ABACOS TRAVEL GUIDE: MADISON FREEMAN
Check out this fantastic write up about cruising the Abacos on our very own Sea Dove! 
This trip was truly one of a kind. Clinton's family has always loved doing boat trips. They have explored Italy, The Exumas, and even the Abacos by boat one time before this trip. It is truly a great way to see the multiple islands in one trip. Chartering a boat is by far the best way to see all that the islands have to offer. We chartered our boat through Cruise Abaco and stayed on the Sea Dove! This trip is perfect for you if you like to snorkel, explore, and if you enjoy the rustic island life. I asked you guys a few weeks ago to send me the questions you had about the trip, and I have summed them all up in this post! Happy exploring.
