Eco Harbour Tour Adventure
Basque in the Bahamian sun while keeping your eyes glued to the water, for you never know what ocean animals will swim by to say hello. Fish, turtles and stingrays are just the start on this leisurely tour. Small groups of no more than 6 depart from the beautiful development of February Point aboard a pristinely kept 26 ft Twin Vee powercat with a true seafaring Captain. He will then take you on an unhurried journey around the historic Elizabeth harbour. Enjoy walking ankle deep along a submerged sandbar before donning snorkel gear, when you will then peer face to face with colourful fish and reef life. Ask questions and listen to the stories of life on these islands while enjoying the gentle breeze. Finally, you take a last swim in the beautiful waters of the Exumas at a white sand beach until it is time to return to shore.

Private Bahamas Bone Fishing
Bonefishing in the sandy flats of Exuma is magical. Depart from the resort with your ORVIS certified guide, and after a brief lesson and safety demonstration, cruise to the secret fishing spots of lore. Beautiful vistas along these coastal areas set the scene for saltwater anglers as the engines are turned off and your guide gently manipulates the boat silently through the waters by hand. Stand knee deep in the shallow aquamarine waters and cast your lines as you try to catch the silver ghosts. With a maximum of two guests per boat, bonefishing is perfect for the advanced fisherman.

Kayak in Paradise
Become one with your environment in this peaceful, close to nature journey! Following a safety & instructional briefing from one of your friendly, highly knowledgeable guides, you’re ready to claim your kayak and let your dreams take over. Leave the historical "Ferry Bridge" and slowly paddle your way through the shallow waters of the Moriah Marine Park. . Swim at a beach that is ever changing as you drift with the natural gentle current. Finally, kayak back to shore through a meandering maze of mangroves while your guides teach you about the birds and creatures that call this ocean jungle home.

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.
