Activities - Sandy Cay Iguana Tour

Sandy Cay Iguana Tour

The Bahamas are home to more species of rare rock iguanas than any other Caribbean island nation. Each iguana species is unique to the island which they inhabit, varying their colors solid gray to a kaleidoscope of green, orange, and red, blue, yellow and pink. Our spectacular Sandy Cay excursion originates from our very own beach and will take you to their natural habitat and perhaps one of the most breathtaking sandbars off the west coast of Long Island.

The resort’s exclusive Sandy Cay Iguana Tour (9am – 2pm) takes you an hour by boat to explore Long Island’s coast over every shade of Bahama blue imaginable; and then on to the Sandy Cay, home of the iguanas and blockbuster Hollywood movie Pirates of the Caribbean. On the cay, you will spend some time exploring the island and meet the resident iguanas, wade the shallows with sting rays and lemon sharks and marvel at the majestic pair of Osprey who make their home atop the tallest tree on the Cay. While you explore, your boat captain and first mate will prepare the sandbar for your beach picnic complete with umbrellas for shade and beach chairs for lounging. You will truly feel you are the first (or last) humans on the planet. The ultimate ‘escape’ and a day you will not soon forget.
