We took a 2 hour jet ski tour there. It was quite wonderful. We tried to do a little snorkeling there but the tide was a little to low.

Great little island for seeing hermit crabs and snorkelling with the fishes. The Jetski part was fun (half hour out, half hour back), the snorkelling a little short on time. On the return you take a lovely trip thru lucayan harbor and pass the homes of the rich and famous .

We took a day-long boat tour with Shalton (who is AWESOME! You can reach him at 242-441-5379 or 242-441-6704 for his Heaven & Earth Tour) to Peterson Cay. He speared fish while we were snorkeling then took us to Peterson Cay. We snorkeled and wandered around the small island while he prepped the freshly caught fish and cooked it for... More

Going to Peterson Cay is going to heaven! Fantastic place for snorkeling with large variety of fish and corals. One can get there by boat or kayak excursion. I like to go there with friends. After snorkeling we have a picnic and open a bottle of wine. Highly recommended!

Went there as part of an excursion. Island is spectacular full of diverse fishes, corals, we even got to see a nurse shark. We also took another snorkeling tour the day before and the island was dirty which made me upset. Thats why im giving Peterson Cay and all the ppl who keep it clean 5 stars ;)

Went here on an kayak/snorkel excursion. Had a wonderful time. Water was crystal clear, and saw many different kinds of coral, conch shells, sea biscuits and fish (even saw 2 baracuda). The east end's water is a little rough, but if you stay more north it is very calm. I would definitely do this again!

this is a small island or atoll. Have to get there by boat, or kayak. A perfect place for a picnic or a long nap.

This little cay is spectacular. There is not much to it but the views are awesome. Beware of the birds. They nest here and don't like intruders. Watch your feet for thousands of hermit crabs.

Not much to do, but the water was great as we went out on a jet ski trip. Lots of hermit crabs walking around all over the area
