My favorite show on TV, currently. Airs on AWE channel.

I LOVE this series, and am even watching some shows a second time. I fell in love with sailing while reading The Dove, many years ago; though, I still haven’t been on a sailboat. Maybe someday.

Paul and Sheryl have so much fun, together, sailing, sightseeing in town and country — adventuring!!!

Bahamas – Distant Shores Sample Episode (Season 5)


Sailing adventure in the Southern Exumas! Paul & Sheryl first stop in the remote Brigantine Cays where they dive in a cave which is home to huge tarpon. Seeking shelter from an approaching “norther” they discover an unusual characteristic of starfish. In Cave Cay they meet a retired oil baron whose retirement project is to develop an environmentally friendly haven for boaters. In Little Farmers Cay they explore a cave and learn the importance of the mail boats to survival in the out islands. Their final stop is Black Point where they meet the artisans of the straw market whose weaving is crucial to the economy of the settlement.
