Depending on the tide, this unique pool is either a peaceful lagoon or a bubbling bath.

Climb to Boo Hill, looking for the stunning white-tailed tropical bird that nests in the bush. Walk the beautiful beaches, particularly where the skeleton of the 53-foot sperm whale still lies on the sand. This picturesque harbor is another perfect spot for a relaxing evening under the stars.

Day 5

Cruising Day 5 –Shroud Cay and Normans Cay

Sail to the southern end of Norman’s Cay where you can snorkel the sunken DC 3 aircraft, and view thousands of fish throughout the wreckage. A trip through the very shallow inside the lagoon at Normans will also be exciting as you tour the famous Cocaine Cave and Conch cave. Stop and snorkel or Scuba dive on sites such as the Octopus Garden or Hammerhead Gulch. At Shroud Cay, the shallow tidal pools and mangroves around the cay are inhabited only by sea turtles, crawfish, conch, fish, and various birds.

Just off the dock, you can see nurse sharks swimming just beneath the water as they seek out bits of scraps left over from the day’s catch. After lunch, we head to Allan’s Cay and feed the Bahamian Rock Iguanas the only inhabitants and come out on the beach to be fed. Sail south to Sampson Cay. Drift dive Sampson Cut and enjoy the beauty beneath you as jewfish, spotted eagle rays and giant horse-eye jacks swim by amongst purple gorgonian fans waving in the gentle current.
