This is the last manned light house in the world. The lens at the top is amazing. I took some great photos from the top.

Sailed to this island and stayed a couple of nights. Lots of fantastic beaches and snorkelling. Lighthouse is worth a visit and a golf cart tour around the area was fun!

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.

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.
