Explore Beautiful Underwater Caves

Just a short ride west from Staniel Cay is Thunderball Grotto, a limestone formation with a hidden cave inside. The grotto is well known as a filming location for the James Bond movies, “Thunderball” and “Never Say Never Again.” An alternative underwater cave we might explore is the beautiful caves of Rocky Dundas.

*If time permits, we will make a stop at a tranquil sand bar in the middle of these vibrant turquoise waters to take advantage of an amazing photo op….or maybe even stop to feed The Bahamian Rock Iguanas native to Allen’s Cay!

Included in Your Exuma Day Experience

Rocky Dundas is two underwater caves in one. Prepare to witness the sights of ancient stalactites & stalagmite, which are nowhere else to be seen in this area of The Exuma Cays. The caves have beautifully colored algae covered walls. Take a dive into the entrance of the larger cave and witness some ancient features, like fossilized beetles, within the walls. When you are snorkeling around Rocky Dundas be sure enjoy the underwater sea life and prepare to make memories!
