Staniel Cay

We spent some time at Staniel Cay. One of the draws to this Cay is the Yacht Club with its restaurant and bar. We have eaten in the bar a number of times. Love the atmosphere.

The other big draw to this Cay is the Thunderball Grotto. This underwater cave is accessible at low tide for snorkelers and was used in the filming of the James Bond movie Thunderball.

The cave is lined with coral and is quite dark.

There are two openings on the ceiling that lets in light.

Lots of fishes too!

We really enjoyed snorkeling here. Now we need to go rent the movie Thunderball to watch for it.

Musha Cay

Musha Cay is a private island resort owned by David Copperfield. You can rent the resort (the entire Island) for a reported $37,000 per night with a 4 night minimum. We anchored near by and did some snorkeling.

Freedom at anchor

At low tide our keel was about 6" off the bottom.

There was a plane wreck near by. You could easily see it from the surface.

I called it the arrow plane

Nearby Rudder Cut Cay is also owned by David Copperfield. He placed a stainless steel sculpture in about 10 - 12 feet of water.

There it is. Can you tell what it is?
