Suggested for charters of 4 to 7 days.  Ideal for Scuba Divers and maximum island exploration


Day 1

Fly to Norman's Cay in the heart of The Exumas on a scenic charter flight from Nassau or Florida. Cliff and Liza, your professional crew, will be waiting to dinghy you out to your private yacht, SOLSTICE, anchored just off the beach. Change into your swimsuits and jump into the beautiful waters. Dry off in time for lunch before you set sail for Hammerhead Gulch, a fantastic dive and snorkel spot with healthy coral and big fish. Sail to nearby Highbourne Cay in time for sunset, and enjoy cocktails and appetizers as Cliff and Liza prepare dinner for you. Sleep peacefully in this calm cove called Horseshoe Bay, and dream about the adventures that await you the next day.

Day 2

Awake to the gorgeous Exuma waters surrounding you, and take a morning swim or paddleboard to the beach as Liza prepares breakfast for you. Snorkel the Octopus Garden, a gorgeous reef within our anchorage. Sail SOLSTICE on the Exuma Sound and fish for big game fish in the deep blue water or dive fantastic wall and wreck sites in settled weather. Anchor at Allan's Cay and experience the Bahamian Iguanas on the beach who will scurry out to greet you. Snorkel, paddleboard and relax in this beautiful group of cays, and enjoy another wonderful dinner at peace under the stars.

Day 3

Enjoy an invigorating sail South to Shroud Cay, just inside the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. Anchor in this protected paradise and dinghy, paddleboard or snorkel through the winding mangrove rivers. Enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery on earth- a breathtaking beach on the Exuma Sound and flowing currents that create a natural water park. Hike to the top of Camp Driftwood and bring your camera for incredible photos. Enjoy the solitude of this Shroud Cay anchorage for the night.



Day 4

Sail North to Norman's Cay and explore the many coves, lagoons, flats and beaches. Swimming, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and beachcombing are all excellent in this deserted paradise where we rarely encounter any other boats. Continue South to snorkel the famous sunken drug plane which creates a beautiful home for many corals and colorful fish. Try spearfishing for lobster (in season) on the nearby coral heads, and explore Twinkie Beach where you'll find one lone palm tree, a charming beach, and some of the best shelling around. Enjoy your last night stargazing on SOLSTICE at this beautiful anchorage.

Day 5

Awake to one last morning swim and Solstice breakfast, as you leisurely get ready to fly home from Norman's Cay. Dinghy ashore as you see your charter plane land, and enjoy your scenic charter flight. Hopefully, the magic of the Exumas will stay with you for a lifetime!
