Adventures & tours

If you have a need for speed, a daylong excursion with Powerboat Adventures blasts you 38 nautical miles over to the Exuma Cays.

You'll leave the Paradise Island dock at 9:30 a.m. and slowly move through the harbour. Then, as soon as the no-wake zone is behind you, the boat is put to the test. With its 2,000-horse power motor cranked to the max, it skims across the shallow ocean and you quickly lose sight of Nassau.

The first stop is at Allan's Cay, where iguanas wait in the shade of sea grape trees until the boat arrives. The crew tosses some nibbles to them so you can get up-close-and-personal with these metre-long reptiles, also known as Bahamian dragons. They are considered an endangered species, and the crew is enthusiastic about their survival.

Back on board, you'll pass by reefs until the boat slides into the dock at Ship Channel Cay. Enjoy the sun and the sand at this private oasis or take part in the stingray and shark feeding session. Protected by the Bahamas National Trust, the Exuma reefs house a wide variety of sea creatures that you can see clearly if you go snorkelling.

Powerboat Adventures offer a great tour that includes a delicious lunch, drinks and snacks throughout the visit and plenty of free time for you to kick back and relax.
