Great Guana Cay early October

We are planing to go to Great Guana Cay Oct 5th - Oct 12. I am aware this could be hurricane season but we are taking our chances. The owner of the house we are renting is wiling to to work with us. My question is if there is anything closed that we would miss. We want to chill and rent a boat for a few days but is Nippers open and still fun? Any thoughts on this time of the year is welcome.

You would get a lot more answers if you were to post your question on the very active Abaco forum at www.abacoforum.com. There is a "new members" board and a "main discussion board"- try the newcomers first and if you don't get enough help then try the main discussion board. I have never been that time of the year. We are headed to GGC in late June and have been to the Abacos quite a few times but always May-August.

Good luck and enjoy!

When we were there the bartender told us that Nippers only closes on Christmas Day, I believe. In other words, they don't close during the low season like some other establishments do.

All of our Out Island trips have been in either September or October. I guess we've been lucky weather wise. It has always been warm (the air and the water), less crowded, but not empty (except for most beaches which is a good thing), many restaurants still open, and so relaxing and fun! You will have a blast!

Grabbers and Nippers should be open. Not much in the way of commercial business on GGC to "close". Lots of places on nearby Cays do close from mid to late August thru October. It is a good idea to do your grocery shopping on Marsh Harbour before going over to GGC. I would def recommend Abacoforum.com!
