Why aren’t there more floating bars in the Caribbean? I mean it just seems like they are a focal point where ever they are. Take the Willy-T in the BVI for example, the thing is a magnet for the boating community. Why don’t more people follow that lead? Well someone else has in Antigua, take a look at D-Boat in this week’s Caribbean Wrap Up. It’s a little different than the Willy-T, but a grand time none-the-less I’m sure.

Enjoy the island escape Castaways!
