acklinsboy Not sure Charlie how they will resume. From experience they would be more interested in returning visitors home before and after storms. Too Acklins? Not sure. But this is no storm in the true sense, travel and fishing are interrupted!! Well that a major concern for all on this forum.

Additionally, I spoke with Acklins earlier, only reports coming out is that rains were moderate to heavy during the past evening, however today, it is most pleasant except for winds approx. 20 knots. Persons who can delay for a few days will do very well.

There is uncertainty, as Noel is still on a westly tract and has not begun the expected turn to the north, leaving many questions for all. Here on New Providence (Nassau) its all wait and see! Not much concrete plans can be made now. Last report I saw its over Cuba and will probably be down graded at least for the time being.

acklinsboy Bahamasair will cancell all flights at 12 noon today (10/30) and they are not saying when flights will resume. Ground staff will also depart at this time.

Flights will return when the weather permits, I'm told!!!! I don't see that happening before Saturday; 11/03. More than likely, the aircrafts will be taken out of the country.

Presently, on New Providence the weather is fine except for the winds; 25-30 knots. Business continues as usually, with the exception for those who have their hands in the public purse and have taxing authority.

The winds and liquid sunshine will cause some serious delays and change of plans, however, all will be safe and with the right attitiude, still have a wonderful vacation or work week.

This too will pass!

cc charlie Does anyone know what happens if Bahamas Air has to cancel a sheduled flight out of Nassau to Acklins due to weather?

A friend of mine is going down to Nassau today with a flight tomorrow for Acklins,if Noel screws up the flight do they go the next day or make you wait till Saturday?

kyhnau Ha ha
Omg, what an ignorant I am. I havent heard about that hurricane yet (media currently only covering the upcoming election in Denmark ).
Seriously I thought Noel was a member of this forum who was messing around Bahamas-wide.

Sorry about that Bob... Hope you'll have some nice days down there after all. How long are you staying?

thanks

Great, thanks Charlie...
Im in touch with Felton and has written to Vince as well.
Have a nice trip down there - look forward to some reports

Josko, do you mean Acklins or Bahamas in general? I'll be there in March, so believe its rather safe. Hurricane season runs june-nov AFAIK right?

josko Noel is already making a mess out of travel Bahamas-wide. Please, if you DO come down durting hurricane season, think in advance about how you will get off the islands in case a hurriucane blows through while you're here.

cc charlie Vince from Cattaraugus Creek Outfitters is taking a DIY trip to Acklins March 1-8. I think the cost is 1650 plus air. He's also a fellow member of this forum.

Feltons runs about 1850 with a vehicle. Of course you'll need food and petrol. His place sleeps 4 which would lower the cost. He can be found at vrbo.com, listing # 49576. Greys Pt also does DIY's Cost single is about 1600-1700 a week. They have a kayak or canoe and would probably rent you a veh also.

kyhnau Hi guys...
Im listening on this one as well. Heading for Bahamas in March and Acklins is on my radar. Im still in the research phase, and have not finally decided on the destinations yet. Felton's sounds interesting regarding flats in walking-distance. I havent been able to find much info about that place thou. Whats the cost level, Contact info etc?

Anybody else here that happens to be around in March?

Thanks alot

Bahamas Air has been quite good the past few years, seldom late except for weather, bags usually show up with the flight, but if the plane is full they will often send them the same day on a charter. Just let Rupert at the airport know you are at Felton's and he devlivers the bags. You shoud do well staying at Felton's, his SUV's are reliable as any and there is good fishing within walking distance of the house. It is also close to gas and the store in Spring Point. look me up when you get there if you need a pointer to some flats, or a guide for the day.
