re: Wrong location?

Unfortunately this seaplane base doesn't show up on the aeronautical charts at http://skyvector.com/?ll=25.761061845308774,-79.23504639034341&chart=301&zoom=1 and according to Wikipedia the airline that used to service this base, Chalk's International Airline, lost its flying charter in 2007 so it's possible that it's closed.

Wrong location?

I was trying to determine which hotel to choose based on it's proximity to the seaplane base. It appears that the marker for the base is in the midst of trees with no access roads. I expected the location to be near civilization at a marina.

I have used this airport once. It had no tie down ropes or chocks. You need to bring ropes. Services are very limited. They have fuel and customs.

This airport gets a steady flow of traffic every day. It is the gateway to the Abacos Islands. I have only used the Cherokee FBO which is very nice.

There are two FBO's. I have only tried the newest which is Odyssey. It is top shelf.

Ragged Island / Duncan Town airport

I landed at Duncan town on 2/26/2011 with a RV-6 aircraft. I was pleasantly surprised to see brand new pavement on the runway on its full length. Very nice people on the island. Check in with the Police station as you get there to stamp your Transire.

Silvertail restaurant is available on request. Accomodations can be arranged easily with Maxine Wallace 242-225-9641 or 242-344-1526.

Great place to free dive and relax.

P-3 strip

As VP-45 P-3 Aircrew I flew in several times. Last visit in a P-3 was interesting; #4 start valve would not open (even with a couple of whacks with a hammer) so the PPC did a runway high-speed run to spin-up start #4. As #4 started, he went to full beta thrust to stop before running out of pavement. Then taxi back with all four turning to pick up the rest of the crew for a ride back to Jax. Snorkeling there was great; it was just across the runway, and the fire department would give us a rinse off before getting back in pickle suits. Oh the days.

Expensive!

The most expensive place I have ever landed at. Landing fees, Customs fees (although we cleared Bahamian Customs earlier in Eluthera), FBO parking fees, very expensive avgas, fuel delivery charges, service fees for the FBO, VAT on everything.

Great Place for a Family Vacation

Flew here direct from Melbourne Florida. The airport is an old US Navy facility, now a civilian strip with customs and fuel by prior arrangement. Stayed at the Duck Inn - four bedroom cottage surrounded with orchids and fruit gardens. Rented an old (1960s) car from a local and toured Eluthera for six fabulous days. We will go back someday.
