Clearing customs in the Exumas can be an expensive and frustrating process. Captain Leonard offers some good advice on alternative landings.

We cleared in after tying up at the Big Game Club, we got a ride in a golf cart to customs and is was done very smooth and with little effort. We have been to the Berry Island Club on Frazier’s Hog Cay, when Herbie was manager and Lincoln the chef and were not treated very well and were charged for everything!! Including $7 per load for washing clothes and the machine was broken!! We had to fill it with a garden hose!! Twice we gave over 24 hours notice for the restaurant and were forgotten both times!! When we ordered some supplies we got the Costco type refill (waaaaayyy tooo much) so hard to stow on a small yacht!! Needless to say, if you have to moor for a short time, it is a good place to wait out a storm, but I would move on as soon as possible, you will be a lot lighter in the pocket book if you don’t!! Everywhere else we went was wonderful. An even better place to go in the Berry Islands is Great Harbor, wonderful people and service!!
