Swim with Nurse Sharks

October 06, 2016

There is a thrill seeker in all of us, dying to burst out. For those of you that are ready to take the plunge, we suggest you head over to Compass Cay to take a dip with some real island locals that are bound to show you a good time. **Cue Jaws music** No, we aren’t talking about people, we are talking about the friendly nurse sharks of Compass Cay, they have been a sight to see since they inhabited the area. Tourists and locals alike take a dip with these approachable little guys on the regular, they love to have visitors and know how to show you a good time. Don’t let their iconic fin scare you, the nurse shark is one of the most docile creatures in the ocean. Make sure you grab your GoPro and a little courage to dive into the pit and maybe we will send you home with some bragging rights.
