Plethora of Bonefish

For a trip you know will be a success, filled with great catches, you must go to the Exumas. This stretch of more than 350 cays in the Bahamas is truly an outdoor paradise.

Natural born predators, bonefish will spend time in low tide in search of food. The low tide makes it perfect for those on a fly-fishing excursion to make a catch. 


Despite a large amount of bonefish that live within the area's flats, the bonefish make your trip challenging and exhilarating. They are fierce and fast. Bonefish can sense threats and make their escape. 

A multitude of Cays to Explore

Each of the 365 Cays in the Exumas has a unique personality. Cays, which are low banks filled with sand, coral reef and more, are a tropical oasis. Filled with shallow waters, bonefish love what these cays have to offer. For parts of your trip you would like to see nature in its purest state, visit the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. The park is the first of its kind on the globe, with both untouched waters and land. As a protected area, it will never be developed on or have anything unnatural ruin its habitat.
