If you’ve been to our lodges before, you probably recognize that the photo above was taken on location at Andros South, our gig on South Andros Island in the Bahamas.
You might even notice the young fellow in the photo as well – That’s Mike Sanders, our general manager of Deneki Outdoors.
And, if you’re really observant, you might be asking yourself, “why in the world is Mike so bundled up?”
Well, contrary to popular belief, it can actually get cold in the Bahamas! Obviously ‘cold’ is a relative term (‘cool’ would be more accurate), but when a cold front rolls in during the winter months, temperatures can dip into the low 60’s or even into the high 50’s in rare circumstances. That might not seem very cold to some, but such temperatures can make for a chilly boat ride in the morning. Case in point – Mike is from Anchorage, Alaska, so yeah, he knows cold.
Therefore, we always recommend packing a light jacket or fleece – Even when traveling to the Bahamas! Packable synthetic puffy style jackets work really well and take up very little space in the process. In fact, your humble editor never travels any where in the world without one!
So, no matter where you’re headed, pack the puffy, you won’t regret it.
