Highbourn Cay Sports & Outdoors: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Highborne Cay has the only marina in the northern Exumas. This is a small marina with 16 slips. As a visitor in the marina, you are able to walk around the island. There are electricity, water, fuel, laundry, b-b-q area, small grocery store, but it has no toilets or shore bathroom facilities other than an open air brackish shower. There is also no pumpout, and they don't want any discharge so boats have to go out and dump their holding tanks periodically. We bought fuel from them, and it is OK, but another boater bought fuel and his filters clogged up three times while he was getting it.
They will let you bring a dinghy in to the beach by the marina office, but boaters that are not at the marina are restricted from using most of the island and are charged for garbage disposal.
Equipment: It is also expensive – it has gone up to $1.50/$1.75/ft, water and up to 50 cents/gal for water. Laundry is $10/load (someone does it for you - it's not a self service thing). There is a 4% surcharge for credit card but they take (and would rather take) checks in US$.
There is a small store, and Janet of "Cool Runner" (which is the name of her boat) will bring food to the boat if you order dinner from her - call on the VHF.
