"What a wonderful week it has been – great paddling, ambiance and camaraderie. I have tons of photos and wonderful memories of our time together. Here's to our next adventures – We'll be back.” -Jo-Lynne

Find your slice of Bahamian paradise in the serene Exuma Islands. Remote beaches and the shimmering, turquoise Caribbean await you along this less-traveled region of the Bahamas. Far away from bustling Nassau, here you’ll find a more relaxed pace and beautiful islands to explore by kayak. This trip is for those who want the tropical paradise without the crowds.

Day 1:    The trip officially begins at Arrivals of the Exuma International Airport (GGT) where you will meet your Northwest Passage guides and transfer to the evening’s accommodations. We’ll gather for a round of welcome drinks and discuss the week’s itinerary before setting off for our first dinner in the beautiful Exumas. (D)

Day 2:    Today begins our kayaking exploration of Great Exuma and the surrounding islands. We’ll choose our exact kayaking destination for the day based on the current weather patterns. Expect to be mesmerized by the turquoise waters and wildlife. (B, D)

Day 3:    We continue making our way along the Great Exuma shoreline, sampling the local cuisine and coffee fare as we go. Skin diving opportunities abound, so don’t forget your mask and snorkel. We’ll finish our day’s paddle across the bay from Stocking Island. (B, D)

Day 4:    Today we explore nearby Stocking Island, renowned for its beautiful beaches. If conditions are right, there may be an opportunity to feed rays at a beach on the south side of Stocking Island. We’ll return to the shores of Great Exuma. (B)

Day 5:    Depending on the day’s weather conditions, we will either explore the tiny islands (called cays) to the west of Great Exuma, explore the beaches of Little Exuma or tour Elizabeth Harbor by motorboat.  (B, D)

Day 6:    Your Northwest Passage guides will assist in your airport transfers. (B)

*This is our intended itinerary.  As with any adventure, factors outside our control may alter the itinerary.

** We will be prepared to comply with the, as of now, required Rapid COVID-19 antigen testing to be administered 96 hours after arrival in country.

Sometime between 500 and 800 AD, Taínos began crossing in dugout canoes from Hispaniola and/or Cuba to the Bahamas. Suggested routes for the earliest migrations have been from Hispaniola to the Caicos Islands, from Hispaniola or eastern Cuba to Great Inagua Island, and from central Cuba to Long Island (in the central Bahamas).
