Relax, Explore, & Swim

Located near the center of the Exuma Cays is Staniel Cay & Compass Cay, where we make a stop at one of these destinations for refreshments and a chance to get up close and personal with nurse sharks! You can be as interactive or passive as you wish, it’s up to you.

While we are stopped at Staniel Cay or Compass Cay, enjoy some drinks and food. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a leap off the pier at Compass Cay. From there snorkel and swim alongside the beautiful creatures or admire them up close from the pier without getting too personal. Nurse sharks are passive in nature although it is important to remember that they are SHARKS which are WILD animals whose behavior can of course not be predicted. Specific instructions will be given to those individuals who choose to snorkel with the sharks; most importantly, remain calm, respectful, and observant during this amazing interaction.

*It is not advisable for children to snorkel with the sharks as it may be difficult for children to appreciate the possible danger they could be in if their actions are inappropriate.

*Disclaimer* Seascapes Bahamas reserves the right to make changes to the itinerary when deemed necessary for the safety of our passengers and crew. The daily itinerary will be determined with consideration of the weather and tides. Our ideal schedule will include stops at Staniel Cay or Compass Cay to visit the nurse sharks, Norman’s Cay to check out a sunken plane wreck, Big Major Cay to feed the Exuma pigs, and exploration of an ocean cave! (However, if the tide is too high, current too strong, or waves to rough, the cave may be omitted.) *In the event that it is not advisable to sail to The Exuma Cays due to adverse weather conditions, we will offer an alternative course option closer to Nassau if at all possible.
