January 25, 2017 Motor/Sail to Little San Salvador and seahorse

Today we sailed to Little San Salvador.  We wanted to spend a couple days fishing.  The southern part of Eleuthera is called the Whale’s Tail because of the way the land makes two peninsulas.  We followed the contour lines along the shore hoping to catch fish.  There is an area of shallow water between Eleuthera and Little San Salvador called the Bridge.  We followed the southern edge of the Bridge where the water drops off deeper.  But we didn’t have any bites!!

 Little San Salvador is a small island and is owned by Holland America Cruise line.  There is only one bay that is a safe place to anchor, and it is where the cruise ship passengers come to shore for the day.  Luckily, there were’t any cruise ships docked there when we arrived.  I guess we're not allowed to go to shore when they are here.
