Looking for a Castaway Cay nautical charm!!

Ok, so I wrote to DCL asking for THEIR nautical location for CC and I was told:

"Castaway Cay is located 26.05 degrees North latitude and 77.32 degrees
West longitude."

However, when you put it into Google Earth, it doesn't take you there, but to another island close!! But if you type in Castaway Cay it takes you there, and if you put the cursor over CC it seems that what they say is true!!

The reason for this is that when I was in Ocean City, NJ I saw the below charm, which was also made into key chains, bracelets, ect.

I am looking for a place to have the same charm made for CC's location!!! I have not been able to get a hold of the company that made the Ocean City charms yet!!

When I put in Castaway Cay to a mapping program, I get 26.093682,-77.53328 (vs. your 26.05, 77.32). When I then put in the CC coordinates I listed on another program, it takes me to CC. Yours take me to the neighboring island (as you experienced).

HTH.

Cool charm,
Dreams

I have no idea how much distance make's to a difference of the co-ordinates, but surely where you take the position from (i.e the dock, SB, the middle of the island, the undeveloped side) would all have different co-ordinates?

Yes, but... when you put in the coordinates the OP was given, it takes you to the next island, not another spot on CC.

Those coordinate's take you to the south of Abaco island on the way to Sandy Point.

These are the coordinates I got for the dock:
26° 4'40.57"N
77°32'21.16"W

Maybe someone on here has taken a GPS device ashore and gotten accurate reading's?

It is a very small Bahamian island at the end of the day, even how important it is to us, I'm guessing not so much to Google!

Streetview on CC would be really cool though!

Using this website, http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html, (hopefully i can post the site) I came up with these coordinates...

26.088074,-77.528114

Latitude: 26 Degrees, 5 Minutes, 17.0658 seconds
Longitude: -77 Degrees, 31 minutes, 41.2104 seconds

not sure how correct it is, but they are different than the ones mentioned above

hehe, that's the exact web site I used. Looks like we are extremely close in our coordinates. Now THAT would be a case that I think would support what Ex Techie was saying. We are probably both correct, on different parts of the island.

Dreams

ETA: Just plotted the coordinates I posted and those trekygirl posted. The ones I listed are just NW of the center of CC and trekygirl's are on the far east coast of CC. Both are indeed Castaway Cay.

That is an awesome charm! I didn't find an exact match, but there do seem to be some places online you can get something similar:

http://www.latitudelongitudecharms.com/
http://www.etsy.com/listing/72716741...e-hand-stamped
http://heathermoorejewelry.com/produ...amp-Directions
http://threesistersjewelrydesign.com...-necklace.html

It seems to be quite a popular idea! A Google image search brings up all sorts of latitude/longitude jewelry - charms, bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings - really cool! I found a site that does them for St. John's and St. Thomas - might have to order some as souvenirs for our upcoming Eastern Caribbean!

rescuetink where did you get that OC tag? I like that one a lot better than the other ones I see. The other ones don't print out the name of the place also. I would like to get one for CC and OC, MD as it turns out. So maybe they can get me one with MD on it. Thanks.
