We offer customized tours on land and sea that could easily be tailored to your specific needs; prices vary, depending on the location/distance. Here are some examples:

Cave Tour
Our tour visits the bat caves at Gun Bluff and McKai, which are more easily accessible from the sea. Many of them have majestic limestone formations that take on unusual forms and shapes.

Historical Tour
The road tour lets you explore the old cotton plantation at Richmond in Southeast Landrail, a town that used to be a major port for The Bahamas; two pillars still stand and the ruins include a monument dated 1795. By boat we visit the cannons at Marine Farm, a British military compound in the 18th century that still has remnants of their occupation: several cannons that have the king's seal, drawings, and other artifacts.

Lighthouse Tour
You'll visit Bird Rock Lighthouse and get a history of the site as you explore; you will see local seabirds (frigates) in their natural habitat. 

Other Tours

  • Our Eco-tour explores Long Cay, home to wild goats in the brush and ruins, plus flamingos feeding on the south shore.
  • Snorkeling (half or full day) on the reefs off Crooked Island and Long Cay; see lobsters in their man-made condos/shoals that provide shelter for them in the ocean.
  • Fishing (half or full day) on the reefs for snapper, or bonefishing in the flats; you'll have to bring your own rods.

Transportation
We use an 18-foot or 21-foot Boston Whaler for four to six persons on our sea trips, but can make provisions for larger groups on a 28-footer; a flats boat is used for bonefishing; land tours are via car or mini-van, depending on the group's size.
