Itinerary

Map
The Exuma Cays are the islands in the Bahamas that are often forgotten. From the swimming pigs at Big Major Beach to the vibrant marine life at Warderick Wells Cay Marine Park, your cruise will never cease to amaze you.
DAY 1: Palm Cay Nassa
Embark at 6 pm at the port of Palm Cay. You'll get to know your fellow passengers and crew over dinner.

Optional: If you arrive before the boarding time, you can buy a pass for the beach, swimming pool and private bar (this pass can also be used on the last day after returning to base).

Day 2: Palm Cay Nassau - Highborn Cay
For the first stop on your cruise, you'll drop anchor on the beach at Highborne Cay. You'll spend the day in idyllic surroundings, with turquoise waters and a soft sandy beach. This is the perfect time to try your hand at water sports, such as paddle boarding and kayaking, or take a stroll along the beach and take in the scenery.

DAY 3: Highborn Cay - Shroud Cay

Today, you'll spend the day at Shroud Cay. On the programme: a tour of the surrounding mangrove swamps by dinghy or kayak, followed by a swim in the lagoon known as the "washing machine". This name was given to the lagoon because of the strong tidal currents that form a small ocean whirlpool. You can also take the opportunity to sunbathe on its gorgeous beach.

DAY 4: Shroud Cay - Staniel Cay
A cruise in the Exumas would not be complete without a visit to Big Major Beach to see the famous swimming pigs. After this, you will have a snorkelling session in the Thunderball Cave. End your day with a scenic walk around Staniel Cay village.

DAY 5: Staniel Cay - Compass Cay – Cambridge Cay
This morning, you'll discover Rachel's Bubble Bath, a natural pool with translucent water. You'll then head off to Compass Cay, where you can swim with nurse sharks, which feed mainly on crustaceans and small fish. You'll end the evening at Cambridge Cay, a peaceful anchorage perfect for spending the night.

DAY 6: Cambridge Cay – Warderick Wells Cay
Set sail for O'Briens Cay (next to Johnny Depp's former island) in the morning for an unforgettable snorkelling session in this "natural aquarium". You'll then sail to Warderick Wells Cay, where more than 30 sandy beaches await you. Don't miss the exceptional view from the top of Boo Boo Hill before re-boarding for Norman's Cay in the afternoon. Here you'll have the chance to swim in the shallow waters, which are home to a plane wreck that once belonged to a drug cartel.

DAY 7: Norman's Cay - Allan’s Cay
To round off your cruise in style, you'll set sail early to visit Allan's Cay in the company of the island's iguanas. You'll return to Palm Cay Nassau at the end of the day while enjoying your last dinner on board.

Optional: Transfer to Atlantis Paradise Island at 8 pm to visit its casino, tourist complex and aquarium. Return around 10 or 11 pm

DAY 8: Palm Cay Nassau
Your cruise ends after breakfast (around 9 am).
Your stops:
Palm Cay Nassau > Highborn Cay > Shroud Cay > Staniel Cay > Compass Cay > Cambridge Cay > Warderick Wells Cay > Norman’s Cay > Allan’s Cay > Palm Cay Nassau
