Below the property dock with the entrance to Calabash Bight on the left!!
9 foot draft can be carried into this incredible harbor right behind a protective bar that keeps the ocean swells out in any kind of weather tied to this dock that has 12 feet of water at the end of the T, with 5 feet close to the beach!!
For more sophisticated services, such as airport, doctors, attorneys & business, etc....it is a 20 minute ride to French Harbor or 30 minutes to Coxen Hole. If you don't have a vehicle, there are cabs at BJ's. Much of the time we coordinate a ride with one of our neighbors.
The neighbors in Calabash Bight are all very friendly & helpful. There are several American homeowners, at least 2 Canadian homeowners & everyone kind of looks out for each other. One couple runs a tourist/cruise-line-driven business w/ their 2-50' catamarans, from the bight.
There is amazing fishing, snorkeling, diving & spear-fishing right outside the entrance to the bight. Fishing licenses are not required for shore-line, flat or deep sea fishing. It is common to go snorkeling on the reef & have local Caribbean lobster for dinner.
