Furthermore Staniel is home to the famous Thunder ball Grotto where scenes from James Bond were filmed. Thunder Ball is one of the most magnificent snorkeling spots in the Bahamas. With several entrance and passageways snorkelers can swim in at low tide, and explore the natural basin whilst becoming one with the extensive array of beautiful fish.
After a brief ride north, spend the rest of the Day at Big Major Island. Home to the famous swimming pigs, Hog Beach is a must see. You will notice the wild pigs swimming through the surf to greet visitors. If you would like to feed them, be sure to bring some carrots or bread with you.
Day Four: Compass Cay
With only one full time resident, this small private island is one of the most unique cays within the Exumas. Countless people visit Compass Cay to swim with the rather friendly Nurse Sharks. Whether you’d like to snorkel or scuba dive it is the ideal place to encounter local aquatic life. If staying dry is more ideal you can climb Compass Peak, explore Rachael’s Bubble Bath Lagoon, or visit Crescent Beach, with water so clear boats appear to be suspended in thin air.
Day Five: Shroud Cay
Owned by the Exuma Land and Sea Park, this Island has an exceptional nursery dedicated to a wide variety of Wildlife. Clear blue waterways and creeks twist and turn through Shroud Cay, which can be explored by dingy or Jet Ski.
