(Pics/Videos) Island Hopping in the Exuma Cays

Flying to the Exuma Cays, has been one of the most exciting and rewarding trips yet, becoming a pilot. Hopping between islands with good weather and the freedom to explore something new each day, is really deep in the dna of the pilot spirit.

This trip has been incredible. The last few days we based ourselves on the big island of Exuma near Georgetown, which had great line service for 100LL, a nice fbo and our beach home. Each day we'd drive ourselves over to the airport, preflight, jump in the plane for a nice flight to a new island and small landing strip. We tried Little Farmer's Cay (2500'x75') and saw the landing strips for Rudder Cut Cay, Cove Cay, Staniel Cay, Norman's Cay, all the super private ones and it goes on and on.

We love this place and today we are off to Eleuthera for the pink beaches and then home to USA.

Some pics below of the landing at Little Farmer's, the swimming pigs at Staniel Cay, the nurse sharks at Compass Cay, diving for conch and then eating it ceviche style on the boat. We also saw the Rock Iguanas on Leaf Cay and swimming to the Thunderball Grotto. There's a lot more but.. I should really get off the computer now!

See more images here and full report later in the week!
