If Hurricane Irene models are correct the next 24 hours will be a rough one for the good folks in Freeports West End.
Freeport is especially dear to us because we stage all of our Tiger shark diving operations from this wonderful island and from the West Ends Old Bahamas Bay Resort and Marina.
We made a choice a few years ago to have divers fly to the island and spend time at the resort to put back into the Bahamas economy, suffering from one of the worst tourism downturns in recorded memory.
This week the Bahamas will suffer another hit. Hopefully it will be a glancing blow from a Cat 2-3 hurricane and our hopes and prayers are with the people of Freeport and the local business folks who we have come to know.
Hang in there guys we're looking forward to seeing you all again in a few weeks.
Let us know what we can do to help!
