Nothing like fantastic weather, wonderful people and the prettiest water you have ever seen! Make sure and hit Abaco Inn and have Daphne make you a great cocktail! And Tom Hazel is the best host in the Bahamas!

I enjoyed the whole history behind the light house. The view was great, the kids had fun climbing all the way to the top. Our captain was a native Bahamian and told us a lot of Bahamian history and story.

We anchored off the lighthouse and took the dinghy in for lunch and supplies. You can snorkel off the beach (other side of island than lighthouse) either by taking the dinghy all the way around or docking it and walking. The hike up the lighthouse...More

This beautiful Cay has everything you're looking for in a Bahamian destination. The town is perfect for walking through, beautiful beaches, access to the Atlantic and friendly people. Wonderful place to spend a week-end or a month.

This was my favorite island in the Abacos. Hopetown on Elbow Cay is what you think of when you want the classic Bahamian look, the pastel colored homes with the picket fences. And the Lighthouse gives it the Thomas Kinkaid feel. The people are friendly...More

I'm sorry, I did not see any place to rent fishing tackle but there is a place that did dive trips in town across from the ice cream store and next to liquor store.
