Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park Adventure
Rachel’s Bubble Bath
A short walk to the lagoon on the north end of Compass Cay that borders Conch Cut, an “inlet” from Exuma Sound, and the southern boundary of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. Here we will relax as the waves from the Exuma Sound break over the rocks and cause froth on the surface similar to a bubble bath.
“Rocky Dundas” is an ancient, hidden cave in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. The cave is only accessible by swimming under a partially submerged ledge that will lead you to this enchanted, large open cavern. Ancient stalactites reach down from the ceiling and stalagmites rise up from the floor to greet them. The entire interior of this cave is covered in rich, colorful algae. There is little known history on this natural phenomenon, however being protected in this national park, it remains in it’s pure, pristine state.
Shroud Cay Sandbar
We will stop and enjoy this sandbar just off of Shroud Cay that is one of the most pristine sandbars in the Exuma Cays!
Pablo Escobar’s Drug Plane & Normans
n 1978 Pablo’s smuggling point man Carlos Lehder gradually began taking over Norman’s Cay from the locals by purchasing small portions of the island. Shortly after, Lehder hustled them out for a full-scale commandeering of the property with the guise of using it as a strategic point for drug runners to rest and refuel on their way to the United States from Colombia.
The wreckage of one of Pablo and Carlos’ plane, a Curtiss C-46 Commando, lies just off of the cay in shallow water. We will anchor the boat and snorkel the most famous plane crash in the Bahamas.
Afterwards we will head on over to the island itself and grab lunch at Mc Duffs Restaurant which is one of the best Restaurants in the Exuma Cays.
