Peterson’s Cay Kayak Snorkel Adventure
Be adventurous with your stay and kayak from the mainland Freeport Grand Bahama to another Island smaller in size call Peterson’s Cay. Freeport Grand Bahama is 530 square miles in size and the smaller island is only 1 ½ acres in size.
Your day begins with pickup from your place of lodging. Once we have you in the vehicle the adventure begins. You will be introduced to the plan of the day during a narrative drive to your destination which will be catered to begin at the last pickup location.
Once at the launch site for kayaking, your guide will tell you what you need to know about the equipment you will be using such as kayak, paddle and dry bag. You will then receive kayaking instructions to assist for your comfort in this amazing adventure especially if it is your first time kayaking. After your instructions your guide will allow you to begin your kayak crossing. With every stroke of your paddle the second island that sits less than a mile of shore of the main Island begins to reveals its beach and vegetation. Less than 30 minutes later from start to finish your feet will rest in the white powdery sand which awaited your arrival across the turquoise sea. While there take it all in as you look at the colors of the clear shallow water and the mainland you kayak away from and just remember…you are there to explore the underwater world at the destination your feet now stands.
Snorkeling instructions will begin as your guide lays out the plan for an amazing guided adventure. You will be introduced to this colorful world of Sea Fans and their variations, Brain Coral, Pillar Coral, Sea Plums, Elk-horn Coral, Sea Rods and the list of Corals will continue on tour. Take in its variation of marine life, Trumpet fish, Grunts, Snappers, Parrot fish, Star fish, Eels, Turtles, Sting-rays, Puffer fish, Peacock Flounders, Christmas tree worms, Feather duster worms, Sea Anemones with many variations and the list will continue on tour. You will be guided at leisure pace to explore with your guide this very healthy snorkel destination for approximately 90 minutes or more. Your guide will point out marine animals and tell you about this world guiding you completely around the little island (Peterson’s Cay) for the best snorkeling experience Freeport Grand Bahama can offer.
After snorkeling, you will kayak back to the mainland of Freeport Grand Bahama. From here you will be driven to another destination. The other destination is a restaurant that sits on a beautiful beach. Here you will have lunch on a wooden deck that faces a turquoise sea. Then after lunch, relax in a hammock or lounge chair with drink in hand either a local beer or any of their frozen specialties and reminisce the experience you just had of information, kayak, snorkel and local dish while enjoying the view of Sun, Sand and Sea…
