Visited the sea park as part of an excursion; friendly tour guide, knowledgeable, and willing to share local information; saw some fish and turtles, but overall very little so see in the water (except at a couple of locations).

If you go to Exuma, you must see the Cays! We had a one day trip (from 8 a.m. to 6p.m., you'll be tired but happy) and the landscape we saw was amazing. The ocean colors, blue sky, solitary beaches! We had great time!

Hi. We will be staying in Black Point in May and will have a boat. Is there a dock at the Land and Sea park where we an leave the boat to go hiking and snorkeling? Do we need a permit to park before we go or can we pay someone when we get there?
