Best snorkeling in the world on the world's 3rd largest barrier reef

The seated overlook is a nice place to take a stop and watch the Atlantic. Walk around the Abaco side in the water. Look for rays.

I am lucky enough to live with in kayaking distance to Fowl Cay National Park. No need to dive the snorkeling is fabulous. There are mooring buoys to tie your small boat or dingy. There is also a small shelter on one of the rocks in front of the reef built by the Bahamas National Trust. Great place for a... More

We (my wife and I) have been diving for some time (I got certified in 1971) and though the diving is not deep you will see more fish and big fish than you can shake a stick at

We were on a charter boat and anchored on the west side of Fowl Cay. The dinghy ride to the east side was a bit intimidating and you need to be careful of the waves. Take your life jackets. Once we got there we were overwhelmed by the beauty and accessibility of the coral and fish. Make sure you can... More

Tie up to the bouys and scuba or snorkel amongst the amazing reefs. An incredible array of different fish and corals can be seen without needing to dive to any depth. DO NOT FISH HERE!! It' s a little tricky to getbto some of the bouys, so buy the Abaco Cruising Guide and ask a local to point you in... More

We went twice, once with an outfit and once on our own. My husband, the diver, loved it and can't wait to go back. I am a snorkler and thought it was good, but not as good as Pelican Cays as there is less close to the surface.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quiet solitude. The staff was very accommodating, and warm. My husband and I spent 5 glorious days on the Island and in that short amount of time, I was calling each staff member by their first name. Warm waves of "hello" with a genuine smile always greeted us whenever we crossed paths with a... More
