Bahamas destination highlights
This private island oasis has a sheltered natural harbour, first-class marina, luxury cottages, cabanas and waterfront dining. This quiet, unspoiled island offers island excursions, bike riding, hiking, fitness and nature trails. This is the perfect stop to transition from the excitement of Nassau and Paradise Island to the tranquil lifestyle of the Out Islands.
The Exumas are the heart of the Out Islands of the Bahamas. The Exumas are more remote than the main islands and much more laid back. Island life is not ruled by the clock or the cell phone. Rather, the days pass in rhythm with sea, the sun, the moon and the swaying palm trees. Staniel Cay is known by yachtsmen everywhere for the open hospitality of friendly bars and restaurants. Guests will want to swim and dive the scenic Thunderball Grotto where the James Bond movie “Thunderball” starring Sean Connery was filmed.
Staniel Cay has a small airport that offers scheduled commercial air service between Staniel Cay and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For charter guests from South Florida, Staniel Cay is an especially convenient point of embarkation.
The world-famous Swimming Pigs of Big Major Cay
Not far from Staniel Cay is the small island of Big Major Cay which is uninhabited except for a small community of pigs. How these friendly pigs came to take up residence on Big Major is not known. When a boat arrives, the pigs swim out to make their greetings. It’s easy to see that they are in pig heaven and loving every minute of their own porcine paradise. While Big Major Cay is famous in a big way, other islands have their own off-beat claims to fame. The captain and crew of Never 2 Nauti are happy to share their secrets of the Bahamas with you.
