Exumas

We explored Allan's Cay and anyone that has the means to do so MUST go there too!!! It is quiet and beautiful and the iguanas are amazing.... This is my first trip to the Bahamas... actually my first sail.... it has been a lifetime experience that I will never forget... Does anyone have any great snorkeling sites for us while we are in the Exumas??? Also, I would love to hook up with other cruisers in the Exumas or near Nassau... We love the solitude, but also have some really great rum to share...

Kim and Ray

Good snorleling is easily found around just about any shallow reef. Check the sound side of the Cays, weather permiting. We like the beaches outside of the "pond" at Normans, Pipe Creek, and Darby. Darby is private, so check with the caretaker there - "Slim" and his dog "DJ" were in charge the last time I was there. The anchorage can get buggy.

BTW - everyone will know it's your first time in the islands if you call the islands "KAYs" - they're "KEYs"!!!

Anywhere in Allan's Cay is great for snorkeling; you should snorkel the sunken plane at Norman's too. But when you walk the beaches, be sure to watch out for "Dragon" traps. As a kid I spent hours digging holes, covering them with palm fronds and laughing hysterically as Iguanas (and the occasional tourist) stumbled in....

Other snorkeling spots

We spent this winter in the Exumas and thoroughly enjoyed it.
A little farther South is the Exumas Land and Sea park. Warderick Wells and Cambrigde Cay are GREAT places to stay and snorkel around.
Let us know how it goes.

Thunderball Grotto by Staniel Cay is a great snorkel, the Rocky Dundas are supposed to be really cool(they're exposed to the east and conditions weren't good when I was in the neighborhood), the Coral Seaquarium by Obriens Cay is good too, all three have dinghy mooring balls.

Bahamas internet

Last year dial up service could be had at Scorpios and Lorain's in Black Point. Ocean Cabin and I think the Yacht Club in Little Farmer's and Staniel Cay YC had access. In Nassau there are several i'net cafes around the straw market and Batelco offers free wifi in the cruise ship terminal. Chub Cay marina is wifi.

I'm sure G'town has access, but I don't go there.
