An uninterrupted 80-mile stretch of contrasting coastlines gives Long Island its name and a distinct landscape. With the rich blue Atlantic Ocean on one side and the turquoise Caribbean Sea on the other, there is more than enough to keep any boating enthusiast enraptured. Whether you arrive by yacht, sailboat, or small boat, you can dock at two full-service marinas: Stella Maris Resort in the north has 17 slips; Flying Fish Marina, located in the south, has 22 slips. There are also two other facilities offering dockage, and passing boaters can anchor safely in bad weather at Salt Pond Harbour. If you don't have your own vessel, arrangements can be made through the marinas and resorts for half or full-day crewed charters. The annual Long Island Regatta, second largest in The Bahamas, is the island’s featured event. Class A, B and C sloops race, some of which are built right on the island in the settlement of Mangrove Bush.
