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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Persons who are physically challenged or in wheelchairs might have difficult taking the tours because of the modes of transportation and rough terrain at the sites.
