Paddle into paradise, as you venture into the Lucayan National Park on our guided kayak expedition. Our expert island guides will lead you into the spectacular 42-acre eden for an amazing half day tour.
This spectacular ecological reserve, established by the Bahamas National Trust in 1982, offers visitors the chance to explore the pristine beauty of this Caribbean oasis. After a short tutorial on paddling and safety, cast off in one of our wide, stable two-person kayaks to explore the gorgeous environs of the wildlife preserve.
The tour will voyage into the interior of the park across the placid waters of the shallow estuaries. Glide into paradise as the dappled sunlight shines though the lattice of the mangrove canopy. Land your kayak on the remote shore of Gold Rock Beach. Gaze out at the coastal vista as you eat lunch underneath a dune-top shelter. After satisfying your appetite, take a dip in the crystal-clear water, comb the beach for seashells, sunbathe, or simply relax in the shade of the casuarinas.After your visit to the beach, you have the option of hiking into the unspoiled environs of the park on a guided nature walk.
Discover an oasis of indigenous plant-life, including mangroves, ferns and a panorama of exotic flowers. A multitude of songbirds, including the stripe-headed tanager, will serenade you as you saunter through the six distinct ecosystems found in the park. Raquel, the raccoon, may even show up to appeal to our guides for some tasty leftovers. Descend into the mysterious caves, where anthropologists have unearthed -- among the many stalagmites-- Lucayan relics, including the artifacts of ancient burial rituals.
Our guides provide an interesting narrative about the culture of the Lucayan Indians, who once inhabited Grand Bahama Island before the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492.
