“Eleutheria the bells are ringing” Lenny Kravitz

Upon our return to Nassau, we set our course for Eleuthera, 60 miles to the Northeast of New Providence Island. Upon arrival, we secured Elizabeth Jean at a marina in Spanish Wells and rented a car for a land tour to Eleuthera’s southwest corner. There, we enjoyed a guided tour of the inspirational Island School.  That evening near Gregory Town we enjoyed, dinner and lodging at the Surfers’ Manor.  We completed our whirlwind tour on Harbor Island, once the Bahama’s capitol.

Albatross outdid himself on this view of New Providence Island and the Exuma’s (to the picture’s left) and Eleuthera, the slender land mass to the picture’s right.  The image captures the shoal waters on Eleuthera’s western shore.

We sailed into Spanish Wells in the north east part of the island group and rented a car which we used to travel to Eleuthera’s southern tips.


Spanish Wells is home to the most productive Bahamas’ lobster fishing fleet.

The Island School, located on Eleuthera’s southern tip, teaches sustainability to high school children from  around the world.  Stay tuned for a more detailed post on the Island School.


Harbor Island’s waterfront boasts many well maintained colonial era houses.
