Everyone's Travel Club here, day two of our quick trip to the Bahamas. We kayaked from our resort (a resort review coming soon) to the smallest National Park in the Bahamas - Peterson Cay.
Peterson Cay is a very small island, surrounded by a coral reef, about a mile offshore. You have to take some kind of watercraft to get there (I guess you could swim, probably not a great idea though). We made a about a 5 hour trip out of it, coming from our resort (Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach). If you zoom in on the map above the resort is listed (it's between the two waterways to the West).
OK, so we weren't the first to get there...guided kayak tours leave from the mainland (check them out here) and boats from the other side of the island frequent the park (bringing visitors) too.
Dark and coral-y. In the distance - dark and stormy...time to paddle back!
All and all, a great day trip. It is always great to paddle to a specific destination, rather than just along the shore like a lot of our trips. I'm not sure if we would pay to go with a huge group (like the one pictured before), it felt nice to paddle up, enjoy, and leave when we wanted!
