Bahamas end of 2019 with an amphibian – seaplane

After the Searey excursion we stayed another couple of days in the Bahamas, at Stella Maris Resort on Long Island. From there we made some flights in the vicinity.

Stella Maris Resort was founded by German friends in the 1960ies. On the top is the resort, on the buttom left the Moonshine Bar, on the buttom right the Erna’s tidal pool, now unfortunately filled with sand.

One excursions was to the to Dean’s blue whole. It is the second deepest hole in the world and starts a few feet below sea level. Although on the east side of the island the sea is sheltered by a block of corals.

The blue hole is protected by a riff so the water behind is shallow. There was light wind and the take off run will be long enough.

We were also visiting the Chat ‚N‘ Chill® Beach Bar & Grill that is only reachable by boat.

After landings in the sea we had to desalt the plane which takes one hour.
