HIGHBOURNE CAY & ALLEN CAY, BAHAMAS – by Ronan

After Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park, we pulled into port in Highbourne Cay Marina, where we were able to see nurse sharks, and reef sharks lurking around in the water right under our boat! After we were docked, we went bike riding around the island, found an isolated beach, and went kayaking. The next day, we took a short (5 minute) dingy ride over to Allen Cay,  which is an uninhabited cay full of wild iguanas. There were none on the beach as we approached, but with the hum of our dinghy motor approaching, dozens crawled out from the brush seeking fruit and vegetable snacks.

We were advised to be careful because the iguanas have sharp teeth and will bite if you get too close.

Our next of port of call, after Highbourne and Allen Cays, was Atlantis, Nassau . . .

P.S. There are no buses on Highbourne Cay!
