Welcome to Compass Cay Marina,
Nurse sharks sleep on the dock. Hundreds of bonefish drift like a living quilt between the pilings. Yellowtail and mangrove snapper, jacks, angelfish, puffers, grunts and grouper graze in their midst. A barracuda lazes like a log in two feet of water. Mullet and needlefish cruise by over the pure white sand. The sun creeps over the palmettos, the jumbay trees, the seven-year apple trees and the wild tamarinds on the bluff behind the harbor. Its rays strike the simple shed that serves as an office, and on which a hand-painted sign reads, "Welcome home to Compass Cay."
