We spent three days exploring Conception Island. Driving is a rotating job around here. Young and old have to take their turn at the helm.
The anchorage was wonderfully flat with water as clear as tap water. We wouldn’t want to be anchored here in winds with any west in them, but otherwise “West Bay” is a wonderful base to explore the island. Hurrah has been here before and stood proud bringing us on our first visit.
On day two, we kayaked through the inner mangrove creeks. As I mentioned, we couldn’t make it through the creek entrance since the ebb was ripping out creating quite the whitewater. Instead, we beached the dinghy just north of the entrance and from the dunes saw this:
A quick portage over the dunes and we were off. We spent three hours paddling back and forth seeing many birds, sharks, barracudas and other fish, conch and this green turtle who checked us out a few times.
The flats are huge and have a lot going on.
Here’s our lunch spot. Most of this water is less than a foot deep.
