A little about our island...

Spanish Wells is really a small town on the island of St. George's Cay. Located just off the north end of the larger island of Eleuthera. Our main source of income is lobster fishing. The waterfront is lined with fishing boats which range in size from about 40-75 feet in length. The life of a fisherman requires that you must sometimes leave home for up to 4 weeks at a time. The fishing boats are equipped with freezers to store the lobster in until they reach port for sale. The fishermen use smaller boats ( 18-20 feet ) to dive from then catch the lobster. They are then taken to the big boats for freezing. Then the lobster tails are brought back to port for sale to a processor who then ships the tails to different countries. Spanish Wells fisherman pride themselves on delivering top quality lobster to the consumer. The people here are know all over the country for their hard work, community spirit, friendliness, and strong principles.

We are a small community but we are on the cutting edge when it comes to technology. You name it we have it. From computers, with the latest and greatest processor's, to high speed internet access. The island is a quiet getaway with all you need to keep in touch with home or the office.
