A wonderful "out island" experience, Swain's Cay Lodge delivered on comfortable, clean accommodations, breathtaking surroundings, good food and great bone fishing! Although we used light spinning tackle rather than fly rods, our expert guide "Shine" put us on the fish -- we had an excellent day of guided fishing and enjoyed walking/kayaking the flats on other days. Ms. B was... More

My girlfriend and I went to Swain's Cay for a week in June 2014. We looked for a place that we could catch bonefish as well as spearfish. We certainly found it. I have fished for bonefish in many places, but this part of Andros is the best I have seen. My girlfriend had never picked up a fly rod... More

The hotel was clean, neat, & comfortable. The staff was very attentive. The location was beautiful. I visited with my parents (mid-60s) and my son (9 y.o.) - we all had a wonderful time. The hotel had bikes and kayaks for use (free), the beach was pristine, and the stars were fabulous. Highly, highly, highly recommend if you are looking... More

Our week stay at Swain's Cay Lodge late April/early May 2014 was amazing! From the moment we landed we received attentive and friendly service. Cheryl met us when we arrived, gave us a tour of the facility, introduced us to the staff and other guests (most of whom were other anglers). Food was good. Drinks were great on the beach... More

My son and I stayed at Swain's in March 2014 and had a fantastic time. Accommodations were perfect for us and staff could not have been any nicer. The fishing was excellent as was our guide. Plus we were able to wade right in front of the lodge and enjoy the scenic view.
