Warderick Wells Cay is home to the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park. It stretches from Wax Cay Cut in the north to Conch Cut in the south. Note that all living and dead wildlife is protected. For this reason, visitors may not take anything from the park including rocks and sand.
Be sure to bring all supplies when visiting the park as there are no available supplies of any kind, including water. There is a small gift shop at the park headquarters. The proceeds go to support the park. There are no bathrooms, showers, or other shoreside facilities.
Warderick Wells Cay | Things to see and do
- Snorkel at Brad’s Reef at Long Cay.
- Hike Boo Boo hill, the tallest hill on the cay. It’s a short hike to the peak of Boo Boo Hill, and easy enough for most visitors. The top of the hill provides stunning views of the surrounding waters.
- See the giant whale skeleton at the park’s visitors center. The whale died after swallowing a plastic bag.
There are no marinas at Warderick Wells Cay. Also, anchoring is prohibited so yachts don’t destroy the coral and sponges. However, moorings are available for ten dollars per night. The fees provide needed revenue for the park and guarantee the coral and sponges will remain for future generations to enjoy.
