Water Sports

Exuma offers a wide range of water activities for people of all ages and levels of fitness. Here are some of our favorites to truly experience the Bahamas. Choose from diving, parasailing, kayaking, snorkeling and more!

Paddle Boarding

There are few areas in the world with more paddle boarding options than Moriah Harbor. One can paddle from a number of exquisite sandbanks and beaches to miles of untouched mangrove canal systems.

Fishing

Bonefishing
Access to hundreds of square miles of Exuma’s heralded southwest side bonefish flats is just a 5-minute boat ride from your home through the cut between Great and Little Exuma islands.

 

Deep-Sea fishing

A short 10-minute boat ride through Elizabeth Harbor to open water allows for targeting pelagic species like Mahi-mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna or deep-dropping for Snapper on the north side Great Exuma.

Diving

Explore some of the most diverse diving in the world. Located in the middle of one of the most fertile dive grounds in the Bahamas, Exuma offers an amazing variety of diving. The mangroves located in the Moriah Harbour Land and Sea Park are the birthing grounds for the reef fish in the area as the entire northern reef system is largely unexplored. The canal system that flows through this area is easy to navigate and provides an amazing platform to explore all the juvenile fish.

Sailing

Sailing in Great Exuma is a truly amazing experience. The close proximity between each island makes sailing to various restaurants or a beachside picnic a perfect afternoon excursion. For the sailing enthusiast, the northern protection of Stocking Island and the sheer size of Elizabeth Harbor make it an amazing place to compete. Every year, it is home to the National Family Island Regatta where traditional wood sloop racing is a revered national competition and a unique national pastime. It is the only regatta that begins with anchors and sails down and is an incredibly exciting race to partake in or observe.

Kayaking

The Bahamas offers some of the best ocean kayaking locations in the world. There is no better way to experience what Exuma has to offer than to embark on your own adventure!

Turtles, eagle rays, tropical fish, stingrays are all common sites on your way to the adventure.

Kitesurfing

Consistent winds, crystal clear, warm, sandy bottom waters, and pristine beaches make Exuma a fantastic kiteboarding destination.

Conditions range from waist-deep water for lessons, flat-water, sandbar rolling kickers, and waves. The windy season in Exuma is November through April.
