Thunderball Grotto Staniel Cay

Retrace 007’s swim-finned steps with an unforgettable excursion to this famous turquoise grotto.

Cue the martinis, bombshells in bikinis, and MI6 secret weapons. Thunderball Grotto, an underwater cave that’s been featured in two James Bond movies, also happens to be one of the most spectacular places to snorkel in the Bahamas.

A short boat ride from the northwest coast of Staniel Cay in the Exumas, Thunderball Grotto has played host to several silver screen gems, including Bond flicks Thunderball (1965) and Never Say Never Again (1983), Splash (yes, the one where Daryl Hannah plays a mermaid), and Into the Blue, starring Jessica Alba.

In Thunderball, Sean Connery’s James Bond heads to the Bahamas to recover two nuclear warheads stolen by global terrorist organization SPECTRE.

It is a destination that most people that we know, stop off at for a day trip during a Caribbean Cruise. But as it turns out, The Bahamas are outstanding and the Exumas are undeniably the crown jewel of the island chain.

We had the chance to enjoy this quiet cay in the heart of the Exumas where we spent a lot of time in the water. Johnny Depp, Oprah and Faith Hill all have islands nearby, and Staniel Cay is just a few minutes by boat to Thunderball Grotto itself. Sean Connery and the gang hung out at the Yacht Club of Staniel Cay during filming and photos can be seen all around the bar.
