Hurricane Irma 2017

Here we go again....Hurricane Irma is skirting the SouthEast Bahamas over the next few days and turning up Florida.

Harbour Safaris has our boats secure. Storm surge estimated 1-3, preparing for the worst though. Anything over 8' and I have to evacuate inland to my office.

Stay safe anyone out there in Caribbean/Florida and a lot of help will be needed post this event. Keep us in your thoughts.

Hi Lee, stay safe and hopefully IRMA will not damage the ribs and you will not have to evacuate inland. So far we have seen on the NEWS a lot of destruction on many islands in the Caribbean and it is hard to us to comprehend just unbelievable.

All good here - Irma is now moving across Cuba and up the coast of Florida. God speed to those in the path.
