Cat Island Trip Report: May 24-31 2013

My wife and I have been to Eleuthera several times but wanted to try a different out island this year. We were looking for something even more deserted than Eleuthera and Cat is advertised as a seriously laid back place that everyone calls “the real Bahamas” so that sounded about right for us.

We have stayed in private rental homes in Eleuthera as compared to a resort type setup and wanted the same for Cat. After some internet research we decided to book the Poodle House which is just outside of Port Howe on the south coast. The owner, Bruce, was great to work with prior to our trip so we had a good feeling about the accommodations.

I did my best to take notes along the way so I could put together a detailed trip report, and will probably bore many with same detail, but I know that information about Cat is hard to come by and the Cat Island TA Forum is not the most active place.

Hi Virginia Box, it looks like we will be coming from the same area of Va from Va Beach. After 3 months plus of researching, I am certain Cat Island is exactly what we are looking for in solitude and local culture. My thoughts are where to start. We will be looking for Jan or Feb 2014 for 10+ days. My question is where to start? Book the Tail wind now? Book Orf to Nassua--cost about $450. Especially with the promotion to fly free from Nassua to Cat Island. Should I involve a travel agent? I'm just hesitant to know where to start first. Any feedback very welcome.
