Prepare to zip around these turquoise seas on your onboard water toys, enjoy world-class diving and snorkeling, and have a genuine sense of adventure with your skilled crew.
Day 1 - Nassau to Shroud Cay
Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park is a must-see attraction. Amazing snorkeling, sea kayaking, hiking, and remote white sand beaches are all part of the protected habitat, which spans more than 170 acres.
Shroud Cay, the most northern cay in the park, is renowned for its naturally occurring lazy river, known as the “Washing Machine,” excellent local diving, and enjoyable treks. The deserted cay also has a number of fantastic beaches.
Day 2 - Norman's Cay
Located at the northernmost point of the Exuma chain in the Bahamas, Norman’s Cay is a tiny island with only a few hundred acres. It is a small island with a soul and a history that defy its size.
Visitors can unwind at MacDuff’s restaurant, which offers Bahamian cocktails and specialties and has a rustic chic aesthetic.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a big-catch fisherman or a sunbather—Cay Norman’s has it all.
Day 3 - Pig Beach & Thunderball Cave
During your journey in the Bahamas, captivate yourself with the renowned swimming pigs on Pig Island. The beautiful pigs that swim in the sea at Pig Beach are one of the top attractions in the Bahamas. There are many fascinating tales about how these pigs wound up on a Bahamas beach!
Day 4 - Staniel Cay
Staniel Cay is a small enchanting island situated at the center of an archipelago of 365 islands known as the Exuma Cays.
For those seeking a little more action, Staniel Cay provides a range of sports like snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding, in addition to sun-filled leisure.
Day 5 - Allen Cay & Iguana Beach
Allen Cay, also known as Iguana Island, is the place to see a “mess” (a gathering of iguanas).
At the far northern extremity of the Exumas chain, there are three tiny, deserted islands collectively known as Allen Cay.
Allen Cay, the largest island, is surrounded by stunning beaches. Directly south of it is the horseshoe-shaped Southern Allen Cay, to the west is the long, narrow, beachless Leaf Cay.
Day 6 - Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park
The first land and sea park in the world, as well as most successful marine park, is the 176 square mile Exuma Cays Land and Sea National Park, which was established in 1958. It is the first reserve in the larger Caribbean region, where all fishing is forbidden. This area of pure sea, land, and beaches is a wildlife refuge and ecological preserve known for its stunning marine environment. It is an excellent site to snorkel and scuba dive.
Day 7 - Highbourne Cay
This privately owned island is only 35 miles southeast of New Providence.
One of The Bahamas’ best-kept secrets is the eight beaches of Highbourne, which are all desolate islands of paradise that can all be reached on foot from the Marina.
