Needless to say this place is worth a journey (even if you live in Asia!), however people seem to be picking sand dollars and other LIVE animals to take with them as "souvenirs", encouraged by tour guides to do so. I am not sure if these people realise that white sand is made from these animals and other corals which... More

This was snorkelilng at it's best with pristine crystal clear water and an abundance of sea life. The water is warm and the snorkeling is great for the whole family.

We have taken our boat to the Bahamas many times and this place is the best. Whether you are diving, snorkeling or just sitting on the beach, this place can't be beat!

What a beautiful park! A must visit if you are in the Exumas! Crystal clear waters and gorgeous views! We visited Rachel's bubble bath and it was incredible. Try not to go during low tie because you won't get as much of the breaking of the waves. When you do, though, you will be in a natural bubble bath which... More

If you go to Exuma, you must see the Cays! We had a one day trip (from 8 a.m. to 6p.m., you'll be tired but happy) and the landscape we saw was amazing. The ocean colors, blue sky, solitary beaches! We had great time!

We have been coming to the Bahamas for over 20 years in our Kadey-Krogen 48' NS Trawler, been many places and this is still at the top of our list! As we head north or south we always have to stop in and say hello, and enjoy the serenity of this special place in our world. The lobsters even know... More

Snorkeling the natural sea aquarium and the Rocky Dundas was beautiful with a variety of fish. We were also able to see sharks while exploring a sand bar.

Your only getting here by boat or Helicopter! We took our 61' and moored at one of the mooring buoys that is located inside the park. Read up on the park so you will appreciate it more. Dive or snorkel during mean tide and the current isn't bad. 3 Eagle Rays swam in harmony repeatedly near us and the fish... More

The day we had scheduled the tour was very windy, we thought it would be suspended but the captain assured us once we turned to the Cays the wind would stop. Well, that did not really happen but all the same it was an amazing although wet trip. We saw the huge star fish, went to the sand bar, to... More

The Land and Sea park is a great place to see some of the Bahamas wildlife. While camping on O'Briens Cay we had a 3 ft iguana wonder through camp and the snorkeling at the "aquarium" was fantastic (saw Eagle Ray, Green Turtle, many many fish). There are some house's within the park but mostly the islands are open and... More
