Compass Cay is one of my favorite places to sit back and relax in the Exumas. If you ever come here make sure you bring your camera and your mask. The friendly nurse sharks are what this quaint little island is known for. These nurse sharks are some of the friendlies sharks I have ever seen. They will just cruise past you and let you hold them and pet them. Also when the tide comes up and you are cleaning conch, you better watch your toes. Because these sharks will be just sitting on top of the dock waiting for some scraps. The beautiful scenery and Mr. Cliff's hospitality is what makes this place one of my favorites.

Justice for Rob!

PLease take two minutes out of your time and sign this petition.


Here is the story and what the petition states.

The events on this day (January 9th 2009) are as follows:
Roger M. Nicosia, D.O., while piloting his 41 ft vessel “Master Plan” at a 25 knot cruising speed, blatantly disregarded a properly displayed dive flag aboard the 36 ft vessel “Dykoke” and was convicted of violating navigational rules of the water, and we believe, Florida statutes 327.331 and 327.30(5). The Master Plan, driven by Roger Nicosia, M.D. struck SCUBA diver Robert Murphy who was floating on the surface, approximately 50-75 feet from the Dykoke and its dive flag, well within the 300 ft required by law. The propellers of the Master Plan severed both of Robert’s leg below the knee. After striking Mr. Murphy, Dr. Nicosia, thinking he’d struck “an object,” motored his vessel back to the Dykoke and floated 30 – 40 feet aft of the Dykoke’s stern and watched as the frantic dive crew struggled to bring a nearly fatally injured Robert Murphy back on board. At times, Rob’s lifeless body lay half in the boat, half in the water, blood tarnishing the water around him, clearly visible to all persons aboard the Master Plan. At no time did Dr. Nicosia or any of his crew offer to render aid in any form or fashion. Further, when questioned by 911 whether anyone aboard the Master Plan had the ability to render medical aid, the question was ignored and the topic of discussion was redirected. Further, the Master Plan, piloted by Roger Nicosia, D.O. sped quickly away from the scene of the incident leaving the injured Rob Murphy in the hands of his civilian friends who had zero medical training, to fight for his life.
Nicosia’s conscious choice to deliberately refrain from rendering aid or even disclosing that he was an emergency medicine trained physician, thereby shirking his duty to rescue, and further, fleeing the scene of the boating incident which caused the United States Coast Guard to search offshore for his vessel and escort him to shore, where Nicosia’s lawyer was waiting, not only violates Florida Statute 316.062, but it removes the unspoken trust that a Florida State licensed physician will help a fellow man in his time of need, and displays incivility and contempt unbecoming of a physician.

Dr. Roger M. Nicosia’s failure to uphold his sworn duty to the Florida Board of Medicine and his fellow man, is disrespectful and reprehensible. His actions before, during and after the incident would suggest that Nicosia is morally unfit to practice medicine in the State of Florida. His blatant and purposeful decision to avoid his ethical obligations tarnishes the meaning and pride associated with those physicians and citizens who uphold this promise daily. On January 9, 2009, Roger Nicosia was the one person with the expertise to assist in saving Rob’s life and he willfully avoided rendering aid. It is generally recognized that a moral or ethical duty to rescue arises where a person creates a hazardous situation, even when there is no legal duty to rescue. Medically trained persons have a duty to rescue other persons in distress by virtue of their common humanity, regardless of the specific skills of the rescuer or the nature of the victim's distress, even between strangers.
On behalf of myself and the others listed below, we respectfully request that you review the facts regarding this incident and agree that the imprudent behavior of this emergency medicine trained physician, Roger M. Nicosia, suggests he is morally unfit to act as a licensed physician in the State of Florida.


Please help bring justice to this scum bag.

Looking out the Oven rock cave in the Exumas. This canve travels for thousands of miles underground. It is so far that cave divers haven't even been able to probe to the end of it yet! Here is a link to some more Bahamian caves.

2010 Byerly Toe Jam rail set up

I was curios as to what kind of rails there would be for the Byerly Toe Jam this year so I went to go check out what kind of rails they are going to have set up for the toe jam. Some rails are finished and some are not. But it seems as though PVC is the material of choice this season!
