at this time.

Next we visited the Blue Hole now I did not realize they had one on this island they do not know how deep it is but they get fish, shark, rays, and everything comes into this pond and then disappears again.  Several caverns into the ocean.

Now the houses shown above are rentals $800.00 for one bedroom per day, 2 bedroom are $100.00 to $1500.00 per day.  Not cheap but it is a nice marina.  The fishing season is on and we are amongst boats 2000 feet to 60 feet the smallest.  So we are tiny compared to some of these boats.
