Holiday Gift Guide
The holiday season is fast approaching, and you are not alone if it is sometimes difficult to find the right gift for your favorite boaters. With that being said, our team has hand-picked a selection of ideal holiday gifts for the boaters we love most!
For Our Friends who like Folklore and Fish Tales:
Walker’s Cay: Folklore, Fish Tales, Rebirth is a product of “the spirit” of Walker’s Cay. This book was crafted to retell the very story of the island itself, share the rich fishing history, and share the events that took place for the rebirth of the one and only Walker’s Cay.
For over eighty-five years, Walker’s Cay has been a legendary fishing resort known by anglers worldwide as a premier deep-sea fishing destination. The rebirth of Walker’s Cay, after a seventeen-year closure, is underway to welcome visitors who desire to fish, dive, and explore the beautiful reef surrounding this gateway to the northern Abacos.
This piece of literature includes three richly illustrated sections:
- Folklore: Chronicles the rich history of Walker’s Cay from the 1500s to the early 2000s, including a profile of the island’s namesake, Thomas Walker.
- Fish Tales: An anthology of personal stories from captains, families, staff, fishermen, and guests, showcasing their adventures and love for the rock, Walker’s Cay.
- Rebirth: A behind-the-scenes look at how Carl and Gigi Allen, together with the Allen Exploration team, are redeveloping the island to its former glory.
For Our Rum Connoisseurs:
If you're looking for a bottle of rum for your favorite boaters this holiday season to enjoy out on the boat, look no further. Our team has hand-picked some of their favorites.
Frigate Reserve Rum- a rum that blends a story of friends, legends, and history together to bring you one of our favorites.
"The Frigate, or Warbird, keeps its vigil over the ocean’s blue lens by day and night, making landfall only occasionally, maintaining its station as master seeker of the world’s seas. Symbolizing complete freedom within those thin spaces where sea and sky become one. Such is our choice."
“Life on the Wing”
Papa’s Pilar- an ultra-premium, award-winning rum inspired by the world's greatest adventurer, Ernest “Papa” Hemingway and his beloved boat, the Pilar. Papa was an author, explorer, story-teller, conservationist, bon vivant and Key West local who is celebrated for what he was not: a spectator.
