Green Turtle Cay, Bahamas
I don’t have to tell you that the Bahamas is an AMAZING place to visit, I’m sure you already know. But I will show you some cool things to do and pictures that will make you want to book a ticket right now. Most of these things are from Green Turtle Cay, a smaller island of the Bahamas.

Where Is Green Turtle Cay, Bahamas?
The Bahamas are islands off of Flordia, Green Turtle cay is an island of the Abaco island and apart of the “Abaco Out Islands” and named after all of the green sea turtles that inhabited it.
What Is There To Do All Day?
To be honest I was pretty entertained just walking around the town with all of the bright colored houses and sitting on the beach but there are a lot of cool things to do as well. Popular activities are snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming with stingrays, turtles, and sharks, sailing, deep sea fishing, and visiting local pot cakes (orphaned dogs).
I went snorkeling with Brendel’s Dive Center and it was amazing (You can scuba dive also). Going out on the boat for a dive/snorkel is great. I saw dolphins, swam with sharks, sea turtles, stingrays and big grouper. Swimming with sharks was my favorite part, they were about 6 feet long and it was a total adrenaline rush! Brendel catches fish on the way and cooks it up for everyone to eat, then allows you to feed the leftovers to the stingrays. On one of the trips, he will let you spear for lobster and cook them up.
On a deep sea fishing excursion, one lady caught a seagull! As she cast out her line it caught the hook and was flying around, stuck.
If you want to explore the island, rent a golf cart to beach hop and explore the local shops. There’s also a golf course to golf at.
