The island is wonderful, absolutely cannot me missed. Rent a kayak at big blue, and paddle out. Great snorkeling, saw tons of different fish, including puffed and cuttlefish, also saw sea turtles. Sadly, found someone's fully used disposable waterproof camera (on sept 16th)if you think it's yours, send me a message and I'll gladly mail it off

Took a boat from Blue Haven Marina with Caribbean Cruisin to get out to this wonderful sanctuary. In fact our guide Alex came out on the boat with us. We were all very impressed and felt this was one of the most interesting parts of our trip. We were sort of expecting a less natural setting - you know this... More

Little Water Cay is a small island off of Provo, is protected under the National Trust. There are several local guides who can take you there, you will see the TCI Rock iguana along the numerous trails that traverse the Cay. A must do.

You will need to take a charter boat (I'd recommend Barefoot Custom Charters) to get here but it's worth it. A beautiful deserted cay very close to Provo.

We took kayaks from Big Blue to visit Little Water Cay. It was a bit of a paddle but we found beaches that we had all to ourselves for hours. If your not much of a paddler you can also take the 1/2 day snorkel tours, though you then do not have the beach to yourself.

This island is really cool to see. There is Iguana's all over the place and also their dens, At the end of the walking path there is a very nice beach you can swim in to cool off from the walk. Found some cool shells and sea glass on the beach.

Loved looking at the indigenous rock iguanas...the 'sanctuary' was small, but there was a person there to answer your questions about the iguanas.

Stopped here for about 30 minutes on a snorkel trip. Nice little tour by a guide and plenty of curious iguanas. They just sit there and them run off. Beautiful beach here too.

We rented sea kayaks and visited the Little Water Cay. There are tonnes of iguanas living on this nature preserve and they are very curious of humans. You walk along a boardwalk, and if you want to hike through the brush a trail is provided which takes you to a nice beach where you can swim.

We had chartered a catamaran and had them take us here. In my opinion once you see a few of the iguanas it is time to venture on. The highlight of the excursion was Alex the tour guide. He is personable and knowledgable about the islands. He plays Rugby for the national team and is eager to share what he... More
