Parking Problem At The Beach!

Miami Carnival, Ocean TraderMiami Mas! If you missed the Miami Carnival last week here is a wonderful photo that captures the Caribbean flavor of this South Florida annual event.  Every year the Carnival gets bigger and better.  We have one year to plan for 2014.    ©Photo By NKOSI

Cane Garden Bay, Ocean TraderCane Garden Bay in Tortola (Virgin Islands) is an outstanding anchorage in all regards except when there is unpleasant weather in the North Atlantic.  Bad WX up North will produce an uncomfortable swell throughout the Caribbean islands laying to the South.  Photo By oceantrader.co

Hazy Morning With A Sailing Breeze

Caribbean Garden View, Ocean TraderThis is a morning coffee view. The fishermen might wake you at a much earlier hour when preparing for a launch, but drifting back into a peaceful slumber is possible until the roosters clock in.  ©  Photo By oceantrader.co

The Magic Bus

Haiti, Ocean Trader 23Scout new and stimulating adventure travel destinations in Haiti.  This special place in the Caribbean offers another world of possibilities;immersion travel at its most intense.  When you make a friend in Haiti you have a friend for a life time.  Here is our blog posted last year when Hurricane Sandy was blowing through Haiti.  At the time many people thought the darkening skies were the result of just another tropical depression.  Read it, and other blogs from Haiti in The Haiti Page section of our website.  ©  Photo oceantrader.co

Virgin Peak To Oil Nut Bay

Caribbean Sailing 78, Ocean TraderIn Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda there is a very special trek that you must take. The hike up to Virgin Peak can be done gradually with refreshing sea breezes all the way.  Dinghy over to Phillips Bay near Biras Creek.  There is a superb little cafe there with a dinghy dock.  Turn left and walk the trail bearing to the right.  Follow the shoreline (on the south side) to the foot path that will lead you up the hill.  You might have to share the path with the goats, but when you arrive at the top you will be rewarded with a magnificent view of the south shore including Deep Bay and Oil Nut Bay.   ©  Photo oceantrader.co

Another Caribbean PTL Morning

Caribbean Sailing 56Back in 2002 Sarah Mae Swaggart sailed her clinker planked glassfibre sheathed sloop into Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda.  Much has transpired since that day.  Sarah now owns a business on shore instead of a boat.  She took this photo on her first morning in the BVI.  The anchorage is still gold to the many sailors that visit.  ©  Photo oceantrader.co

When You Don’t Feel Like Cooking

Caribbean Sailing, Ocean TraderA sailing vacation should flow with the whims and fancy of the crew.  It will also be a slave to the dictums of the weather.  One of the most enticing aspects of sailing and cruising in the Caribbean is the abundance of truly nice anchorages and world class beach bars and restaurants. When cooking interferes with your comfort level and you need to be catered to, jump in the dinghy and head for the beach.  Don’t forget your flashlight and dinghy anchor.   © Photo oceantrader.co

Every Day Sailable Vessel

Always A Decent Anchorage

Caribbean Sailing, Ocean TraderThe Marina Cay Anchorage off Great Camanoe Island remains a favorite anchorage for locals and visitors.  It can be a less than desirable location in a blow, but it is usually a stable and peaceful spot.  © oceantrader.co
