Explore the Exuma Cays with us on an epic boat excursion!

Full-Day Activities:

This Exuma Cays trip starts by leaving the main island of Exuma, from the Barraterre (bear-a-tare-ee) Government Dock at 8:00 a.m. and heading north through the pristine, crystal-clear tropical waters along the numerous small sandy islands referred to as cays. Great Exuma has 365 cays; one for each day of the year!

Many of the smaller cays are privately owned by Hollywood stars including Nicolas Cage, Johnny Depp and David Copperfield.

Another amazing highlight is a stop at Leaf Cay. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to view large iguanas. They can be intimidating at first, but don’t let their fierce, prehistoric appearance scare you. They’re really quite harmless and always happy to see people from our Exuma expeditions!

You’ll also have the opportunity to walk a sandbar. This stop is simply too beautiful for words.

Big Major Cay is the home of the famous swimming pigs! You’ll want to have your camera ready to capture a picture of these swimming swines and paddling porcine. They love their snacks of carrots, bread, crackers and such!

Thunderball Grotto is another Bahamian gem and definitely a memorable stop. When the tide is low, you’ll be guided along a Bahamas snorkeling adventure into the breathtaking clear water of the cavern where you’ll see many species of smaller fish. Radiant beams of sunlight stream through holes in the grotto ceiling to the cave’s hidden waters below, flickering and dancing in a stunning shimmering display in the silent, still depths. Exuma snorkeling is an experience like no other! 

We also visit our turtle friends and stop at Compass Cay to swim with the sharks (cover charge of $15 per person).

We’ll stop for lunch at a local restaurant on Black Point, with mouth watering native cuisine and cold Kaliks! (Lunch is not included in the price of the trip.)

Depending on the tide and the timing of the expedition, Captain Robert may have a few other delightful surprise stops during the return trip to Exuma. Beyond any doubt, this full-day trip will create memories of a lifetime!

You can expect to return to the Barraterre dock around 3:30 p.m.
