Begin your seven-day Bahamas adventure from the island of New Providence (Fly into Nassau), boarding BG and heading out for an afternoon of watersports and relaxing on the sundeck. First dive/snorkel at Goulding Cay. Pass your first evening by unwinding with sunset cocktails
Depart in the morning for Highbourne Cay, the ‘Gateway to the Exumas’. Once anchored, explore the white sugar-sand beaches and stop to free dive or snorkel. Visit the sandbar on the western side of Saddleback Cay for excellent sand-dollar hunting before enjoying dinner while you watch the sunset.
Head south to Shroud Cay, the northern most island in the Exuma Land and Sea Park. Here you can explore the creaks that are tidal pathways through the mangrove forest, acting as a natural nursery for juvenile fish, sharks, crawfish, and more.
Continue South to Waderick Wells, offering a protected anchorage, plus excellent elevation and nature trails. Visit the skeleton of a 53’ Sperm Whale, then enjoy a hike to Boo Boo Hill where the blow holes make dramatic howling sounds when waves crash against the islands
Next up is Compass Cay, a private island boasting beautiful sandy beaches, mangrove creeks and flats, rugged shores, tidal creeks and hilly vistas. A must-see are the friendly nurse sharks, who linger around the island’s own marina, while Rachel's Bubble Bath, where swells break and bubble over the rocks into a shallow bath, is also a major attraction.
Big Major Cay
No trip to the Exumas would be complete without visiting Big Major Cay, a small, uninhabited island with a protected anchorage and a unique collection of swimming pigs. You can also enjoy other nearby attractions such Thunderball Grotto, while excellent dining options are available at Staniel Cay Yacht Club and Fowl Cay’s Hill House Restaurant, both minutes away.
Full day of diving/watersports before heading north to New Providence.
Fly out of Nassau, New Providence.
