Peterson Cay, Grand Bahama Island

This peaceful, tropical park is inhabited only by wildlife, although tourists from around the world visit daily. The park can only be reached by boat. Most visitors paddle out in two or three person kayaks. The water around the cay is filled with fire coral (look, but don't touch!), iridescent parrotfish, dolphins and other exotic sea creatures. Guests spend hours snorkeling in the crystalline waters. A picnic lunch is offered on the beach. This must-see Grand Bahama attraction is truly an unforgettable experience. Ask your hotel tour desk for pricing.
