Destination... a beautiful deserted island, for a relaxing picnic lunch on the beach.  Our full-day tour starts mid-morning with a bus ride to the lunch site. En-route we point out native plant species and enlighten you to the rich geological history of the Abacos. We splash the boats - and off we go.

Unique rock formations, blue holes, and blooming orchids combine to paint a beautiful backdrop for a very relaxing day.
Kayaking is simply the best way to experience the natural wonders hidden deep within the limitless shallow creeks that line the Mainland Island of Great Abaco.

Holes, 100's of feet deep, breath cold, pure seawater from deep within the earth's crust.
After lunch we paddle to our favorite snorkeling destination - where you will drift effortlessly with the current over beautiful soft-coral gardens that grow in the cuts between islands. Finally, we paddle back to the launch-site and we'll have you home just in time for a sundowner!

We Currently offer the following excursions:

About - Abaco Outback
Last year, while driving our little 9-seater bus down the Great Abaco Highway en-route to Marsh Harbour, we were astounded at the vast raw wilderness that still exists in this part of the world. How lucky we feel that we were actually living in the outback, the outback of Abaco. So was born our company dedicated to its preservation. My wife and I built this little business from scratch. With the help of a friend here and a friend there, turning our idea into a reality. We keep it simple. Erin and I consider it our obligation to share with you our love for these enchanted places, creating an inherent need for their preservation. Contact us for more information on current expeditions, prices, and availability.
