Guana Reef Snorkeling

Southeast of Georgetown off the east coast of Great Exuma, the snorkeling at Guana Reef is known for its stingrays cruising among the patch coral and coral heads in sand flats. This boat-accessed snorkeling dive is in 15 foot deep waters. It is located between Elizabeth Island and Man-O-War Cay.

To reach the snorkeling at Exuma Cays, most travelers will fly commercial airlines into Nassau on New Providence or fly into Freeport on Grand Bahama Island. To reach the out islands from Nassau, you can either use Bahamas Air (which is known for late departures) or use the mail boat ferry service (393-1064). The main airport at Exuma Cays is the Exuma International Airport (GCT). Note, it is sometimes possible to fly commercial air from southern Florida into Great Exuma Cay, such as the United/Silver Airways flights from Ft Lauderdale to Georgetown.
