Little Farmer’s Cay

 

Take a Staniel Cay Adventures Tour to Little Farmer’s Cay . This tiny cay has a population of 66.

Little Farmer’s CayLittle Farmer’s Cay is also home to abundant wildlife, including exotic birds, sea turtles, dolphins, sharks and tropical fish. Deep sea caves and coral reefs are nearby for world-class diving and snorkeling.

Little Farmer’s is located on the banks side of the southern Exuma Cays just 20 nm south of Staniel Cay. It’s easily reached from either the south or north on the banks side. Farmer’s Cay Cut offers access from Exuma Sound, but use caution in this cut. It’s wide, deep and easy to read, but a large swell from sustained easterly winds against an ebb tide can make it a rough ride. The currents are also quite strong.

Located just south of Big Farmer’s Cay, this stretch of pure white sand emerges from blue-green water at low tide. It is widely known as the “Mile-long Sandbar” and is perfect for shelling, sunbathing, and picnicking. You will have it all to yourself on most days!

Little Farmer’s Cay

Here at Little Farmers Cay is where you will swim and be able to pet wild sea turtles. The turtles come into the bay because of the locals that clean conch in the water and have become so accustom to the locals feeding them conch that now they let most people pet them. (As long as you have a snack for them)

The Sandbar

Located just south of Big Farmer’s Cay, this stretch of pure white sand emerges from blue-green water at low tide. It is widely known as the “Mile-long Sandbar” and is perfect for shelling, sunbathing, and picnicking. You will have it all to yourself on most days!

The Fountain of Youth and Oven Rock

Oven Rock is a lone standing pinnacle of limestone rock that has an opening that is eerily similar to an Oven. It is topped with a large Osprey nest that is sometimes occupied by an Osprey and its young.

The Fountain of youth is a freshwater pond inside of a cave system and legend has it tasing a dip in this pond will give you eternal youth!

Whale Tale Tour

Swimming with Sharks

This educational tour explores the effects of plastics in our ocean and its majestic creatures. You will snorkel in one of the most pristine ecosystems that is loaded with aquatic life and tropical fish, so much so that it is referred to as “The Sea Aquarium”.

Activities Include: Snorkeling The Sea Aquarium and sunken plane, Visiting Warderick Wells and The Whale Skeleton, Relaxing on Lil Norman’s sand bar and enjoying lunch at Mc Duffs Restaurant on Norman’s Cay

This experience is available as a Private Tour.

The Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park

The 176-square-mile Exuma Cays Land and Sea National Park, created in 1958, was the first land and sea park in the world and is one of the most successful marine parks. It is the first “no-take reserve” (all fishing is prohibited) in the wider Caribbean. This stretch of pristine water, land and beaches is an ecological preserve and wildlife refuge famous for its breath-taking marine environment.

The Sea Aquarium

The sea aquarium is sort of a natural exotic gathering of colorful fish and so many in fact that it looks like a staged aquarium from the inside. Here you will snorkel with many different species of fish including yellowtail snapper, grouper, sergeant majors, bar jacks and many many more. There is also an impressive array of coral life that creates the small reef you will be snorkeling on.

The Sunken Plane

Located just a few hundred feet from the Sea Aquarium is the Sunken Plane, here you can dive down and visit an underwater crash site of a small passenger plane that is loaded with fish and corals surrounding it! This is one of many different aircraft that have crash landed in the Exuma Cays.

Warderick Wells & The Whale Skeleton

Warderick Wells is the base for the headquarters of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, there is a small gift shop you may purchase shirts from and give donations to the park for conservation purposes. Here we will see what plastics can do to our marine life as we take a look at the skeleton of a 53ft sperm whale that died from eating a plastic bag!

Lil Normans and Normans

Lil Normans has a beautiful sandbar that we will park the boat and enjoy some of the crystal blue Bahamian waters. After relaxing for some time we will hop on over to Normans Cay and eat lunch at one of the best restuaraunts in the Exuma Cays, Mc Duffs.

Snorkeling The Exuma Cay's

Staniel Cay Reef

Snorkeling the Exumas Islands, Bahamas is considered one of the top reef and marine life experiences in the Caribbean. The coral reefs make up a magical underwater world for visitors snorkeling Exumas to enjoy, but they have much more to offer. Reefs are home to thousands of different species of marine life and function as a sustainable eco-system. They are also important for the whole ocean eco-system.

Snorkeling in The Exuma Cays With Staniel Cay Adventures

The shallow, crystal-clear azure waters reveal the true wealth of the Exumas, corals and sea fans scattered across the brilliant, white sand bottom. Turtle and grouper huddle with lobster under each sun-dappled nugget of coral. A halo of brightly tinted tropical fish surrounds each coral head, living jewels creating a wealth beyond gold. The Exumas are not on the regular tourist trail, which makes them even more inviting. Many of the islands are privately owned by celebrities and others, and have been the location for several films, most notably the James Bond film, Thunderball Grotto and Pirates of the Caribbean beach scenes.

Snorkeling the Exumas Islands, Bahamas is considered one of the top reef and marine life experiences in the Caribbean. The coral reefs make up a magical underwater world for visitors snorkeling Exumas to enjoy, but they have much more to offer. Reefs are home to thousands of different species of marine life and function as a sustainable eco-system. They are also important for the whole ocean eco-system.

Many of the marine organisms use carbon dioxide that is in ocean water to produce hard shells that are a natural filtration system. They help reduce the overall carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. If these reefs were destroyed, the rise in carbon dioxide would have a detrimental effect on all life. It is estimated that a quarter of the world’s fish breed in or near coral reefs. Often called barrier reefs, they also protect the island coastlines from erosion during storms and high tide.

Snorkeling is the simplest and easiest way to enjoy the underwater world that surrounds the Exumas Islands. It doesn’t require sophisticated gear or much training. For those who can swim, it just takes a few minutes to learn how to breathe with the snorkel. Children and first-timers can gradually get used to it and go farther and farther out. There are tens of thousands of shallow water sites that are full of coral reefs and marine life.
