Most of us have been to aquariums. Perhaps you have even come up close and personal with a dolphin or sea lion in captivity.
But nothing can compare with the wild, aquatic adventures awaiting you in Exuma.
Exotic and pristine, Exuma’s living aquarium is yours to discover. From deep-sea fishing to snorkeling, there is no shortage of opportunities to catch a glimpse of some of the most beautiful Caribbean sea-dwellers. Exuma’s visitors even have the chance to come face-to-face with one iconic Bahamian creature: the stingray.
Feeding, swimming and interacting with stingrays can be an extraordinary experience, especially when done with some professional guidance. While stingrays may seem intimidating, they are gentle creatures and commonly hang out in coastal tropical waters.
At the Chat ‘N’ Chill, a popular bar and restaurant, these majestic animals often seen playing with the guests and thoroughly enjoying the attention. Stingrays around Chat ‘N’ Chill are lovable and easy to please: simply hold the conch in your palm and their mouths will suck it right up!
