I’ve mentioned Petite Tabac in recent posts. It’s a beautiful island located just outside the horseshoe reef protecting the main anchorage of the Tobago Cays – a marine park which is part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Petite Tabac was used as the island where Elizabeth and Captain Jack Sparrow were stranded and Elizabeth burned his stockpile of rum in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
I had been on the island once before, so I knew we had to go again and take some pictures. We took a 360 panorama from the deck of Tahina in the small anchorage. Surprisingly, four catamarans managed to squeeze in there for a few hours that day. I had never seen more than two. We also went ashore and took some kite aerial photos, but you’ll have to wait a while to see the results of those (which will show up in Google Earth someday).
So, imagine yourself on the deck of Tahina and view this panorama. Make sure you zoom in (choose full screen too) and tilt your view up to look at the mast. Turn around to see the Tobago Cays, Canoun, Union Island, and many other islands and boats. (NOTE: The anchorage was choppy, so Tahina was bobbing on the seas. I tried to keep things level, but there are some stitching problems with the horizon if you look closely. Overall, I think it works though.)
