The pristine wildness of the place is one of the attractions, another is that there are hundreds of anchorages along the shore. Cruisers do not have to do any overnighters while moving from place to place. The water is warm, snorkling is good and fishing is great, as sealife has rebounded from the Japanese fishing era. There are few restaurants, bars and marinas in which to squander our childern's inheritances. Another compelling reason for cruising the Sea is that most of us are directed by our boat insurance companies to move north out of hurricane prone areas. It is possible to satisfy this requirement by heading to the northern part of the Sea.
We had one last rig check before leaving....
