In April/May we sailed from Marathon to the Exuma, enjoying six weeks in paradise (if you exclude the tropical storms!). The beauty of the Exuma is beyond any description. Imagine... read more

In April/May we sailed from Marathon to the Exuma, enjoying six weeks in paradise (if you exclude the tropical storms!). The beauty of the Exuma is beyond any description. Imagine miles and miles of beaches surrounded by crystal clear blue water ... just for you. People you meet are exceedingly friendly and nice. No time, no TV, no iPhone, not... More

Took a tour of the Cays with Roberts Island Adventures. Excellent tour by Captain Will and First Mate Tatum. Lots of interesting and beautiful things to see and experience. Full fun packed day!

I just returned from a week aboard the Cat Ppalu ! Wonderful crew, great food, and super scuba diving ! When I tell my friends about my escapades [ diving with sharks, swimming in the open ocean on a moonlit night, and diving over "The Wall" , where the bottom is three thousand feet away ] , they're sooo jealous...

So beautiful! Highly recommend it. Never seen such sparkling waters like this and got to swim with nurse sharks.

We did two separate excursions and loved both. You really must do this if you are traveling to Exuma. You can see swimming pigs, iguanas, stingrays, snorkel, hang out on a sandbar, visit blue holes and much much more. The excursions made our trip. This really is the most beautiful place.

Steven was a wonderful tour guide. He made sure that we saw many of the sites the park has to offer. We stopped on a sandbar to walk around and have photos taken with sea stars. We went to two different snorkeling locations and once again he was very knowledgeable about the fish and helpful in identifying them. I would... More

So we took the Exuma Cays Ocean Safari. This included the swim with the pigs, iguana, site seeing, and snorkeling. While we were most excited for the pigs, it ended up being our least favorite part. In fact one of the little ones had a accident on my wife, she was not happy... The snorkeling was AWESOME. They have these... More

If you can make it up to that end of Exuma I would highly recommend it! make sure to bring snorkeling or diving gear.

The park encompasses many islands and includes several marinas and many anchorages. Several islands are private, but many more are open for you exploration. Nearly every island has at least one great snorkel spot. Warderick Wells has some interesting hikes. Shroud Cay has an interesting dinghy excursion through the mangroves and a spectacular beach (stunning, breathtaking, everyone in unison: "Wow").
