CAptain's Mate of the Month

The CA's amazing APP CAptain's Mate is available exclusively and free to CA members. However, we're keen to share some of its attributes and first-hand knowledge & some 'as live' reports with all of our followers - members and non-members alike. As we dive headlong into 2020 we're delighted to bring you a new line-up of...CAptain's Mate of the Month! These are just examples of the hundreds of new reports submitted every month.


April 2020:

Bais Des Anglais, Martinique: Best phosphorescent we have ever seen. You could see the fish moving! We entered at high tide between Ilet Hardy and Ilet Perce. The weather was settled with a swell of less than 1.5m. The lowest depth we saw between the islands was 5m. Once past the islands the water was calm. You can anchor here or enter the bay by going over a bar. The bar has a depth of 2m or less. Doyle’s guide says it is soft mud but we saw rocks. The bay is lined with mangroves and is sheltered and peaceful.
