Directions to Moore's Island

An archipelago within an archipelago, Moore's Island and its surrounding cays are situated northwest of Abaco.

One of the lesser-travelled family islands, Moore's Island was first settled by free blacks, plantation owners, and slaves in the early 1800's. The island's popularity didn't face any significant changes until 1932, when a Category Five hurricane destroyed Abaco's Bluff Point, forcing the local residents to relocate, moving to Moore's Island. Today, the residents of Moore's Island rely heavily on the sea and fisheries industry for their livelihoods; locals take pride in their fishing, bartering, and navigational abilities.

The industry plays an important role for tourists, particularly those interested in a fishing challenge. The island and its surrounding water are known for attracting sport fishermen, who travel great distances to grapple with the country's notorious bonefish.

Accommodation at Moore's Island is limited, and most sport fishermen find lodging at other islands. However, for those keen to stay put, the Moore's Island Bonefish Camp provides on-site accommodation along with experienced guides. Transportation to Moore's island is limited to private or chartered boats.
