Warderick Wells Cay | Things to see and do

  • Snorkel at Brad’s Reef at Long Cay. The underwater world is teeming with colorful reef fish and other tropical marine life.
  • 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 skeleton of a 50-foot sperm whale on display at the entrance to this protected area. Although it died after ingesting a plastic bag in the ocean, the sperm whale didn’t die in vain. It stands as a reminder for visitors to be mindful of the environment.
  • Explore the island. There are several marked walking paths where you can observe the island’s abundant plant and animal life. You may see curly-tailed lizards, Bahama mockingbirds, white-tailed tropicbirds, and yellow warblers.
  • Look for caves.
  • Kayak and look for nurse sharks and other marine life.


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.
