  • Advice on St. Thomas, BVI, Requested

    If you are familiar with St. Thomas marinas and moorings, let us hear from you.

    Hello Larry,
    Was wondering if you or anyone had any recommendations on marinas/mooring balls around St. Thomas (as a home base)? Looking for an affordable slip or mooring ball. We just arrived with our Lagoon 52 catamaran a couple of weeks ago from Portsmouth, Virginia to Nanny Cay, BVI.
    We had traveled with the ARC Caribbean 1500. We plan on commuting back and forth to Sonoma, California with four weeks hopping the islands and then back home for two or three weeks.
    Appreciate any advice and help,
    Sincerely,
    Steve Skolnik

  • Warning of Speed Trap, Thunderbolt, GA, AICW Statute Mile 583


    This warning of a speed trap is based on hearsay and it’s the first such we’ve had in a long while. However, a word to the wise calls for carefully watching your speed and wake through this area. If you encounter speed/wake enforcement in Thunderbolt, let us hear from you. Our thanks to Steve and Barb Sipe for this report.

    Have heard reports in the past few days of speeding violations being issued on the GA ICW around Thunderbolt, in the area of G33 to G37. Reports indicate LEO’s are stopping vessels for speeding/violation of no wake zones and issuing warnings and in some cases, citations with a fine of $1,000. No specific information as to the enforcement agency conducting the stops, either state or local, not USCG.
    Might be worth a mention on the site as a problem area.

    South Mills Christmas Parade

    Winter Treats for the Birds
    Sat, 12/10/2016 – 2:00pm
    Ever wondered what birds do in winter? Come find out about their unique adaptations for the cold weather. Many birds call the Swamp home in winter but aren’t found here during other times of the year, so this is a great chance to see some birds as well! We’ll make some feeders out of common recyclables and natural supplies. You can take your feeders home or hang them at the park. All ages welcome. This activity will be primarily indoors.

    Winter Solstice Night Hike
    Wed, 12/21/2016 – 5:30pm @ Horseshoe Road Access
    Celebrate the shortest day of the year with an after-hours hike! The Swamp is a completely different place after dark, but it is fascinating. We may hear or see nocturnal animals, such as bobcats, flying squirrels, or owls. Winter evenings are also ideal for searching for salamanders. The hike will be between 1-2 miles on flat, easy terrain. DO wear warm layers and sturdy walking shoes. Bring water and snacks if you like–insect repellent is suggested if temperatures above the mid-50s are forecast. DON’T bring headlamps or flashlights–special lighting will be provided.
    **This hike has limited spots available, so you must pre-register by calling the office!**

    First Day Hike 2017 at Dismal Swamp State Park!
    Sun, 01/01/2017 – 1:00pm
    Join us for a First Day Hike! In 2017, First Day Hikes will be held in all 50 states–be a part of something big! Bring your entire family and relieve some cabin fever or burn off some holiday calories. If you haven’t begun the 100 Mile Challenge yet, this hike is the perfect opportunity to do so. Whether this marks your first or sixth First Day Hike in the Dismal Swamp, we hope that you will join us for this traditional walk.

    This will be an easy hike appropriate for all ages. Strollers and leashed pets are welcome. Wear sturdy walking shoes, and bring your own snacks if you want them. We’ll hike the Supplejack Trail, which passes the remains of old, destroyed liquor stills from the Swamp’s past. The hike will be a little over a mile long, and we’ll provide the hot chocolate at the end!
