This friendly and famous bar is a favorite with locals and visitors alike and is accessible by public ferry, across beautiful Elizabeth Harbour, or simply relax on the beach or by the pool, venture out on a kayak or book a snorkelling or diving trip.

Day 4 Flight to Long Island

Take a taxi back to airport to enjoy a short 25-minute flight to Stella Maris, Long Island with Captain Joel from Stella Maris Flight Services and his twin engine 6-passenger plane. The views of the sandbanks, reefs and various colours of the ocean over Exuma and Long Island are breath taking! Short transfer to Stella Maris Resort. Here take advantage of the great snorkelling and diving (with the sharks), play in the natural ocean pool, or tan on the various natural beaches. The hotel offers a variety of activities, depending on the day of the week.

Day 5 Complimentary Snorkeling

Whether you are a seasoned snorkeler or a beginner…and we can teach you in minutes, nearby highlights such as Cape Santa Maria, Columbus Harbour, The Caves, Poseidon’s Point, or Coral Gardens – to name a few – will intrigue everyone. Along the East, the scenic drama is that of breathtaking coral formations, of giant parrot fish combing the shallows, of passing eagle rays showing off their moves, of turtles and grouper inciting the viewer’s delight. At the ‘calm‘ island side, sea garden formations and ever-so colourful coral heads, with their jewel-like whirrs of ‘residential’ school fish darting here and there, where crawfish allow up-close inspections, and where visits of traveling schools of jacks may leave you momentarily speechless, time will pass by without your noticing. The only effort you may have to apply is to remember to leave the water again, when your time is up.

Day 6 Day at Leisure

Why not try some fishing? Stella Maris Resort offers excellent bonefishing, unlimited reef fishing and exciting game fishing year round. Bonefishing: right at lee-side Adderley’s & Glinton’s Bays (minutes from the resort club), in the protected Columbus passage (north end/8 miles), and many other locations down south. Bottom and Reef Fishing: simply anywhere – lee-side and Atlantic side, from shore and by boat. Deep Sea Fishing: the Island’s east Atlantic shore is being washed by the North Equatorial Current, which transports huge schools of Blue & White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Rainbow Runners, Yellow & Black Fin Tuna, and Mahi-Mahi…to name a few! Fun for beginners and well seasoned fishermen alike!

Day 7 Departure to Cat Island

Transfer back to the airport and 20 minute flight to New Bight, Cat Island on the hotels own private plane. 5 minute transfer to the hotel Fernandez Bay Village (payable locally). Stay in the cosy, rustic, secluded and romantic hotel on a long, private beach.

Day 8 Rest and Relaxation

Enjoy snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, sunbathing and beach combing. Relax and wind down, enjoy the sunset and climb Mt. Alvernia, the highest “mountain” in the Bahamas, at 206ft (70m)

Day 9 Day at Leisure

Try some water skiing or wake-boarding to work up an appetite. After lunch, a sightseeing trip along Cat Island’s coast may be just the way to digest your meal. Small settlements of brightly painted houses and ancient plantation ruins dot the way. Then anchor up and snorkel a living coral cay, or do some bottom fishing.

Day 10 Return Journey to Nassau

Transfer to the airport and Sky Bahamas flight back to Nassau arriving at 11.00am. Connecting flights to the US should not be before 2.00pm. Or take the afternoon flight at 5.00pm and complete your Bahamas Experience with another 2-3 nights stay in Nassau or on Paradise Island.
