Visited the sea park as part of an excursion; friendly tour guide, knowledgeable, and willing to share local information; saw some fish and turtles, but overall very little so see in the water (except at a couple of locations).

There are many wonderful spots to visit in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. Warderick Wells is where the Park Headquarters are, and it's highlighted by a horseshoe shaped channel of exquisitely colored blue water, surrounded by beaches and land outside the channel and a sandbar that uncovers at low tide in the center. To me, this is one... More

We stopped at the park on our way back to Nassau on a sail boat. We put in at the beach outside of the park office, the Beach with the whale skeleton on it. It was a perfect spot with a covered table with shade and views that never get old. The channel thru the park is amazing with the... More

Visiting the Cays, a collection of over 300 small islands around Great Exuma was one of the highlights of our stay. Magnificent, sandy white beaches with crystal clear, azure water is like a phantasy. Make sure to take food to feed the different islands wildlife. Be careful who you select to take you on this trip. Go with one of... More

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

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!
