While you enjoy these protected waters you can see the beach where the first settlers landed, paddle over to visit the historic Lighthouse, adventure down the two creeks at the rear of the harbour. Along the way see if you can spot one of the several turtles living in the Harbour or venture out into the Sound and take a trip to the beach at Nathan’s Bay on the northern end of Elbow Cay. Be on the lookout for starfish, nurse sharks and sting rays.
Explore this quiet sound that starfish and sting rays call home. Weave around groves of red mangroves, stop to bask in the sun at one of the many small beaches in the Sound or jump in and cool off in the clear blue waters. The famous Tahiti Beach is only a short paddle to the south. Along the way you’ll drift over patch reef, sandy bottoms and sea grass beds, each thriving with life. Keep an eye out for turtles, sting rays, conch, fish and shore birds who like to feed in the area.
Explore Elbow Cay
Start from one of several points on Elbow Cay: Tahiti Beach, White Sound or Hope Town Harbour, and paddle along the shore to another destination and get a pick up. Its a great way to see more of the island from a whole new perspective. Along the way you can see shorebirds hunting along the rocky shore, turtles feeding on seagrass and fish darting under your kayak.
Located south of Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco the Snake Cay area is a winding maze of shallow mangrove tidal creeks. Difficult to access by motor boat, kayaks make the perfect vehicle for exploring the unqiue beauty of this area. If you visit Snake Cay, you will see something few in Abaco get to experience. Turtles, sharks, conch, fish and orchids await! Spend a morning or an afternoon on this adventure of a lifetime!
