Kayaking, wind surfing, sailing, snorkeling, diving, fishing, tennis and golf can all be done while in Exuma. Boat rentals are availabe at Minns Watersports https://sites.google.com/site/minnswatersports/home, allowing you to get out and explore the numerous uninhibited keys, secluded beaches, sand bars, caves and blue holes. The turquoise waters surrounding Exuma are shallow and filled with coral heads and reefs. These shallow heads make for easy snorkeling. While you are at it, stop by Hoopers Bay and swim with the friendly sea turtles.
Guided day trips and excursions can be arranged to visit Big Major Cay where you can swim with the world famous swimmings pigs, Thunderball Grotto (where scenes from James Bond's "Never Say Never" and the movies "Splash" and "Into The Blue" were filmed) and Leaf Cay aka "Iguana Island" where you can hand feed the wild iguanas.
Exuma is known for having the best bone fishing flats in the world. These shallow flats attract world wide anglers who want to take a shot at the elusive "silver ghost". If deep sea fishing is more your style, then try the deep blue waters off Exuma Sound where Sailfish, Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Grouper, Snapper and Hogfish are plentiful. You'll rarely come back empty handed. A fishing excursion can be arranged with the local fishermen.
We will gladly make recommendations or offer suggestions at the time of booking.
