Eleuthera in three weeks!

To say we're excited to be going is an understatement. Though my last bonefishing trip was only 6 short months ago to Christmas Island, it's been over two years since my wife and I visited the Bahamas (Andros). We'll be staying at Aqua Vista from May 14-24.

After much research on this site and others, I've got street turns and spots mapped in my handheld gps, and gear of course organized, and have now turned my focus to the more technical aspects. I'm hoping that those with experience can answer a few questions. I apologize in advance if these questions have been asked previously

Our general strategy during our stay is to try and always be on a particular flat on the rising tide travelling further from our home base as the week progresses. Thoughts?

Is there a predominant direction that the current flows on the east and west coasts? How does that change along more southeast-northwest orinted shorelines such as that from Lighthouse Point to Deep Creek?

There appear a number of areas worth exploring on the western shore of Windermere Island. Access appears to be over a bridge about mid-island. Is that open to the public?

As a rule, I understand that if you see a gas station keep your tank topped off. I've mapped the gas stations I could find; Kinky's and Carey's both in the south, Paradise in the middle, Gregory Town Gas mid-central, and the Texaco to the north. Are there specific operating hours that I should be aware of? Anything else I should know?

I like the remoteness of the Boonggy area. Is it worth checking out? Nevermind its so close to Deep Creek we'll probably go!

Is the Eleuthera Insititute open to the public? Seems like an interesting place to visit.

That's all for now. Thank you to all in advance for your help !
