As sail dog would say, it's all good. Trip of a lifetime.

It's all beaten path. Some spots, during some periods, are more beaten than others. Don't expect to find a never-been-discovered spot. Relax and enjoy. You didn't say if you are on a boat and, hence, can change your position as desired.

Our first trip was 7 day charter and we did not see Anegada. Since our fist trip we now charter 10 days including Anegada. We have a more relaxed and flexible itinerary. Anegada is a must, Leverick Friday night BBQ/Jumbie Jost Van Dyke...etc. We all have many different places on and off the path. Its all an adventure....

Nobody goes to The Baths, Money Point, Sandy Cay, The Soggy Dollar Bar, Marina Cay, North Sound, The Indians, Pirates, The Willie T, or the full moon Party at Trellis Bay anymore because they are so crowded... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" />

Apologies to Groucho Marks, or whoever came up with that one first. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

I have accumulated a list from many suggestions over the years from TTOL folks, and others for snorkeling/diving locations, as well as interesting anchorages, some of which are clearly OTBT. I have a pre-done email with these lists - you (or anyone else) are welcome to email me at monk@madriver.com, and I'll shoot it right out to you.

There should be tons of suggestions and good input here on the forum, but I just thought it would be a good reference, as you gather folks' personal recommendations and experiences.

Get Frank's map - we love it and will be using it again next month. Great for finding the snorkel/diving spots!!
