Yahaka Tours gets its name from what locals believe was the original name of Acklins used by the indigenous Lucayans. Our tours are designed to showcase the island's beauty and give you a peek into the way of life in the past.

Sample Itinerary of Experience

Cave Tour
Visit Jumbey Hole, Atwood Harbour, and Salina Point Cave, where you can see a large number of bats, strange but beautiful wall formations, and tree roots that stretch from the ceiling of the cave to the ground.

Iguana Tour
Take a 10-minute boat ride to Iguana Cay and have a unique adventure with Acklins' Iguanas.

Hutia Tour
The hutia is the lone indigenous mammal of The Bahamas and is only found on a few islands, like Acklins and the surrounding cays.

Historical Tours
Tour the island by car and visit a number of historical sites. Take a 15-20 minute boat ride to Castle Island Lighthouse. Or visit Samana Cay and see for yourself if it really was the first landfall of Christopher Columbus.

Snorkeling/Beach/Coral Reef Tour
Have the luxury of sunbathing, or go snorkeling and reef diving — on either Acklins, Crocked Island, or Long Cay.

Costs and Fees

Prices start from $150.00 and go up, depending on the tour package and distance to the sites.

At the age of 14, Patricka Ferguson saw something in the desolated island of Acklins that everyone else saw as just an undeveloped, mostly underpopulated island, with one road that goes north and south. She saw unspoiled beauty, untold history, and unexplored scenery. Because of that, she decided that the world should also see what she sees.

She has been exploring the island ever since and has vast knowledge about Acklins, some of which you cannot find by just reading a book or browsing the web.
