Conception Island

02 March 2015 | Long Island, Bahamas

We pull up anchor from George Town just as the Cruisers regatta was getting into full swing. Very likely a tonne of fun but we’d been stationary for far to long. With the weather being uncertain Conception Island was the destination. Well off the grid, this Island is due east of the Exuma’s about 40 NM out in to the Ocean. Reportedly the second Island visited by Columbus during his maiden voyage to the new world.
It is definitely a world apart from George Town. It’s a park Island ringed by incredible beaches and rugged cliffs with the interior being mangrove swamp filled with turtles, fish and nurse sharks. There are miles of reef and hundreds of coral heads to dive on. The water is the clearest we’ve seen so far. Easily you can see down 50 ft. We anchored in 20 ft and our anchor was clearly visible on the bottom dug into the white sand right beside a 4 inch sand dollar. 3 days of exploring had us in awe and even though the weather was changing and forcing us out of the unprotected anchorage. We were all in agreement that a return trip would be required.
A couple high lights include swimming in the anchorage with a wild dolphin. Literally swimming beside this beautiful creature, 15 ft away for several minutes, another 3 shark day and lots of turtles.
I also caught a 44 inch Mahi Mahi on the way there. Very exciting for me and I finally have a picture to prove it. We ate fish for days. Currently we are in Thompson Bay, Long Island, waiting out the weather and provisioning. More to come about this crazy place soon.
