Exuma – Stocking Island Stingrays (Video)

We’ve had a YouTube channel for a couple of years now, but haven’t uploaded more than a couple of our videos … well … that’s about to change! Today we’ve uploaded the first of 8 videos from our trip to Exuma, Bahamas – a true paradise just an hour from Florida. We hope you enjoy our series, starting with this amazing experience at Stocking Island where we got to swim with, feed and pet the stingrays! We only spent an afternoon on Stocking Island – we experiences a lot, but  missed so much – so we’ll be sure to spend a full day there when we go back.

10 Things To Do In Exuma, Bahamas

When you think of the Bahamas, you naturally think of Nassau. However there are many more islands in the Bahamas you can choose to visit. Exuma (or Grand Exuma as it is officially known) offers many direct flights from Canada and the U.S. With 365 islands in the chain, there’s one for every day of the year! If  you’re ready to give up crowded streets full of tourists, huge cruise ships and casinos then you’ll really love the peace and quiet of Exuma – one of the Out Islands of the Bahamas. 1) Rent a car! You don’t want to fly to this gorgeous group of islands and plunk yourself on a beach at an all-inclusive club – what a waste that would be!! Rent a car for at least a couple of days so you can get out, explore and immerse yourself in the local culture. At $350 to rent a car for the week it’s well worth the money as well as the freedom it affords you to get out and see more!
