Where has all the water gone?

Exploring the shallows of the Exuma Islands near Staniel Cay we visit the Swimming Pigs and beach the boat on a sand bank in the middle of nowhere! Check out the YouTube below.

We also discuss the calculations for how to beach the boat safely. You need to figure the low tide and make sure there will be enough water at the next high tide to float again. In our case we plan to drop back to anchor for the night and it will be just after sunset so should be an easy operation.
