Island Boy Adventures | Adventure Near Great Exuma Resort

May 09, 2015

A trip to Exuma wouldn’t be complete with an exploration adventure with Island Boy Advenuters! Less than twenty-five minutes from our Great Exuma resort, Island Boy offer many exciting excursions that will show you a more exciting side of the island. Choose from excursions like swimming with sharks in Compass Cay, one of the most beautiful and remote islands in the world. The Island Boy guides will transport you to Compass on board their 35-foot center console cruises and organize your whole excursion, so you don't have to plan anything. Sign up for a guided fishing trip and learn how to catch yellowtail, bonito, wahoo, dorado and more. After a day of fishing with captain Antonio Johnson, the guides will also clean and prepare your catch of the day for a grilled fish dinner. Snorkel underwater caves, like Thunderball Grotto, made famous in the James Bond film of the same name, and see the underwater wildlife that is unique to Bahamian Cays. Dive for starfish, lobsters and conch in the clear crystal blue water. If you are more in the market for a day of relaxation, then Island Boy can show you some of the best-secluded beaches in Great Exuma, such as Sandy Cay. The Island Boy guides have been leading tours of Exuma’s best beaches for over twenty years, and they know the area like no others. So enjoy a picnic or relax on a towel and enjoy the peaceful quiet of these beautiful Bahamian beaches. Have a soft spot for animals? Let the Island Boy team plan a trip for you to feed wild iguanas and Exuma's iconic swimming pigs. Feel wild iguanas in their natural habitat and swim, play and feed wild pigs, both a very unique Exuma experience. After a day filled with adventure, head back to our Great Exuma resort for a relaxing evening and a day well-spent.
