The Exumas is a stunning chain of islands in the Bahamas known for pristine crystal-clear turquoise waters, miles-long white sand beaches, and abundant (and unique!) wildlife. Because these islands are located well off the more-travelled main island of Nassau, Exuma excursions by boat are the best way to explore all of the natural wonders to be found here. From swimming with pigs to feeding iguanas, there are plenty of activities to choose from that will make your trip unforgettable.

The Exumas beckon travellers with unparalleled natural beauty and endless opportunities for adventure. With crystal-clear turquoise waters, powdery white sand beaches, and vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life, an Exuma excursion will impress even the most well-travelled visitor – some say it’s the most stunning destination they’ve ever seen.

While exploring the Exumas takes a bit more time because of their location, number of islands (360) and the fact that the chain extends about 130 miles in length. But they remain accessible due to Lynden Pindling International Airport on nearby Nassau, Bahamas.

So if you’re seeking an escape from the ordinary and yearning for a slice of paradise where adventure awaits at every turn, look no further than an Exumas excursion by boat. Whether you choose a private yacht charter, cabin cruise or day charter excursion, this idyllic destination promises an unforgettable holiday filled with natural wonders, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Top Exuma Excursions

Feed the famous swimming pigs

One of the most famous attractions for an Exuma excursion is Pig Beach, home to a group of friendly and adorable swimming pigs. These playful creatures have become a must-see for visitors who flock here to snap photos and frolic in the water with them.

The swimming pigs have become somewhat of celebrities thanks to social media and their appearances in various travel shows and magazines. They are incredibly photogenic and love interacting with visitors who come bearing treats like fruits or vegetables.

Another unique wildlife encounter you can have on an Exuma excursion is feeding the endangered Northern Bahamian Rock Iguanas at Allen’s Cay. As one of only two places in The Bahamas where these reptiles live, Allen’s Cay offers an opportunity for visitors to get up close and personal with these fascinating creatures.

Iguanas are herbivores so feel free to bring some leafy greens or fruits along on your excursion which they will gladly munch on! Make sure not touch them as they may bite if feeling threatened but otherwise enjoy observing them basking under the sun or scrambling around looking for food.

Don’t miss out on this incredible once-in-a-lifetime encounter…and don’t forget your camera because these little cuties love hamming it up for their visitors!!

Swim with gentle nurse sharks

For those looking for a more thrilling adventure, consider swimming with nurse sharks at Compass Cay Marina. These gentle giants are often seen gliding gracefully through shallow waters near boats waiting patiently for scraps leftover from fishermen cleaning their catches.

While many people might be wary about getting into the water with sharks, nurse sharks are actually quite docile and harmless unless provoked so there’s no need to worry! Just take care not to chase them or approach too closely when feeding time rolls around – keep respectful distance and watch in awe as they move effortlessly beneath the surface!

Exumas snorkel excursion to Thunderball grotto

The Bahamas offer many snorkeling opportunities. Thunderball Grotto is a famous underwater cave system located near Staniel Cay in the Exumas, made popular by the James Bond film “Thunderball.” This unique snorkelling spot features stunning coral formations, crystal-clear waters, and an abundance of marine life. Visitors can expect to swim through narrow passageways and chambers filled with colourful fish, sponges, and even nurse sharks.

Bring your snorkelling gear for this Exuma excursion, for an unforgettable experience exploring this mystical underwater world!

Hire a fishing guide for your Exumas excursion

An Exuma excursion for fishing is a must-do activity for any angler looking to reel in some impressive catches while surrounded by stunning tropical scenery. There are several options available for fishing enthusiasts, including deep-sea fishing and reef fishing.

Deep-sea fishing charters can be arranged from various locations in the Exumas, such as Georgetown or Staniel Cay. These trips typically take you out to deeper waters where you can target big game fish like marlin, tuna, and mahi-mahi. Experienced captains will guide you to prime fishing spots and provide all the necessary equipment for a successful day on the water.

Reef fishing is perfect for those who prefer a more relaxed day of angling closer to shore. You can expect to catch a variety of species like snapper, grouper, and barracuda while enjoying breathtaking views of coral reefs teeming with marine life.

Explore the Exumas on a sailing yacht charter

Sailing charters are the ideal way to experience the Exumas, with the opportunity to visit the best islands of this unmatched destination without being landlocked at shore.

There are many options for sailing charters departing from Nassau. Experienced sailors can charter liveaboard yachts and sail themselves, but there are plenty of options for non-sailors!

Parties of two (or solo travellers) can choose an Exumas Cabin cruise with double cabin and private bath aboard a comfortable sailing catamaran for a week-long adventure like no other. The itinerary is designed to let you explore the most iconic places of the Exumas, without the crowds or rush of day charters. Plus, all meals are included!

For larger groups up to 10, consider a private yacht charter with a local skipper to show you all the can’t-miss spots. It’s a magical holiday experience your group will never forget, and more affordable than you might think.

Whichever Exuma excursion you choose, you can expect to cruise through crystal-clear turquoise waters surrounded by breathtaking scenery of secluded beaches, vibrant coral reefs, and picturesque cays. You’ll have opportunities to swim with marine life like colourful fish or even nurse sharks, explore hidden caves or grottos accessible only by boat!


Ready to explore the Exumas by yacht? Choose a Dream Yacht charter departing from nearby Nassau. We have an option to fit your sailing experience and budget, from sail-it-yourself bareboat charters, to packaged Cabin cruises that include a skipper, hostess and prepared meals for the week.
