The Out Islands are synonymous with sport, from the depths of the Gulf Stream that yield big game fish to the coral reefs just off shore that are catnip to scuba divers. Sailing, kayaking and beach-combing add action to lazy days in the sun, while resident pink flamingos and rare Bahama parrots color local hikes.

Scenic beach, great for snorkeling and diving.
Wonderful spot in the Bahamas. This is one of our favorite beaches. Also, there are several great restaurants nearby. We loved The Dunmore.

An island in the Bahamas best known for its shark feeding dives.
An amazing island; completely free of typical "tourist scene." If you love nature, this is the place to go. We would definitely go again. Tip for getting there and away: Learn from our mistake, DO NOT FLY SOUTHERNAIR CHARTER. Either use BahamasAir out of Stella Maris airport or pay for your own private charter. SouthernAir Charter cancels their flights and this is apparently a "known" thing. We didn't know this unfortunately. They canceled our return flight because they didn't sell enough tickets. As a result, we lost our last day of vacation as well as the money we'd paid for our rental house, and what should have been one 10-hour travel day home, was turned into two days of travel home with a nearly 24-hr stay on Nassau (a place we never wanted to go).

This 176-mile land and sea nature reserve is filled with beaches and family fun and has played a major role in conservation of fish native to the Bahamas.
This boat tour was one of the best we have been on (ever!) - and it was our captain that made the difference. We saw lots of turtles and snorkeled in some great areas. We loved the sand bar and overall the entire experience. It was Capt Chris though that made it extra special by taking the time to tell us history of the island/s as we went along and even jumped in the water so we could get a closer look at the largest starfish I’ve seen! A truly enjoyable experience start to finish!!

Known for its crawfish, this small, picturesque island is a popular day trip destination. Let Bahamas Ocean Safaris be the first to welcome you to Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, Bahamas and introduce itself. James Dunnam, owner and Safari guide, was born in and spent his entire life in Spanish Wells, The Bahamas. He is a Licensed Captain with 30 years experience in Lobster diving and 20 years in deep sea fishing. His life experiences, knowledge of the sea, and unique perspectives are now applied to help others have the vacation of a lifetime.
James was a great host for a day on the water! Feeding his pigs and other animals on Currie Sound Cay was such a treat. We spotted loads of sea turtles, found a huge starfish, learned some cool history and shared a delicious lunch of cracked conch, seafood critters and mahi (and 10-12 french fries ;) For sure a highlight of our trip and we will definitely be back for another excursion!

Designed as a showcase for native plants and their importance to the people of The Bahamas, the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve has the distinction of being Eleuthera's first national park. Walk with nature in this sanctuary for over 300 species of native plants, 70 species of birds, and 100 species of medicinal plants. It features gardens and wetlands designed by world-renowned landscape architect, Raymond Jungles, as well as trails through over 20 acres of natural areas. Developed by Shelby White in honour of her late husband, Leon Levy, the Preserve is operated by the Bahamas National Trust.
We had no idea whatcto expect and we were pleasantly surprised. The Preserve is a class act with lots of educational opportunities or just a lovely walk through the Preserve. Everyone that visits the island of Eluethera should visit this Preserve. We spent 3 hours wondering the trails!

We warily made the trek to Lighthouse beach in our Nissan SUV after reading numerous reviews of the treacherous terrain/road to get there. We are so glad we made the journey to this breathtaking beach. It is everything the reviews say and more. Once the paved road ends it is about 3.5 miles on a single lane rock/sand/gravel road which takes care to navigate. You must have good ground clearance. Lighthouse bay this is the first thing you will see and where where we parked. Then it’s a short walk to lighthouse beach. You will need a 4x4 to make it up the hill and over to lighthouse beach but the walk is not difficult. The first thing you should do is walk the path up to the lighthouse and take in the view from the rock cliffs as you can see lighthouse beach (Atlantic side) and Lighthouse Bay (Bay side) from one viewpoint, it’s incredible. From there pick your spot and camp for the day. There are no facilities and make sure to take plenty of water.

Beautiful white sand beach. This island is owned by the cruise line. We were tendered here from our Holland America cruise ship. It makes for a nice relaxing day at the beach. They offer horseback riding on the beach and in the water for part of the ride, guided jet ski tours, kayaks, Hobie cats, water cycles, stand up paddle boards, snorkeling and stingray adventure. Barbecue lunch is very nice with plenty of shaded seating. There is a bar on the beach. Beach has plenty of free longe chairs. An awesome beach day.

This is possibly one of the most amazing places on earth. You can walk for miles and miles into the ocean and never get above your waist. My daughters had so much fun collecting sand dollars. It was a very peaceful and beautiful beach to relax the afternoon away.
