What is the availability on Sundays for moorings at Cooper Island these days?
I have been watching Boaty ball availability and the Quart A Nancy webcam pics for Cooper Island for weeks now and Boatyball always shows full. What about FCFS availability on Sundays?
We have a trip planned for 7/13 and are looking to stay at Cooper on 7/14.
Can I get some realtime info?

Plenty of FCFS balls available right now at 12:46. You never really know. Just have a backup plan. Easy to head down to Peter or over to Marina Key or Trellis.

Are there FCFS mooring balls at Haulover Bay or would we need to drop the hook for the night?

Has anyone snorkeled or dove Hallover's bay (Haulover in St John?) lately?

Prior to Hurricane Irma, its coral was fantastic.

The Hurricane messed it up.
