Ridiculous - Crooked Island (again)

A few refinements since this was posted a while back in the BIG thread... Details for Crooked Island w/ Acklins Day trips:

I've negotiated a weekly rental at Casuarina Pines, Crooked Island of $600 per week Sat-Sat for cottages with two double beds each.

Cauarina Pines Cottages

Our host Hylena will arrange rental cars for $60 per day, possible week. This should mean $15 per day each up to four; two cars if 8 people, etc. Still $15 / day.

Therefore prices are as researched (avail today):

OPTION #1 - the Bonefisher Package...

--- flight pkg ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
AA Bost to Nassau Fri Mar 18th 550.00 USD r/t lv 1:58p arr 9pm
Bahamasair NAS->CRI (Crooked Island) 210.00 r/t lv 9am arr 11am
(fishing by noon)
Bahamasair CRI->NAS lv 11:25a arr 12:40p
AA NAS->BOS lv 2:30p arr 11pm
-----------------------> Flight cost = $760 r/t door to door

--- lodging, food and car ------------------------------------------------------------
First night lodging in Nassau $50ea
Lodging for week $300ea / two people per unit w/ full kitchen, etc.
or pay less with added cot 3/per room
Rental car for week $105 ($15/day ea - 2 cars 4 people per car)
Food $100ea (600-800 shared for week)
$555 food, lodging and rental car complete
-------------------------> $555 food, lodging 2 per cottage, 2 cars

$1315 - total package for 8 nights (including Nassau)
(no hidden costs that I know of, this is everything)


Fishing with guides at one of the lodges (Greys Point, Acklins Lodge, etc.)
License for taking of lobster (they are 100ft away from the door) $20

*Each cottage sleeps two adults, plenty of room to add a third but at these rates why bother.

*There is a $4 ferry to get from Crooked to Acklins and these two provide 1000 square miles of largely unfished flats, perhaps the most ridiculously untapped bonefish mecca on earth. I plan on trying both islands.

-- background information ----------------------------------------------------------------
Lots of non-sponsor stuff but google 'crooked island bonefish'. What I see is a cut above and a still relatively virgin opportunity getting quickly discovered with lodges popping up quickly (there are several now).
