So it looks like we will go to Stella Maris early next year. Are there any good fly-in lunch spots around there? It might be nice to fly to another island at least one day while we are there.

I always got a cruising permit but never used it because there wasnít much reason to leave cape Santa Maria.  I still want to visit Hawks Nest on Cat and also Fernandez bay village both with adjacent airports.

Why not give Staniel Cay a try, short runway, but little bar on the island could be fun for a day trip.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I have never gotten a cruising permit, but I haven't landed there since, I think, 2014... is that something new?

Staniel is a nice spot and nice runway.  I think the cruising permit has been around for a long time but probably not everyone pays attention as it really doesnít matter.  Kind of like clearing customs outbound. No one cares if you donít do it. Therefore, itís often skipped. Bring some extra Krispy Kreme and/or a couple steaks for best results in the out islands.
