After the high life of Nassau, you'll look forward to visiting the islands of the EXUMAS and the world renowned Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. An exumas charter will give you a quieter place with pristine beaches, turquoise water, and protected coral reefs for your snorkeling pleasure. The diverse population of fish, wildlife, and natural vegetation is protected within the boundaries of the park, which means nothing may be removed from the water or land.
First stop is Shroud Cay. Snorkel in crystal clear water before taking a kayak or small tender through the shallow mangrove-fringed creeks on the interior. Continue to the ocean side where you'll find a perfect beach all to yourself. Or take the yacht tender to the nearby, exquisite beaches at the Hawksbill Cays.
Next is Warderick Wells, where your charter yacht might moor near the park headquarters or stop at a more secluded south anchorage. The yacht's tender can take you to spectacular diving sites in the "Wide Opening" or south to outlying small cays. Snorkeling at the nearby coral reef gardens will reveal an abundance of lobster, huge grouper, and a myriad of colorful reef fish for an unforgettable experience. Take a picnic to a deserted beach. Spend the afternoon walking the cleared paths to appreciate the Exumas' natural diversity.
Then anchor at Cambridge Cay. Snorkel around beautiful coral gardens and picnic at more deserted white sand beaches. Finally, snorkel into the caves at the nearby Rocky Dundas where the stalactite and stalagmite formations are eerily lit by overhead holes in the rocks. Your charter yacht captain will know all the best spots to visit in the Exuma Cays
