As the weather heats up, so do the competitive fishing tournaments in the Abacos. The arrival of the summer means the Black Diamond Series is quickly approaching. If you don’t already have a trip planned to attend the tournament, you can catch a flight to Marsh Harbour with Air Unlimited that will get you and all your equipment there in about an hour.
The Abaco Black Diamond Series is a three-part fishing tournament that kicked off on April 18th and goes through June 2nd. The first part of the series is the White Marlin Roundup, timely named for the end of sailfish season and the beginning of blue marlin season. This four-day tournament gives fans and teams the chance to view the competition in real time through CatchStat.com’s live scoring and get more information on the teams through ReelTimeApps.com. Competitors take off from the Abaco Beach Resort marina each morning.
A few weeks after the White Marlin Roundup, the second leg of the Abaco Black Diamond Series kicks off again in Marsh Harbour. The Shootout – Production Vs. Custom takes place from May 16th through the 19th. This tournament sets up teams to compete on their custom or production boats. Teams must participate in all three legs of the tournament to qualify for the winning prizes, which include cash for the first prize team and custom championship rings designed by Mark Lloyd of the renowned Vanmark Jewelry Designers of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The last leg of the Abaco Black Diamond Series is the Abaco Beach Blue Marlin Tournament. This tournament kicks off on May 30th and lasts until June 2nd, giving the competing teams one last shot at winning the series.
Some teams will travel to the Abacos on their own fishing boats, but for those teams that are meeting their boat and captain in the islands, Air Unlimited is the best option for safe and reliable travel. Less time traveling means more time fishing, so book your flight to Marsh Harbour today!
Did you know that every ten minutes someone is added to the national transplant waiting list? With so many people waiting for a lifesaving match, it is crucial that the organ being donated is delivered to the person in need with the utmost care and as quickly as possible. April is National Donate Life Month, but Air Unlimited participates in the organ transportation donation process year-round.
While waiting for an organ that could be a match is one of the biggest challenges of the organ donation process, many people may not realize the right organ could become available at a moment’s notice anywhere in the country. Then the struggle becomes getting that organ to the donor in need quickly. This is where pilots like those at Air Unlimited are called into action.
The team at Air Unlimited goes above and beyond their 9 to 5 jobs to help save lives. Pilots have made themselves available at all hours of the day and night because of it. The team never knows when they might get a call saying that there was a terrible accident, and a liver is now available for the next person on the national transplant list. Co-founders Chick Gregg and Mark Neubauer know when the phone rings in the middle of the night, their quick actions could help save a life. They have jumped at the opportunity to fly wherever is needed, usually transporting a team of doctors and technicians or sometimes just transporting a cooler containing an organ on ice – the crucial piece for the patient eagerly awaiting it. The reality is grim, but the outcome can be immeasurable.
Over the years, Air Unlimited has worked closely with Florida Hospital’s Transplant Institute, regional hospitals, and other agencies to complete dozens of organ transportation flights right here in Florida. Whatever the call of duty, whether it’s flying a family to an island vacation or flying an organ to a patient in need, the pilots at Air Unlimited take pride in every single flight.
Tax season is almost over, and many of you have already filed and are waiting for that wonderful moment when you receive your tax refund from the IRS. The average tax refund is over $3,000, according to the IRS. Some people have plans for how to use their refund, or have one big purchase to use it towards. If you’re still looking for the best way to spend your tax refund, look no further than a flight to Marsh Harbour.
You can’t go wrong with a vacation in Marsh Harbour If you’re looking for a luxurious experience you’ll find it at The Abaco Club on Winding Cay. This members-only property provides the amenities of a dream vacation. This kind of vacation comes at a higher cost, but, luckily, Air Unlimited can provide an affordable luxury flight to Marsh Harbour. Saving time and money on the way there will get your vacation off to the perfect start.
The Abaco Club has many different memberships to fit everyone’s needs. There are options available for residents, home owners from the states, and a more casual membership for visitors just looking to rent properties short-term for a vacation. The bulk of the members are home owners who visit often or live there permanently. There are cottages, homes and cabana-style one bedroom homes available for rent for anyone looking to get out of town and enjoy the Abacos for a few days.
At the Abaco Club, everyone can find a way to relax and enjoy the ambiance, but golfers especially get a unique experience there. Nestled right next to the mile private shoreline of the Abaco Club is an 18-hole Scottish-style links golf course. It was designed by Donald Steel and Tom Mackenzie and developed by Peter de Savary. For those who don’t follow golf news, these men have worked internationally, designing some of the most interesting golf courses in the most exquisite locations. The course at the Abaco Club is a 7,182-yard course with a par-72 championship layout. Members can enjoy the sport, as well as the bits of nature the designers incorporated throughout the course. It creates a whole new experience for golfers.

There’s nothing worse than getting ready to leave on an amazing vacation and looking into your dog’s sad puppy eyes as you close the door. Many pet owners are faced with boarding their pets or hiring someone to pet sit in their home while they are gone. Boarding comes at a high cost and has many risks for your pet. Hiring someone you trust enough to come into your home can come with even higher risks and a higher cost. Air Unlimited believes that if you want to take your pet on a flight to the Abaco Islands, you should be able to. Flying with your pets can be a stressful experience, but not with Air Unlimited. Our employees are pet lovers themselves, so they go above and beyond to treat your pets like their own. Pets don’t get stowed in the cargo area or overhead bins when they fly with Air Unlimited. Instead, they get to fly in the cabin next to their owners so they can enjoy the ride stress-free. They are treated with the utmost care, and many places in the Abacos have the same standards.
The best option for pet-friendly lodging in the Abacos is renting a home through Airbnb. You get the comfort of staying in a house and the convenience of being able to walk your dog in someone’s yard, instead of resort property. This also gives wary dogs the privacy to bark as much as they want without disturbing neighbors on the other side of the walls. Another option, similar to renting a house, is to stay at the SeaSpray Resort & Marina. It is home to two bars and restaurants, as well as Bahamian-style rental villas. You have the choice of staying in a variety of oceanfront villas with views of both the Atlantic and the Sea of Abaco. The villas offer more than enough room for a full house plus a furry friend. If you’re not sure if a hotel allows pets, just give them a call. They are happy to work with customers to give them the best Abaco experience.
Almost every restaurant in the Abacos has outdoor seating. With water so blue it seems unreal and sunsets that look like they’ve been pulled from magazines views as beautiful as the Abacos, why wouldn’t you want to be outside? Luckily, this means that your dog can tag along for lunch. Coco Beach Bar & Grill is the perfect place to grab a Bahamian drink and local grilled favorites. This casual outdoor venue leads right onto the beach and has picnic tables, lounge chairs, plus kayak and banana boat rentals. Overall, if you’re traveling with a well-behaved pup, you’ll be allowed on any patio.
Let Air Unlimited give you and your pet the island travel experience of a lifetime. Be sure to call Air Unlimited at 407-585-4300 before booking your ticket to reserve a spot for your pet.
