Guide to Compass Cay

Sharks And Bubble Baths

Just under the southern tip of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, Compass Cay has some very unique experiences, including natural cave formations, a very close encounter with some nurse sharks and the famous attraction of Rachel's Bubble Bath.

Arriving at Compass Cay on your yacht rental you will anchor down in one of the safest harbors in the Exumas. Completely protected on all sides this harbor offers everything you could possibly need for your vacation including a freshly made conch salad.

Compass Cay has 13 beaches for you to explore, which all come with excellent fishing possibilities. The nearby waters are teeming with life and you can be almost guaranteed to catch a fresh supper. Just some of the possible catches are grouper, snapper, yellowfin tuna and bonefish.

After catching a few fish, take a short stroll round the island to visit Rachel's Bubble Bath. Situated on the northern side of the island, the bath is actually a lagoon which is fed by the Sound. Water crashes over the edge of the lava rocks surrounding the lagoon, creating bubbles. Hence the name of the natural attraction. Perfect for cooling down from the Bahamian sun, this is an experience not to be missed. After cooling off, burn off some energy by conquering the highest peak on the island. Compass Peak is 92 feet high and offers staggering views of the island and of the surrounding Land and Sea Park.

A once in a lifetime opportunity available on Compass Cay is to remove your fear of sharks. From the docks of the Compass Cay harbor you can meet a friendly group of nurse sharks. Completely tame, even around young children, the sharks will come up on to the dock with you and even allow you to pet them. The owners of the sharks are always close at hand and can even give you the chance to feed the nurse sharks.

With so much to see and do, Compass Cay can become an integral part of your Bahamas experience. Start planning your itinerary today by looking through all the private superyachts available for Bahamas yacht charters.
