This square-mile park is known for its pristine beauty, outstanding anchorages and breathtaking marine environment. The headquarters building and visitor centre is located on Warderick Wells, and mooring sites are situated throughout the park. In the early s several individuals and events combined, leading to the creation of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park on July 13, by a special act of parliament. Four men in particular played key roles in paving the way for this historic legislation. Beard had made general representations in Nassau about protecting a section of the Exuma Cays, and both Pough and Ray promoted the idea of a land-and-sea park, which was then a novel concept. All these individuals joined forces, and by January they had organised a scientific expedition under the auspices of the New York Zoological Society. The survey team called for an organisation modelled on the British National Trust to acquire lands and manage protected areas throughout the Bahamas.

We pulled in for ice and to see the big whale skeleton. It is a well protected little spot. A little difficult to get into with a big boat. Beautiful snorkeling spot at the entrance to the park. We spent 1 week on a live aboard dive boat named Cat Pplau. The crew of 4 took great care of us and could not have been better. We had beginning divers and an experience diver.

Jump to navigation. The square-mile Exuma Cays Land and Sea National Park, created in , was the first land and sea park in the world and is one of the most successful marine parks. It is the first "no-take reserve" all fishing is prohibited in the wider Caribbean. This stretch of pristine water, land and beaches is an ecological preserve and wildlife refuge famous for its breath-taking marine environment. Scuba diving and snorkeling are popular here, and you can encounter nature first-hand by feeding the endangered Bahamian iguanas or catching a glimpse of the elusive hutia, with the assistance of one of the professional guides.

It covers square miles beginning at Wax Cay Cut in the north and stretching some 22 miles southward to Conch Cut and extending out approximately four nautical miles on either side of the cays. It is a no-take zone by both land and sea - nothing living or dead, can be removed from the park. The headquarters building and visitors centre is located on Warderick Wells and several moorings sites are situated throughout the park. Key biodiversity During April to August each year these isolated cays become home to many species of nesting seabirds. The eastern cliffs of Shroud Cay hosts a large colony of White-tailed Tropicbirds and Clapper rails and Yellow Warblers nest in the mangrove wetlands. These birds are nocturnal, they only come ashore as night. The birding highlight on Warderick Wells is the colony of White-tailed Tropicbirds nesting in the seaward cliffs at the north end of the island.
