Green Turtle deepens

Sep 24, 2013 by Guest Writer

Dredging work at the Green Turtle Club in the Abacos began in late August. When complete, the channel entrance into White Sound will be 10 feet at low water. The controlling depth across the harbor is now 7 feet at low water.



Plans are under way to deepen the marina with plan to add a few finger piers. The project is being paid for by the Green Turtle Club and the Bluff House Resort & Marina. Green Turtle Club will re-open from this seasonal maintenance closure on Oct. 25 in time its annual Halloween Party.



In related news, with a deepened channel on the horizon, Green Turtle has been selected to host the second leg of the Bahamas Billfish Championship, to be called the Green Turtle Cay Championship, from May 21-24, 2014.



Green Turtle is a Guy Harvey Outpost Resort property. For more information, visit www.guyharveyoutpost.com.
