By Boat

From a distance, Highbourne Cay is easily identified by a 300′ telecommunications tower, visible from 12 miles out on clear days.

When making for Highbourne Cay Marina from the banks, a waypoint of 24°42.37’N and 76° 52.00’W will place boats a little over 2 miles west of the approach. There is a rocky shoal area stretching from about the center of Highbourne Cay in a westerly direction for approximately 1 ¾ miles. This is north of the waypoint. There is another shoal area running from Tea Table Cay (about mile south of the Marina) also in a westerly direction for approximately 1 ¾ miles. This is south of the waypoint. Because of these two hazardous areas yachtsmen are strongly advised to navigate to the waypoint from the west.

After arriving at the waypoint, set a course of 090° True until a small island with a white stake is visible, distance about 2 miles. Look for 2 triangular orange and black range markers on the shore of Highbourne Cay. With the range markers aligned one atop the other, the island with the white stake will be close on the starboard side. When the white stake is abeam, immediately look to the north inside the Marina and find 2 more orange and black range markers. When they are aligned one atop the other, proceed into the harbour.

When approaching Highbourne Cay Marina from Exuma Sound, a waypoint of 24° 42.00’N and 76° 48.50’W will place you about ½ mile southeast of the most southerly tip of the island. Steer west, aiming for the larger of 2 tiny islands, and look for 2 rocks south of the most southerly tip of Highbourne. The rocks will be nearly awash at high tide.

Estimate a center line between the islands that you are headed towards and the described rocks. Remain in the southern half, leaving the small islands on your port side closer than the rocks on your starboard side. You will be in 15 feet of water at low tide.

Follow the deep water channel around and bear towards the north. You may find it helpful to find the range markers on your starboard side just north of the beach and keep them astern as you head west before turning to the north into the Marina.

  16. America has been designed mainly because of migrants coming to this nation searching for a enhanced existence. A life of freedom with possibilities to build a ” new world “. Often times we do not know how extreme the waves of each of choices go. The federal government shutdown has a ripple effect on the economy felt by millions of Americans and small enterprise owners. America’s most important advantage is hope! The government close down is taking hope from Small Business owners. Set up on the concept that America could be greater and that we simply can be offered the chances that the Constitution assures. A guarantee which was made by this nation’s forebears, a cacophony of numerous concepts which has come together to produce the melting pot named United State. One must show your appreciation the hard work of the President to safeguarded our borders. But we could also question his methods. Definitely there could be no problem in keeping America protected. The anxiety is due to the technique that these efforts have concerned hard working company owners that are vying to be part of a budding economic climate. Get more information check out
