Bonefishing in the sandy flats of Exuma is magical.

Private Castaway Getaway
Picture yourself sitting in a comfy beach chair, feet in the white sand, sun high above, staring out at nothing but blue waters and hearing nothing but the gentle sound of waves hitting the shore. Hold in one hand the hand of your lover, and in the other, a glass of incredible wine. Imagine Paradise. Enjoy the entire day living the dream on the castaway getaway. In the morning, your butler will pack a delectable picnic basket, a bottle of wine, and a cooler of drinks to take with you on your escape. You will depart Great Exuma by boat and be carried to an uninhabited island where the captain will set up beach chairs, a colorful umbrella, and your picnic supplies before snapping your photo and leaving you to your own devices. As the sun starts to go down your captain returns to bring you back to the luxury of Emerald Bay.
