CROOKED ISLAND, BAHAMAS – In our brief visit to Crooked Island, our guide Marcia Gibson made sure we experienced the true essence of island life, introducing us to locals who call this beautiful place home.

One such local is Dennis Thompson, the dock master at Crooked Island Lodge and Marina, formerly known as Pitts Town Point. 

The lodge, owned by Cameron McCray from North Carolina, is a beacon for visitors seeking both adventure and relaxation.

And Dennis takes great pride in his work. During peak season, their 35-slip marina boasts a 90% occupancy rate, attracting avid fishermen from all over, most of them eager to catch the majestic blue marlin.

Adding to the lodge’s appeal is its private airstrip, making arrivals as convenient as possible

The marina is relatively new, just three years old, with recently opened villas bringing the total room count to 15, staffed by a dedicated team of 15. 

Yet, this stunning property holds a deeper historical significance.

And the owners have taken care to preserve its rich history, constructing the lodge around the original structure.

Dennis feels honored to serve guests in such a magnificent setting, seeing it as a tribute to the community’s enduring spirit and vibrant culture.
