Norman Cay

Norman Cay is a small island in the Exumas, the Bahamas, about a hundred acres in size. An island with a spirit and a story despite its small size. It has been home to pirates, drug lords such as Carlos Lehder, filmmakers, explorers, writers, fishermen, and marine biologists throughout history. As popular as Norman Cay has become over time, it is almost untouched by man today.

Norman Cay is south of Highborne Cay as you sail the Exuma Cays from the north. There are good places for scuba diving in the Cay between Highborne Cay and the island.

If your yacht has scuba diving gear or an Aquasafari Dive Instructor on board, you can enjoy the beautiful marine world. Aquasafari takes care of every detail of your dive and even goes with you underwater.

Six miles long and one thousand feet wide, Norman’s Cay is one of the longest islands in the Exumas. The island has an airport where charter flights can operate, and this provides an option for charter guests to join their yacht or depart for Nassau instead of sailing back to New Providence.
